A genuine Corvette supercar, a Baldwin-Motion Phase-III GT Corvette has a new home!
Dateline: 1.12.18, Image – Mecum Auction – One of the 10 Baldwin-Motion Phase-III GT Corvettes went “On The Block” today at the 2018 Mecum Kissimmee Auction. This was the only Phase-III GT Corvette built with the Shelby Mustang-style B-pillar scoops. The car was also featured many times in Marty Schorr’s “Hi-Performance CARS Magazine”, as well as “Corvette Fever” and “Chevy Rumble”.
Back in the day, this was a SUPER expensive custom car. In 1969 a fully-loaded 427/435 Corvette cost just over $6,000 – as much as a Cadillac! A Phase-III-GT could easily cost over $12,000! In addition to the basic Motion Performance package of performance parts, the Phase-III GT had extensive body work. The only part of the fiberglass body that was not modified was the doors! Joel Rosen even came up with a fastback rear glass setup that opened up the stowage area behind the seats as much as the 1963-1967 Sting Ray Coupes! Very cool!
$95,000 for such a unique Corvette is a steal! WELL BOUGHT! – Scott
