Fwiw I believe I have a pacesetter promo car. The original L6 is gone but from the broken badge on fender it looked like a 250.
Obviously nothing special , possibly build date coincides with the promo?
I could be wrong.

I think that's just a bit too early. I haven't seen a pacesetter before April.

Would it have been possible for the zone office (since dealer code 0) to get one early for promo duty?
Since I have never seen this combo on another car and can't picture it , I am thinking it was a pretty sharp looking Camaro at one time.

I doubt. It was a discount program.
The zone would be responsible for pushing the program to dealers via paperwork.

And I pulled together a bunch of info on pacesetters:

Exactly..  and the only thing they were intended to 'set the pace' for..  was SALES..   Smiley
ie.. nothing special about the cars except for the options that were discounted to zero....  the factories have always done similar things (and still do) to spur orders when sales are slow...

I realize that it was nothing special I was just thinking since my car has most of those options it may have been.
Now I am also curious why this (nothing special) car ended up at the zone office.

With the the options available at the time, why go for a 6-banger vert?
