Indy Pace Car
1986 Chevrolet Corvette Indy Pace Car
Yellow Pace Cars are considered to be a touch more desirable because the actual Pace Car was a yellow convertible and also due to the fact that just over 700 yellow convertibles were made in 1986. So, if you wanted to own that year's Indy 500 tribute car but you didn't want just another 1986 model year convertible with some stickers applied, you could at least buy the car in the proper colors.
This fine example comes with the dealer-applied Pace Car graphics. A very low mileage car, consigner stated 7,258 (WOW!) in excellent condition and all correct including badging and wheels.
All clean bright Yellow paint in very good condition covers this fiberglass car. Dual electric controlled sport mirrors, and a black convertible top works flawlessly. Aluminum wheels with a turbine edge, large disc and deep inner hub with lug nuts and radials are bolted on all 4 corners. All straight panels and gaps well minded are seen throughout. The headlights are functioning well as are the power windows.
Black leather buckets grace the inside of this Vette. They have power adjustments, and several winged bolsters to keep you planted during high speed cornering or showing off making doughnuts. A digital driver information system is seen on the square design dash, as well as the lighted information panel in the center downward dash that heads toward the console. Here we note a 4-speed automatic transmission shifter. Power windows, and power mirror adjustments are here too. A key fob remote access button will get you into the car as well as the rear storage area that has enough room to house the convertible top. Carpeting appears in good condition, and so do door panels.
A 5.7 Liter electronic fuel injected V8 can be viewed within an original engine bay with the flip of the hood. All is very clean and indicative of a low mileage car. Nearly showroom condition. Bolted on back is the 700 R4 4-speed automatic transmission. Keeping everything cool is an all electric fan cooling system. It is noted that this engine runs great and puts out plenty power.
Wonderfully clean, and totally rust-free…looks like it just drove off the lot. A performance handling package is shown here. Suspension includes a posi trac rear, and fiberglass mono leaf spring suspension is seen on the front and rear.
Overall a spotless Corvette that the consigner has stored away for some time. All surfaces have benefitted from this storage in that the exterior and interior are really nicely preserved. The Yellow Indy Pace Car, with this low low mileage is a real collectible, low production car, and a tribute to America's greatest race.
