The Hurst Hairy Olds was two cars, not one. A '66 and a '67.
They were exhibition cars, not race cars.
Each car was basically two Toronado front wheel drive subframes welded together with 2x3" frame rails, with a roll cage tying it all together. They were really crude.
Both cars used 425 engines, not 455s. The 455 was not introduced until 1968, AFTER the Hurst Hairy Olds project.
The engines were built by Joe Mondello and ran on nitromethane.
The cars ran in the 11s, not the 8s.
Retired drag racing driver "Gentleman" Joe Schubeck (owner of Lakewood Industries) was the driver. He didn't want to drive the cars, but changed his mind when they added the exceptionally-proportioned 23 year old beauty queen Linda Vaughn to the pit crew.
This AWD car ran in the 7s, with six cylinders, not 16. And it's a street car too:
