1985 Detroit Grand Prix F1 Race Mercury Motorsports Capri Pace Car

This car is the ACTUAL RACE PACE CAR 1985 Mercury Motorsports Capri that paced the 1985 Detroit Grand Prix Formula 1 Race. This car was specifically built by Mercury Motorsports for Pace Car duty at this race. The car also performed Pace Car duty at other Trans Am races that year as Mercury Motorsports was a sponsor of the Trans Am Series.

The car is complete as retired from Pace Car duty down to the original graphics applied to the car. The car has had long-term ownership with 3 owners including me since the race. Although complete the car needs a complete restoration as the car has been sitting for many years. Currently the 302/5 Speed Engine/Transmission are out of the car and very complete. The car is complete and with all the unique pace car parts including the "Shaker" hood scoop that was installed. The car now has 48K miles which is original. The car is very original and a time capsule from way back when! This car is confirmed as the actual race pace car for the 1985 Detroit Grand Prix F1 Race by the 1985 Mercury Motorsports Capri Registry.
