Hello Lee,
It depends on the condition of the car, what you want to do with it, and how much money you are willing to spend in order to enjoy the car.
I've had my 68 442 since 87. I'm restoring (going on 5 years) another 68 442 now. I'd be happy to give you contact info of Oldsmobile Vendors and Suppliers.
There are plenty out there, just depends on what you need and of course $.

sorry, removed the link. The guy is a rip off jerk who wants far more than the parts are worth. I would not recomend them to anyone....

I am new to this forum and I would like to understand if the link you removed is related to the vendor above or some place else. Not wanting to challange any decisions, only to clearly learn from others.

I am also looking for parts suppliers and information sources related to 1968 Cutlass / 442's.

I have a '68 442 and LOTS of parts. You can find me listed as a supplier under Restoration Parts at 442.com [Rocket Science]. I have older used parts, as opposed to say Ron Memmer's NOS parts. Get yourself the $5 parts number CD, it has WAY more than "parts numbers" in it. Contact me for how to get that.

I wonder who the "ripoff jerk" was? Sometimes folks think I ask "too much money" for my stuff. In fact, sometimes I literally ask folks to "send me too much money." I guess it's not THAT much in the Grand Scheme of Things, 'cause I drive a 1990 Rocky 4WD pickup to save these Olds parts from extinction, not a 2006 model.

You can ck my reputation on eBay as well- user *the*RocketScientist, thousands of satisified buyers, and the occasional 1% pinhead that pays by forbidden personal ck and wonders why his parts are not sh'd yet then leaves negative feedback, like that'll help.

Welcome to Oldsmobile, welcome to the 1968 club, and WATCH YER HEAD on that hood- you '68 owners know what I mean there. Chris 517-449-0432. RocketScience442@hotmail.com

no, has nothing to do with Fusick. They are reputable. The site I referenced does not show on my post as I removed it...

not to worry, you are not the source I referred to. Let's put it this way, I was referred to Ron since the part we were looking for was quoted at 3 times what it could be purchased for. Worse is the guy actually believed there was nothing wrong with ripping people off. In turn he loses customers. I tried to locate your site though...www.RestorationParts@442.com? Is this correct. I would like to check out what you have available.
thanks

I've been to his site. I accessed it through a link at 442.com. I don't remember what all he has but I'm going back to check it out!
