Search for particular 06C Black Nose C-1 4N car
« on: January 15, 2008, 05:26:18 PM »
I entered this over at Camaropacecars.com and Camaros.net (where I'm also a member) and wanted place it here too.....


As part of my wife's cars continued research I'm hoping someone on here knows about a particular car that was recently discussed with me and I have a interest in knowing more about.

Its cowl tag is:

06C R
ST67 12667NOR138291
WD 2ZGS 3SL
4N 5Y

The VIN is 124677N238090

I believe this car may have been a very late (or the latest) dealer replica-replica per information from other sources.

I found a 1999 string on this particular car over on camaros.net and just added a response and request for anyone who knows about this car, old owner, or current owner as this car was made 1 day before our 06C C-4 blue topper. It was not imported and is definitely not a Canadian Centenial car.

Here's the string I responded to over at .net

http://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=26561

I am hoping that someone in our group or a visitor knows who currently owns or owned this car that was recently discussed with me.

Thanks guys!

and here's the string I started over at camaropacecars.com where I'm an active member....

Any information anyone has about this car (which hasn't been talked about since the camaros.net string in Nov. of 1999) and how I can reach the past or current owner would be greatly appreciated!

A dealer ordered pacer replica-replica could have be built right up to the last day of production in mid-July.

I do know of several later C-4 cars with blue guts. That was a good color combo and thus was ordered (probably sometimes without even knowing about the pacers).

Haven't heard of the car in question since.......

Thanks for looking for this car/VIN Kurt.   I believe it's out there and was recently told it was a black nose dealer replica....

So CRG has   R (Bright blue)  732-Z deluxe interior  C-4 (Irmine white-blue topper) RS/SS Convertibles later then 06C?


Thanks again.

Rick

Unless someone has talked to the original owner, there's no way of knowing if a car was ordered as a replica or just happened to be ordered with that color combo. Several were ordered like a pacer long before the race, so there's every reason to expect that people ordered them like that after the race too.

You have it narrowed down by eight different specific variables! No.

Kurt,

We're very aware that these cars were made as early as 09A and 12C in 1966.   I'm waiting to talk with the current owner on this particular car as it appears sometime in the past they talked to someone else (a very well know pacecar expert) and told them....

And when we are talking dealership replicas (from say 04A to after the race like 06C or later) we tend to think that that it should follow the genral rule of being an RS or RS/SS Convertible, equipped with a bright blue "R" deluxe "732-Z" interior, C-1 or C-4 to be comparable to the actual and pace car replicas, so this is why I have yet to find another C-4 later then our 06C car.   

Yes their were quite a few non RS, RS, and RS/SS's that were C-4's, built without the bright blue deluxe interiors, but these do not follow the Indy pacer attributes...

Wow!

I missed this thread...

 Rick..... You should contact Donna again and see why she thinks this car is what you are searching for..... She may share at least why she thinks it's a dealer replica.

Tony,

Not a bad idea.  Now that I'm building the list of potential RPO dealership replica cars or black nosers we'll see what we can come up with...
