Ray Montoya’s 1970 Olds 442

“I purchased this car in 1989. I never put a lot of money into it, it always ran great. When the decision came to restore we invested a lot to make this beauty come back to life. Thanks for taking the time to honor what car enthusiasts call their babies.”
– Ray Montoya

The car was purchased out of Watsonville, CA. I found the build sheet on top of the gas tank when we restored it. There was another sheet that was found under the seats that shows the paint color and trim requirements, which I have never seen before. The car was built to race and had no extra options except an 8 track player which still plays like a champ.
