I’ve been involved with Corvettes for over 40 years now. Wow! I can’t believe it’s been that long! As these years have passed, it’s become ever increasingly more difficult for me to find an old Corvette that I actually want to purchase. The newer C6 Z06 and ZR1 models are wonderful cars to drive, and it makes it more difficult for me to get back into a vintage Corvette.
Let’s talk about the photo pictured above. I’m certain that this car is in storage on the west coast somewhere and it might be in pieces after all of these years. I can’t claim that I know what it’s current paint color might be, but it was orange the last time that I saw it. This Mr. Pickett Corvette was sold by Bob Pickett to a man by the name of Larry Martin. It was repainted a bright orange color in the mid to late seventies. During which time it was renamed the Vicious Vette and was drag raced at Irwindale Raceway and Orange County International Raceway. The last known driver was Randy Goodwin. So, if Larry, or Randy is reading this, or if anyone else knows about the location of this car, please contact me so we can talk.
I am looking for some specific 1969 Corvettes from the St. Louis Missouri area. The descriptions are below.
I’m looking to purchase a 1969 Corvette that was sold before I got there to buy it. It was for sale around 1980 in St. Louis Missouri. It’s a black coupe and was equipped with a 427 engine, 4-speed, side exhausts, American 200S wheels, and it had a white stripe. The 427 engine was a solid lifter 435 HP version, but the tri-power might be missing. It may or may not look like that now, but I can still identify it. If this car sounds familiar or if by chance it’s your car, please contact me so we can talk.
The other 1969 Corvette that I’m looking for is another black coupe. It was last known to be in the Marion Illinois area and was owned by an individual in the carpet business. It is a 427 390HP automatic car loaded with options including factory side exhaust. Last seen with Ansen Sprint aluminum wheels. It may or may not be black at the present time. If this car sounds familiar or if by chance it’s your car, please contact me so we can talk.
Another 1969 Corvette that I’m looking for is a gold coupe. It has a 427 engine and has several options. When I last saw this car in St. Louis Missouri, it had a black stripe. This was back in the mid to late seventies, and I suspect that it might still be in this condition. If this car sounds familiar or if by chance it’s your car, please contact me so we can talk.
I’m looking for a certain 1968,1969,1970,1971,1972 Corvette. You can identify it by sitting in it and then contacting me. What you need to do is when you sit in it, look at the center gauges and heater controls. Between those two areas, if you see a flat plate that covers the area where the radio should be, we need to talk. But before we talk, when you get out of your car, go back to the rear fenders. If there is no antenna, then contact me. If there is an antenna, it’s not the car that I’m looking for. So if you want to further discuss your car, please fill out the form below so we can talk.
I would like to have the opportunity to meet you and to inspect your Corvette for purchase.
I understand and appreciate the time and effort that your family has made to keep and preserve your Corvette since it was purchased by your family member.
Please contact me through the form below. Simply fill in what you can and press Submit.
I will travel and pay fair market value based on condition for the right Corvette! Thank You!
