Auction Block: 1969 Baldwin Motion Phase III GT Corvette

Dec 14, 2017

Category: Rides

This 1969 Baldwin Motion Phase III GT Corvette has been seen on magazine covers from the 70’s up to the modern era. From their humble beginnings in Long Island during the mid-60’s, Baldwin Motion is known for their promise of delivering 11-second quarter mile performance from their Phase III line.

With only ten Phase III Corvettes completed before Baldwin Motion was shut down by the EPA in 1974 for removing emission control devices, this is one of the last three known to exist. Making only fourteen modifications, including an Edelbrock intake mated to a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Motion was able to pump 500 HP out of the factory L71 engine. Coming up for auction in January of 2018 with just over 46,000 miles and the original owner’s manual in the glovebox, this is one piece of history that has it all.

Purchase: $110,000+
