Follow the Leader is the sales introduction film prepared for dealers to
let them know all of sales advantages to be found in a 1937 Oldsmobile. In
1937, Oldsmobile was a pioneer in introducing a four-speed semi-automatic
transmission called the "Automatic Safety Transmission", although this
accessory was actually built by Buick, which would offer it in its own cars
in 1938. This transmission featured a conventional clutch pedal, which the
driver pressed before selecting either "low" or "high" range. In "low," the
car shifted between first and second gears. In "high," the car shifted
between first, third and fourth gears.

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.

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!
Oldsmobile 307 V8 Build Part 5
Taking out the pistons led me to discover that the bearing and crank shaft
are damage far far beyond any hope of repair.
One bearing was so bad that it ate itself away, as well as the crank shaft
to a measurable degree.
I've never seen something this bad, and can't believe the owner got this
far without thinking the clunks they are hearing where bad.
