oh my, the cars that have spent time on the used car lots after their fame was over... like George Hurst's personal 1969 Hurst Olds prototype #1

Marc Jungerman, of Independence, bought this Olds recently as he figured it would be a good investment.

The car’s Protect-O-Plate warranty card listed Hurst Performance Research as the car’s first owner, so that also piqued his interest, then he found that this car’s VIN indicated it was built in January, not the typical March, or later, of the factory-produced Hurst/Olds

Gary Cox, of Janesville, Wis., was one of the car’s earliest owners. He bought the car late in 1972 when he worked for Swede Clark’s Courtesy Oldsmobile in Janesville. Cox said the car had white pearl paint, gold wheels, Hurst shock absorbers, Hooker headers and line locks.

Doc Watson confirmed that the car was a Hurst exhibition model used to promote Hurst products, and it was raced on drag strips.

At one time it had an unusual rear spoiler with tusk-like extensions mounted to the rear fenders and a gold stripe painted on the rear glass.
