Following 1971, the major American automakers were reluctant to supply pace cars for the Indianapolis 500. Hurst Performance Products, however, stepped up to the plate with the 1972 edition of the legendary Hurst/Olds, marking the first time in Indianapolis Motor Speedway history that an automotive parts maker, and not a major car manufacturer, paced the Memorial Day classic. In keeping with tradition, the actual pace car was a convertible, driven by 1960 Indianapolis 500 champion Jim Rathmann.

This completely restored and fully documented Hurst/Olds Indianapolis Pace Car replica includes a 270bhp, 455 cu. in. V8, a Turbo-Hydramatic 400 automatic transmission, and a 3.23:1 rear axle ratio. Other performance equipment includes the Rallye suspension, front disc brakes, dual exhausts, the W25 Force-Air induction system, a floor console with a Hurst Dual/Gate shifter, and Super Stock III wheels. This example is also well equipped with power steering, power brakes, a tachometer, clock, steel sunroof, and an aftermarket AM/FM radio. The white exterior finish and black interior, as well as the gold stripes and graphics are in very good condition, and of course, the signature of “Miss Hurst Golden Shifter”, Linda Vaughn, graces the car.
