1986 marked the return of the convertible to the Corvette
line-up, and the return of the Corvette to Indianapolis. As with the
first Corvette pace car in 1978, the 1986 Corvette needed no mechanical
modifications to pace the race. In fact it was the first street-legal
car to pace Indy since the previous Corvette.
pilot and retired Air Force General Chuck Yeager was selected to drive the
Indy pace car.
Chevrolet did not issue a specific
pace car replica but instead designated all 7,315 1986 convertibles to be
Pace Car Replicas, regardless of color, and included decal packages to be
installed by the dealer or customer.
