Lot #413 - Chip Miller was co-founder of Corvettes at Carlisle and Carlise Events in Pennsylvania. Chip was very well-known and loved in the Corvette community around the country. In March 2004, he passed away from a little known disease called amyloidosis. The Chip Miller Charitable Foundation, CMCF, was formed shortly thereafter to help spread awareness of this disease and raise money for educational and research purposes. The foundation's goal is for earlier diagnosis to affect better treatment outcomes. If Chip and his doctors were aware of the symptoms of amyloidosis when they first presented, he may still be with us today. The mission of the CMCF is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures. The Corvette offered here is a 1973 T-Top coupe, matching numbers car powered by its original L48 350cid V8 with an automatic transmission, factory air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, tilt and telescoping wheel, original owner's book and T-Top storage bag. Less than 86,700 original miles. Recently serviced, new brake calipers, detailed and donated by San Diego Classic and Muscle Cars of Escondido, California.
