While researching Hurst/Oldses for a story in Hemmings Muscle Machines recently, I came across the above photo of a prototype 1969 Hurst/Olds’s hoodscoop, which included an arrow and some lettering that would look very familiar to any AMC nut. Fortunately, at Musclepalooza XI this past weekend, we had a couple SC/Ramblers to compare:
So not exact, but close. Which, really, one would expect, considering Hurst had a hand in both the 1969 Hurst/Olds and the 1969 SC/Rambler. I’ve yet to come across any back story on the Hurst/Olds prototype, however, especially on why it didn’t make production with that lettering. If anybody knows those details, we’d love to hear them.
