John Greenwood is a legend in the world of Corvettes. Through the ’70s, while production Corvettes struggled to maintain as much performance as possible, John and his brother Burt built a series of stunning C3 Corvette race cars. Arguably, the most famous of the Greenwood Brothers Corvettes was their famous “Batmobile” very wide-body Corvette that was more aerodynamic, and produced lots of down-force on the car’s huge racing slicks. Greenwood needed as much traction as he could get to better work his ZL-1 427 engines, rumored to be making upwards of 700-hp, perhaps more! Read More

In the history of endurance racing, some entries have notably stood out in sheer importance, and the car being made available here will satisfy the most discerning criteria. We are proud to present to you the 1974 Greenwood Corvette chassis number 002, the ‘Spirit of Sebring ’75,’ the first and most famous of only six Greenwood wide-body race machines ever built.
Moreover, this particular car, powered by the legendary Chevrolet L88 big-block race motor, was John Greenwood’s personal favorite and the only one to be raced as a Greenwood ‘team’ entry (the other five examples were built for customers). Helped by direct GM support for its then-latest IMSA aero-restyling effort, the list of accolades it holds among the Greenwood cars is impressive—most pole positions, most race wins, and most ‘fast lap’ records, plus the overall all-time highest official speed ever recorded by any car at Daytona: 236 MPH. ‘Sebring ’75’ is also the most original of the surviving cars, and was never badly damaged nor in a serious accident.
