The Mitchell Corvette

Here are a couple of the photos I took of the 1967 Sting Ray GM styling chief Bill Mitchell had specially built for his wife Marian. It has a 400hp 427 Tri Power and drives like a dream. My article on this car for the Mecum Bloomington Gold Auction is here.

Any Corvette enthusiast will tell you there is no better way to spend a sunny afternoon than cruising around town in a Sting Ray convertible with the top down. But when that town is Newport Beach, CA and the car is this stunning 1967 Ermine White Tri Power convertible, that sunny afternoon is exceptional indeed. And when its owner is along for the ride to tell the car’s story as we rumble around Lido Isle, one gets the full sense of its incredible significance in Corvette history.
