Hello, this is my first post so hopefully it goes smooth. I recently bought an 83' Hurst Olds, everything seemed great up until now. I was doing some research on the vin and it doesn't have the 9 in the vin code, but when i run the vin it comes up as an 83' my first thought was i have a clone, however, everything on the car is stock 83' H/O. All the interior the TH200-4R trans, the 307 H/O engine, Hurst lightning rods, dark maple interior, badges, trim, everything. i even checked the tire sizes which are marked on the inside of the driver side door and they are the same as a 83' hurst should be. Also those tire sizes only came on the 83-84 hurst then again on the 85-87 442's the size is 215/65/15. One more thing is is has the AC shutoff switch above the peddle, this switch turns off the ac when the gas is fully pressed and is only present in hurst olds/442s . So at this point i am very confused. It has every aspect an 83' hurst should have except the vin doesnt have that 9. idk what to think at this point and any help would be greatly appreciated. could the vin have been misprinted?
