Oldsmobile Hurst Olds (1983)


Oldsmobile Hurst Olds (1983)

Some 15 years after the first Hurst Olds, an anniversary collaboration model was debuted. A total of 3,000 were produced and each used a tuned 307ci (5.03-liter) small-block V8, though performance was a long way from the muscle cars available first time around. The cars were based on the mid-sized Cutlass, and though somewhat smaller than the first cars, retained the front-engined rear-drive format. Upgrades to the suspension included thicker anti-roll bars, stiffer springs and shocks, quicker ratio steering, shorter gearing and 7xl5-inch (178x381mm) wheels. The emphasis was more on handling than power; the small-block was tuned with Delco electronic ignition, a Rochester carb and low restriction exhaust. Power went from 140bhp (104kW) to 180bhp (134kW). Typically Hurst was the shifter; the triple Lightning Rods meant first, second, and third gears could be selected manually.
