There were also 43 Festival Pace Cars used by Festival Commitee members and Speedway Officials associated with the race. There were an additional 80 Pace Cars allocated for the press and other members of the media. These cars were 300hp 350 small block engines backed by a TH350 transmission. The actual Festival Cars were identified by a numbered decal placed on the windshield behind the rear view mirror. Chevrolet produced 3675 Indy Pace Car Replicas during production.

hugger orange fender striping, headlight washers, J52 power front disc brakes, factory dual exhaust, 12 bolt rear axle, upgraded suspension, SS badging, Dover white paint extending under the doors, white convertible top, deluxe orange houndstooth interior, hugger orange Z28 hood and deck stripes, and ZL2 special ducted hood.
