In 1968 I purchased my first new car - a brand new
4-4-2 and kept it for several years before trading it in on a new Cutlass
Supreme (and I've regretted it ever since). During the the last year I've found
and purchased several newer cars over the internet so I decided to look for a
1968 4-4-2 that was similar to the one I traded those many years ago. During
one of my late night searches I found what I was looking for - a '68 4-4-2 that
was identical to the one I used to cruise around in during my youth - same
willow gold exterior with black vinyl top and immaculate ivy and dark gold
interior, a 400 cu in engine with turbo automatic tranny and 325 glorious
horses. I've since installed a factory AM-FM and 8 track player that works
great. The car was sold to me by the son of the original owner complete with
original bill of sale and meticulously detailed documentation of everything done
to the car since new. The car has just turned over 100,000 miles (actual) and
the engine still runs like new and is in the process of being detailed to the
nines. The original paint is still on the car but I plan to repaint and detail
the undercarriage this fall. I will update this site as the restoration
progresses. Meanwhile if you are a race fan you may want to visit my company's
