i have seen several on eBay and i am not sure which would have the best detail. Would it have the same level of detail as the '69 Hurst Olds version????

thanks,

joe.

The '69 442 and '69 Hurst/Olds are the same basic kit. The H/O adds a few different parts (hood scoop, rear spoiler, center console, etc.), but the kits are 90% the same.

Yea.

I have both. the 442 W30 came out in an MPC box, them ertl released the H/O

version in an AMT box.

Except for the H/O hood scoop, Rear wing spoiler,console and Decals, they are the same kit.

I think the degree of cross over is closer to 98% though!!

The Hurst has "glass pack" mufflers, and a auto trans. W-30 has turbo muffs, and a 4-speed.

They offered both a Coupe & a Convertible.

They are basically the same kit, but there are differences

Besides the body, Boot covert etc for the convert.

The Convert kit also included an Air conditioner compressor & lines.

The Coupe has the W-30 Air Cleaner & hoses.

First issues of the Coupe had a standard front bumper/grill that was supposedly 

modified to move the parking lights inboard to clear the W-30 Ram-Air Scoops

 

Otherwise, yes they are the same.

 

I have both first issues, Coupe & Convert.

I have not seen the Convertible re-issued though.

The Coupe body is currently offered as a Slot car kit.
