The '69 Hurst/Olds followed on the footsteps of the 1968 Hurst/Olds. Basically the 1969 Hurst/Olds is a specially modified Oldsmobile 442, modified by Hurst Performance Research and marketed thru Oldsmobile dealers during 1969. Production figures vary between 2 figures, ccording to official Oldsmobile records 906 were produced. Per the book 'The Hurst Heritage', Dick Chrysler, hairman of Cars & Concepts/Hurst at the time says that there were actually 912 hardtops and two convertibles produced. 'The Hurst Heritage' mentions that Chrysler was working for Hurst in 1969 and well remembers the long hours that went into the '69 H/O conversions. Every night he painted 25 hood scoops and spoilers for the following days production. He says the six extra hardtops were prototypes, romotional and publicity cars. The Oldsmobile figure of 906 comes from the block of V.I.N. numbers allocated for the H/O production. All cars were painted Cameo White with Fire Frost Gold striping. The 1969 H/O's began arriving at dealers in April of 1969. From what I understand, here were 906 made available for sale to the general public. There were also 6 prototype or pre-production cars made and these were used by Hurst executives for company cars and for the use in promotional and magazine testing duties. These cars were eventually sold by Hurst and I know of at least one that exists today and it's VIN# is not in the official listing of Vin#'s from Demmer. General Specifications:
