2/1993  issue of Petersen's Musclecar Restoration & Performance has
442 Production Figures.

The 442 name was revived in 1985 on the rear-wheel drive Oldsmobile
Cutlass Supreme. The name was now defined as referring to the car's
4-speed 200r4 automatic transmission, 4-barrel carburetor, and 2
exhausts. Its not true dual exhaust but This W42 model replaced the
1983 and 1984 Hurst/Olds model and used the same 5.0 L LG8 V8. The
shifter was mounted on the floor in a console between the front seats,
and the upgraded F41 suspension package was included. 3,000 were
produced in the first year, and all were sold quickly. 4,273 were
produced for 1986, and 4,208 were made in 1987.

This 442 was retired with the RWD Supreme in 1987.

The final use of the 442 name was on the Quad 442 front-wheel drive
1990 Cutlass Calais. This model used a 2.3 L LG0 Quad-4 4-cylinder
engine with 4 valves per cylinder and 2 camshafts. The engine was
tuned with higher output camshafts which produced more top end power
at the expense of idle quality. It used a single exhaust with dual
tailpipes and produced 180 hp with a 5-speed manual transmission. This
442 model lasted just two years.
