Hi I'm new to using Forums, I bought an 84 Hurst Olds w/ T-roofs. I bought it to bring it back to as close to original as possible with maybe a few modern upgrades. I have almost found all the parts needed for the exception of the lightning rods. They were removed. I do not want to put the Hurst markings back on it with out the shifter. Would anyone no of anyone that would have one to sell.

Welcome to the forum. . Post Some pics of your car when you can. I have a new set of lightning rods but you probably won’t like the price ($3k). You can get clapped out sets for less if you watch eBay closely $1,500

Shoot, I sold the whole NOS shooting match with cable, top plate, screws, shifter, bottom plate, brushes (repro rubber boot) for a paltry 1800. I shoulda kept those....

Thanks I will keep that in mind. Ill take some pics once I get working on it. trying to get all the parts before I disable it. Knowing it is possible to get them I will proceed with the Hurst build. Im also trying to locate a 307 engine. Right now it has a 1977 6.6l witch Im going to rebuild and sell to a trans am guy.
Thanks again and you will probably here from me.

I spy some rust up in that T-top channel and down at the bottom of the A-pillar...just be careful when you get into that area, it could be gnarly. Don't know if you ever had a T-top car before but that's a typical "problem" area on these cars. That and vinyl top cars. Usually the naked hard top cars fared the best. But nothing is absolute.

Not to hijack this one but we need information on the truck!!! 😆
its a 78 monte carlo frame that was built for the pro truck division in saskatoon sask. I just finished rebuilding it for the new race season, the track is a 1/3 mile paved oval.

its mostly surface rust, but still solid for now. Thanks I will use caution when I get into it. It also had some repairs already on the passenger side I need to clean up.
