This 1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible, adorned with the Z11 package, seamlessly integrates the RS and SS options, along with distinctive trim and decals reminiscent of the Camaro pace car that graced the 1969 Indianapolis 500. Meticulously refurbished by its previous custodian, it now boasts a pristine white exterior contrasted by vibrant orange vinyl and houndstooth cloth upholstery. Beneath the hood lies a robust 350ci Turbo-Fire V8 engine, harmonized with a four-speed manual gearbox. Additional features include a retractable soft top, 15″ Rally wheels, front disc brakes, power-assisted steering, striking orange stripes, retractable headlights, chrome bumpers, aerodynamic front and rear spoilers, a Hurst shifter, an aftermarket AM/FM radio, and air conditioning. Acquired by the current dealer in 2023, this Camaro SS convertible is presented with a clear South Carolina title.

Introduced in early 1969, the Z11 package was designed to replicate the aesthetics of the official pace cars for the 53rd Indianapolis 500, in a limited run of production convertibles. With fewer than 3,700 units sold, each vehicle featured a Dover White finish with Z/28-style Hugger Orange stripes. This particular example, refinished by its previous owner, includes a convertible soft top, orange stripes, retractable headlights, front and rear spoilers, and chrome bumpers. Close-up images reveal minor imperfections.

The 15″ Rally wheels are shod with 215/65 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires. The vehicle benefits from power steering, with braking facilitated by front discs and rear drums.

Inside, the cabin is outfitted with front bucket seats and a rear bench, upholstered in orange vinyl and houndstooth cloth. Interior features include an AM/FM radio, lap belts, a Hurst shifter, and air conditioning.

Instrumentation comprises a 120-mph speedometer and a fuel-level gauge. The five-digit odometer reads 251 miles, though the total mileage remains indeterminate.

The 350ci Turbo-Fire L48 V8 engine, factory-rated at 300 horsepower, is accompanied by engine stamping that corroborates the HA suffix, indicating a 300-horsepower, 350ci L48 V8 intended for manual transmission use.

Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission.
