This is a rare and distinctive collectable from an era where we got very few. Oldsmobile brought us back into the muscle cars days with a taste of the performance we all love. The 1983 Hurst/Olds Cutlass moniker was resurrected in time for the partnership's 15th anniversary and celebrated with this low production run of V8 coupes. So it's great to find a survivor-grade example that's also so affordable.
The Hurst/Olds was never about being subtle, and this '83 continues the grand tradition with an awesome black-over-silver paint job. And it also includes blacked-out trim, and red stripes. Plus, the aggressive spoilers and hood scoop let you know this meant business. The transformed Cutlass looks fantastic in its war paint, and this one is complete. We won't pretend it's perfect, but this does show all the right signs of being original. That makes it quite impressive to last over 35 years. Production was limited to 3001 examples, so collectors snatched them up. They are a rare find today so compete right down to the 15th anniversary badging.
Inside, the Hurst/Olds got bucket seats and a proper console - something few other Oldsmobiles of the era can claim. The maroon cloth is highly original, and it strikes a nice balance between premium and aggressive. But the real party piece everyone will be looking at is the special three-lever Hurst Lightning shifter setup that gives full manual control of the automatic transmission underneath. It's this special structure that also makes the factory upgrade to a sporty round gauge package so helpful. After all, the factory tach will be useful in this Hurst/Olds. As a true premium coupe, it came loaded with power windows, power locks, cruise control, and tilt wheel. All of it looks original and complete right down to the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo. One upgrade that you won't see, but definitely feel, is the cold-blowing modern R134a air conditioning.
Oldsmobile utilized their rugged and torquey 307 cubic inch V8 for Hurst duty. Fortified with a four-barrel carburetor and rumbling dual exhaust, it provides the kind of old-school muscle that few others offered in the '80s. Just like the rest of the car's survivor-style, this is believed to be original, and it even comes with a hit of flash on the factory chrome air cleaner. You saw the triple-stalk Hurst shifter in the interior, and on the road, it allows you to get the most out of the motor. Plus, on days when you want to take it easy, just simply let the four-speed automatic w/overdrive shift itself. In fact, this one has other great features for both cruising and performance driving such as power steering, front disc brakes, BF Goodrich T/As on Super Stock wheels, and sway bars front & rear.
Complete with the original warranty card, this is a true collectable that remains unmolested all these decades later. Don't miss out, call today!
