The relationship between Hurst Performance Products and Oldsmobile® goes back to 1968, when the first Hurst Oldsmobile® Cutlass™ was introduced. The fifth, and last, generation was offered in 1983 and 84. It was built on the rear-wheel drive G-Body of the Cutlass. In 1983, only 3,001 cars were produced and were available only in black with silver rocker panels. In ’84, the colors were reversed, but otherwise the cars were identical.
2 months ago when we published the upcoming models from Revell for the Summer, we were very glad to see an interesting subject that most definitely caught our attention. I had the chance to build the model kit and here it is. This is the new 1/25 ’83 Hurst Oldsmobile from Revell. As er the kit highlights above it comprised of 94 parts and you will use them all but 1. On the chrome parts sprue you will end up with one lone tiny part and that’s the famous Buick Regal ornament hood.
Assembly of this model kit is very easy. From step 1 to 3 you’ll be putting together el motor (the engine). By step 15 you car is already decaled up. One can build this car in any color you wish. But to be a Hurst the car must be painted as seen on the pictures below. Black on top and silver on the bottom with the stripe lines marking the division of both colors. As with the story of this car, the subsequent model/year, the colors were inverted with Silver on top and Black on the bottom.
