For Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr’s efforts during his career, he was named the game’s MVP and was gifted a sparkly new 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible. That Corvette is presently going to be available to be purchased.
The vehicle in question brandishes a tank sticker that says “Courtesy Delivery – B. Starr.” It stands with its original and patinated Goodwood Green paint, which was intended to match the teams home jerseys and has only barely been touched up. Only 48,000 miles appear on the odo, and they’re believed to be authentic.
Starr possessed the auto for just a brief timeframe in the 60s, and in the end, it came under the control of a lady in Wausau, Wisconsin, who claimed it for two decades. In 1994, she sold it to Michael Anderson, proprietor of Thunder Valley Classic Cars in Minnesota, which by the way, specialised in Corvettes.
Anderson chose to take the body off the casing and clean and recondition its underside.
He supplanted the body mounts, U-joints, suspension segments, bearings and seals. He likewise added another Dewitts radiator, (the first one is additionally included in the auction), redesigned the breaking mechanism, and updated the callipers with stainless-steel piston sleeves.
In the engine sits a 300-HP, 327-cubic-inch V-8 snared to a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission. Anderson says the auto runs and operates well and holds its original gaskets and paint job.
The Corvette sits on Redline tires mounted on Rally wheels, and have the capacity to deliver some serious power attributed to a 3.36:1 positraction differential.
The vehicle additionally includes the original black inside, dark soft top, and tinted windshield. Inside, it features a telescoping steering column and an AM/FM radio.
This piece of NFL and automotive history features at the Indianapolis Mecum Auction May 15-20.
