Real Indy Pace Car or not?
Just looking thru ebay and came across this 69 pace car. Not sure if it is real or not. The trim tag shows 02D and the VIN matches up to that date range. However, this would put it within the same range as the festival cars. Yet this VIN is not on the list of the known festival cars.
So, I have a couple questions. First, were there non-festival cars built within the date range of the festival pace cars? And, what is your opinion on this being a real pace car or a fake? The trim tag shows Z11, but we all know that can be done. There is just way too many things that do not look right, even with just the few photos the seller posted. There is no wood dash trim. Someone added the console gauges as there is no clock, but I do know that not all pace cars had the gauge option. The seller states he is unsure of the pedigree of this car as well. So, based on the little bit we know, what is the overall opinion?
