Only Yellow 1977 442?

Hi guys and gals, I have a friend who has a 1977, 442. I have seen this car up close and it appears to be a real 442. He thinks and was told that it is the only '77 442 with a factory yellow paint scheme. I looked at the car inside and out, door jams, underneath, under hood etc and if somebody repainted this car they sure went to a load of trouble; had to have taken it appart! The vin is 3G37R7R146926. My questoin is to you who have these 442 model years and if this is truely the only yellow 442. The original owner told my friend that she saw a yellow one in a sales brochure and was told that Olds di not make yellow, so, she ordered it straight from Olds!
Thanks, Stacey

Even if the color is pretty rare, at least you can still get parts.

My 1915 Oldsmobile(s) (model 42). To the best of my knowledge, (and AACA, HCCA, and NAOC), there are 10 known in existence (plus the possibility of a couple probably hiding somewhere in a barn).

I have acquired 3 of these just to be able to put one together with all factory parts.

If anyone is in the Niagara Falls / Rochester NY area and wants to play - stop by Geneseo and we can put this together!

Joe, did you stage that picture or are you always that organized? Very cool project and one that is very challenging I bet!

Well, at the time of the photo, it was the first car to arrive in my 16 car garage, and it had just come in from California... so I was doing a parts inventory. Being neat and organized with this kind of space is easy. I should have built the barn bigger because a year later 16 more cars came to join it and I still have 10 more to bring over. With my two oldsmobiles that just arrived, and construction going on, it's not so easy or neat.

To check out some of the other cars, check out www.geocities.com/jjferrero to "Joe's Hobby" to "Joe Car Collection"

It's truely a mess!

I am going to try to "clean house" and downsize my collection. I'll remove non oldsmobile project vehicles and just do pre1960 oldsmobiles. (in case people are interested - make a reasonable offer and they just might be yours!)

I'll be adding more photos of the 1948 Oldsmobile restoration process as I scan the photos in (the two tone green one you saw) on the website at

www.geocities.com/oldsmobile1948 .

I will be also adding more photos of the two 1915 Oldsmobiles to

www.geocities.com/oldsmobile1915 .

You can during the restorations, I am not as neat as I would like to be.



Anyone out-there have restoration process shots to show off??

I bet it is the only one EVER painted that way. You should call Barret Jackson immediately. They can auction your car tomorrow and Jay Leno might buy it for $40 million.

Yeah check the paint codes.

1915, looking good. Car is in pretty good shape for being 93 years old

oldsmobile1915,
It’s hard enough to acquire 1 1915 Olds, how did you end up with 3 of them?
