Does anyone know if there is a listing of the VIN's of the 67 Pace Cars? Ken Moorhead seemed to hint that there was such a list, but it was not being released for fear that folks might "fake" their cars.
I have a 67 RS/SS conv that I believe is a pace car. The car is originally white with deluxe blue interior. Big block, 4 spd, 12 bolt. The 50 year old female that I bought the car from told me it was a pace car, and she bought it from her father in the early 70's. Trouble is, the cowl tag was "misplaced" during a messing separation with her ex-hubby. I checked the VIN, the car was built during the right time period. I just do not have a good way to document the car as the real deal.
Can anyone help?

Post the VIN and the trim tag and surely there will be a lot of people willing to help you. Good luck.

Ken Moorehead only gave out the Canada vins because they are public knowledge anyway. What is the vin? Does the car have the original paint? It should have a blue bumblebee stripe and blue pinstriping. At least post the vin. Kurt probably has a bunch of them on file knowing him. If she bought it from her father in the early seventies is there any paperwork anywhere. Does it have the original drivetrain? Post some date codes as the Pace Cars were only made in a certain time period

Thanks for the responses.
The VIN is 210130, which indicates a 3rd week of March build date. From what I have read, this is prime time for pace car builds.
The drivetrain numbers and dates make sense with the VIN.
The trouble that I am having with documentation is that the trim tag (or cowl tag) is missing. The lady I bought the car from told me that her husband had taken it during their separation. She said he wanted the car badly, so it was probably taken to devalue the car.
She does have old pictures of the car in the early 70's when it was white with a blue nose stripe, although she will not give me one or even allow me to make a duplicate!

I own a 67 pace car replica and have been doing a lot of research on this car. My first advice would be to track this guy down that may have this tag and get it back somehow? VIN merely shows V8 or a 6 hardtop or conv. and what plant produced it. Look for the build sheet in seats,doors. Get numbers off engine,trans,rearend. Does car have factory traction bar? Is it round or radius rod type? Under dash wiring loom tags with date codes. Contact me at email@example.com

I had one of these cars years ago and it is tough to document one, at best. In my research in the 80's, I found that all pace cars in 67 had the console/gauges/low fuel light in the dash. If the car is minus these, it probably isn't the real thing.

I disagree. There are several documented pace cars without gauges and console.
No way to prove it without the trim tag......
But, the old picture with a blue nose stripe is a good sign, and the VIN is in the midst of other pace cars, and the colors are right.
Could you post the #'s off the drivetrain?
$$ may get your trim tag back.......
