Oldsmobile F-85, its name lacked luster and it was overrun by flashier comrades such as the Chevelle and Skylark. It seemed to be a dull, ordinary, run-of-the-mill machine, and it fit right in with the Oldsmobile image the buying public had. The "schoolteacher's car" was the Oldsmobile image, and the F-85 seemed to be a part of that scene.... But, as the saying goes, looks can be deceiving.
In the midst of the full-out horsepower war of the 1960s and 1970s, Oldsmobile broke through the looking glass; no longer were they lost in Wonderland. Offering a full-fledged muscle car, some companies would have tried to place a cute-sounding name on it, but not Oldsmobile. They stuck tough and placed the number 442. Originally standing for 4-barrel carburetor, 4-speed transmission, and dual exhaust, it made its debut in 1964 as a special police car package. However, as the war of horsepower heated up, the name would change its meaning, but not its impact. Eventually coming standard with the 455 c.i. 4-barrel power plant, there was no doubt this one was all muscle car.
The Oldsmobile 442 may not have had the level of fame that the GTO did, or the sales that the Chevelle SS had, but nobody blended luxury and performance together like Oldsmobile did.
