It might not be the most beautiful Corvette ever, but it sure looks like the most edible.

This C3 Corvette covered with pepperoni pizza (well, actually just decals) was one of the most popular photo ops during the 31st annual International Pizza Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center.


The last time we saw the 1954 Pizza Man Corvette racer it was crossing Mecum’s red carpet in St. Charles, Illinois in October of 2012. Back then it was a no sale after a high bid of $120,000. Recently it showed up on eBay still for sale. The “World’s Fastest Six Cylinder Corvette” beat up on the competition from 1962 to 1971 with Earl Britt behind the wheel.

The Pizza Man Ready to Deliver at Mecum St. Charles

What’s been called the “World’s Fastest Six Cylinder Corvette” will be crossing the block next weekend at Mecum’s annual Fall Premier auction in St. Charles, IL. This iconic drag racer beat up on the competition from 1962 – 1971 with Earl Britt behind the wheel. Britt operated Earl’s Pizza Palace in Sioux Falls, South Dakota when not setting ET records and winning multiple NHRA championships.
