Chevrolet “Happy Meal” Now Possible With This 1969 Camaro Pace Car Convertible

There is a popular saying that “no good deed goes unpunished,” but we can prove that’s just word of mouth. Case in point, the Ronald McDonald House of the Central Valley, which has been providing families a way to stay close to children treated in the local hospital since way back in 1984. They accept donations and give a little something back to people with kind hearts, in the form of a spectacular 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car open top.

Sure, there’s just one winner to the raffle that’s scheduled to end on November 20th, but at least everyone who participated will have the consolation of doing a good deed in assisting children and loved ones stay closer together during hospital treatment.

And the charity’s prize is clearly something to aspire to – a ‘69 Camaro Convertible that was produced as a Pace Car special series, of which just 3,675 examples were optioned as Z11 models. Every single unit for that model year was produced by the American automaker in the spectacular Dover White hue with Hugger Orange stripe and detailing.

It also comes with the Houndstooth Bucket Seat Deluxe interior and should be an absolute blast to ride thanks to the 396-cu. in. L35 engine that’s capable of providing 325 hp. The car also comes with many creature comforts in the form of powered convertible top, disc brakes, factory AC, stock chambered dual exhaust system, as well as a spectacular cowl induction hood.

This Camaro special edition was created to celebrate General Motors’ official pacing of the 1969 Indianapolis 500, but it’s not the only interesting prize up for auction through Ronald McDonald House’s official web page.

Instead of settling for just one reward, the charity has decided that donations will be accepted for a total of six draws – of interest to us motoring enthusiasts being the ones that also involve a very red 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe, as well as an Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic 2020 C8 Corvette. There was even a Backdraft RT4 Cobra, but that one has already been snatched away.
