Description

Lot #493 - This 4-speed manual custom Corvette was built by the late, great George Barris especially for Farrah Fawcett. This one-of-a-kind iconic piece of automotive history was found in storage, near Farrah's hometown in south Texas, having been stored for decades. The car was kept just as it was found, preserved for all these years. The car was mechanically serviced to run and drive again. The exterior and interior are just as George delivered the car to Farrah over 40 years ago. This one-of-a-kind custom has been well-documented by George himself in numerous articles and books. It's even been immortalized in a scale plastic kit that is nearly as rare and included with the sale. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an original George Barris custom built for one of America's sweethearts.
