SHOOTOUT: PHASE III GT CORVETTE VS. FERRARI 250 GTO!

SHOOTOUT: PHASE III GT CORVETTE VS. FERRARI GTO!
With a Ferrari 250 GTO expected to cross the block in the rarified air neighborhood of $50 mil this month in Monterey, Joel Rosen thinks it might be a good time to take a closer look at Long Island’s answer to Modena’s prestigious Prancing Horse. Actually the comparison makes more sense than the 1964 Pontiac GTO vs Ferrari GTO that Car and Driver hyped. At first glance it’s rather obvious where Joel Rosen got the idea to build a very limited production Baldwin-Motion Phase III GT Corvette. A cl...

’73 CHEVELLE L-88: LAST BALDWIN-MOTION SS-427!

The last Baldwin-Motion Chevelle SS built, powered by a full-tilt 427 L-88 engine, was not shy about ‘broadcasting’ its potent powertrain. The last Baldwin-Motion Chevelle, a $12, 030.24, L-88-powered ‘73 Phase III SS built shortly before Baldwin Chevrolet changed hands, was a tire-frying "billboard" for a program that would last just one more year. Built for Charles Crane in Ft. Lee, New Jersey, it was driven daily and street raced until he sold it in 1980. With its outrageous lettering and ra...

He’s shown with Joel Rosen, left, at the New York Auto Show introduction of the prototype Phase III GT. ...
