I think The Modelhaus makes the GP convertible- a VERY rare, one-year-only model. The Hurst decal shouldn't be too tough to turn up, although I'm not sure if one that size is readily available- perhaps a 1/16 drag/race car sponsor decal would be about right?

The black/gold two-tone can be accomplished pretty easily with either spray can or airbrush.

I've never seen that car before- I do like it and I'd build one, too.

I'm not sure this is a restoration . I followed all the Hurst Cars as the awesome work Linda Vaughn .
Miss Hurst U.S.A. is still very attractive . Not as much as my wife is to me . This is a site of not so
much Stock or One of's any how . Specialty vehicles , you betcha ! easy to make this one for sure .
Thanx ..

Modelhaus offer the convert for 81 bucks, the hardtop is 79 bucks. BOTH are curbside.

Agreed on the Hurst "H". It's the lettering on the rear quarter panels which may prove to be difficult to find/replicate.

Oops, didn't see that. The reflection in the picture. Does anyone have any more pictures of this car, preferably straight-on broadside? You might be able to cobble up some decals with MS Paint, GIMP or Open Office Draw.

The few I found Googling aren't that clear, but the lettering says "Linda" Miss Hurst Golden Shifter: http://www.dupontreg...?itemid=1288002

Some nice vintage images here, showing the car sans the rear quarter panel lettering, but some nice shots of the Hurst "H" on the doors: http://www.yenko.net...r=271488&page=5
