For the African-American gang in Grand Theft Auto IV, see Hustlers.
Not to be confused with Rustler, a fighter plane in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
"Don't worry, the confusion is natural. You see that running board swooping low over the front wheels, that high-set radiator grille, the holder for your cigarette holder, and you're safely back where you belong in the 1920s. But then you see the carbon steel reinforcements to the chassis, the turbo charger and the bullbar, and you're somewhere else altogether. Don't try to make sense of it. Just let it do what it needs to do."
Legendary Motorsport description.

The Hustler is a classic two-door coupe featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the continuation of the Doomsday Heist update. It is manufactured by Vapid in the HD Universe.

Design

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Hustler is one of the oldest cars available in the game, based on a 1933/1934 Ford 'five' window coupe. It is mildly modified, but not the extent of the Hotknife.

The Hustler returns assuming a very similar design. It is still based on the 1933 Ford Coupe in the middle and rear design, but the front is now based on the 1932 Ford Coupe. It shares its interior with the Roosevelt, however the dial needles are shared with the Dukes, which are thicker, yellow arrowed needles, rather than the btype standard red needles. True to real life, the rear of the vehicle can be unfolded (labelled "trunk" in the interaction menu) to reveal a rear seat, although it is unusable and will act as a regular trunk. Interestingly, it will not fly off from driving, despite opening backwards. It will eventually close either from braking or from the jolt of shifting into the higher gears.

Performance

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

The Hustler has a decent acceleration, but excellent top speed, owing to its high-output engine. It has remarkably good handling capabilities for a vehicle of its age and weight; It corners sharply, but suffers from some oversteer at high speeds. The Hustler has a pretty good ramming ability in contrast to its size.

Grand Theft Auto Online

The Hustler can compete with other faster Muscle cars such as the Dukes and its armored variant. Though braking is rather poor, it's main factor is its excellent traction, though oversteer is still problematic of turning a corner too sharply that results in a spin-out. Overall, the Hustler is a very worthy vehicle for Races without too much traffic congestion, but also without too many hard corners as well. However, it tends to lose traction extremely easy on dirt roads, as the lightweight vehicle tends to throw itself over, meaning spinouts and rollovers are common. The Hustler cannot suffer from crash deformation, much like motorcycles and the Panto, although it can still suffer from scratches, broken windows, broken lights, missing body panels, etc. although it is extremely resistant to these types of damage. The axle often will not bend, meaning there is little to no risk of the wheel locking from a hard collision. This combined with the small windows makes the Hustler a great getaway vehicle, albeit for only two people.

Prominent Appearances in Missions

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • Jizzy - When being asked to kill the pimp in Hashbury, and getting close to Hashbury Safehouse, the player can see a Hustler owned by the pimp and he will use it to flee. If the player kills him very quickly, then they can take it to a garage (if the player bought the safehouse they can save it there) otherwise the player must execute him in a drive-by.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • Being a flashy and modified classic car, the Hustler is more commonly available in Las Venturas, mainly at The Strip, Old Venturas Strip and around The Camel's Toe.
  • Sometimes can be found in the Emerald Isle multi-storey car park, at any level.
  • Another Hustler, constantly painted green in line with the Grove Street Families' colors, is owned by Denise Robinson with the license plate reading 'HOMEGIRL', a reference to her life in the ghetto. It is constantly parked in front of her house in Ganton, Los Santos at times when Denise is available for dating (usually in the evening). Until the player reaches a 50% dating level with her, the car will remain locked.
  • There is a glitch in the game that causes Denise's Hustler to respawn in its parking place if you use the Hustler on a date with Denise, so there will be 2 Hustlers when "coffee" time happens; afterwards, you can continue driving the original Hustler. Otherwise, you can only access Denise's Hustler during the hours that she's home.
    • The Hustler that Denise owns can be unlocked before 50% dating level by towing (using a Tow Truck or a Tractor) or pushing it from her home into CJ's garage. When the garage reopens, the Hustler will be unlocked.
  • An alternate way to obtain the Hustler is by entering the All Beater Cars cheat, and Hustlers will appear on the street in large quantities throughout San Andreas.
  • Can be obtained during the second part of mission "Jizzy" .

Grand Theft Auto Online

Trivia

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

  • The default radio station in the Hustler is K-DST.
  • Despite the fact that the Hustler was used by a pimp in "Jizzy", pimping missions cannot be done with the Hustler.
  • Although it does not appear to have a visible fuel cap, it will explode if the back license plate gets shot, as this was the same area the fuel cap was on Ford cars up until the 1950s.

Grand Theft Auto Online

  • The Hustler does not have reverse lights.
  • Unlike its San Andreas counterpart, the Hustler has a visible fuel cap located in the back.
