Yes, you're looking at a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS pace car. But it's not just history and awesome color combo that makes this one so desirable. There has been a solid restoration investment here that gives you a beautiful body, a bold interior, and some serious big block power to enjoy.
The fact that these are perhaps the most outrageous looking of the '69 Camaros is not an accident. Official pace car replicas have always been attention-grabbing machines, and for this year they took one of their most alluring color combos and presented it in an exclusive way. Dover White with Hugger Orange stripes gives them a unique look that's recognizable even if you were in the Goodyear blimp. We're told the full restoration of this car took place six years ago and there has been less than 500 miles put on it since. And the condition it's presented in today backs up that feeling of quality care and less use. So the bright paint has a high-gloss finish that shows off some impressively straight sheet metal. Plus, all the desirable features are in place, including the RS hidden headlights, SS badging, cowl hood, D80 rear spoiler, and mirror-like chrome bumpers. And of course, it's great to have the pace car livery affixed just in case people didn't realize this was an exceptionally rare Camaro (Chevrolet only built 3,675 examples, barely enough to give half of their dealer network one car.) And while all examples are distinct, this one has just a bit more added flair with a polished set of 18-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with staggered tire sizes for just a hint of an aggressive stance.
Beneath the pristine white folding top is the orange houndstooth interior - a color combo unique to these models. This two-tone cloth sets the tone so nicely. It takes the orange on the seat vinyl, door panels, and boot cover, and it unites them with the darker elements such as the dash and carpeting. This is why it's such a harmonious style inside and out. That's why it's great to see such a solid investment inside. Even the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner is a nicely integrated piece. Of course, what you'll really love is the way this is a great driver's machine. You have a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on a tilt column, a center console with iconic horseshoe shifter, and the full auxiliary readout package.
The added aggressive and driver-ready style really is earned once you look under the hood. You could get a big block pace car replica in 1969, and while this is badged to look like one of these 396ci cars, it's actually powered by a LARGER 454 cubic-inch V8. The ultra-clean presentation is great to show off and it also means you have a strong-running powerhouse. The undercarriage photos not only remind you of the freesheets of the build, but it also shows this is the kind of car that drives with confidence. That's why you also have good cruising features like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes with upgraded drilled & slotted rotors. And the wheel upgrade means you get to fit modern and grippy sport tires.
Complete with title documentation, this is the pace car replica that has been given a comprehensive restoration. The result is a show-ready car that you're also going to want to drive everywhere. So if you love an awesome all-around true classic, call today!
