I believe one of the actual 1969 Hurst/Olds convertibles was for sale several years ago for 3.5 million. My sources state that the two legitimate cars whereabouts are known today… not sure if this is one of those cars. It looks very suspect from the photos. RM

I know one of the cars for certain (great friend of mine w/ paperwork). The other car is supposed to be in Cali rotting away under a tree. That car is supposed to be the replacement of the one that was destroyed. My understanding is that it was seen not too long ago in the same shape it has been for a number of years. Many things I have seen about the car shown in the ad are not adding up. No pictures of the engine and other things are making me ask a lot of questions. On top of that, the real car as it sit was supposed to be asking 7 figures. I am smelling a tuna boat here!!!!

Actually, this IS the real deal. The VIN# of one of the two 1969 H/O ragtops is 344679M409421, and that matches this car's VIN. I have a pic of the original Hurst Protect-O-Plate for one of the Hurst convertibles.

The story of the $3 million dollar 69 H/O ragtop years ago is true, but since that car never sold (the price was ridiculous), it's meaningless. Heck, I can ask $12.5 million for a 1968 Chevelle SS396, but it won't sell.

This is still a noteworthy car, but unfortunately it hasn't sold at $800K. It's been advertised in Hemmings Motor News and other locations for several months now. No takers. And the last time it was advertised, there were about 20 more photos posted, including engine photos (I have them somewhere). It had the H/O air cleaner.

The market is just too soft right now, and based on the Oldsmobiles that went through the last few auctions, I think this 69 H/O ragtop may be sitting a while longer.

This 69 H/O convertible is not on the list of Vin numbers compiled by Kurt Karch. These are the only 1969 H/O Vin numbers that are legitimately documented & accepted ... nowhere are the last six digits containing 409421 shown. Thanx! RM

Yeah, I guess that list is the final word. That list has been referred to before, but serious Olds guys do not use it. It's incorrect in places, missing some VIN's, and a few people I've spoken to in the past year with vast H/O knowledge have said that there are some VIN's on there that are not even H/O's. It's an old, outdated site.

This car is for real. I have information on all 3 of the H/O ragtops; the two originals, the one that was destroyed, and the replacement.

Interesting… can you provide us your information on the three 1969 H/O converts? I would be interested in seeing it. From what I understand Alan Bender currently owns this car and has never offered it for sale before. A collector Don Hartman was the owner of the other 1969 H/O ragtop several years back. I will contact the broker now that the mystery has been solved on this particular car to find out the actual asking price. Not sure if the asking price of 800K is just speculation?

Thanks RM!
