View our eBay StoreSign up for our Email Newsletter 1979 Oldsmobile 442 W30 Hurst Olds offered with a reserve This perfect example was purchased new by an Oldsmobile technical employee. who immediately had the car repainted to a far superior finish level than the factory was providing at the time. The car has passed thru the hands of only 3 owners from new. and has been treated like a cherished heirloom. never taken out in inclement weather. and used sparingly on Sunny Summer days only. The car has been shown at a wide variety of events and racked up a large number of trophies along the way. which accompany the car. The car runs perfectly with no issues or problems whatsoever. An extra set of correct gold wheels also accompany the car as well as a good amount of receipts and documentation. This is arguably the finest example of the 2. 99 produced. We have many more photographs of this car. please click on any image to be taken to our full-size image list! Following the success of Hurst components in Oldsmobile's 442 models. Oldsmobile. in collaboration with Hurst Performance of Warminster. Pennsylvania. produced special-edition performance versions of the 442 or Cutlass Supreme. the Hurst/Olds. It was produced from 1968 to 1975. After a 3 year hiatus. the H/O returned in '79 on GM's newly downsized Cutlass body. It used the L34. Oldsmobile's 350 Cu In V8 engine. A Hurst Dual Gate shifter was standard. The first H/O to be built entirely by Oldsmobile Division. it was also the first H/O that did not offer a 455 engine. but it was the only GM G-body to offer a 350 V8 in '79. It was also the first W-30 to come with the Olds 350 and not the Olds 455. White and black again were the color choices. but with a wider choice of interior trims than ever before. Gold paint covered the hood. most of the top. and the very rear of the trunk. The aluminum wheels were also painted gold. along with the grille. This H/O was built by Oldsmobile at the Lansing plant and didn't get sent off for additional work at Hurst Performance Products or Cars and Concepts. For this reason. there would be no possible loophole around the then current EPA regulations. In part and summary. those regulations stated that as long as an engine/transmission combination had been certified in any production model for that year. the same combination could be used in any other model that the factory desired. so long as less than 2. 00 were produced. If 2. 00 or more were built. the engine/transmission combination had to be certified specifically in that particular model. The "R" code Olds 350 engine in combination with the TH-350 transmission had already been certified in the 88 models for 1979. so legally that same combination could also be used in the Cutlass body without specific certification as long as less than 2. 00 were built. That's why 2. 99 1979 Hurst/Oldsmobile's were produced. Now. there were no 350/4 speed combinations already certified by Oldsmobile in 1979. so certification would have been necessary. Known as the W-30. it was produced for the following year in the 1980 Olds 442. The only major differences between '79-'80 were the headlights. and '79 had the dual gate Hurst shifter.
