Lightning Rods: 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst/Olds

In 1968, the initial significant collaboration between Hurst and Oldsmobile kicked off, introducing a potent big block-powered iteration of the Oldsmobile Cutlass 442. The last Hurst/Olds produced in 1983-84, based on the Oldsmobile Cutlass platform, presented slightly diminished performance. However, it boasted the distinctive Lightning Rod floor-mounted shifter, notorious for perplexing passengers and hindering romantic encounters throughout the years. Equipped with a variant of the Oldsmobile 307 cubic inch (5.0 liter) V8, the Hurst/Olds generated 180 horsepower and 245 ft-lbs of torque. These versions showcased dual exhaust systems and were exclusively paired with automatic transmissions featuring the unconventional porcupine shifter.

From the seller:

Real W40 1983 Hurst Olds. This car is a nice driver, NOT a show car. It has chips, scratches and dings. Overall pretty solid car. Bottom of inside of doors starting to rust but obviously as seen not thru skin holes. She’s complete Hurst options car except for the gray 442 interior obviously that was changed out by former owner due to a interior fire and reason for title statues? I’ve driven car a few times and she moves out nice and gets thumbs up everywhere it’s seen. So here’s an affordable Hurst Olds for you if you can’t afford the $25k and up ones and your on a budget. Deposit is PayPal and balance is bank wire. Shipping is buyers responsibilty. And reasonable questions just ask. Thank you.
