The Duntov Files, Part 2 Car Life Magazine July 1969 Wildest Corvette Test Yet, FREE E-Book

Back in the day, car magazines typically came out the same month, or the month before the specific month printed on the cover and on the footer of every page. I got my July 1969 issue of ”Car Life” as my summer vacation was beginning. I had just graduated from junior high school and was about to turn 15-years-of-age; almost two years away from when I could get my driver’s license! Read More

Founding Fathers Pt 4: Corvette Godfather, Zora Arkus-Duntov

One of the definitions of the word, “godfather” is; “one that founds, supports, or inspires”. Of all of the Corvette’s “Founding Fathers” none are more deserving of the term than Zora Arkus-Duntov. It is not an exaggeration to say that were it not for Duntov, the Corvette never would have made it past 1970!

Although the Corvette fit the definition of a “sports car”, when Chevrolet released the car in 1953, they said that the car was, “not a sports car”. But when Zora saw the Corvette at the 1953 GM Motorama in New York City, he said that it was the most beautiful car he had ever seen, and knew instantly that he wanted to be a part of the new Corvette team.

1969 Baldwin-Motion Phase-III GT Corvette SOLD for $95,000! – VIDEO

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 around $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! Read More
