1969 Chevrolet Corvette "Astrovette"

 
FEATURED CAR AT THE CORVETTE CHEVY EXPO HOUSTON

See this 1969 Chevrolet Corvette called the "Astrovette" once owned by Alan Bean, Apollo 12 astronaut and the fourth human to set foot on the moon at the Corvette Chevy Expo in HOUSTON, TEXAS FEBRUARY 15-16, 2014.

 

The Corvette Chevy Expo would like to express a special thank you to Danny Reed of Austin, Texas for sharing this magnificent piece of Chevrolet history with us!

This historic AstroVette was presented an NCRS Top Flight® award in 2002, in 2003 it was presented the Duntove Award of Excellence®, and in 2008, the AstroVette was honored by the NCRS American Heritage® award.

Danny spotted the car in a GMAC lot near his home town in 1971.  His first bid was rejected, but he finally could  purchase the AstroVette for $3230.  Talk about a good investment!

Danny Reed purchased the AstroVette from a GMAC lot in 1971.

Here is a photo of the car Danny took in 1971.

In the 1990s, Danny hired Ray Repczyniski, owner of Corvettes by Ray in Houston to recondition the Corvette, meticulousness keeping it as original as possible.
