Ron's Garage

Ron acquired a 1969 Hurst/Olds in March 2019 from Bristle, VA.  It is an all original car with original paint. The options include an original 455 engine, OH transmission (unique to Hurst/Olds), 3:42 posi rear end, factory A/C, cruise control, rally pac, AM/FM radio, rear defrost, heavy duty Harrison radiator.

 

The car was parked in 1977 and still wears the 1977 license plate. The cars runs and drives, the brakes still work, and the exhaust is still good. I have not touched the car. It will be on display at the Hurst/Olds Nationals in Indianapolis on July 18-20, 2019.  The show will be at the Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel located at 11925 N Meridian St, Carmel, IN 46032.  Below are some pictures of the car and the building it was in the past 42 years. The car number is 234 of 906.

In June 2018 Ron finished a 10 year frame off restoration on this awesome 1970 4-4-2 ram-air 4-speed convertible. The car has all NOS sheet metal except for original ram-air hood. The car has bucket seats, 3:42 posi rear, W-27 cover, tilt, T-44 hood lock, rally pac, am-fm, heavy duty cooling and more.

 

On June 23, 2018 this car won best of show in it's first ever show with over 100 cars in attendance.

Ron's 1970 4-4-2 ram-air 4-speed Convertible

It was 1963, and at the age of 18, I ordered a 1964 Dodge Ram-Charger 426 cu. in. motor to go drag racing.  Fast forward 3 years, and after losing my driver's license 4 times, I decided to sell the Dodge and order a 1968 442 so that maybe I could keep a driver's license.  On October 3, 1967, I finally got the 442, but there was a problem.  After I sold the Dodge, I was in a bad motorcycle accident and could not drive my new 442 because I was in a full leg cast.  During that time, I drove a 1968 Toro that I borrowed from a friend of mine and had to wait over 2 weeks before I could finally drive my new car!

 

The 442 was my every day driver until 1970, and as the price of gas was getting very high, I decided to buy a Nova 6-cylinder to drive to and from work. The 442 was only driven on special occasions, and of course, when the weather was nice.  In 1989, I dug it out of the barn and brought in back to like-new condition.  At that time, I looked for a same year 442 4-speed convertible to restore, and with no such luck, I settled for a 1971 442 convertible. During that process, I bought several cars to get the parts and options for the car, because back then, there were not a lot of parts being reproduced for these cars.  After completing the car, I had a lot of parts that were too good to throw out, so I decided to sell off what I had.  One thing led to another, and well, the rest is history!
