As we know, at the 1969 Indianapolis 500, there were three ’69 Z11 Convertible Camaros that were the actual Pace Cars and about 130 more of the ’69 Z11 Camaro’s Pace Car replicas that were at the race as courtesy vehicles. There was also a total of 3675 Pace Car replicas (Z11). But there were also approximately nine more of the ’69 Camaros that were used as actual NASCAR Speedway Pace Cars.
These NASCAR Pace Cars Camaros were utilized at each NASCAR track as the Pace Car for the ‘entire 69 season.
All pace cars got the Super Scooper hood, white rear tail panels (even with the 396), ZJ7 Rally wheels, and custom orange houndstooth interior.
All were Dover White with Z/28-style Hugger Orange racing stripes and subtle pinstripes (officially termed “fender striping”). Pinstripes came on any Camaro when you ordered the Style Trim Group (RPO Z21) or Rally Sport equipment (RPO Z22).
1969 Indy Pace Car door lettering were decals, not painted on. The decals came in the trunk, and the owner could apply them as desired.
All Camaros had plain simulated vent louvers between the door and rear wheel openings. Style Trim Option RPO Z21 added these chrome-plate louvers with black accents.
