This is my first new car, 1967 Corvette, 427/390. I was going to technical school in St. Louis in 66/67 when the 67 came out, I fell in love and had to have one. I ordered it in May from my local Chevy dealer that I worked for. It was built the first production day of July. When it came in, I prepped and cleaned it up after it came off of the car carrier. I brought it home July 10 1967. I have all the original paper work from the dealer. Both of my children came home from the hospital after they were born in the Corvette. I had it in the Evolution display at the National Corvette Museum in September 1999 and won the Celebrity Choice Award. I was also interviewed by Dennis Gage of My Classic Car and was on the show in 2000. It’s hard to believe I’ve owned it almost 53 years.
