Will #1 240Zs Be Worth This Much Someday?

Recommended Posts

In the listing the owner goes on about the green color and how it was manufactured on St. Patrick's Day in 1970 and that it cost $5,442.00 with emphasis on the "442" part of the purchase price. He also mentions that "objectively" the car was worth aprroximately $350k, so the $201K didn't meet the reserve. He should take the car to Scottsdale next January and enter it into the B-J Auction....maybe someone there will pay what he's looking for.

Theres a guy making a s**tload of cash off the classic car market...

but if theres somewhere you can get that much for the 442 that would be the place.

I agree.

I'd be contacting Keith Jackson at B-J right away to make arrangements for the car to hit the auction block in January 07. That's where the heavy hitters w/ big bux will be.

What makes this car so rare is that fact that although it is a bonafide muscle car, it's an Oldsmobile. Olds, Buick and Cadillac made some really great cars back then, but they were at the top of the GM line. Your grandfathers and uncles drove them, not the young guys. So, the Olds 442 W-30 was still perceived as "your grandfather's car" even though grandpa would never have bought one. Remember their ad campaign of a few years back? "This is not your father's Olds"
