That would have ruined the Sledgehammer body design as would a wing. That car would look great in my garage but alas, no room at the inn.

I hope it goes to a good home.

Wow, I'm surprised to see this car for sale!

I'll just say, I've driven this car a couple of years ago. It's as nice as the pictures and description suggest. But further, it was just a really easy car to drive. The engine was strong, but extremely docile. It idled and drove just like a stocker, but with more power. There were no trade-offs, no extra little things you had to be aware of, etc. Just a nice, strong, well sorted, easy to enjoy car.

It's exactly what you'd want in a convertible, and exactly what you'd expect from Callaway.

Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd re-open this one, as this 1993 Callaway SuperNatural 425 Convertible is available. It was not actively available for sale since 2011, as life got busy.

Since it was listed originally in 2011, it's been in other articles and features, including referenced in a book which included the Callaway story.

While it was removed from the market the past 8 years, the decision was made to list for sale again, and hope it goes to a great new garage. Ad details are below. We are asking $44,900 and will entertain any serious and bona fide offers in person.
Thank you.




1993 Callaway SuperNatural™ 425 Corvette Convertible


Offered for sale, is our 1993 Callaway SuperNatural™ 425 Corvette Convertible. This car is in a word, amazing!

One of two, 40th Anniversary Corvette convertibles drop-shipped from the Corvette assembly plant to Callaway in Connecticut, this car is serial #93-001. Yes, that is right, the very first of the 1993 Callaways and #001 of the two identical cars built that year, which became known as the “Texas Twins”.

Built by a Texas Oil Pioneer, he and his business partner wanted the very best Callaway had to offer as convertibles and each purchased one – they began by ordering their 40th Anniversary Corvettes with EVERY OPTION. I verified this with Keith Boi from the 40th Registry who told me that our car had ALL Corvette options for a convertible!

This car is a rare car to begin with, made even more rare by the fact it is a Callaway Corvette – and serial #001, at that!

From Chevrolet, our car was equipped with the triple-ruby 40th Anniversary option. From there, it had the following:
• Optional factory hardtop
• Optional FX3 Adjustable Suspension
• Six-Speed Manual Transmission
• …and so much more!

From Callaway, it had the following:

• SuperNatural™ 425 Engine Option (383 cubic inch displacement)
• Optl. Callaway AeroBody™
• Otpl. Center Exit Exhaust
• Optl. Bridgestone Runflat Wheel/Tire Package
• Optl. Coilover Suspension

Subsequently, I added a pair of Callaway chrome valve covers (rare!) as a gift from my wife. She also purchased a matching ruby red flannel car cover, embroidered with Callaway 425. We also asked Callaway Cars to make a throttle body plate with SuperNatural™ 425 identified. They did make this special plate for us – it is installed on the car.

This car has been well cared for and always garaged. We are the second owners of this car, as the title was still in the name of the oil business when we purchased this automobile in the fall of 2002.

We have personally owned four Callaways and have enjoyed this one very much. It is also owned by the Founding Director of the Callaway Owners Group, recognizing the significance of this car.

A few of the highlights of this car are as follows:

• Displayed as a part of the 20-years of Callaway Corvettes exhibit at the National Corvette Museum (2007).
• Displayed as a part of the Bloomington Gold Special Collection XX (2004 invitational) Eligible for the Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame.
• Selected as a Corvettes at Carlisle Celebrity Pick (2003, by Keith Boi, Founder of the 40th Registry)
• Feature car, Corvette Quarterly Magazine (when the car was first built, Chevrolet’s official publication followed the Texas Twins home from Connecticut).
• Feature car, Vette Magazine (car was reviewed by the magazine in an extensive article).
• Feature car, Corvette Enthusiast Magazine (car was reviewed by the magazine in an extensive article).
• Feature car, Corvette Enthusiast Magazine (a part of “Son of Sledge, and the King” article)

We have put approximately 10,000 miles on the car since purchasing it in 2002. Most of these miles are to and from auto events however, several trips were made in an enclosed car hauler. When the car isn’t driven, it is garaged and covered, on a battery tender. The registration and inspection are both current and the car has recently passed state emissions testing. The car currently has approximately 65,000 miles.

The dash plaque indicates “001” and “425” which is something Reeves Callaway did special for this car when built and not seen ony any other Callaway SuperNatural™ vehicles that I can recall…

A few years ago, we replaced the clutch assembly (at Callaway) and had other minor maintenance performed. This was done at the Old Lyme, CT facility in the fall of 2007.

Callaway Tubular short exhaust headers from the SuperNatural 435 Package will be included for the price, but not installed. I am sure I've got other items to accompany this car, including many magazines, etc.

This car is a piece of Callaway and Corvette history and should be considered a collectible vehicle and a part of any serious Corvette collection. This is a rare chance to own such a car and may be your opportunity to add an amazing Callaway to your collection!

We are asking $44,900 and will entertain any serious and bona fide offers in person.

I am sure to have left out a few details and would be delighted to speak more about this car to any prospective buyer. Please contact for further details or additional information about this fine automobile.

I have driven this rare and special Callaway and she is sweet but with a POWERFUL punch! I love the color combo with the distinctive Callaway Aerobody. Truly a stunning work of rolling art. This Callaway has been in the best, caring hands since it was delivered new and would be a wonderful addition to your collection or a perfect way to start one!

Thanks. How about a layaway plan for this purchase? It's an awesome car, for sure.
