1969 Oldsmobile Other Serial Number 1 Additional Info:

Serial number 1. Extensive documentation, frame-off restoration, loaded with A/C, power windows, AM/FM radio, and much more. Runs and drives superbly, very fast yet comfortable. An extremely impressive car!
Depending on who you ask, 906 or 914 Hurst/Olds (Oldses?) were built, with this car being serial number 1, the first one built. Even George Hurst’s personal car was serial number 3. VINs are not sequential, however—the guys at Demmer just went out in the parking lot and grabbed a car to keep the line moving. Following a complete restoration in the early 2000s, paint and bodywork are quite good, showing almost no signs of use or age beyond some very minor checking on the deck lid—so minor we can’t eve photograph it. The rest is exceptional with great panel fit, a fantastic gloss to the code 50 Cameo White paint, and the distinctive Firefrost Gold stripes are surrounded by black pinstripes, which were painted just like they were at the factory. The hood scoop and spoiler are original components, the chrome and stainless trim has been fully restored, and it even carries authentic T3 headlights up front and NOS exhaust tips out back. If it wasn’t so nasty, I’d almost say it’s pretty.
The only way you could get your Hurst/Olds was with code 930 black bucket seats, and most of the equipment inside is standard Oldsmobile Cutlass. The window sticker that accompanies this car also identifies factory A/C (only about 300 of the cars were equipped with A/C), power windows, the M34 3-spoke sport steering wheel, AM/FM radio with Bi-Phonic rear speaker, U21 Rocket Rally gauges with functional tick-tock-tach, and an unusual remote trunk release. Everything inside the car is new and still in fantastic condition with almost no signs of use. Everything works, too, including the A/C and radio, and since it’s an Oldsmobile, it’s a bit quieter inside than your garden-variety Chevelle. Some burled walnut appliques warm it up inside and a mini console features the famous Dual Gate shifter, which, interestingly enough, Mr. Gasket still warranties. The trunk is likewise correctly detailed with a reproduction mat, full-sized spare on an SSII wheel, and factory jack assembly.
The moment you key up that W-46 455 cubic inch V8 you know this car isn’t your father’s Oldsmobile. It was fully rebuilt and has about 2000 miles on the restoration today, so it’s ready to rock. The correct air cleaner assembly uses a flapper valve that Demmer borrowed from a Cobra Jet Mustang and feeds a 4-barrel carburetor on top of a unique cast iron intake that was Hurst/Olds only. The heads are proper “D” castings, although the exhaust manifolds are from a big block 442. Bright Rocket Red paint makes the engine stand out in the engine bay and it is highly detailed with correct hose clamps, decals, and other hardware. It starts easily, idles smoothly, and pulls the A-body around with genuine enthusiasm.
Underneath it’s sparkling clean and thanks to a lifetime in sunny Georgia, it wears original floors and quarters. The TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is correctly tagged as an OH-69, also unique the Hurst/Olds and cars with A/C had mandatory 3.23 gears on a Posi inside the 12-bolt rear end. Oddly enough, power steering and brakes were optional, but this car has them both, along with a reproduction dual exhaust system that has that distinctive Oldsmobile sound. The front end was rebuilt, lowering springs were installed for a killer stance, the gas tank is fresh, and it feels pretty darned awesome going down the road. It’s currently sitting on a set of period Cragar Super Sport wheels with staggered F60-15 front and G60-15 rear Goodyear Polyglas tires, but the original SSII wheels are included with the sale.
We have the original dealer invoice, a copy of the original window sticker, original loan documents, titles, and paperwork from both Demmer Engineering and Hurst Performance Research Corp. verifying this as serial number 1. Noted Hurst/Olds expert Kurt Karch has verified this as serial number 1 and it is listed in the 1969 Hurst/Olds registry. A full set of factory manuals are included as well as period promotional literature, photographs, specifications, press releases, and other Hurst-specific paperwork. The restoration is documented with a large pile of receipts, time sheets, and photographs showing the entire restoration start-to-finish. The list of spare parts include the aforementioned SSII wheels, original springs (it has been lowered a bit), a spare distributor, and a variety of service items.
This is one hell of a car. Performance, quality, comfort, and awesome documentation make it an A-list collectable, and not just for the Oldsmobile enthusiast. It runs superbly, it’s comfortable enough to drive every day, and offers performance that remains quite exciting even in today’s world of 700 horsepower Dodges. And no matter where you go, this sucker is going to make everything else look soft. Take a close look at the photos, then come take it for a drive. We guarantee you’ll fall in love like we did.
