1968 Oldsmobile 442 Convertible for sale from my private collection: Vin 344678M263543 – decodes as 3 = GM Division, 44 = model 442, 67 = body type Convertible, M = Lansing Built, 263543 = production sequence Numbers matching 400 CID engine (same Vin # sequence stamped under #1 spark plug visible with camera phone pic) matted to TH (Turbo Hydra-Matic) 400 Automatic TransmissionBody Data Plate on Cowl shows 02B which is the build date of “February, second week of the month, 1968”, which is interesting because I have an original Title in the original owner’s name (not a copy) that shows the Title Issue Date of “03/00/68” – just two weeks after the build date (02B). The Data Plate also states correct code 68-33667 (1968 442 convertible), and Trim codes:
Also stamped on the cover of the original envelope is the Vin# and ” 945-C1″ (note “945” is the Trim code, Garnet Red, and “C1” is the paint code, Provincial White – also listed on the data original Body By Fisher Data plate riveted to the cowl/firewall. The manila folder has a few other Numbers/Letters stamped on it, but I am not sure what these refer to: “SC 2 and 03000” are typed under the Vin #.
Also included is the convertible boot cover in Garnet Red (can send photo upon request)Trunk: super clean, showing no rust holes or rot, just a little bit of discoloration in one small area under trunk mat (most likely from moisture under mat). Looks like the original Provincial White paint under trunk deck with what appears to be the original sticker still in place.
Good news: I will include the new carpeting and padding for free to the buyer so he or she can install it (and hopefully in the process will find the BUILD SHEET under the old carpet..
