The pace car replicas were built at both Norwood, H, nd Los Angeles/Van Nuys, A assembly plants. Analysis of the CRG database indicates that about 85% (@ 3125) of the pace cars were from Norwood and 15% (@ 550) were from Los Angeles. All pace cars are RS/SS convertibles and will have 50 A paint and 720 interior noted on the cowl tag; they were the only Camaros built in this color combination. The Norwood cars will also have Z11 stamped on the cowl tag. The LA/VN, A cars were not stamped with Z11 on the tag, ut the colors codes on the tag confirm that it is a pace car since no other Camaro convertible received orange and black houndstooth interiors. The pace cars were all built between 02D (4th week of February) and 05A (1st week of May).

This is 1 of the 550 Los Angeles/Van Nuys, A built pace cars!

Estimating the percentage of 396 Pace Cars that were produced is between 15-20% or approximately 550 to 735 cars. Several sources were used for this estimate. CRG’s database contains data on over 7% of the '69 Pace Cars and about 19% of these cars are 396 cars.
Given these numbers, he 550 Pace Cars produced in Los Angeles/Van Nuys, A were 82 to 110 with BBC power.

Question: How do you distinguish a Camaro that came from the factory with a BBC without an engine in the car? Answer: 1969 Camaros that were equipped with Big Blocks have the heater core connections located out towards the fender to clear the passenger head and valve cover, hereas Small Block and 6 cylinder equipped Camaros had the heater core connections near the transmission tunnel.
There is a installed, ompletely freshly rebuilt, ngine numbers matching 1969 Corvette LM coded factory rated 390 HP 427. Along with all the numbers matching engine is the intake, xhaust manifolds with numbers matching Holley carburetor that can be purchased for an ADDITIONAL $10,000.00 or can be purchased separately.
