Would you believe a 69 Olds Hurst.? It's a prepainted piece of ....but the price was right, free. rc/AMT said I could return it for a refund, cause they don't know what color it was painted. All this to match the spoiler and correct the interior. Maybe I'll just repaint the whole car.

that was my very first kit as a matter of fact and i have also done some research on the paint but i havnt been able to find much, the paint is really close to the actually color of a 69 hurst olds. If you were to repaint it however it wouldnt be that hard just wet-sand it with 6000 grit, prime it that apply a mixture or about 70% white with 30% pearl white. The actual color is called cameo white and the goldish color is called firefrost gold. The decals can be found in the old AMT kit but i would just paint it on. The stripe on the hood runs from the tooth on the hood up to about mid hood-scoop. There is another stripe down the roof of the car about umn maybe an inch, you might want to measure it. The vents on the hood need to be painted black. And then the curve down the side is also painted the same color as the stripe. The wing is painted the body color and the tips need to be firefrost gold. The valiance need to be striped off and painted firefrost also. Last but not least their is a gold stripe running down the decklid. The only decal should be the H/O badges and the huge H/O 455 Decal on the side of the scoop. The interior however needs to be painted completely. The steering wheel is black with a silver trim running around it. And the dash, seats, doorpanels, and the packaging tray should be black. The 69 used the same Dual-Gate shifter that was also used on the 68. Headrests were black but had a gold band running down the center. The fifteen-inch wheels have chrome outer rim and were painter argent silver. Many were repainted Hurst Gold in the center by dealers and owners. The 69 was also pedestral rear spoiler that were also available on the 1970 cars (w-35). The engine is correct down to the chrome valve covers. The air cleaner should be black and mater to the bottom of hood instead of to the Ram Air Owners. D cast on front of left cylindar head and rear of right head, same as 68. Typing this reminded me of a funny ad about the 69 hurst olds. Its called snarls softly and caries a big stick. It boasts a picture of the famous snarling 69 and it goes like this

Awesome is the world for it.
Your roll up to the light next to the cocky-looking guy in the supercar
He gives it a couple of blips . . . then looks youo over.
And you watch the creeping horror of realization hit him.
"Thats more than a 4-4-2 . . . it's a 69 hurst/olds!
Guys do funny things then.
Some start looking for something under the seat.
Some blow their nise ' til the light changes
Most just look out the other window and try to pretend they never really blipped at all .
Thats half the fun of owning a '69 Hurst/Olds.
The other half is the solid joy of punching that big hurst Dual / Gate shifter through the gears . . . feeling those 455 cubic inches grab you . . . all to the denteel accomplishment of the silkiest snarl you ever heard. That sir is awesome.

Hurstboy: Thanks for the heads up on the possible color. 6000 grit sand paper, Why?? That's why they invented toothpaste, besides giving you a sparkling smile it works great for sanding painted cars for repaint or gloss/clear coating. Smooths scratches in plastic/glass windows too. Thanks again!
