Over the last few years we’ve seen all manner of custom Mustang builds come across our desk (or computer screen as it may be). From home built cars to high-end pro shops, and everything in between, we’ve laid our eyeballs on a lot of Mustangs stuffed with trick suspensions, Coyote 5.0L engine swaps, interiors nicer than our living room, and more. Builds like these don’t come cheap, and for many of us they’re more or less aspirational projects that we can come away with ideas for our own Mustang project. Wheels, stance, paint treatments, and so forth are all things we’ve seen copied from the big buck builds, which is why we feature such cars from time to time both here on Mustang-360.com and in the print edition of Mustang Monthly.

We're looking at a 1968 Oldsmobile FWD Fouranado Olds 442. In 1968 Hurst and Oldsmobile were in the first year of the Hurst/Olds program. One of the Oldsmobile Engineers asked the Hurst Team to assist in the build of an experimental vehicle, the FWD Olds 442., and here it is.
We’re talking with the Owner Fred Mandrick. Fred’s had this car since 2012. The previous Owner had the car for 42 years! This car was in the front, or the “featured car” in 2013 at the Muscle Car and Corvette National ( MCACN ). Fred shares he first saw the car when taking to a gentleman who was putting a Hurst / Olds History book together. There was a picture of this “barn find” Front Wheel Drive ( FWD ) car and he when and negotiated a deal for the car. He restored the car completely back to its original condition.
Let’s say you weren’t the biggest car guy on the planet. Still, you liked the idea of a Tesla, not to mention the look and feel of going electric, and as an early adopter you attracted a lot of attention heading to the store in your Model S. People wanted to know what it is, how it’s so quick, and why it’s so quiet and green. Within a few years, every one of your friends had one, so the novelty wore off. You went back to your eco-friendly lifestyle and forgot what it was like to get attention in a parking lot.

This brings back memories, probably the absolute best styled Mustang ever. As beautiful today as it was the day it rolled off the assembly line. The slats were more common on the Boss 302 but look great on either model. The shaker scoop and 428 CJ just put it over the top, what a car.
