The 1974 Indianapolis 500 was again paced by an Oldsmobile, marking the second time over a three year period. This 1974 event would be paced by none other than Jim Rathmann, who himself drank the celebratory milk in victory lane in 1960. His race graphic adorned ride would be the 1974 Hurst Olds sporting a throaty 455. Rathmann and his white and gold Coupe led the field to green and again paced the field during seven caution periods throughout the day. As the checkered flags waived over the brick gilded finish line, the fans cheered as Johnny Rutherford and his McLaren machine took the victory and his first Borg-Warner Trophy. This car is embellished in the celebration of that day and will forever be remembered in Indianapolis history. This picturesque car is nearly untouched and still ornamented in the history of the 1974 500. Being one of only three hundred to model the same Rocket W-30 code 455 cubic inch motor that Rathmann paced the field with, this gorgeous white and gold automobile is truly astounding. This car has all the Hurst and Olds options and sets itself apart by way of a factory sunroof. The 230 HP engine is coupled with 3 speed duel gate transmission and shows 87,233 original miles. This car continues to impress by way of front disc brakes, raised white letter tires, and rally wheels. The car interior is in near mint condition as well, and features air conditioning, power windows and doors, tilt steering, black swivel bucket seats and sport console. Outside splendor continues through duel exhaust; complete Indianapolis event graphics, sport mirrors, and a louvered hood. This brazen beauty was originally purchased in March of 1975 at Key Oldsmobile in Columbus, Ohio. Included with the car will be the original window sticker, bill of sale, warranty card, and other historic documentation. This car is a once in a lifetime chance at owning a unrestored pace car and a piece of Indianapolis history.
