In reading the wikipedia entry for the 442, it seems that the three-speed transmission was standard starting in 1965. The four-speed manual was optional.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_442
https://en.wikipedia.org...i/Oldsmobile_Hurst/Olds

Can't find anything that states if the Hurst 442's were available with the four-speed manual, but I found two different 442's that both have the three speed automatic.

While there may be four-speed manuals out there, the three-speed is what T10 was able to model. I don't think there's anything that needs to be fixed.

Just to add one thing, the 69 Hurst Olds in game only ever came with a TH400 automatic (all 913 cars produced with the H/O option).

According to Wikipedia, the cars comes with 4-speed manual, 3-speed manual, 2-speed Jet-Away automatic, 3-speed Turbo Hydramatic automatic transmission choices. So there is nothing to fix, yeah, as they selected the 3 speed manual for the car.

Wouldn't the 4-speed be the most desirable version for racing?

There are numerous examples of including the newest/fastest/ugliest instead of the most realistic. Mazdaspeed NC MX-5, Murcielago, Gallardo..
