[VIDEO] Astronaut Gus Grissom's 1967 Corvette Lands in Wilmington, NC

For Wilmington, N.C., auto dealer Don Latham, the 1967 Corvette Sting Ray he bought at a Florida auction last week has the right stuff.

You see, he bought one of the Corvettes owned by the “Mercury Seven,” the men chosen by NASA in April 1959 to lead America into the Space Age.

All seven of the astronauts had a Corvette, and this one belonged to Virgil “Gus” Grissom, who was one of the three astronauts who died on the launch pad aboard Apollo 1 on Jan. 27, 1967.

The driver of this ’69 Corvette Stingray is having some serious fun trying to get that American V8 power some traction during an autocross event held on an ice track.

While Corvette Racing has been planning on running the 83rd annual 24 Hours of Le Mans as part of its 2015 campaign, the race requires an invitation from the ACO. Last week the field was announced and the factory-backed race team did indeed receive two of the 21 at-large invitations available for the race at Circuit de la Sarthe in France this June.

The twin Velocity Yellow C7.Rs will join seven other cars to round out the GTE-Pro class which will feature a total of nine entries.
