I found an article in the INTERNATIONAL CAMARO CLUB's IN THE FAST LANE may/june 1990 concerning this car.The article is fairly long so I"ll highlight the major parts. "This 1967 Pace car was given away,through a drawing, from the now closed Eagledale Sears Dept store on the outskirts of Indianapolis.
The car was special ordered by Sears for the giveaway. Since Sears is a large corporation, Chevrolet agreed to build the car without the RS/SS option package.Simply put , Sears wanted to spend as little money as possible...It also has the original ME code 327 cu in motor with a 2-barrel carb(The motor does not have the last six digits of the VIN on the engine pad, but numbers matching is another matter entirely, however casting dates and the protectoplate do match.) Since the car is not an RS/SS , the automatic transmission gear selector is located on the column and it came with full wheel disc hubcaps and a blue top."
There is a picture of the winner and his family sitting in the car . The car has pace car decals on the doors. The article says the owner removed the decals because he thought the car looked better without them.This may start a bigger contraversy to determine if this a replica or not. That is not my intent, it is to help shed some light on this special car.
Thanks , Michael
