1973 Oldsmobile 4-4-2 Hurst Coupe Long Sleeve T-Shirt
The naysayers will tell you that the American muscle car died after the 1972 model year. In part, they're right, as compression ratios dropped, the Feds mandated big, ugly bumpers, and gasoline prices shot to 50 cents a gallon almost overnight in November 1973 with the first Arab oil embargo. One of the favorite 1973 designs was the Oldsmobile Cutlass Hurst package, a very desirable muscle car, one rarely seen even at car shows. The Hurst/Olds turned many heads that year, as Linda Vaughn rode up and down drag strips across the country in one with her other Hurstettes. Just 1,097 Hurst/Olds models were built from Cutlass S models at the now-defunct Lansing factory. From a performance standpoint, the 1973 Hurst/Olds was no slouch, with a 455-cu.in. V-8 with W30 innards. Hurst changed the camshaft and called it W45. There also was the W46, which was for cars without air conditioning. The W46 had a longer, 246-duration cam, bigger valves and a 3.23 rear axle, instead of the W45's 3.08 cogs. All the cars had the Turbo Hydra-Matic 400, a legendary performer that had a 3,000-rpm stall-speed torque converter and the Hurst Dual-Gate shifter. All the cars had power front disc brakes and the Oldsmobile Rally suspension, which included front and rear anti-roll bars, heavy-duty shocks and stiffer coil springs. Hurst Performance claimed 0-to-60 mph times of 6.5 seconds back in the day: not bad for a 4,000-pound car.
