Vehicle Details

The Hurst/Olds is a limited production car built by Oldsmobile and Hurst Performance in 10 select years from 1968 to 1988.

The 1975 Hurst/Olds is the 6th year for the H/O. There was a total production run of 2535 built. The Hurst/Olds was available as either a W25 with a 350 engine or a W30 with a 455 engine. There were 1342 W25’s and 1193 W30’s. The H/O’s were also

available in either white or black, both with gold striping. 1293 were white and 1242 were black. There are no

numbers as to how many W25’s were white or black and how many W30’s were white or black. The cars could be

ordered as a black car with white or black vinyl top or a white car with either a white or black vinyl top. The Hurst/Olds was selected as the car to introduce the public to the t-top, removable roof panels. This was the first GM production car to have

these panels. This is also the first year to offer interior colors besides black or white. Oldsmobile offered an option of

“Compaticolor”, and these colors were available on the H/O with white interior.


•Cylinder heads were cast with a KA- on the 455 cars (#8 on the 350 cars).

•The casting letter is located on the front of left cylinder head and rear of

right cylinder head.

• The intake manifold casting is 412753 (411990) and both are cast iron.

•Exhaust manifolds were LH -drivers side casting is X 412287 (411961) and

RH- passenger side Z 402294 (398704) for dual exhaust. Special chrome

tailpipe extensions were available as an option.

• The distributors used were HEI ignition stamped with 1112937

•All the cars had a Rochester Quadrajet 4 barrel carburetor. They were

stamped with 7045184 (7045183). The stamping is on the driver’s side of

the unit.

•The transmission used was a 400 (350) model. It has a tag located on the

right side of the unit. The tag is coded as an OD (OW-Calf. Cars) for the

455 cars (LC on the 350 cars). Both had a 75 indicating the year on the

tag. The tag also has the sequential number of the unit itself. On the left side of the transmission housing, the VIN is stamped into the case using the same information as the engine block.

•The interior of the Hurst/Olds was unique in 1975 in that for the first

time colors other than black or white were available. The bucket seats

were a swivel type with reversible cushions. The “Compaticolor” scheme

was on the reversible cushions, dash, console, carpet, and seatbelts. A

Hurst/Olds emblem was recessed into the rear quarter trim panel.

•A Hurst tachometer was available as an option on all H/O’s and was mounted on the console in front of the Dual-Gate shifter.

•The 1975 H/O’s all had 15” tires with gold rims

• The exterior of 1975 was a special design with t-tops. These unique

panels were removable and provided the open air feel of a no-longer-

available convertible. When they were out, they stored in their own case

in the trunk (not included with this car)

•The hood was the 442 hood with

louvres and the gold stripes are decals and were quite “sedate” as

compared to previous year H/O’s. A single Hurst/Olds emblem was

placed on the trunk lid and on each side of the quarter trim in the vinyl.
