Restored to the way it ran at Sebring in 1956, rare Arctic Blue 265/240 Corvette
is a real time machine.
In 1956, five Corvettes were entered at Sebring and rare Corvette collector Phil Schwartz owns the only one entered privately. The other four were official Chevrolet factory racecars driven by high-profile drivers. Sponsored by Doane Chevrolet, the #3 Corvette was driven from the Chicago area to Sebring (FL), raced and then driven back to Illinois. While this racer’s chassis has a 1955 VIN#, it was originally factory-fitted with a prototype 1956 body. The Corvette received its first major body redesign in 1956.
