STARR’S CAR GOES UP FOR AUCTION

Image result for bart starr in 1967


(AP) – On January 15, 1967, Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr
completed 16 of 23 passes for 250 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception as the Packers rolled over the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in
the first AFL-NFL World Championship game (which would later become
known as Super Bowl I). For his efforts, Starr was named the game’s
MVP and was awarded a shiny new 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
convertible (above). That
Corvette is now going up for auction.

The car is documented with a tank sticker that says "Courtesy Delivery –
B. Starr." It presents with its original and patinated Goodwood Green
paint, which was chosen to match the Packers’ home jerseys and is
only slightly touched up. Just 48,000 miles show on the odometer
and the listing says they are believed to be original.
