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

Interview With VETTE Magazine Founder & First Editor, Martyn L. Schorr – Pt. 2

Let’s see, a good Zora story. He had a mule car that they called his “silhouette racer” concept car. It was the car they used to developed the wide IMSA body parts that Greenwood made famous. The car was primer gray, had an L-88 with open header side pipes and a full roll cage. One day, he took me out on the high-speed oval test track. We were going full-tilt, with the tail slightly out, while he had a cigarette in his mouth, and was explaining suspension geometry and big-block engine development. He had great control of this animal car. Read More

The Sights & Sounds of the Baldwin-Motion Experience

Sometimes special “teams” organically seem to come together. You know, duos, such as, Abbot & Costello, Burns & Allen, Martin & Lewis, Lennon & McCartney. The specialty car market has a similar dynamic duo. But because what they created was so brilliant, it mostly took the spotlight off of them and on to the real stars, the Baldwin-Motion Phase III Supercars. “They” happen to be former editor of CARS Magazine, Marty Schorr and owner of Motion Performance, Joel “Mr. Motion” Rosen.
