1977 was the fourth of four years that Olds served as the official pace car to the Indy 500 during the 1970's -

more than any other manufacturer! The car used for the 61st Indy 500 was a 77 Olds Delta 88 Targa Top driven by James Garner.

The car featured a unique targa top design that would not be available on the replicas.

Oldsmobile made a limited amount of replicas available for sale.

The package cost $914 and was only available on model N37, the Delta 88 Royale coupe.
