1969 Chevrolet Camaro
A small production run (3,675) of these Hugger Orange over Dover White convertibles were released to commemorate the 2 official Camaros that paced the 1969 Indianapolis 500. Our gorgeous 1969 Pace Car (Z11), like all true Pacecars, is an RS/SS convertible with the correct Hugger Orange stripes over Dover White (50) and the correct orange houndstooth (720) upholstery. It is interesting to note that this was the only non-Z/28, first generation Camaro that received the 'Z/28' stripes. The original 396 big block has been replaced with a dimensionally identical 454. Additional underhood goodies include an Edelbrock Fuel Injection System with Performer aluminum intake manifold with the EnduraShine finish, a COMP Cams split-duration camshaft with roller rockers (Aluminum valve covers), beautiful long-tube stainless steel headers, Ron Davis aluminum radiator, Eddie Motorsports Fender Braces, and Mallory ignition. The tremendous torque is sent through a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and back to a 12-bolt rear axle. Comfort and convenience features include Quick Ratio power steering, power front and rear disc brakes, wood grained steering wheel (N34), Custom Interior (Z87), new gauges with the 140 mph speedometer, and a modern in-dash stereo system. The headlight doors have been upgraded from vacuum to electric actuation for superior reliability. The stunning undercarriage sports new paint, subframe connectors, large diameter Hotchkis sway bars, and a new exhaust system with polished Magnaflow mufflers. A stunning automobile that looks, sounds, and drives the way a muscle car should.
