This 1972 Official OMS Pace Car Duplicate: is at present one of only two known survivors. Fifty were originally produced by Nissan Motors to commemorate the DATSUN 240Z being selected by the Ontario Motor Speedway to Pace the 1972 "U.S.A.C. California 500 Championship"

The 240Z below was originally purchased from Gillian Datsun in Inglewood, CA. Driven until the early 80's with its original OMS livery. The original owner tired of the graphic's and painted it using a Jaguar Burgundy color code - - then drove it until the mid 80's when it was stored away.

Pulled out of storage and sold to a friend in 2007 who began its restoration. Shown below the layers of paint are peeled away reveling the original OMS Blue of 1972.

This 1972 Official OMS Pace Car Duplicate This is the second known survivor. As you can see it is still wearing its original OMS Pace Car livery.
