It should be easy enough to verify this car.


Projected sales at $12,900. were ten per year (about a 90 day production time). Only 10 Phase III GT's were actually sold between '69 & '71. Rosen still retains the original VIN numbers of all Motion Corvettes. It is thought only 3 GT's currently exist.

That am NOT a boner-fide Motion car...I see too many things that support my swag. See iffin ya'll can see what I can...and what I don't see, that would confirm my suspicion.
Rosen is a d@*k, but if he saw the car in person, he would have told them if he had built it or not. He just wouldn't authenticate it without some $$$.

My guess is it was built from some Motion parts, which a lot of guys did. Most folks back then couldn't afford the cost of a new 'Vette AND the cost of Motion mods. So...they bought the parts, and did it themselves(or had it done).
Matter of fact...there is a guy in our local club that has one that was built like that. Rosen HAS authenticated that one, because he does remember the car as being built by another shop, from his parts.

Rosen used to be a stand-up guy, but he's had so many inquiries from people wanting him to say their cars were official Motion cars, he just doesn't want to fool with it anymore...for free. I kinda see where he's coming from...

Like the L88s, there are more "real" Motion cars out there now than were ever built to start with!

Hey just because I post up this stuff doesn't mean I believe it... I post most of them to spark interest and comments.

This vette in all likelyhood is not a Baldwin Motion Car. None the less it does have some potential to be a good clone or at least a sharp eye catching vette.

I view items on EBAY, CRAIGS LIST, TRADER MAGAZINE, etc. daily and I take all of them with a grain of salt.

My .02 on this car is that if the seller actually has a remote thought this is a true BALDWIN MOTION CAR then it would'nt be on EBAY. He would have called PRO TEAM or any of the other large Hustle A Buck, Vette Dealers and it would have sold.

All that said I still think it would be a great project car and I wish I were closer to check it over. (The old girl still deserves some respect.)

That's a puny front sway bar for a performance car like a Motion Phase III. Also, these were built as 1/4 mile race cars - notice the A/C housing? Confused
 
A recent issue of CF has 3 existing motion C3s written up. For those sleuths that want to dig more, that may be a good resource....
 
Also, here's a good article on a 69 MIII:

There is a difference between "Baldwin/Motion", and "Motion" cars. Lot of folks get the two confused. The Baldwin/Motion cars were ordered new thru Baldwin Chevrolet, then Rosen did his magic to them, and sent them back to Baldwin for delivery.

Rosen also did other cars...not just the Baldwin deals. Those are known simply as Motion cars. The thing am, the actual Baldwin/Motion cars are the more sought after. That don't make the regular Motion cars any less valuable, tho.
I agree the car should be fixed, and returned to it's former glory. It is a neat looker. Just cringe when someone lists a car like that as something it's prolly not. Just hate to see some goob spend money on a car that turns out to be a local body-shop custom, instead of the real deal.
Ya'll remember what Ben's car used to look like? Everyone thought it was a Motion car, and it may have had some actual Motion stuff, but...was it really one of Rosen's? Who knows?! Does Ben love(or hate) it any less? Prolly not!

Dang, Tux-dude....you like stirrin the pot, eh?

It's going to take $6-7K to get it bought. If you do I volunteer to go down and help you drag it home.

Of course we will have to stop by some friends of mine and visit along the way.....

I am watching it on myebay, lets see where it goes. I am not ruling it out but I was thinking of a nicer car to start with and maybe doing a body kit and a huge engine in an already met bubba Corvette.
 
That would be a huge project, but so cool to have all put together.  I am thinking the perfect color would be either red or white. LOL

Well lets see, Red with white interior would be HOT. The 427 could be sent out for machine work while the body is off with the frame being completed. Perfect Choice could do the interior real nice.

Uh, I almost forgot. We better ask Suzy what to do before you get carried away. She would definately need to add some input here since she would be a stockholder.

It would be a great way to break that new garage in though!
