Mark Pieloch’s Car Collection Features Rare 1957 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car

As part of his extensive antique and classic car collection, Mark Pieloch has acquired a beautiful 1957 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser convertible that was used as a pace car for the Indianapolis 500 race. The Turnpike Cruiser was manufactured for the 1957 and 1958 model years and was available as a convertible during 1957. Designed specifically to serve as the pace car for the Indy 500, the Mercury Turnpike Cruiser convertible was later released for purchase by the general public. This elite sports car was painted a characteristic bright yellow that set it apart from its competition and ensured maximum visibility on the track.
