The Commotion by Motion 455, a ’69 Motion Hurst/Olds, the only example of Motion speed shop and factory-built performance muscle cars existing today.

This solitary ’69 H/O 455 was purchased from Mack Markowitz Oldsmobile and then handed over to Motion Performance where it was christened “Commotion by Motion,” it was built for competitive Super Stock drag racing service. The ’69 H/O 455 was mini-tubbed, the stout 12-bolt rear given a set of steep drag gears and ladder-bar suspension.

The Oldsmobile was taken north to New England and campaigned at the Connecticut Dragway for no less than two years, dominating its Super Stock classes. Judging by its lacking cage, the Commotion never saw low 11-second times – well, legally at least.
