Here are two photos showing the 1971 or 1972 AMC Javelin AMX that was used to pace the Trans Am Two-Five Challenge event held at Riverside International Raceway, Riverside, California on October 3, 1971.  This is the same car that paced the larger class. 

They were found at the Peterson Auto Museum SEMA digitization project web site: https://archive.petersen.org/pages/home.php

Additional pictures of this pace car can be found in Replies #64, 65, & 66 on page 5 of this thread as well as Reply #119 on page 8 and Reply #216 on page 15.

Check out this cool color photograph of the 1969 AMC AMX that was used to pace the Trans Am race held at Donnybrooke Internaitonal Speedway, Brainerd, Minnesotta on July 6, 1969.

I found it at worthpoint.com which mentions that it was an original 35mm slide sold on Ebay on May 12, 2018.

Additional photos and video of the AMX can be seen in Replies #35 & #36 on page three of this thread as well as Reply #141 on page ten.
