That's correct. The 442 first came out in 1964. The only available drivetrain that year was the 4bbl 330 and 4 speed trans. That's where the 4 bbl, 4 speed, dual exhaust came from. In 1965 the 330 was replaced with the 400 big block and an automatic was offered, thus the switch to 400 cu in, 4 bbl, dual exhaust. Of course by 1966 there was a 3 x 2 bbl induction option (4-6-2?) and later a 455 engine (4.5-4-2), so by then the name had no relation to the equipment. In 1972 the 442 became a suspension and appearance package only, so it was available with any Cutlass engine (including the single exhaust 350). By the late 1970s the 442 came with a V6 and 5 speed. I won't even get into the Quad 442...
