Baldwin-Motion Corvette at Eyes on Design Show

Article contributed by Steve Burns

A couple weeks back we stumbled across a rare Baldwin-Motion Corvette for sale on eBay. On Father’s Day we took Dad to the 24th annual Eyes on Design Car Show which is held on the scenic grounds of the Edsel and Eleanor Ford house in Grosse Pointe Shore, MI. Being an invitation-only all-car show, we didn’t expect to see but just a couple of nice Corvettes in attendance. Imagine our surprise when we noticed this yellow 1970 Baldwin-Motion Phase III Corvette tucked in with a group of Yenko, Nickey, and Baldwin-Motion cars. Check out some pics of this rare bird after the jump.
