The 442 originally meant four speed, four barrell, dual exhaust; but like anything the car changed so the name didn't really signify anything. After a couple years you could get an automatic. Then when they relegated the 442 to only an option on the Cutlass in '71 you could even get a 350 with a two barrel carb.
