Bart Starr’s 1967 Corvette on Display in Green Bay

Bart Starr’s legendary career featured many thrilling game winning drives, yet it’s quite possible that his most memorable “drive” came courtesy of the Chevrolet Motor Division on Friday, Feb. 3, 1967. On that cold winter day in New York City, SPORT Magazine presented Starr with the keys to a brand new 1967 Corvette Sting Ray as his reward for being named the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl I. Having spent most of the last 51 years far from the public eye, this iconic piece of Packers’ history has returned home to Green Bay and is now on display at The Automobile Gallery courtesy of new owner Steve Altieri. Gallery Founder Red Lewis is excited to share this rare jewel with fans. Chevrolet’s Corvette plant in St. Louis dressed Bart’s beauty in Goodwood Green to emulate the Packers’ home jerseys and completed the package with a black interior and black convertible top. Today, it remains in original condition wearing every scar, chip and crack from each of its 48,000 miles traveled during the past half-century. Just as Bart Starr’s performance in Super Bowl I made history, his 1967 Corvette Sting Ray preserves it. The Automobile Gallery is located at 400 South Adams St. in downtown Green Bay.
