1982 Chevrolet Camaro Z-28 Pace Car Edition
Introduced in 1982, the first of the third generation Camaro was
immediately met with Car of the Year honors from Motor Trend
magazine and selection as the Indy 500 Pace Car. Powered by the
optional 305ci V8 and automatic transmission, this well-preserved
Z28 Pace Car retains its original Silver finish and special
graphics; Red-trimmed aluminum wheels and Goodyear Eagle GT tires
were also part of the Pace Car package.
For consignment a 1982 Z-28 Pace Car. It has all the correct
engine, wheels, and graphics, save for the side door Indianapolis
500 badge above the stripes. A snazzy metallic fabric two tone
interior which includes silver bolsters and blue broadcloth
inserts, and a very low mileage car (23,920) original miles.
Gentlemen start your engines!
Straight silver painted steel panels combine with neoprene crash
bumpers and nose and rear add ons to absorb bumps. A graphics
package which includes a large wide blue stripe decal with thinner
stripes below the large one in a blue fade to light blue background
encircle this car. On the hood dual cove blue fade decals run up
towards the windshield and frame the dual intake coves and inlet in
the center of the hood. On the B pillar is the winged tire- an
iconic symbol of the Indy raceway. On top are removable smoked
glass T tops, and a large greenhouse curved rear window with CAMARO
letters adhered to the upper of the front and back windows. On the
back a small spoiler is above the inset rear lights with another
neoprene bumper below, wrapped in the striping motif. Dual inset
rectangular headlights lead the way, and 15-inch rally style wheels
with a thin red stripe on the outside are on all 4 corners with BF
Goodrich Eagle GT raised white letter tires.
A swing of the doors, and one cannot help but be sucked in by the
two-tone silver bolstered in vinyl, and blue broadcloth inset
buckets up front, and a fold down bench in the rear. Wide black
piping adds some bling to the upholstery motif, as does the silver
on top and carpet on bottom in blue door panels. The dash in its
early 80's square and rectangle motif has various inset panels to
hold switches knobs and toggles as well as the instruments in
analog format. A center console runs from rear to dash and climbs
upward. This houses a glovebox, gear shift lever, window toggles,
AM/FM Cassette radio and fan and air temp controls. On the glovebox
in front of the passenger is an Indy 500 badge. Nice blue thick
pile carpet floods the floors as well as the rear cargo area and
the rear seat back when folded down. Not too much fade is noticed
on this carpet.
The factory numbers matching and looking polished and nicely
preserved engine in 305ci V8 form, has Crossfire fuel injection. A
TH350 3 speed automatic is on back and a 10-bolt 2.93 rear axle is
A slight speckling of road dirt, and very light sporadic surface
rust are noted on this otherwise very sound and mostly clean and
black undercarriage structure and body shell. Independent coil
springs for the front suspension, and a torque arm is on the rear,
with power disc brakes in front and power drums on the rear.
Sitting in this car throws me back to 1982, and I can almost
picture rounding turn 4 on to the massive wide and long straight
reaching for the finish line in the brickyard at Indy. But I
digress and head for our Classic Auto Mall Test Track instead. Here
she performed nicely with great acceleration, good braking and a
nice comfortable cruise. I did not want to go too far due to the
low mileage but put it through its paces where it flew through the
checkered cloths in my mind at the end.
A low mileage well cared for replica of the 1982 Indianapolis Pace
car which was also Motor Trend's car of the year. Snazzy interior,
wonderfully preserved engine bay with matching numbers, and the
1980's graphics the color combo is just right. Bring on the flower
wreath and quart of milk...." Back home again in Indiana"...
