    WTB 60s 70s car

    '70 Cadillac De Ville convertible with original cold a/c. 62k miles. Not a perfect car but the price is reasonable. 12,500.

    Rare Silver/Black '72 Grand Prix Hurst SSJ Found...

    It starts, runs, drives and stops. Runs pretty good. Quiet exhaust . Auto Stick works good. A guy in Arizona is buying it now.

    Rare Silver/Black '72 Grand Prix Hurst SSJ Found...

    This is the PHS report I got last week and this morning the owner of PHS called me to discuss this car so there really is something to it.

    Rare Silver/Black '72 Grand Prix Hurst SSJ Found...

    Aren't they all !? It isn't that bad and most of the paint is virgin. There are a few places it has been previously repainted mostly the pass. side and the driver front fender . There is a little rust through but it is not all rotted out. Most of the accessories are working and the engine is spinning over good and trying to fire off. This kind of car you can't really gripe about the restoration process it will require .

    Yes. Someone should buy one of mine and restore it. Then I could restore the other one.

    This is another '72 SSJ I found in a Gettysburg,Pa junkyard a couple of years ago. Black and gold loaded.

    Here is a better shot of it going back in the barn.

    It is the Hurst Auto Stick installed at Hurst during the conversion on this car. It operates similar to the Jaguar "J" gate shifter.

    Nice. This part is interesting..... "Though Hurst stated that the available colors for '71-'72 were Starlight Black or Cameo White, George Hurst's personal SSJ was a silver '72, and we have seen a green '72 SSJ; the author has also photographed a Bluestone Gray ('71- color) '72 SSJ, and there have been rumors of other colors, such as maroon, over the years." Wouldn't it be something if this SSJ was Mr. Hurst's personal ride in '72.

    One source claims 52 were built. Another source cites 60 total built for '72. Most were white/gold or black/gold. a couple of green/gold ones were built. A blue one was found and that was documented to have a full vinyl top with the sunroof and no contrasting color. A silver one was documented with no contrasting color and a black landau top.
  13. Possibly the only one with this color combination ?? Revere Silver with black 2 tone and white vinyl stripes and a black half roof. Interesting interior that seems to have been put together by Hurst...Pewter bench interior but has black carpet, black bucket seats ,black seat belts and a black headliner and side panels . Maybe a PHS report will reveal .

    What was your best junk yard find?

    A couple of years ago I found a black / gold '72 Pontiac Hurst SSJ in a Pa. junkyard. Complete car with original running gear and of course I was able to buy it. Yes, it is rough but well worth saving .

    Sunshine Turret Tops in Buicks

    There is an "A" after the model number. Nothing special in the VIN number.
