Lot #1372 - Original drivetrain Rally Red on red 427/435hp convertible with 8,000 original documented miles, excellent original interior and soft-top. Original Firestone Super Sport non-DOT red line tires, original bolt-on wheels and original F41 shock absorbers. Ordered new by the musician Freddie Haeffner in January 1967 from Francis Chevrolet in St. Louis, MO, and delivered March 31, 1967. It was used to promote the band Freddie Haeffner and The American Stars in parades and car shows until 1987. When Haeffner decided to order his new Corvette he was able, through special connections, to have two sets of red, white and blue racing stripes painted before delivery at the factory. As time went on, 50 stars were added to the hood stripe, the side of the car was lettered "American Music Special" and the undercarriage was painted gold. In 1985, Haeffner sold the car to Jim Wilson. In May 1987, Ken and Gary Naber purchased the car from Wilson and restored the car to its original condition, excluding the custom racing stripes. Multiple Bloomington Gold certificates and Bloomington Gold Special Collections, Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame and five-time NCRS Regional or National Top Flight award recipient, never scoring under 98.5, Performance Verification on first attempt, awarded the coveted NCRS Duntov Mark of Excellence. Documented by GM Corvette Order Copy (Tank Sheet), this Rally Red/red 435hp, as originally built, still retains a close-ratio 4-speed transmission, 3.55 posi-traction, F41 suspension, telescopic steering column, power brakes, N89 bolt-on wheels, side exhaust, transistor ignition, 7.75x15 Firestone non-DOT red line tires, tinted glass, AM/FM radio and the original white soft-top. Only three factory red/red 435 convertibles have been confirmed since production stopped.
