I think they came with the F-41 suspension package, 2 tone paint scheme, lightning rod shifters, chrome rallye wheels, a high output 307 cid olds engine (which was still a dead player) a posi rear end. I couldn`t guess what it`s worth without looking at it. these are nice cars, I own a 86 Cutlass supreme, which will look like a 442 when I finish.

Gimme Gimme!
Rear
3.73:1

Transmission
200-4R 4 speed.

Engine
660CFM Quadrajet
Roller 307
7A heads, A5 intake (if original)
8.0:1
170HP @ 4000

Cutlass/442's can weight in between 3200-3700 pounds.

Depending on the type of 442 (paint sceme, all electric package, dual snorkle air cleaner, suspension, etc.) it can be worth as much as $10,000 or more.

8.5 posi 3.73 is a very desireable rear end. The 8.5s will take a serious beating... the 7.5s on the other hand.... I've seen those snap on the first good burnout.

Huge difference-

if it is in mint condition with t-tops and low miles, i would say from $4,000 for a low mint car, and top out at $10,000 for a top mint car. if it is a driver car with some flaws, i would give about $2500 with decent miles. i would say go for it. then pull engine (put to side for future worth) and drop a olds 350 or 403 right in. the olds 350/403 are physically the same size as the 307. will bolt right in no complications. paint it black and no will know the difference. you can even use most of your stuff from the 307 on the 350. can even hook up the emission stuff and run it off the computer for a mild olds 350. with the rear gearin and tranny, you will be set for one nice street machine.

8.5 Rear
3.73:1

Transmission
200-4R 4 speed od

Engine
750CFM Quadrajet (can be 800cfm easy)
Roller 307
7A heads, A5 intake (if original)
8.0:1
170HP @ 4000
255 Ft Lbs. @ 2400
0-60 in about 7.8
17 sec 1/4---we have pushed mid 15's with a good tune up on the stock 307

Cutlass/442's can weight in between 3200-3700 pounds. my cutlass supreme is in the 3200 area, had it measured about a year ago, can not remember the exact weight

You'll be able to smoke a 3.8, but without at the very least a head swap and intake swap that car falls flat on its face at about about 3000RPM. The 3.73 and extra torque might get you out in front faster though. And yes imports are easy prey

Keep it original, take out the motor and trans and "store them" That car has value!

If anything, find another junker roller 307 HO(vin 9)and swap out the heads and intake, if you find a vin y motor, swap out the camshaft as well. Then the motor wont fall on its face at high RPM.

How many miles are on the thing? The mint garaged cars with only a few miles on them usually sell for the original sale price if not more.

Imports are never a problem.
a good tune and tweek, will beat a stock mustang 4.6-5.0 from light to light. the ss camaros will be a little harder to get to .
I would not waist the time or money on a 307, you will not be able to hit mid 14s if you wanted to. it would be cheaper and about the same amount of work to just drop a olds 350 in there for more power and durability. if you just want a reliable ride just for point a-b, go 307. if you want a reliable power ride for point a-b go with another olds small block, hell id go bigB.

go for it--if its a good deal
