Engine, Drive Train, and Suspension
Oldsmobile cars often projected the image of a proud businessman, decked out in his three-piece suit, on his way to the office. It was the scene of modern-day life in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Then something happened; Baby Boomers were coming of age and they didn't want their father's Oldsmobiles... they wanted style and power.
In 1964, Oldsmobile answered the call, offering a special Police Package called 4-4-2. It stood for 4-barrel carburetor, 4-speed transmission, and dual exhaust. Oldsmobile swung a heavy-weighted punch right at Pontiac's GTO. The Lansing Kid could not knock the heavy-weight champ out, but the 442 did make its mark in automotive history, as the classiest of all the muscle cars.
For 1966, Oldsmobile further changed its image with the introduction of the first mass-produced front-wheel drive model; the Toronado. The classy model provided a great ride, with performance and the sexiest lines of the year, making way for more models to come.
