“As part of the restoration completed in 2010, the body was recoated in Cameo White with gold accent striping,” the listing states. “Exterior features include a scooped hood, Indianapolis 500 Official Pace Car livery from the 1972 race, H/O emblems, rocker moldings, sport mirror caps, “500 Festival” decals, and a dual exhaust system with trumpet-style outlets. The car was reportedly awarded 960/1000 points and 998/1000 points at concours-level events in Massachusetts and Illinois.”

Under the scooped hood is a reportedly numbers-matching 455ci V8, and the listing states the engine has its original four-barrel carburetor, intake, exhaust manifolds, and distributor. The engine is paired with a console-shifted TH400 three-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels through the car’s original rear end.

This Hurst/Olds features power steering, a Rallye suspension package, and power front disc and rear brakes. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 86,691 miles, but the selling dealer states that the true mileage on the chassis is unknown.
