1 owner car! 34,473 actual miles. Original interior and paint. The
motor compartment and underside were detailed for show.
Only 1,097 Hursts built total in 1973. Each car was shipped to
Hurst's facility where they were given a padded vinyl top with
custom quarter windows and H/O stickers. Also gold stripes, a set
of rear facing louvers and a flexible hood ornament. The inside got
a dual gate shifter. This one has the optional digital tachometer
and it works. These cars had a low survival rate because unique
parts made it difficult to restore. This is a rare find.
EXTERIOR: No rust, no damage. All original metal. It still has 95%
of it's original Cameo white paint. It still shows really well.
Over all smooth and glossy with just some minor little flaws. The
decal stripes are original and the edges are a little nicked up. A
new set of stripes are included. In the video I said the sun roof
was added, it is actually original. The original says it was there
when he bought it new and I found an article talking about the
optional sunroofs. The chrome is bright on the bumpers and
headlight bezels. The stainless trim around all the windows is
straight and shiny. The glass is crystal clear. Original weather
strips are soft.
INTERIOR: A very rare feature is the Hurst digital tachometer and
it works! If you find one they rarely work. It is mounted to the
same console that is home to the Hurst dual gate shifter. Another
cool feature is the swivel bucket seats. The carpet is excellent.
The upholstery is really nice considering it's original, there are
tiny cracks right at at the seams. The door panels are practically
mint. The dash pad and the entire instrument panel is excellent.
All the bezels, vents, lenses look great. It has a factory Am-Fm
stereo. The sport wheel is not worn smooth like most of them. that
It has the factory gauge cluster. It was a non smoker- the
cigarette lighter and ash tray have not been used. The headliner is
excellent with some discoloring. All the seat belts are here
including the shoulder belts. The plastic trim is still real
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Number match 455 engine. It was hopped up with
a hotter cam, polished aluminum intake with an Edelbrock carb,
headers and a Mallory Ignition. The engine bay and the firewall is
pristine clean metal. Factory air conditioner, the compressor needs
to be replaced. It also features power steering and power brakes.
New alternator. It also has an auxiliary electric fan. The motor
compartment is detailed.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: I love to see factory spatter paint, typically
it's been sprayed over with a spray can. This one has it's original
gray and white paint in excellent condition. No rust, cuts or
splices. It has an original BFG spare on a matching SS III wheel.
The jack looks like new, it's mounted properly. It has the original
trunk mat, the weather strip is excellent.
UNDERSIDE: The Hursts come with rally suspension which included
sway bars, stiffer shocks and springs. It is detailed underneath
like a body off frame restoration. The front end looks like it was
all apart and rebuilt. The ball joints, bushings, springs, shocks
etc look new. The brakes are redone, disc in front, e-brake cables
are hooked up. Custom 3 inch exhaust with a crossover pipe,
polished stainless mufflers and turn down tips. Painted fuel tank,
new straps. Looking up at the motor it has a chrome oil pan and a
polished high torque starter. The vin number matching Turbo 400 has
a finned aluminum pan. The floors are super clean metal, all
painted semi gloss black. No signs of rust, cuts or patches.
This was used as a weekend show car, that's why it was kept in such
nice shape. This is an opportunity to buy a rare, very cool piece
of muscle car history!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure
your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do
a walk around video that explains the car's condition in
