Default F/S: 1993 40th Callaway SuperNatural 425 AeroBody Convertible #001. Rare, must see...

What an amazing car! Just offered for sale for the first time in a decade!

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.

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.

Chris, two bad it is a Supernatural, Looking for a B2K. Let me rephrase that, This is one beautiful car, I doubt my wife will let me buy two more Corvettes, I am currently in the Market for a 91 B2K roadster.

Anyway this car was the feature story back in June of 1996 for Vette magazine.

How tempting........

Really wanted a Twin Turbo...could justify the reduction in shipping costs (per car) if I shipped a B2k and the Supernatural above together ...

That backissue says its a twin turbo Supernatural?????

Chris, can you shed some light?

The Original owner of this car also had an 89 dark red B2K convertible and I suspect the author of the story confused the two cars, naming them together as one

The 1993 SuperNatural is a 6.3L (383) car, no turbos, and fiercely fast

Wonderful looking car. Awesome.

I recently found an Aerobody kit on a standard Corvette body. I'm going to widen the rear bumper and side panels and install it on a 1990 ZR1.

Sorry, no scanner right now - but the article is six or seven pages long, chronicling the journey from commissioning the Callaway Texas Twins, to the drive home to Texas There was even a glimpse into the original owner's garage and his 30 car collection

This is a car to own, for sure! And one drive w/ the sweet center-exit exhaust in the background, and you will left wanting more and more time behind the wheel

Thank you for the positive compliments on our Callaway and also for the emails and messages.

As some have mentioned, this car is an amazing car and very rare!

It should also be noted for comparison sake, there is a Callaway SuperNatural coupe currently for sale, offered at $25k. However it does not have the Callaway AeroBody, Center-exit exhaust, Runflat wheels, or other Callaway options that our car has

Thanks again for all the inquiries on our car, it is available and would make a great corner-piece in your collection

Chris:
Congratulations on owning and sharing the provinence of a wonderful and rare Ruby. I had the pleasure of meeting Keith Boi a few years ago, at Carlisle when we must have had over 30 40th Anniversary Ruby's on display, hoods open and it was a wonderful sight. I'll try to PM you the pic's. My 40th 'Vert has 28K and is all original down to the GS-C's. These C-4's are currently under the radar but give it time and we will soon see the prices begin to rise. Good luck on your sale and be patient.
Regards,
Mark

Beautiful car!!! The original owner did forget one option though - V56 luggage rack and not ordering that is a good thing. GLWS.
