Corvettes of New York State Exhibit

Words Bob Sblendorio, photos Thomas Sblendorio:

    The cover features a very special 1964 Corvette that was recently donated to The Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum.  That car was on display at the 1964 World’s Fair in NYC and is now back in New York…that’s huge!  It is fuel injected and has 15 coats of (original) candy apple red lacquer paint.  The museum is ecstatic to have this car donated and it is now part of a new permanent exhibit known as the Corvettes of New York State.

The other Corvettes that were donated and are part of the exhibit:

  • 1962 Fuel Injected Long Island Race Car:  This SCCA National Champion Corvette last ran at the 2002 Monterey Historic Races, saluting the Corvette’s 50th Anniversary.
  • 1964 Stingray Bill Mitchell Styling Coupe, is all hand-made.
  • 1969 Factory Lightweight L88 Race Car, is a SCCA Champion.  The #8 won an incredible 46 of 49 starts and in 1969 set a record at Daytona going more than 200 mph.

This incredible exhibit is a must see for any car enthusiast!
