A Whole Herd of Hursts
The 2010 Musclecar and Corvette show gave Chicagoans an unexpected treat:
almost all of Hurst's most iconic cars, in one place! Hurst/Olds dominated,
with a Pontiac Grand Prix, two Rambler Hurst/SC's and a couple of Mopars
thrown in. And I thought I saw a Buick Grand National, but a sharp-eyed
viewer identified it as an all-black Cutlass (which it was).
An added treat: Miss Hurst Golden Shifter Linda Vaughn, as beautiful as
ever, signing autographs and greeting fans!
Pick your favorite; there's got to be at least one.

Muscle Car Of The Week Video #69: 1969 Hurst / Olds
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - Back before 1970, GM had a mandate that
limited the engine cubic inch displacements in midsize "A" body cars like
the Chevelle, GTO, and Cutlass 442 to 400 cubic inches. However, George
Hurst and Doc Watson were able to create a special version of the Olds 442
that broke the mold, and allowed for an Olds 455 to be installed and sold
through Oldsmobile dealers. Called the Hurst / Olds, these cars came to
be in 1968, and by 1969, they were widely known for their outlandish
styling, fully-loaded option list, and excellent performance. This
example from the Brothers Collection is an unrestored survivor, a original
car that was driven often... the way Hurst would have wanted!
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.
