Is a cutlass s the same as a cutlass 442?

Yes, and no. What year? Generally speaking the bottom of the line A-body was the F-85 A Cutlass was a better F85 A Cutlass S was a sporty Cutlass; the Supreme was a cushy Cutlass The 442 was a sportier Cutlass S The W30 was a sportier 442 Many parts are shared, all the way from the F85 to the W30, but then again many very significant parts differ- engines, cylinder heads, transmission, etc. And, of course, the packages varied every year, so you would have to specify a model year to be more exact. In certain years, 442's only got a big block engine, and no Cutlass was available with one. In general though, no, if you are paying for a 442, it better not be a Cutlass or Cutlass S.

The Oldsmobile 442 means (400 cubic inches-after '65) (four barrel carb) and (dual exhaust) if your car does not have these it is not a true 442. The 350 that year had only 160hp to 180hp but the 442 should have had the 455 and 270hp to 300hp. Are you sure your car is a 442? It may be a cutlass with a 442 paint job.
