4610 Pet Lane
This 1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds W-30 is the big 455 V8 machine with a cool color combo, exclusive T-tops, and ton of vintage style. So it's the car you never saw coming, but after you dig into the details, you'll realize it's the one you've always wanted.
The Hurst/Olds has been the awesome muscle car treat that ranked even above the 442 for many years, and the 1975 car was one of the most unique ever. It was a single-year design that traded in the Colonnade profile for a more formal roofline with a half vinyl top. But the real story was the T-tops that were exclusive to this gen's year only. The recipe proved popular for its time. They sold 2,535 examples, and that was quite a bit for these expensive coupes back in 1975... but over 45 years later, you know it's exceptionally rare to find one today. Especially this one with the larger motor and the desirable black color combo. The paint was updated later in life where it has a fair gloss but nothing too fancy to make you afraid to cruise this open-top Olds. Plus, it has the special Hurst gold pinstripe kit that shows off the straightness of the sheetmetal and the special louver trim hood. Even the Super Sport III wheels were specially painted in gold. It makes for quite a sharp-looking classic.
When you have the roof open and the doors, it makes for a terrific way to showcase those cool swiveling front bucket seats. The white upholstery even has the correct reversible inserts in the front buckets. It's a largely stock and original style. There are a few well-placed upgrades to keep this a better cruiser, including an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette and provisions for R134a air conditioning (needs servicing to blow cold again.) You also have great factory features like power windows and a center console. As a true Hurst/Olds you have a driver-oriented machine. That's why there's the special Oldsmobile sports steering wheel on the tilt column, and the dash wraps around you. Plus, you have the hallmark Hurst dual gate shifter prominently in the center of the car.
The W30 designation has always been important to Oldsmobile, and this is no different. It means this one came optioned with the big 455 cubic-inch V8, and it's great to have that numbers matching mighty displacement still under the hood today! Horsepower ratings were down in this era, but with this much size, you have a torque monster that has plenty of low-end muscle. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a proper V8 tune from the dual exhaust. The TH400 three-speed transmission is ideal for smooth shifting when you want easy driving and stout construction when you want to enjoy the dual-gate shifter. Add in power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a rear sway bar, and this rare Olds is also a terrific all-around driver.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. Rarity, muscle, and awesome style all come together for a terrific price. Don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
