from what I can remember (I was a kid) will say YES they did. Wasn't a goofy reverse as the last selection either (like a jet-a-way) but a hydramatic, I believe. My uncle barry, the lawyer had one-....wait might have been a cutlass...:(


Hi Bob, Will you ask your Uncle if it was a 442 or if it 's a Cutless? I was sure we'd purchased a 442 but now we are getting conflicting information stating Oldsmobile didn't make an automatic 442. As we are getting ready to sell the car with it's new paint job we don't want to deceive the new buyer.

If you're set to smoke those tires, you may want a special tranny that can take a bit of abuse anyways, so I'd shop for a real toughie to do my bidding-


I would say no. The numbers 442 stood for a 4 barrel carb, a 4 speed manual transmission and a 2 (dual) exhaust. -- My friends uncle ordered a Vista Cruiser wagon like that the year before the 442 came out.

Yes. I own a 1968 Olds 442 with automatic. 442 also meant 400(cubic inch) 4 barrel carb, dual exhaust.

Thanks Mark!

yes the T400 was an option on the 442. this kinda kills the 442 name, but thats how it is

Yes they did, I owned one. It had a350ci.eng red, with white top, black leather bucket seats and auto trans on console. Sure wish I still had that car.or the one I traded it for, a1970 w30 442, 455ci.with the Hurst duel shifter,duel high rise volley carbs, silver gray,with black stripes on trunk, and hood.
