1964 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Convertible Reserved Parking Fridge Magnet
1964 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Convertible Aluminum Parking Fridge Magnet
At the end of 1963, Pontiac introduced the GTO package as a performance option for its Tempest model, and the package sold well from the very beginning. Oldsmobile was the first company to recognize the success of the GTO and quickly put together its own performance package before the model year was complete.
The 4-4-2 package gets its name from the fact that the car’s engine had a 4-barrel carb, the transmission was a 4-speed manual, and it had dual exhaust. The package took the largest engine Oldsmobile offered for mid-sized cars, a 330 CID V8 and added the Police Apprehender Pursuit Package that Oldsmobile used for its larger cars. This equipment included a dual-snorkel air cleaner and a premium quality rod as well as main bearings. These tweaks brought the engine from its normal 290 horsepower up to 310. In addition to the more powerful engine, the package also added a heavy-duty suspension that included front and rear anti-roll bars. The package also came with special “tiger paw” tires. The four-speed transmission was the Chevrolet built Muncie model. The package was available on any mid-sized Oldsmobiles that weren’t station wagons, which meant it could be added to the less expensive F-85 models as well as the higher end Cutlass. This also meant that there were four-door Oldsmobiles with the 4-4-2 package, producing rare four-door muscle cars. The price of the new 4-4-2 package depended on which base car it was added to. On the less expensive F-85s, the performance equipment added $285 to the base price. To the already more expensive (and better equipped) Cutlass models, the package added $136.
While performance was obviously the goal with the package that aimed to take advantage of American driver’s growing interest in fast production cars, the 4-4-2 package also was designed to balance that speed with great drivability. In fact, it is reported that testers at the time called cars equipped with the new package the best-handling midsized car produced by GM at the time.
