In order to ship this Vette we had to go with an enclosed transport to ensure a safe ground-clearance. The stingray sits merely inches off the floor and no one (and I mean NO ONE) wants to scratch such a thing of beauty.
As many had expected the flashy new car actually made it to car and drivers top ten list.
“With a 6.2-liter V-8 making 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, you can now choose an eight-speed automatic transmission in addition to the standard seven-speed manual. It sheds its unrefined reputation and has an interior befitting its stature. Offered as a targa or convertible, the Corvette is a performance bargain that you must drive to believe.”
Few things say 60’s America like a Chevy Corvette and few Corvettes are more desired then the 1961 315 Fuelie. These models marked a new era for many leaving behind the “curvaceous rear fenders” and heavy use of chrome.
Our client Frank was quite please with the entire shipping (classic car transport page) process.
“Having that truck there on schedule was priceless and allowed me to take in an Oakland A’s game with an old buddy and end my weekend with dinner on Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. I was nervous about pulling everything together at the last minute and you did it Kasey. Thanks buddy and I wish you the best of luck with your business.”
This week we are so proud to feature this 69′ Chevrolet Corvette. We were able to provide a classic car transport from Texas to Georgia. There are some great pictures above, some even include actor Gary Sinise. Our customer Jeff shared the incredible story about the cars original owner.
It’s a very appropriate time as this past Monday was Memorial Day. We would like to thank all our countries’ servicemen and servicewomen for putting their lives on the line every day for the safety of our country. We love you and G-d bless America.
“This car and kids story is really impressive. It was purchased new in August of 1969 for a young man who had just signed up to go and fight with his oldest brother in Nam. He took some road trips with his buddies, then he reported to basic at Ft. Bennington in GA. After completing his training, he took another trip or two in his new Vette. He left for Nam, he was there for 21 days before he was killed in battle helping his fellow platoon members. He received the Bronze Star for his bravery that day on the battlefield.
His distraught parents put the car away in the garage for the next 44 years. His mom and dad have since passed, his oldest brother passed from the effects of Agent Orange. His surviving brother lives in Sarasota. This is a special car with a very special story, I just can’t believe how damn hard it’s been to get any traction on this story, kid and his car. They write country western songs about this stuff….
NANANANANANANANANA Batmobile! Batman was in crisis mode, he had just spent a lovely weekend in the Gotham Islands with a beautiful woman and…What, why so serious? Of course it was with Vicky Vail. Anyways, back to our story, the Batmobile was having some engine trouble and he needed it shipped ASAP to Gotham city. Well, really New York City but let’s not be picky. He needed the expertise of a reliable exotic auto transport service to come to the rescue (he also threatened to break our necks if we didn’t).
After hearing that we offered enclosed car shipping it was not really a question. Now all we needed was the car’s info – This was no easy task, Batman likes to keep things private. Speaking on behalf of his car he just kept repeating “It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.”After much interrogation and a promise to buy Batman some new tights he eventually caved (excuse the pun). Deep down, the Keaton-mobile is comprised of a chevy V8 engine, modeled after a 1970 Corvette body and built on an Impala chassis. Hey, look at that we just so happen to specialize in shipping Corvettes and Chevys.
What we found even more interesting was just the other day some dude Robin called about our enclosed car transport service. He said he was about to purchase a car on Ebay for $620,00 and it had the exact same description. Strange, no? Probably just some wannabe Batman.
Since we are in the business of saving the world (or maybe just your car) we took care of business. As promised the car was delivered with our special “Door to Batcave” Guarantee. The driver was very professional and delivered the car without any funny-business, he was no joker. Batman got exactly what he needed, a no hassle reliable auto transport service.
A week late Batman called to thank us but we couldn’t exactly hear what the quiet mumbler was saying “uhhhuhuhuh you uhuuhuh great job uhuhu break your neck uhuhuhuh” We just assumed he was happy.
