Muscle Car Of The Week Video #11: 1969 Hurst / Olds Convertible Trophies: 0 Give this video a trophy

Back in 1969, Hurst built 3 1969 Olds Cutlass convertibles to showcase their shifters, and they brought the lovely Linda Vaughn along to add to the over-the-top presentation. One burned, one is accounted for, but the 3rd went missing. These Oldsmobiles are far beyond the regular 442, as they featured a 455 cube big block Olds under the hood, backed by a Muncie 4-Speed shifted by - of course - a Hurst shifter. The white and gold paint scheme was wild, but it's impact was not even close to the giant a Hurst shifter mounted on the trunk mounted platform modeled by Ms. Golden Shifter Linda Vaughn! Recently, this car was discovered as being one of the 3 authentic cars, was added to the Brothers Collection, and was treated to a spectacular restoration by Level 1 Restorations. When completed, it was unveiled to the public by Linda herself at the 2012 The Muscle Car & Corvette Nationals. This special presentation features an interview with William Wheeler, the man who drove this car every day back in '69 as the Vice President of Hurst Airheart Brakes. The iconic Olds is ready once again to wow the crowds at drag strips with Linda waving to the crowds from the platform and giant Hurst shifter!
