    I inherited an intake manifold with carbs from my dad he had a cpl 66 442's. It appears to be an L69. All the numbers seem to be right but there is an AL on the casting and off all the ones I've seen online(not that many) none have had AL. Anyone know what's up with that?? Thanks.

    All the 442's I've seen have a single 4barrel. 3-2's were on 57- 371's to start and may have stopped in 58. I don't remember a 394" having 3-2's. 442's also were 400" to start and went to 455's. Good luck.

    So I'm finding. I feel like I should probably sell it someone that will use it and enjoy it. I'm more a 1st gen Blazer fan.

    The first 442s were 1964s with 330" engines. 1966 is the only year 442s had tri-power as an option.

    Wow, that's a rare piece! You know there's an Olds guy out there somewhere who's dying to have that.

    A kid I went to high school with had a tri power ram air 442. His dad owned the Olds dealership in town and he went down the option list and special ordered it on dad's dime.
    2 door post car . Ram air tri power ,4 speed ,4.33 posi . He was hard to handle on the street. It helped to sell a bunch of new 442's in the area.
