Developed by Motion Performance, which specialized in tuning cars in order to break multiple AHRA (American Hot Rod Association) and NHRA records, the Baldwin Motion Phase III GT Corvette is the pinnacle of the golden age of muscle cars. Although now a relic, it is still known as the fastest Corvette in the world.
What gave it that edge is the 427 V8 engine, with Muncie M21 4-speed transmission, Edelbrock intake and a Holley 4-barrel carburetor – all aligned to produce 500 horsepower and an acceleration for a mid-11 second quarter mile. Still visually stunning with its ultra-aggressive design you can only find it now at select auctions.
The 1969 model shown here is one of 3 currently known to have survived (a total of 10 were built from 1969 through 1971) and it is distinguished by the early Shelby GT side scoops grafted onto the car’s B-pillars. The car also features a Muncie M21 manual transmission, factory side exhaust, tilt steering column and an AM/FM radio. The 14 different mods performed by Motion include the radical front-end treatment, flared fenders, recessed headlights, fastback rear glass, reversed side vents, custom hood, custom side mirrors, and Ansen slotted wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson rubber. This one-of-a-kind vehicle is estimated to fetch between $110,000 – $135,000.Bid Here
