1968 Hurst/Olds

Hurst/Olds 1968A special edition model, the 1968 Hurst/Olds represented the best in performance that the Oldsmobile name had to offer. To understand what the 1968 Hurst/Olds was, you have to go back to the origins of the Oldsmobile 442. The Olds muscle car came out in 1964, initially as an option on the Cutlass and the F085. The number referred to the four-barrel carburetor, the four-speed manual transmission, and the two exhaust pipes. From 1968 to 1971, the 442 was a model of its own, and in 1972 it became an option again, through the early 1990s.
