Rare Cutlass: 1975 Hurst/Olds W25

Out of all the different models of the Oldsmobile Cutlass, I prefer the 1975 model. It just looks so refined. It combines power and beauty in a grand touring package. This example is located in Milton, New York and is for sale here on eBay at no reserve. With 3 days remaining in the auction, the car is bid to $3,329. This car is going to need work but is driveable in its current condition.

This white on white Hurst/Olds has rust. The car looks pretty good from a top view but, when you get down on the ground, the lower quarters are rusted through. The floorboard will need replacement also as it is rotted through. While the paint looks shiny, up close the paint is dry and cracked. The seller discloses the body has dents and the t-tops are cracked too. Another disturbing disclosure is the stress cracks in the t-top roof.

The interior is unrestored and is functional but needs some work to bring it back to what Dr. Olds had in mind when this car left the factory. You can see some duct tape repair to the driver seat. One of the cool things about the Hurst/Olds is the swivel bucket seats and, of course, the transmission is shifted using a Hurst dual gate shifter. This car appears to also have a LED speed indicator mounted on the steering column. I know that buyers could order a console-mounted electronic tach but the LED speedometer looks to be a JC Whitney add on. Maybe some of you Hurst/Olds enthusiasts can enlighten us.

There were two engine options for 1975. The W-25 designated cars came with a 350 cubic inch V8 engine and the W-30 cars were built with 455 cubic inch V8 engine. This car is said to come with the original W-25 engine and transmission. In terms of the exterior color, this car is Code 11 Cameo White. The car was also available in black. Of the total production of Hurst/Olds built in 1975,  1,293 cars were built in white and the other 1,242 Hurst/Olds were painted black.

    Nothing that a rust free donor car frame, and some metal patch work could possibly fix. Just goes to show that looks can be deceiving! GLWTA!! :-)

      Damn straight.. looks are deceiving. It’s looks good from 25 ft. I would pass on this one. Way too much work to be done. But love that speedo!😂

    I owned a 74 and loved it. The rust is unbelievable here, and this car has never seen the inside of a garage. That’s a shame.

    I had a silver body/maroon vinyl top ’75 Cutlass Salon that was my first car in ’80. It was totaled in ’84 so I bought a black ’76 Cutlass Salon w/ t-tops. Loved them both

    My girlfriend in high school had a ’75 Cutlass – a real looker with beautiful lines, leather and plenty of low-end power. The car wasn’t bad either. Anyway, her father traded it for a………… ’78 Mercury Zephyr – an ugly dog!

    That is the hurst/olds digital tach that’s mounted on the steering column. They were normally mounted on the center console and were made by Harmon electronics.

    Those rims are my favorite of all rims. I just love that style, with the stainless trim ring, then the 5 stainless pieces, and then the center cap. When these rims are new and shiny plus you can paint them any color to match your car it just takes any car to a whole new level.
