1969 Chevrolet Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car Convertible Additional Info:

This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Indy 500 Pace Car has no shortage of positives going for it -terrific curb appeal via its special edition paint job, the original engine standing eagerly by beneath the hood and a clean, sharp interior come to mind right off. There were fewer than 4000 of its kind made to begin with, and most of those have fallen by the wayside over these past decades, so it's also got substantial collectability to go along... with its outstanding, vintage good looks. A combination of skillful restoration and good care can exert a powerful impact on a classic car and for this one, they've paid especially big dividends. The Dover white body carries a pair of broad Hugger orange hood and deck lid stripes that helped define this Camaro's pace car configuration that are in great form, with clean edges and consistent coloring. Chevy changed the configuration of the signature hidden headlights the year this '69 debuted, giving them distinctive horizontal vents as they straddle a black SS grille, with a pair of close-set fog lights looming below. The badging on all four sides is nice and clean and neither the color-matched bumper up front, nor its chrome counterpart in back show any blemishes. Should inclement weather ever spoil your open-air driving enjoyment, the accompanying white vinyl top raises into place without any drama and has an impressively clear window in back. The interior waiting inside is a stunner, mixing vinyl and cloth while featuring the original orange houndstooth check upholstery that was a defining styling cue of the upper tier Camaros in their heyday. This driving environment has been refurbished to an impressive condition, with a fresh look on its vinyl front buckets and rear bench seat - even the quarter trim in back is in top form. Take your position in the driver's seat and grab hold of the signature Chevy horseshoe shifter to put this beauty in gear and you'll be transported to a different time, emerging at a late '60s era Indy 500 race while feeling like you're leading the pack around the turn as the drivers behind you eagerly await the opportunity to mash down on their accelerators. A factory-style steering wheel is perched on the column and the dash area beyond it is very clean, with functional gauges in its instrument cluster and a supple looking dash pad on top. When this '69 first put rubber to asphalt, air conditioning was a rare feature in a convertible, but it's on board here to keep you and your passengers comfortable during these warmer months. The original 350 cubic inch V8 still sits in the engine bay, fed by a 4-barrel carb that sits under a black air cleaner that contrasts nicely with its orange valve covers and block. The engine pairs with a 3-speed automatic transmission that's shifting very smoothly to make this Camaro a lot of fun to drive. The collection of hoses and belts inside the compartment remain in stock configuration and appear to be in good shape and a number of components have been replaced to up dependability, including the power brake booster and the ignition system. Power steering makes this special edition muscle car easy to maneuver as it paces the field on its set of 14" rally-style wheels wrapped with Firestone Wide O Oval tires. A look at the undercarriage reveals reassuringly solid floorpans and suspension components. If you're searching for an open air classic whose bona fide collectability combines with great vintage looks and an outstanding running condition, you need to see this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Indy 500 Pace Car.
