1986 Corvette convertible. Special commemorative Indianapolis 500 pace car edition. 1986 marked the return of the Corvette convertible after an eleven year absence. All 1986 Corvette convertibles are badged as special "pace car edition" models. Marty purchased this car in October of 2001 after spotting it parked on a side street in Newport Indiana the weekend of the Antique Auto Hill Climb. It has been garaged its entire life.

The (5.7 liter) 350CID V8 engine with tuned port fuel injection delivers the famous Corvette punch! This era is the beginning of the return of high horsepower performance to these famous GM sports cars.


The wheels and rear wing are aftermarket items and have the look of those used on actual Indy 500 champ cars.

The interior is red leather. This automobile has the optional GM Bose stereo system, and all available power accessories.
