You know that the names Hurst and Oldsmobile go together like bacon and eggs. Hurst built cars for other manufactures but it was the Hurst Oldsmobiles from the 60s and 70s that most of us remember and lust over. Unfortunately, the conversions became fewer in numbers and less and less common as the years went on.
One Hurst enthusiast wanted one last Hurst Olds. One that would be totally different from the ones that preceded it. What developed was a one of one 1980 Hurst Olds. The car you see here was shipped by the factory to Bob Saks Oldsmobile in Farmington Hills, Michigan.
Mr. Saks knew the Hurst Old’s production was stopped so he sent this Oldsmobile Toronado to Cars & Concepts. At Cars and Concepts they louvered the hood, added Cadillac Eldorado rear quarter extensions, installed a custom top and treated the car to custom emblems that stated this car was the “HursToro”.
The drive train is front wheel drive Old’s 350 with automatic transmission. The engine has special Hurst valve covers and many extras under the hood that make it one of one.
The car is one of one and has been shown at Hurst meets and Oldsmobile Club meets as well as many other car shows across the state of Michigan as well as other states. It is a show winner many times over.
The owner of the “HursToro” is Larry Fink of Lincoln, Michigan. Larry has all the paperwork to prove the facts provided here. In addition he has a letter from the Great Dr. Watson himself that the car is a true Hurst one of one.
