1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds
It's a wheel-to-wheel rolling display of ultra-cool mid-'70s style that's sure to turn heads. This 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds is quite a looker and it's running strong. The sizable original big block under its special edition hood is still acquitting itself nicely and, considering there were so few of these special edition Oldsmobiles made, it's got bona fide collectability value. Olds already established a track record with Hurst several years before this '75 saw the light of day, as the manufacturer's previous offerings of Hurst components in their 442s had met with consistent success. Olds marked the midpoint of the decade by equipping this Cutlass with some distinctive styling cues, including special edition badging and gold body accents running the lengths of its sides, both of which are in very good condition. Additional aesthetic touches coming by way of this partnership include a custom hood ornament, as well as the stylish louvres gracing the long hood. There were only about 1200 Hurst Olds decked out in Cameo white ever made, and the color is well represented here, showing a nice, consistent pigmentation from front to back. Whereas previous editions had featured a semi-fastback rear roofline, the combination of the more formal shape on hand here with the color-matched T-Tops creates an effortlessly cool look while offering the benefit of open-air driving when you so choose. Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by a stellar interior that will take you back in time. The special edition swiveling white bucket seats feature red accents that tie in perfectly with the dash area and carpeting below and a pair of Hurst-badged floor mats in front are yet another reference to this Olds' distinctive status. Everything is looking nice and clean inside - the center console holding the Hurst dual gate shifter is in good shape and the door panels don't show much wear at all. The original steering wheel still sits on its tilting column, while just beyond it the dash area is another strong point, with clear functional gauges in its instrument cluster and a pair of woodgrain accents that appear to have been recently applied. Comfort features include air conditioning, as well as power windows and power door locks. The trunk area in back is as tidy as can be, with a full size spare and jack resting on its floor. In addition to its undeniable stylishness, this Hurst/Olds is a very solid driving classic. A sizable, numbers-matching 455 cubic inch V8 fills the engine compartment, wearing a properly badged black air cleaner over its blue block and it's in great form, starting promptly and pulling with plenty of vigor as it sends a nice, deep note out of its MagnaFlow exhaust. The big block carries a Holley 4-barrel carb on top and pairs with an also original 3-speed automatic TH400 transmission that's shifting with confidence-inspiring smoothness to provide a great driving experience. Featured power steering makes this Olds easy to navigate, while power brakes with discs up front bring its set of super sharp 15" Super Stock III wheels to prompt stops. Take a look below and you'll see an impressively clean undercarriage. Seldom seen on the road and undeniably stylish, this 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds is sure to fill its next owner's garage with vintage mojo. Call today!
