1966 Oldsmobile Cutlass 4-4-2 Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines

“Oldsmobile”The 1966 4-4-2 shared a modest facelift with other Cutlasses. It came with a 400 ci V8 rated at 350 hp. Two new optional 400 ci engines offered even higher performance: the 360 hp, 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 360 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. Inside, a revised instrument panel featured two round pods for the speedometer and other instruments, replacing the horizontal sweep speedometer of 1964–65 models, but the rest of the basic dashboard designed was unchanged. Car Life tested a 4-4-2 with four-speed transmission and obtained a 0–60 time of 6.3 seconds and a quarter mile of 14.8 seconds at 97 mph. The 4-4-2 still constituted only about 10 percent of Cutlass sales.
