1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 W-30 Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
From the very beginning, Oldsmobile had big plans for the Cutlass to dominate the muscle car era. The 442 package debuting in 1964 was just the start of it. Other muscle cars of the same time period were struggling to keep up with the 442’s already pavement blistering performance capabilities. When equipped with a manual transmission, slicks, and headers, the car was able to easily break into the 13-seconds at the drag strip and the W-30 Package only added to the car’s potency. The W-30 Package added a fiberglass hood (option W25) with functional air scoops and low-restriction air cleaner, aluminum intake manifold, special camshaft, cylinder heads, distributor, and carburetor. With stricter government regulations, safety concerns, and an impending oil embargo, vehicles throughout the industry saw a decrease in power. This was true for the Oldsmobile 442, which saw its standard engine receive a lower compression ratio, decreasing the horsepower to 340. The W-30 unit produced 350.
