More about the Hurst Olds in 1979: However, n 1979, uring the second gas crisis, hen prices shot up to about $1.25 a gallon from around 70 cents, ldsmobile brought back the famed Hurst/Olds name in the new Cutlass body and based it on the Calais model. In the January 1980 issue of Super Stock & Drag Illustrated, n article by Mike Rowell almost apologized for featuring a 1979 car in a 1980 magazine, ut he had good reason. In 1979, he G-body GM cars all had small, nemic engines, anging from a V-6, 260 V-8, r the 305 Chevrolet V-8. But the Hurst/Olds used the 350 engine from the larger cars to add performance. In fact, he 1979 Hurst/Olds was the only A-body GM car to use this engine. Rowell went onto say that the Hurst/Olds was the kind of car that some racers like as a daily driver.

The Hurst/Olds fills these specs. While the '79 Hurst/Olds was the first of its breed not to offer an engine of more than 400 cubic inches, t was a performance car, hen, n 1979, ven the top Corvette engine wheezed out 225hp. That year, he 170hp Hurst/Olds held its own against similar performance cars of the day like the Turbo Buick and R/T Dodges. The 350 Olds that year featured a 700cfm Rochester Quadrajet and offered decent response and fuel mileage. The Hurst/Olds also featured a dual exhaust system consisting of a single pipe leading from the Y-pipe through a single-inlet catalytic converter and into a dual-outlet muffler with twin tailpipes. Nevertheless, lds engineers insisted that the system offered reduced back pressure, ven if it had a single catalytic converter. The engine was hooked to a Turbo Hydra-Matic 350 transmission (because the stronger Turbo 400 was discontinued) that was stirred by the already legendary Hurst Dual Gate shifter, hich was last available on the '79 cars and came with a lifetime warranty. The rear axle had 2.73 gears (2.56 in California) and the Hurst/Olds rode on 14 x 6-inch special
