One of the featured cars in Russo and Steele’s upcoming Monterey auction (August 16-18) is a 1964 fuel injected Corvette Supernova. An early Corvette would be interesting enough, but this one was actually raced in the SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) 1972 season by national B production champion Bill Jobe, taking several races.

Russo and Steele say it’s been in storage for several years and is still in “as raced” condition. They add that it “still has the Traco Engineering prepared engine & Corvette Ramjet fuel injection it raced with. It retains the original close ratio transmission, transistor ignition, dash cluster, door panels and shifter. It has full J-56 brake equipment, booster, & all Guldstrand suspension components. It is complete with four rare and ORIGINAL 8" Minilite wheels. This is an Ermine White with red interior 375 hp fuel injected Corvette with title with vin/trim tags in place.”

Sweet. The engine’s been recently refreshed and it’s all ready to compete in vintage races. For someone who’d like to get into racing without first dealing with a restoration project, this sounds fantastic. A quick Google search failed to turn up anything similar. Any bets on how much it will go for?
