The first model year of the fourth-generation 1993 Chevrolet Camaro only came in two trims, the base model that came with the 160 horsepower 3.4L V6, and the Z/28 model that came with a 275-horsepower 5.7L MFI V8 (the LS1 arrived in the 1998 model year). While it’s pretty hard to find many Camaro enthusiasts that will rank the fourth-gens at the top of their production hierarchy, the 90’s-era Chevy Camaro is still a pretty cool muscle car. That’s especially the case for the six Chevy Camaro Z/28 Indy 500 Pace Car Edition muscle cars that are headed to the Orlando Mecum Auction at the end of this month.
Six 1993 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Pace Cars
The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Pace Car Editions were offered in 1993 as road-going replicas of the actual Camaro Z/28 that paced the 1993 Indy 500. There’s probably not a better visual representation of 90’s styling than these Camaro Pace Car Editions. The strange multi-colored pinstripes that separate the two-toned black and white exterior body panels just screams 1993. While these Camaro Indy 500 Pace Car Editions aren’t that rare considering Chevy made 645 of them, they are no doubt the cleanest, lowest-mileage examples in the world. Between the six cars, odometer readings range between a mere 17 and 79 miles. None of them have ever been registered.
Perfectly Preserved 1990s American Muscle
Unfortunately for the purists out there, all six cars have the more expensive and optional 4-speed automatic transmission. Of the six, three of them come with the original window sticker and the T-top removable roof panels. Interestingly enough, the window stickers show that the Indy 500 Pace Car Package was only a $995 option. A look inside the cabin and you’ll notice that the two-tone black and white/multi-colored pinstripe combinations also found its way into the interior, matching the car’s exterior in a horribly perfect way. All of the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Indy 500 Pace Car Editions are offered with no reserve and according to Mecum’s valuations, will fetch somewhere between $30,000 and $40,000. Not a bad investment for a car with an original window sticker of just under $22,000. Who ever would’ve thought a fourth-generation Camaro could have possibly appreciated in value?
