This particular Hurst Olds is a low mileage (only 23,455 as of this writing) and is a two-owner example. This car was originally purchased directly from the factory line by an employee of Oldsmobile. He bought it and retired to Texas where it has spent most of its life. See picture of paperwork included. Original window sticker, Bill of sale, owner’s manual, books and literature, line paperwork, etc. and copy of title.
A model designed to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the original, 1968 model, the “new” Hurst/Olds was really a 15-year-later example of classic Sixties architecture: body-on-frame construction (GM’s venerable G-body), control-arm front suspension, and a V-8 engine driving a live rear axle. There was no space-age styling or monochromatic trim. The Cutlass-based Hurst/Olds was boxy and ringed with chrome.
Only 3,001 examples were built (201 sold in Canada), all of them black with a silver lower body and red dividing stripe. Special badges, door graphics, a rear spoiler, and styled steel wheels were part of the striking exterior package. All of the cars came off Olds’ assembly line in Lansing, MI, and then shipped about 45 miles away to secondary manufacturer Cars and Concepts, which changed each Cutlass into a Hurst model. Each carried the order code W-40.
Performance-wise, every Hurst/Olds packed a four-barrel-fed, 307-cube engine with 180 horsepower, a Hydra-Matic 200-4R overdrive transmission, and a 3.73 rear axle. Along with its 180 horses was a solid 245 lb-ft of torque. It was a combination good for 16-second quarter-miles and 0-60 sprints of about nine seconds. The performance may not have set the drag strip on fire, but the Hurst Lightning Rod shifter system gave the car a unique, signature feature that looked wild and worked quite well.
This car has the original and numbers matching engine, trans and rear. Has air conditioning (recently new compressor, hoses and receiver dryer converted to R134), Power steering, power brakes (disc front, drum rear), power windows, tilt steering wheel, delay wipers, gauges (even the clock works) remote mirrors, AM/FM stereo, power trunk lock and power seats. Car has had a recent alignment along with new tires. This vehicle sports the very rare gray interior that is in absolutely immaculate condition. This Hurst drives and performs like it was just taken off of the factory floor!
