Besides the two specially prepared cars used for race duty other pace car replicas were also used at Indy in May 1969. These cars were allocated to Speedway Officials (7), USAC (5), 500 Festival Committee members (43) and finally 75 to other dignitaries (press, Chevy officials ..). A limited number of these cars are known today by their VINS however no "official" list of the cars used at Indy in 1969 is known to exist.

This not a question that you will get a straight answer to. There are way to many variables the get a straight answer. Each buyer and for that matter seller all have ideas of what they are willing to pay or sell an item for. To some originality is key others it might be documentation and the list can go on. The best place to get more guidance is to join us in the Bulletin Boards and discuss the issue. Most important remember - the car is worth what a buyer is willing to pay and that a seller is willing to accept. PERIOD.
The actual race prepared pace cars were built at the Norwood Ohio plant. Dealer replicas were built at either the Norwood or Van Nuys plant.
All Norwood built pace cars contain the Z11 cowl tag coding. However the Van Nuys cars do not. This has been proven by actual build sheets containing the Z11 options code from Van Nuys built pace cars as well as original window stickers from Van Nuys.
