1993 Chevrolet Camaro Indy 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, and all of 27 miles!! Obviously bought and put away.
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 still wrapped in their factory plastic. Front buckets and a rear 2 plus 2 (sans colorful ribbons) make up the passenger compartment. These present as showroom new. 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 and fairly clean engine bay. It is backed by a 4L60E 4 speed automatic, a 10 bolt 3.23 Posi rear, and plenty of power.
Framing the original exhaust system, we note very light surface rust nonstructural parts, and as expected form a 27 mile car. Floor pans and rockers, toe kicks and lower door panels are all rust free. Independent coil springs for the front, and a torque arm are for the rear suspension. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
With full intention of buying this car, then putting it right into storage, it has now been time capsuled out, and brought back for the world to behold. A mere 27 miles, seats with plastic bags, a showroom engine and one garage scar (if you will) on the LF fender from the storage. All excellent condition and you could say 1 mile per year! Gentlemen start your engines, and reach for your wallet...
