The First Man on the Moon Owned this Corvette
When it comes to a car that speaks to the Corvette’s legacy in America in a unique way, this might be one of the coolest I’ve come across in a while.
This one-of-a-kind classic, which was on display at the Kennedy Space Center yesterday, is a 1967 Sting Ray once owned by astronaut Neil Armstrong … you know, the first person to walk on the moon. Yeah, this car is kind of a big deal.
The Corvette, which has piqued the interest of the National Corvette Museum, is now the prized possession of Florida resident Joe Crosby, according to a Florida Today news report.
Crosby, a retired county Sheriff, bought the car in 2012 from an unnamed owner in Georgia. He initially planned to put the Corvette back on the market, but decided to restore and preserve it after an initial offering on eBay soared up to $250,000.
I’d say he made a smart move.
