PPI's WELCOME OFFERS WELCOME! Evolve Motors and Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1984Hurst Olds Cutlass Calais! We purchased this Hurst Olds from a gentleman in North Dakota who had used the car as a summer driver, having always kept the car clean and garaged. The ‘84 Hurst Cutlass is a special car; it was introduced in 1983 as a commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the first Hurst/Olds collaboration. In 1983, the Hurst Olds was only offered in black, with silver rocker panels. For 1984, the color scheme was reversed, with silver being the main body color and black on the rocker panels. We prefer the colors on the ‘84s, but the cars really look sharp either way. When new, a fully-loaded ‘84 like this one would set buyers back $19,500. That’s $48,240 today! Exterior: This car presents very, very well. Please take a good look through the photos, as the car is documented in detail. The body is is phenomenal shape, there are absolutely no dents or scratches. An elcometer indicates that the car is in mostly original paint, with readings of 6.5-9.0 all around. WE do note some paint on the right fender and paint blending onto the door. The finish is very nice throughout, though there is a visible tape line on the forward portion of the passenger door. It looks like they repaired the passenger fender and when they went to color match the door they only cleare coated back to the Hurst decal so as not to replace it. We do have a set of door decals if they buyer would like to correct the blend line. Pinstripes are in excellent condition, with the only blemish being a touched-up scuff in the red portion at the lower driver rear corner. We also note thining clear coat on the hood, possibly a result of buffing. We left it alone because overall the car looks great. This is a factory-equipped T-top car, which we love. All glass is clear and free of nicks or wiper markings. Factory correct chrome wheels are in excellent shape as well, with no curb rash or oxidation. Panel gaps are all dead-on. Interior: Dark Maple interior contrasts beautifully with the Light Slate exterior. Seats are in great shape throughout, with no tears or scuffs. Dash has a partial crack in the center; the car will come with a Dark Maple Hurst branded dash cover resting on top. All faux wood is intact and crack free. Six way powered driver’s seat is comfortable and functional, heat blows hot, air conditioning blows though not cold (R12), Kenwood stereo is functional, as are the electric door locks and all gauges. This car has the famous Lightning Rod shifters, which are always a conversation starter. The car is an automatic, but has two additional shifters for manually putting the car in first and second gear, which traces back to the car’s drag-racing roots. The T-top is a great interior feature and makes the car a perfect summer driver; the glass top is easily removed by pulling two interior levers. Mechanical: In most respects, the ‘83 and ‘84 Hurst Olds were mechanically identical. They both were equipped with a 307cid 4BBL V-8, 3.73 gearing, and dual exhausts. However, for ‘84, the car received a stronger 8.5” rear end. This particular car has covered 68,736 over the course of its 33 year life. Under the hood, this car is very clean. There are very few signs of age; belts and hoses don’t show any dry cracking or wear, and there is no excess grime or evidence of age. On the road, the car feels fantastic. There are absolutely no tendencies of concern. It starts right up, tracks straight, pulls hard through the gears, handles very well (optioned with LSD), and the brakes reel it in nicely. While optioned with the “firm ride” suspension, the car eats up potholes and speedbumps without hesitation. Underbody: As evidenced in the photos, the underbody is quite nice. There is no rust of any sort. All casting numbers are clearly visible and components show very little wear. We note that the exhaust was replaced at some point probably due to age. All bushings, ends, and linkages all show very nicely. The car is as nice underneath as it is everywhere else. The car was kept in a dry garage while residing in North Dakota and it shows. Overall: This is a sharp-looking,well-sorted example of one of the Olds greats. With its low mileage, great condition, and the fact that it’s a one-year-only spec, this Olds is a great buy that you can enjoy while watching the value tick up and up.
