1982 Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car – 8,809 Original miles – Untouched and loved its whole life – A true Show car Survivor in #1 condition.
This car is part of my Personal Pace Car Collection – I only drove it 2 times in the 9 years I have owned it. It has been parked under a high-end cotton felt cover in my climate-controlled warehouse. From time to time I start and run it up to temperature.
I drove this 82 only twice: One time where it won Excellence in Class at the Boca Raton Concours d’ Elegance. The other time I displayed it in response to a PERSONAL INVITATION at the Miami International Auto Show. This was for GM’s unveiling of their Brand New 2010 Camaro.
This example is a 100% untouched and all-original 1982 Camaro. The ONLY changes are New Battery and Tires (I still have these original items, but the sale comes with one set of tires and one battery, you can choose: New Goodyear tires or 36 year old Goodyear tires , and new Delco battery or dead 36 year old Delco Freedom battery. Buy it at full asking price I will give up both sets. Also the original owner had added a trip computer at the dealership in 82. It is era correct and I left it in place, but very easy to remove.
Prior to my ownership, the loving and caring previous owner had received two Chevy Vette Fest: GOLD SPINNER AWARDS – Two different years it won this award..
This car has only 8,809 Original Miles
After the sale, but before delivering to you – I will have my mechanic do a complete run through of functionality. When you receive this car it will be running and functioning just like the day it was new. (I am positive there are no issues, but I want to deliver a car that I am proud to sell, and you are delighted to receive) I AM DOING THIS EXTRA STEP TO INSURE THAT SINCE I AM EXPECTING A VERY GOOD PRICE – YOU WILL BE SURE OF GETTING A CAR THAT DEMANDS IT.
There will be no issues. I loved and pampered this car for 9 years, but I just never ever really got to enjoy it. Time for someone else to have the opportunity. And the Wife wants her garage space back. She is getting a Brand New Daily Driver – (she has 1 car, I have 9) – I must comply.
In 1982, the Chevrolet Camaro would return to pace the world’s greatest motorsports event, the 66th Indianapolis 500. The 1982 Camaro Z28 was the first year of the newly-redesigned body style now known as the third-generation. At long last, the famous Z28 legend comes to Indy – an unbelievable first time in Z28’s long race history. From Z/28’s debut for the press at Riverside International Raceway on November 26, 1966, to the first generation Penske/Donahue Trans Am race cars; from race car to factory stock to the illustrious Pace Car, everyone talked about the Z28 Camaro. Excerpted from The Official Chevrolet Indy Pace Car Book by D.M. Crispino and John R. Hooper.
The Indy 500 Pace Car for 1982 was the Z28 sport coupe which included sport mirrors, rear spoiler, instrumentation, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and other specifications.
I will be listing the 5,208 mile 1993 Camaro IPC, and possibly the 12,011 mile 1998 Corvette IPC next.
