I searched the forum and couldn't find what I'm looking for. Is there a way to verify an actual 79 Hurst Olds from a Cutlass Calais?

Thanks in advance.

Hi NilesMike, Welcome to the forums. I don't know much about the "newer" Oldsmobile but hopefully another member will come by and help out. I'll post around.

All H/O have M in the VIN. 350 CID and Hurst dual gate shifter for 1979. Also white and gold or black and gold paint schemes.

I am thinking that they were all R codes for 79 and not M.

Actually the M stands for Lansing final assembly plant where all Hurst and W machines came. Any thing else is a clone, tribute and ETC. ETC
