Muscle Car Of The Week Video #11: 1969 Hurst / Olds Convertible
Back in 1969, Hurst built 3 1969 Olds Cutlass convertibles to showcase
their shifters, and they brought the lovely Linda Vaughn along to add to
the over-the-top presentation. One burned, one is accounted for, but the
3rd went missing. These Oldsmobiles are far beyond the regular 442, as they
featured a 455 cube big block Olds under the hood, backed by a 3 speed
shifted by - of course - a Hurst shifter. The white and gold paint scheme
was wild, but it's impact was not even close to the giant a Hurst shifter
mounted on the trunk mounted platform modeled by Ms. Golden Shifter Linda
Vaughn! Recently, this car was discovered as being one of the 3 authentic
cars, was added to the Brothers Collection, and was treated to a
spectacular restoration by Level 1 Restorations. When completed, it was
unveiled to the public by Linda herself at the 2012 The Muscle Car &
Corvette Nationals. This special presentation features an interview with
William Wheeler, the man who drove this car every day back in '69 as the
Vice President of Hurst Airheart Brakes. The iconic Olds is ready once
again to wow the crowds at drag strips with Linda waving to the crowds from
the platform and giant Hurst shifter!
Hurst Lightning Rods Triple Shifter Operation - 1984 Hurst/Olds
Just a quick take on the basic operation of a triple shifter. I got my
thoughts mixed up explaining the shifting sequence(s), but hopefully it
makes sense. At the time the car was produced "Hurst Lightning Rods"
shifter package was presented exclusively in the 83' & 84' Hurst/Olds;
however they can be retro fitted to other vehicles. I also did a rolling
start (30mph) to 85+, and then a 0-60.
