In the story the Corvette listed as the : FIRST BIG BLOCK CORVETTE IS EXACTLTY THE ONE THAT I HAD . I bought it NEW AT BURT CHERVROLTE on So Broadway, Englewood (Denver Colorado) in late 1965. It was “Glenn Green” in color . So dark it looked Black, with a White interior (Which I did not really like ) . Was called a 1965 and a Half model year. Had Side exhaust pipes running outside the body, and a 456 ratio rear end. 425 Horse Power. I SURE Whish I HAD IT BACK. I (had to) SOLD IT WHEN I WAS DRAFTED INTO THE U.S. ARMY IN 1967. I COULD NOT afford THE $157 A MONTH PAYMENTS FOR IT after I was drafted. The purchase price was $4010 – new !! In hindsight in todays dollars that’s NOTHING!! But in 1966, relatively it was a lot. I made about $3.50 an hour at the time as a TV technician.
It would be worth a million $$ today ! ?? maybe ?? I have had several police departments search for it via its VIN number nationwide> I can’t find it registered anywhere. (It was sold to a school teacher from Pueblo CO for her 16 year old son. I’m assuming that he probably wrecked it ). Does any one know how to find it if it still exist > but maybe not registered anywhere ? I do have the original Corvette owners card with the VIN number on it ? (Somewhere )
