Yet another racing-related car from the upcoming Russo and Steele Scottsdale auction in January. Unlike so many “pace cars” around which are really just limited editions made to look like official pace cars, this 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 convertible did see actual service, at both the 1969 Daytona 500 and the 1969 Firecracker 400. It’s also been used as a parade car

Not only that, the car was originally owned by NASCAR co-founder William C. France, Sr. Restored to its original livery, the Camaro comes with a copy of the original title, and photographs from the Daytona archives. It’s also fully loaded, with a 396 big-block engine that puts out 350 hp, a Turbo Hydramatic 400 transmission, power top, power windows, and even air conditioning for those days when you don’t want to drive with the top down.
