Not to be confused with the Rustler.
Like the Hotknife, the Hustler is one of the oldest cars in GTA San Andreas (it is also a hotrod), evidently based on a 1933/1934 Ford "'five' window coupe", but is very similar to a Fiat 508 "Balilla", mildly modified, but not to the extent of featuring the Hotknife's hotrod design.
The Hustler corners sharply other than that it has modest performance. The Hustler has a pretty good ramming ability in contrast to its size. Although it doesn't 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 the Ford cars up until the 1950s.
- Wheels (ten types)
- Nitro (All)
- Bass Boost
- The default radio station in the Hustler is K-DST.
- Despite that the Hustler was used by a pimp in Jizzy, pimping missions cannot be done with Hustler.
- The name may be a reference to the album that "Murder Rap," by "Above The Law" is on called "Livin' like Hustlers." This song can be heard on Radio Los Santos. It might just be pure coincidence though.
- Being a flashy and modified classic car, the Hustler is more commonly available in Las Venturas, mainly at The Strip.
- 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. (Can be obtained by using the PC cheat code of beater/junk car.) 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.
