Fun fact: The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro was the official pace car for two of its three years of production. While most remember the Hugger Orange Houndstooth 1969 replicas Chevrolet sold, the 1967 Ermine White over Bright Blue cars were limited to cars needed to pace the race and its related festivities. Consequently, finding a documented real deal 1967 Camaro pace car such as this restored example originally listed in June 2021 on Craigslist in East Earl, Pennsylvania (Lancaster) is a rare treat. Offered for $75,000, comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their RS/SS Pace Car priced between this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $57,700 and its #1 “Concours” appraisal of $90,700.
Unlike all of the Camaro Indy Pace Car replicas that follow it, 1967 editions are very rare with estimates varying widely on how many supported the 1967 Indy 500. From our research, it appears that just over one hundred were produced. The trim tag and VIN provided by the seller appear to be consistent with this being a real deal car as it is a March/April ’67 build with the proper trim options specified. If you are serious about buying this Camaro Pace Car, we strongly encourage you to contract with a Camaro expert who can confirm this car really supported the ’67 race.
