An American Art FormNick
Esposito from Boston purchased his 1967 Corvette coupe in 1979.
We got a chance to speak with him and get close to his prize possession
at this years Mecum auction in Orland Florida. The car was a real show
stopper. It had gone through a complete body off restoration. Nick told
us that every nut, bolt and screw was replaced as part of the
1967 427 Corvette coupe
Nick says the first time he saw the car all he
saw was a classic piece of art. It was love at first sight, he
knew he had to buy it. The car was on its way to his home in
Massachusetts that very same day.
Nicks home only had a two
car garage that was already occupied. The solution was simple, build
another room for his new toy. The new home for the 67 was
equipped with glass doors and climate control. The 67 resided in its
new digs for thirty eight years. Nick would take it out two to three
times a year for a short ride.People always asked him why he didn't
drive the car more often as he drove his other cars on a regular basis.
Nicks answer was that he didn't want to drive his 67 corvette because
it was like a piece of art to him.
The car is in pristine
condition and looks exactly the way he bought it over three decades
ago. C2 is motivated by an L36 427/390hp power plant and has
factory air . Nick has all of the original documents including the bill
of sale, protect-o-plate. And the manual and folder it came in.
