As the Hurst Nationals, Powered by Carlisle Events enters its second year, it promises to be bigger and better than the first! The event is located at the Carlisle Expo Center which is just a block away from the fairgrounds. While the Hurst/Olds may be the first vehicle that comes to mind, Hurst has been involved with AMC, Chrysler, Ford and GM. Hurst continues to build vehicles for the remaining Big Three to this day.

Vehicles such as the SC/Rambler, GSS Dart, SSJ Grand Prix, Rebel Machine, modern muscle and more make up this event. This year marks 50 years of the legendary Hurst/Olds and we're putting together a display of every year of H/O production as well as the proposal cars that Hurst built but never made it to regular production. 2018 is also the 50th anniversary of the '68 Hemi Darts and Barracudas that were so successful, they continue to race today in their own class. To celebrate, we're assembling one of the largest gatherings ever of these rare A-Bodies.

Due to overwhelming interest from owners of vehicles with Hurst equipment, the 2018 Hurst Nationals welcomes all vehicles equipped with Hurst products. Whether it be original factory equipment, dealer-installed or added by the owner at some point, that vehicle is eligible to participate in the show. We also welcome any “what-if” Hurst vehicles as well as tributes. An example of a “what-if” Hurst vehicle might be a 1966 Mustang with Hurst graphics and products. A tribute vehicle could be a ‘69 Old Cutlass that was built to Hurst/Olds specs. If you and your vehicle have a passion for the Hurst brand, this is the show for you!

In addition to the cars above, it was 60 years ago that Hurst-Campbell was founded. We'll be honoring that milestone, too. The show will be rounded out with the newest models from Hurst, former Hurst employees and engineers who actually designed and built these beasts and other featured guests listed below. We’ll have book signings, autograph sessions, seminars and more. All show car owners and walk-in customers will again have FREE access to our Chrysler Nationals event which is held across the street at the Carlisle Fairgrounds. For one low price, you get access to the only all Hurst event and the world’s largest Chrysler show!
