1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Convertible Reserved Parking Fridge Magnet
1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Convertible Aluminum Parking Fridge Magnet
The 1966 4-4-2 shared a modest facelift with other Cutlasses. It came with a 400 ci L78 V8 rated at 350Â hp. Two new optional 400 ci engines offered even higher performance: the 360Â hp L69, with three two-barrel Rochester 2GC carburetors on a progressive linkage, and the rare W30. Besides the convertible, the 4-4-2 option was available on both hardtop and pillared coupes, which shared the same roofline. The new body had high, round rear fenders giving the car a more muscular appearance. The W30 engine added an outside-air induction system and a hotter cam, under-rated as producing the same 360Â hp as the L69. The battery was relocated to the trunk to make room for the air hoses, which prevented the package from being ordered on convertible models. Only 54 W30s were built by the factory, although an additional 97 were produced for dealer installation. The standard transmission was a three-speed manual with column shift and the two-speed Jetaway automatic with switch-pitch torque converter was optional. Hurst shifters became standard equipment with floor-mounted manual transmissions. The standard 350-horsepower 400 engine could be ordered with any of the four transmissions, while only manual transmissions could be ordered with the L69 three two-barrel option. Inside, a revised instrument panel featured two round pods for the speedometer and other instruments, replacing the horizontal sweep speedometer of 1964â€“65 models, but the rest of the basic dashboard designed was unchanged. Car Life tested an L69 4-4-2 with four-speed transmission and obtained a 0â€“60 time of 6.3 seconds and a quarter mile of 14.8 seconds at 97Â mph (156Â km/h). Motor Trend's similar test car ran 0â€“60Â mph in 7.2 seconds, with a quarter mile time of 15.2 seconds at 96.6Â mph (155.5Â km/h). Production slumped to 21,997. The 4-4-2 still constituted only about 10 percent of Cutlass sales.
