decode vin on 84 Olds...is it a true Hurst car?

Recommended Posts

hi

I have 84 olds Calais 2 door coupe.  Could someone help me or direct me to best place to get vin decode?  Also I want to know if it can be verified by the vin # whether the car is a true hurst car?  If vin does not identify a factory hurst car, how does one verify it?

thankyou for your time and help, much appreciated.

Found this by doing nothing more difficult than clicking on the very first link on Google for the search term "1984 Oldsmobile VIN decoder." It seems that you do have a real Hurst/Olds.

 

Year: 1984
Division: Oldsmobile
Series: Cutlass Calais
Body: Coupe (2 door)
Engine: 307 (5.0) V8 4BBL Hurst/Olds
Restraint Code: Non Passive/Active
Corporation: General Motors
Plant: Lansing, Michigan
Serial Number: 408872

hi

thankyou for your help. I would like to decode all the numbers of the vin, I have found no site that decodes all the numbers of the Vin?  Can someone inform me where to go for that.

I have tried a half dozen vin sites with no success.

thank you

The above decoder shows it to be a 1984 Hurst/Olds. Most of them had a dash plate inside showing the production number.
