1986 Chevrolet Corvette PPG Pace Car Teal

Chevrolet Corvette – 1986 PPG Pace Car

1986 brought a convertible to the Corvette lineup, as well as an Official Pace Car .


I’m guessing this is an ’86, due to the 1986 C4 Vette being an official Indy Pace Car that year, but I could be mistaken. Judging by the Nissan Z32 300ZX parked beside it, it appears this Teal C4 Corvette was used for at least a few years. (The Z32 was introduced to the U.S. in 1990.) Also note the cab-over hauler truck in the background. There may have been a range this truck was used before switching to the newer design.


Other than the custom roll bar, paint and wheels, modifications to this vehicle are unknown.

  • I remember seeking an ’86 Corvette with PPG markings in a bronze or copper color. It was one of the cars that went in the sinkhole at the Corvette Museum. I don’t know if this is the same car or not.

    • The copper Corvette is an 84 and unfortunately will forever be known as the “Sinkhole Corvette” as the damage was beyond repair. I’m still working on adding that one to the site. It brings a tear to my eye.

  • I stand corrected. Thank you.
