Pace Car Registry has again been contacted by our
friends at the National Corvette Museum in search
of the owners of 2007 Indianapolis 500 Pace cars and
we are passing on this important information to you!
below is an example of one of the plates that they
have in their posession that Chevrolet had intended
to distribute to the first owners or the 2007 Pace
Above, license plate from Build Sequence # 25
way this was to work was when the cars were sold,
Chevrolet would mail out a welcome pack to the owners
that contained the following :
letter of authenticity containing the VIN number
and signed by Ed Peper, Chevrolet General Manager
and Tony George, President and CEO of IMS
Thank you letter from Gary Claudio, Corvette Marketing
2007 Indy 500 Pace car "Hero card"
Thank you post card from Ed Peper, Chevrolet General
Manager with a mail-in card to register for updates
on the latest news
$50 certificate that could be used for a purchase
from Chevrolet of a "Genuine Corvette Accessory"
license plate that contained the Indy 500 event
logo, and the build sequence number of the Pace
course, after a certain amount of time, Chevrolet
gave up on the project, just like the Photo Books.
These are not the "official" event license
plates assigned to track and festival cars. Pictured
below for comparison is one of those license plates
you can see, the "official" plate above
also contains the date of the event (5-31-07), Chevrolet
BowTie, "Indianapolis 500", and "Official
Pace Vehicle". The background of the plate above
contains the checkered flag "swooshes on the
top left and lower right of the plate.
For the two license plates pictured, both are correct
for the same car. In this case, the Sequence numbered
plate 25 signifies it was the 25th Corvette Pace car
produced, and this car was also used as a track car
during the Indianapolis 500, and was assigned license
plate # 18.
Museum has MOST, but not ALL of the Build Sequence
license plates. To inquire about how you may obtain
yours, please contact Betty at the National
Corvette Museum at firstname.lastname@example.org,
or by phone at 1-800-53-VETTE. Please note that Chevrolet
has donated these license plates to the NCM to be
used as a fund raiser, and they will be asking for
a tax deductable contribution of $50 plus s/h.
will be required to provide the full VIN of your car,
your name and contact information, and if you know
already, the sequence number of your car. Betty can
explain more, so call her ASAP.
