Pace Car Convertible: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Z11

This Camaro is one of 3,675 produced.

If you’re a fan of motorsports and you’ve never attended the Indianapolis 500, I highly recommend that set aside a Memorial Day weekend in order to do so. With so much history surrounding the event, it’s truly incredible to take it all in. Each race uses a pace car, which leads an assembled pack of race cars around the track during warm-up laps. The list of vehicles selected as pace cars is impressive and very diverse, with models such as this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Z11 being one of the better-known examples.

Ideal Classic Cars in Venice, Florida offers this Camaro for sale. These pace cars use the RS/SS trim and Chevrolet only produced 3,675 of them.

Judging from the practically flawless condition of the interior, exterior, engine bay and undercarriage, it seems this example received a complete restoration at one point, though the advertisement does not specify. The exterior features a Dover White paint color with Hugger Orange stripes, which nicely complements the orange interior. I’ve said this before and will probably say it a hundred more times, but I love the vibrant interior and exterior colors that classic vehicles often feature.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 350 cu.-in. V8 engine, which pairs to a 4-speed Muncie manual transmission to drive the rear wheels. Though the 5-digit odometer displays 56,546 miles on the advertisement claims that the vehicle has 9,999 miles on it, which is likely the miles post-restoration. Additionally, this Camaro has comfort features such as power disc brakes and power steering.
