1993 Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car
The Indianapolis 500 auto race has used a pace car every year since 1911. The pace car is utilized for two primary purposes. At the start of the race, the pace car leads the assembled starting grid around the track for a predetermined number of un-scored warm-up laps. Then if the officials deem appropriate, it releases the field at a purposeful speed to start the race. In addition, during yellow flag caution periods, the pace car enters the track and picks up the leader, bunching the field up at a reduced speed. Prior to the first "500" in 1911, in the interest of safety, Indianapolis Motor Speedway founder Carl G. Fisher is commonly credited with the concept of a "rolling start" led by a pace car. Nearly all races at the time, as well as all Formula One races even to the present, utilize a standing start.
For your potential purchase and enjoyment, Classic Auto Mall brings you an Indianapolis Pace Car Edition Camaro from 1993. With its ribbonlike colored graphics to its two-tone black over white and computer stitched interior pattern this car takes badging to a new level. All Indy graphics, all great shape, and all Z28!
Like a Tuxedo that attended a party, we have black to the 3/4 waterline, then white on the lower quarter. Beautiful unmarred ribbonlike colored pin striping rides the wind and whips from front to back of this car on either side. A speeding Indy Car graphic is on the door panel, and special badging of the wing and wheel Speedway logo since its inception, grace the panels as well. Fantastic white wheels are noted on all 4 corners and carry the white all the way around through the lower quarter of the car. The hatchback has a small spoiler attached to the rear of it. “Removable “T” tops are noted on the roof.
Not unlike the exterior, we see cloth seats that have a white to black confetti fade, and an overlay of more colorful ribbon. Front buckets and a rear 2+2 (sans colorful ribbons) make up the passenger compartment. These present in overall good condition. A crack free dash houses all the essentials, and a tight headliner looks down on all this amazing activity going on in the fabric pattern.
A 350ci LT1 with aluminum heads, EFI, and 275hp, sits in an original clean engine bay. It is backed by a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission, a 10 bolt 3.23 Posi rear, and plenty of power.
Framing a Flowmaster exhaust system, we note patina and surface rust which is age appropriate, nonstructural damaging, and as expected. Floor pans and rockers, toe kicks and lower door panels are all rust free.
Gentlemen start your engines!! A one owner 22,254 mile car, always garaged, and well maintained. We did note the ABS light is on for some reason, but that would be the only issue in question with this car.
