The naysayers will tell you that the American muscle car died after the 1972 model year. In part they're right as compression ratios dropped like your 401k has in recent months; the Feds mandated big ugly bumpers fore and aft; and gasoline prices shot to 50 cents a gallon almost overnight in November 1973 with the first Arab oil embargo.
However the Big Three kept pumping out cars with big engines and yes some cars weren't as handsome as pre-'73 designs but one of our favorite 1973 designs is the Oldsmobile Cutlass. Add the Hurst package to it and you have a very desirable muscle car one rarely seen even at car shows.
The Hurst/Olds turned many heads that year as Linda Vaughn rode up and down drag strips across the country in one with her other Hurstettes. Just 1097 Hurst/Olds models were built from Cutlass S models at the now-defunct Lansing factory.
From a performance standpoint the 1973 Hurst/Olds was no slouch with a 455-cu.in. V-8 with W30 innards. Hurst changed the camshaft and called it W45. There also was the W46 which was for cars without air conditioning. The W46 had a longer 246-duration cam bigger valves and a 3.23 rear axle instead of the W45's 3.08 cogs. All the cars had the Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 a legendary performer that had a 3000-rpm stall-speed torque converter and the Hurst Dual-Gate shifter. All the cars had power front disc brakes and the Oldsmobile Rally suspension which included front and rear anti-roll bars heavy-duty shocks and stiffer coil springs. Hurst Performance claimed 0-to-60 mph times of 6.5 seconds back in the day: not bad for a 4000-pound car.
The basic Cutlass S models were shipped to Hurst's Detroit facility known in those days as the "Northend" and were available in either black or white. There Hurst technicians added a black or white padded vinyl top and custom quarter windows much smaller than those in stock Cutlasses a Mylar "H/O" etching in each quarter window gold side hood and deck paint panels and color-coordinated striping. The hoods featured a non-functional set of rear-facing louvers. Also added were a flexible hood ornament interior and exterior identification and the aforementioned Hurst Dual-Gate shifter. The Hurst cars rode on Super Stock III wheels mounted with BFGoodrich GR60-14 tires; the 1973 models were the first to employ these radials.
Optional Hurst items included Super Air Shocks Hurst Loc/Lugs a console-mounted digital tachometer and a modular burglar alarm system that was wired into the horn and lights. Although photos of prototypes so equipped have surfaced throughout the years no sunroofs were installed on customers' cars; this was before the T-top rage which began with the 1975 Hurst Olds.
