1969 Oldsmobile 442

Up for auction is a TRUE Hurst/Olds!!! This is #296 on the Hurst registry! It has non #s matching But correct date coded 455 engine. It runs strong with a W-30 cam, roller rockers, headers and 2 1/2 inch exhaust. It has the original tranny and rear end with optional 3:91 gears. I did a frame-off restoration from 1995-1997. There is a small patch on the drivers side floor. Both quarters are patched behind the tires. Done before I purchased the car in 1990. The one gas tank brace was also replaced. The car has been in my family since 1973. The car had an engine fire in 1973 that is when my uncle purchased the car and replaced it. There for the engine is long gone.

This car is a lot of fun to drive and the attention it gets is awesome. I probably put 1000 miles on it in the last 4 or 5 yrs. Just don't have the time for it that it deserves. I had an appraisal done 2 yrs. ago for my insurance company. It was appraised for $64,900. On Hagerty Valuation the car is as follows:





Car is advertised locally and thank you for looking!!

"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, " src="http://musclecarranch.com/1969-hurst-oldsmobile-455/section-container-snarls-softly-and-carried-a-big-stick.jpg" vspace="5" hspace="5"> 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) -30.
