If you're looking for rare, investment grade muscle with a fresh top-notch restoration that will bring home big trophies and an even bigger return, this 1968 Hurst/Olds is the car you've been waiting for.
Originally delivered to Mitchell Oldsmobile in Huntington New York, this 1968 Hurst/Olds recently benefitted from a top-notch, professional nut and bolt rotisserie restoration that was painstakingly executed to the highest level. During that restoration the cars clean and solid body panels were completely disassembled, thoroughly prepped and covered in a super slick Peruvian Silver basecoat/clearcoat finish that includes correct black accent stripes and professionally painted white pin stripes. Today, the cars straight and spectacular looking body exhibits no major defects and its narrow panel gaps provide the kind of excellent fit and functionality that would've been nonexistent back in 1968.
Lift the hood on this rare 1968 Oldsmobile and you'll find its original W45 Rocket 455 which carries a correct 1968 Oldsmobile big block 396021F casting number and a correct 38M407836 partial VIN. The new for 1968 Rocket 455 used an increased stroke to create 390 horsepower and one of the meanest sounds to ever come out of an American muscle car. Stomp the throttle and a correct 7028255 W31 4-barrel carburetor mixes fuel from new stainless fuel lines with air from a new black and chrome dual snorkel air cleaner and shoves it into a correct cast iron 4V intake manifold. At the sides of that intake, correct Oldsmobile "D" heads sit above correct cast iron Exhaust manifolds which make quick work of spent gases; and behind the carburetor, a correct points distributor sends fire through correct black Packard Suppression wires. At the front of the engine, reproduction GM hoses circulate water through a correct radiator while new V-belts spin a new alternator, a new power steering pump and a correct fan.
Underneath the car, original rust free floorpans display an even coat of GM satin black paint that looks perfect above a straight frame and a spotless, correctly marked gray driveline. Behind the big block 455, the car's original code O turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed transmission sends power to correct pavement melting 3.91 gears, and Exhaust flows through a mandrel bent true dual system into factory replacement mufflers. At the front of the car, factory correct double A-arms hold fresh coils and new shocks above a completely rebuilt and chalk marked front suspension, and at the back of the car, a fully restored, marked and tagged triangulated four link suspension hangs fresh coil springs and new spiral shocks next to a correct T3 12 bolt rear end. Braking is provided by standard equipment Hurst/Olds power front disc and rear drum brakes which receive fluid from new stainless lines and a correct Delco brake Booster. At the corners of the car, black 14 inch Oldsmobile stamped style two (SSII) wheels wear gray and silver paint, Oldsmobile rocket center caps and G70-14 Goodyear Polyglas white wall tires.
Inside the car, you'll find a nicely restored GM code 940 black vinyl interior that is both comfortable and appealing. New vinyl seats sit on new carpet that is protected by new rubber floor mats and great looking new door panels are decorated with pristine stainless trim pieces. Above the seats a new headliner is stretched tight across the roof and between the seats, a factory correct short console features authentic Hurst/Olds exclusive Walnut trim around a correct Hurst dual-gate ratchet shifter that permits automatic or manual shifting. In front of the driver, a new dash pad houses a Hurst/Olds exclusive tic-toc tachometer above Hurst/Olds exclusive Walnut trim and a correct Oldsmobile AM radio. In front of the passenger, a correct Hurst/Olds logo is attached to the cars locking glove box, and in front of the driver, an authentic wood trimmed three spoke satin finished steering wheel features a red Oldsmobile rocket logo. Behind the cockpit, a fully restored trunk is correctly equipped with fresh spatter paint, a new houndstooth mat, a correct spare tire and correct trunk lid decals.
This phenomenal 1968 Hurst/Olds is a super rare car that is the perfect investment for an emphatic Oldsmobile collector or any serious muscle car fan who wants something a little different.
1972 Hurst Olds Official Pace Car
The 1972 Hurst/Olds was actually developed by Hurst Performance, and not Oldsmobile. Due to a tragic accident involving the 1971 Indy Pace car, a Dodge Challenger, the major auto manufacturers were reluctant to provide the pace car for the 1972 Indy race. Hurst Performance stepped up and volunteered to sponsor the 1972 Pace car. Oldsmobile provided the Cutlass Supreme coupe and convertible, and the rest is history. It was the only time an Indy Pace car was sponsored by a manufacturer other than an automobile manufacturer, and first time to include a major supplier's name in the title. The 1972 edition of the Hurst/Olds had some of the lowest production numbers of any produced with a total of 629 made; 130 Convertibles, 220 hardtop with sunroof, and 279 hardtop cars. The only color available was Cameo White with reflective 3M gold stripes that were stickers, not paint. All of the cars had the W-25 Ram Air Hood and gold SS III Rally Wheels with a chrome bolt-on center cap and chrome beauty ring. The tires were Goodyear Polysteel Radials. The standard Hurst/Olds engine was a 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 rated at 270 net horsepower. Optional at extra cost was the W-30 option with the L77 455, a blueprinted engine rated at 300 net horsepower. Both engines were mated to a turbo Hydra-matic 400 transmission with console-mounted Hurst Dual-Gate shifter. All of the 1972 Hurst/Olds had the black Strato bucket interior with a center console. Special Hurst/Olds Pace Car badging adourned the glove box door and all 1972 Hurst/Olds' were identified with a W-45 Code on the cowl tag.

1983 Hurst Olds 15th Anniversary For Sale Alsip, IL Video 2 of 3
'83 Hurst/Olds #429 of 3001 built. Built on 12-20-1982. Purchased from original owner August 8, 2003 in Tifton, GA who purchased from Prince Chevrolet-Oldsmobile, Inc. PO Box 128, HWY. 82 W. in Tifton, GA 31792 on January 31, 1983. I have copy of GA title, dealers invoice window sticker, retail installment sale contract, build sheet, Oldsmobile pre-delivery inspection check sheet, Oldsmobile owners manual, Hurst/Olds option manual, buyer protection manual, radio manual, and tire manuals. Also loan documentation copy stating date of birth of original owner 12-4-1936. A very well documented vehicle.
A very solid southern car which has all its original paint, rare sand drift (gray) interior, and W40 Hurst package which includes the infamous Hurst Lightning Rod shifter. This is the 15th Anniversary Edition of the Hurst/Olds collection. A true beauty, an eye catcher, and definitely a collectible.
Car has been autographed by Jack 'Doc' Watson who was one of desiginers and innovators of the Hurst/Olds project. Also autographed by Linda Vaughn "Miss Hurst". Both autograph's are documented by photos with each. Car has paraded the Indianapolis Brickyard race track on two occasions - 2004 & 2009. Both documented by photos of the car passing the brick finish line. This is a great car which would be an excellent authentic collectible item.
PONTIAC - The Glory Years! Part 1 of 5
(1956-93). Some great basic Pontiac history, along with the CARS and PEOPLE (Bunkie Knudsen, John Delorean, Jim Wangers, Pete Estes, etc) who made Pontiac great in those years. In 1956 Bunkie Knudsen was hired as Pontiac's General Manager. He was told by GM "Turn Pontiac around in 5 years or the division is gone". Within about a year he quickly assembled a great team. Knudsen was fortunate enough to pick up engineer John Delorean from Packard when that company closed, Delorean later became the father of the GTO and MANY Pontiac Innovations. Knudsen was also fortunate enough to lure a brilliant "Olds Rocket V8" engineer away from Oldsmobile---Pete Estes who helped the Pontiac V8 breath as well as it could.
Lance Lambert visits the car collection of Dan Jubie and takes a closer look at his 1956 Oldsmobile. This is a segment from an episode of The Vintage Vehicle Show.

1969 real 442, very highly documnted, Solid, restored as a perfect HURST OLDS 455, FOR SALE
Real 69 442, very highly documented, every piece of paper that ever came with the car or had anything to do with the car. Restored as a Hurst Olds, with all the correct equipment including the Hurst Olds only wheels and Hurst Olds lockout shifter, the H/O badging, the dual snorkel hood scoop, Functional Ram Air, the Hurst Gold striping, and the Hurst Gold on seat head rests...etc... Date coded 455 Olds engine runs perfect, with lots of power. The car starts right up and runs straight down the road. Everything works on the car. Began with a very solid western 442, no rust. Clean floors, trunk, and body. Engine bay, interior, trunk, body, and undercarriage all look as they would from the factory. Mike 248-249-0627 $ 34.5K
