1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Convertible Reserved Parking Fridge Magnet
1965 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Convertible Aluminum Parking Fridge Magnet
With the GTO receiving GM corporate sanction to receive their full-sized car's 389 V-8, Oldsmobile followed suit and replaced the 4-4-2's standard 330Â CID with the new 400Â CID (6.6Â L). The definition of "4-4-2" was then restated as referring to 400 cubic inches, a four-barrel carburetor (a 515 cfm Rochester four-jet), and two exhausts. Output for the big engine rose to 345Â hp (257Â kW) and 440Â lbâ‹…ft (597Â Nâ‹…m). The standard transmission became a three-speed manual with column shifter, with a floor shifter four-speed and Oldsmobile's two-speed Jetaway automatic transmission as optional. A heavy duty three-speed with Hurst floor shifter was introduced as a mid-year option. Other touches added to the 1965 were chrome body side scoops adorned with 4-4-2 badging, chambered dual exhaust pipes, chrome single snout air cleaner, and 4-4-2 badging on the dash. Late in the year option N98 was added, which were chrome 14Â in Ã—Â 6Â in (356Â mm Ã—Â 152Â mm) wheels. It also offered standard bucket seats when optioned on the Cutlass and a 6,000 rpm tachometer, mounted in the optional console, more as decoration than for usefulness. Retractable front seat belts were optional. The turning diameter was 41 feet. Modern Rod tested a 1965 F85 4-4-2 with the four-speed manual, slicks, and headers and obtained a quarter mile acceleration of 13.78 seconds at 102.73Â mph (165Â km/h); Car Life's automatic 1965 ran the quarter mile in 15.5 seconds at 89Â mph (143Â km/h), with a 0 to 60Â mph time of 7.8 seconds. Car and Driver tested a 1965 4-4-2 and did 0â€“60Â mph in 5.5 seconds. Offered in four body styles, 4-4-2 sales rose to 25,003, including 3,468 convertibles.
