Very rare and unique car!

As car people, we all know the history of the great oil embargo during the early 1970's. Add to that government regulations and the American muscle car as we loved came to its demise. Oldsmobile however strived to keep a piece of it alive and in 1978 introduced us to the “Aeroback” Cutlass 442. Unique in most aspects, what it lacked was a bigger power plant. Had General Motors put a 350 under the hood perhaps it would have performed like this one.


As you approach this example the first thing likely to jump at you is the stunning color combination. The blue and white together really make the iconic “442” stand out. Walking around the vehicle you'll likely notice the paint work is nice and crisp. The lenses are all appropriate and the clean glass allows you to gaze at the same color treatment as the exterior.


Open the solid doors and your invited to enjoy the custom interior. It's not over the top but perhaps as GM should have done it. Soft supple leather bucket seats cushion you as you twist the key and hear that 350 rev to life. All those horses come to you courtesy of the previous owner who also added 350 badging to both front fenders. Easy breathing comes from custom installed dual exhaust.


At the Motor Car Group, we're enthusiasts first. We want you to enjoy your new car from the minute it's delivered and the trailer door drops. Before a car leaves our shop, it's gone through comprehensively, both visually and mechanically. We do more than just kick the tires, though: We road test (if the weather permits us here in Cleveland!) and clean it inside and out.


We're proud of our inventory and do our best in describing each example as accurately as possible. As with all classic cars, it can be difficult to know the true miles and history. Further, what one person sees is a gem, another person might not. So before making an investment, we encourage you to hire the services of a private inspector for a third party opinion. After all, we want you to be happy with your car for years to come!


No matter where you'd like your car shipped to, let us make the arrangements. We've ship cars all over the world. Delivering your new ride in enclosed carrier is nothing new for us. We'd be honored to arrange all the logistics for you! Every car we sell, from Sunday drivers through the rarest exotics, is meant to be driven-get out there!


If you have any questions before, during or after the sale, do not hesitate to contact us. It's what we're here for! Call us at (440) 914-0000, write us at sales@motorcargroup.com or stop by and see the new shop at 6441 Davis Industrial Parkway, Solon OH 44139. We're 26 miles from Cleveland Hopkins Airport and we can pick you up when you come to inspect or purchase your car.


We welcome any prospective buyers, their buyer's agents or inspectors from Monday through Friday during business hours, as well as evenings and weekends by appointment. We're car people who love what we do, and you'll feel it from the first time you contact us. Give the R&H crew the opportunity to serve you: Our passion and attention to detail set us apart!
