The Patriots cornerback revealed the surprise on video ...
NFL starting cornerback Johnathan Jones revealed a video on Instagram of delivering a 1972 Oldsmobile 442 convertible to his father for the man's birthday. It turns out that an American classic car is his father's dream drive, but he's nowhere near alone. Seeing the joy on the man's face is really something, but we are sure that it was even more rewarding for his son.
Even a Hellcat crash did not stop the filming of a rap video. Check out the results here.
Unfortunately, Jones didn't provide all of the specs for the Oldsmobile 442 he gave his old man as a gift. We suspect it likely has the W30 option, which means the L77 455ci V8. In the video, you can hear the Olds rumbling loud enough, so it's a good guess, but it's exactly that.
The Oldsmobile 442 looks absolutely amazing, likely it has undergone a frame-off rotisserie restoration. Glossy paintwork and bright work, the sparkling white interior and other details look better than the original, so it's a real car.

What you won't see if you don't look under the car are the FE2 suspension upgrades for better handling. Among them are high performance springs, front and rear stabilizers, and lower rear wishbones in the box. We don't know if these were kept on this Olds 442, but hopefully they were.
In his Instagram post, Jones says his father was a role model in life and the Patriots player is who he is today because of the man who raised him. While not all fathers who risk it for their children are so richly rewarded in the automotive department, it's nice to see a grown son who definitely appreciates his father's sacrifices for him.
Many have craved the performance-driven Olds drop-top, but with prices now above what the average joe can afford, it takes someone with serious financial clout to get one in excellent condition.
