The 1972 Hurst Olds Pace Car Convertible holds a special place in automotive history. In 1972, Hurst Performance collaborated with Oldsmobile to create the official pace car for the Indy 500, resulting in the limited-run Oldsmobile Hurst/Olds Pace Car Edition. These unique vehicles marked the first time an automotive supplier’s name was included in a pace car’s official title and the only instance where an Indy Pace Car was sponsored by something other than a mainstream automaker.

This particular example of the 1972 Hurst Olds Pace Car is a rare find, being one of only 54 track-used Indy 500 pace cars. It also served as a Goodyear Giveaway Car and was utilized to produce the Revell plastic model kit and 1:18 ExactDetail/GMP die-cast scale model. Adorned with a unique Track Car Hurst dash plaque and autographed by Linda Vaughn, it boasts the original drivetrain consisting of the 455 cubic inch V-8 engine and automatic transmission with a Hurst Dual Gate shifter. Having undergone one repaint in the correct color combination, it retains its original interior and was even featured on the cover of Automania Gazette & Review magazine in 2011.
