General Motors had a 400 cubic-inch V8 size limit that they were using it for any of their mid-size family sedans up until 1970. All the GM divisions had larger engines than 400 cu-in, but they were installing those engines in the full-size cars.
However, in 1969, George Hurst working together with Joe Mondello, known as “Dr. Oldsmobile, have created this 1969 Hurst Oldsmobile Limited Edition Cutlass. Which featured an engine bigger than the 400 cu-in limit, which also it is a pretty unique car, both appearance and performance.
However, this car was more than a high performance Oldsmobile Cutlass Holiday Coupe, because it was well equipped and comfortable to drive. Inside had a cruise control, AC unit, AM radio, adjustable steering wheel and luxurious black vinyl interior.
On the hood, there is an aggressive looking fiberglass hood-scoop and it is not only a great billboard for the H/O 455 engine, it is also functional with allowing cold air getting to the machine under the hood. This 455 cubic-inch, 7.4-liter short-block V8 engine with four-barrel quadrajet carburetor on top is producing 380 horsepower and 500 ft-lb of torque.
