1954 Dodge Royal Pace Car Convertible
1954 was the first year that Dodge built a special pace car edition vehicle for the Indianapolis 500. Only 701 pace car replica convertibles were built with their distinctive yellow body, two tone yellow interior and Kelsey Hayes wire wheels including the rear mounted spare. The Convertible was built on a much shorter wheelbase than the hardtop which gives the car a much more sporty stance.
This Pace Car replica has been completely restored including its powerful 241 Hemi engine with 4 bbl carburator, transmission, brakes and other mechanical systems. The body and paint work is exceptional and the interior is extremely well done. Most if not all dash items are NOS. All electrical systems work as they should.
Everything on this car was restored with exceptional skill and attention to detail. The pictures of this car do not do the beauty of this car justice.
