Here is a true Hurst/Olds #296 On the Hurst registrey.
It has been in my family since 1973. I have owned it since 1990. My uncle pulled the engine out in 1973 and dose
not have it. It now has a 1969 455 from a Tornado in it.
It has "C" heads . The car runs and sounds awesome. Really turns heads. This car is by far the most fun car I have
It has Optinal 3.91 Gears.
It had a frame off restoration in 1997.
Hagerty shows the value at fair $32, 800 good $67, 600 Excellent $108, 000 Concours $141, 000.
I have an appraisal from 2 yrs. ago for $65, 000.
Car is a trophy winner!
The car has no dents or dings but is not perfect but I am not looking for big money either.
How Rare is this car? According to the Oldsmobile's company records, there were 906 Hurst/Olds produced in 1969.
In 1969, with less than 1, 000 total vehicles being produced, the 1969 Hurst Oldsmobile with its amazing brand new
look that had a gorgeous Firefrost Gold and Cameo White color combination; its amazing hood scoops that could get
anyone's attention and was the car that was dubbed the "Hairiest Oldsmobile" by Motor Trend Magazine was a "RARE
Beast" even back in 1969 when it was built!
"Snarls softly and carries a BIG stick" ... that is the experience the 455CI Hurst Olds promised in 1969. Jack
"Doc" Watson made sure that the signature "Hurst Gold" on Cameo White, dual English racing mirrors, hand applied
black pin striping, die cast Hurst/Olds emblems, and gold trimmed interior was more than just a pretty appearance
package. The dual-snorkel fresh air system forced air own the gullet of the 455. W-30 heads, cam, and distributor
made sure the mixture of fuel and forced air made an explosive 380 hp and 500 pound-feet of torque. A performance
modified Turbo Hyra-matic is shifted by a dual-gate Hurst shifter. Heavy duty suspension, power front disc brakes,
and even the giant decklid spoiler rounded out the performance package. The rear air foil holds the backend to the
road, creating 15lbs of down force at 60 mph, and 64 pounds at 120 mph. In the end "Doc" Watson got his way. The
popularity of the Hurst/Olds 455 ended the GM imposed 400 CI displacement limit ended in 1970, paving the way for
the W (for Watson)
