1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray 427 - Neil Armstrong's Vette
Out of this world barn find! This corvette was delivered to Mr. Neil Armstrong the first man on the moon, on December 15, 1966 from Jim Rathman Chevrolet in Melbourne, Florida under a program initiated by Mr. Rathman to provide our astronauts with a Corvette. They would keep the Corvette for a year and then turn it in and get a new one. This Corvette was bought by a NASA employee when Mr. Armstrong turned it in and was retained by the owner until I purchased the Corvette from him in February of 2012. The Corvette had been in a climate controlled environment and not driven since Sept of 1981. I had tried to buy the Corvette for the past 30 years with no luck until a phone call led to the purchase recently. As can be seen in the pictures the car has 30+ years of dust and has had fender flares crudely added by the owner during it's time in storage. The only thing that has been done to the car since I purchased it is to get the motor running where it can be moved about the garage. I have purchased N.O.S. fenders to replace the originals that were cut for the flares. The only things that are not original on the Corvette are the wheels, water pump, carb and mufflers. I have a N.O.S. Correct date water pump and have located a correct date carb in texas. I have also obtained a complete set of original G.M. Wheels. My initial plan was to restore the car only to the point of "survivor classification" from NCRS, but too many things going at this time and this Corvette is a true piece of history and belongs in a museum or private collection. The tank sticker is complete and still attached to the gas tank and much of it can be read through the dust, I made no attempt to clean it. The Corvette has the following options: 427 C.I. 390 H.P-- A.C.--tinted glass--electric windows-- 4 speed transmission--radio--factory transistor ignition--the spare tire had never been removed from the carrier as the pictures show. There is a high reserve on the car due to it's history which is documented with the original G.M. Protect-O-Plate with Mr. Armstrong's information. The mileage can not be verified due to the speedometer cable breaking sometime during the late 1970s.

From WikipediaChevrolet, also known as Chevy, is an American brand of vehicle produced by General Motors (GM). Founded by Louis Chevrolet and ousted GM founder William C. Durant on November 3, 1911, General Motors acquired Chevrolet in 1918. Chevrolet was positioned by Alfred Sloan to sell a lineup of mainstream vehicles to directly compete against Henry Ford's Model T in the 1920s, with "Chevrolet" or "Chevy" being at times synonymous with GM.
