About this restoration : As a specialty German auto shop, this was a very different project for us. Essam had a 2002 project in our shop when he bought this Olds 442 on EBay and asked us to pick it up and see what we could do with it. While the car was in nice cosmetic shape with excellent original paint and interior, the engine was in poor shape. It had been driven hard and put away wet. One of our shop techs builds Pontiac GTO’s as his week-end hobby fun and this car is not that much of a stretch. We rebuilt the engine, did a nice concours detail and shipped it to Dubai in the same container with his 2002. The car is now running flat out on the desert roads of Dubai.
