The first Hurst/Olds in 1968 – This is mobility history, if you like it or not
The Hurst/Olds was first introduced in 1968. The body was shared with the regular Oldsmobile Cutlass and 442 but it had a unique paint scheme: Peruvian Silver and Back. It’s engine was a 390HP, 455 cubic-inch Rocket V8 and came as a W-45 (without A/C) or a W-46 (with A/C). It was similar to the 400HP engine in the Toronado and an available option for the full-sized Delta 88. The only difference between the W-45 and the W-46 were the camshaft and the cylinder head selection and it was mated to a code OW three-speed turbo Hydramatic 400 transmission with a console-mounted Hurst Dual-Gate shifter, permitting automatic or manually ratched shifting. The Hurst/Olds: GM’s only intermediate-sized car which offered an engine that was larger than 400 cubic inches, thanks to a little trick they used to avoid the corporate policy back then.
