1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS USGP Pace -  $199,900

The 1969 United States Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on October 5, 1969 at the Watkins Glen Racing Course  in Watkins Glen, New York. It was a race of attrition, beating up cars and drivers, and ultimately, only 6 of the starting 18 cars finished the race. That also meant that the pace car for that race, this 1969 Camaro L78 convertible, would get quite a workout.

This is the actual car that paced that race back in October of 1969, and retains its original engine, transmission, rear end, and all ancillary parts. It recently received an extremely high quality restoration to correct pace car specifications, and is one of the most important 1969 Camaros ever built. They built a lot of Indy pace car replicas, but this is the genuine article and not a replica built for the general public.
