1969 Berger Corvette 427 VERY RARE 1 OF 2 - Muscle Cars BlogThis 1969 Berger Corvette 427 is VERY RARE 1 OF 2 only made. You are looking at a very rare piece of automotive history.  This Corvette was produced by Berger Chevrolet in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  It is one of only two corvettes Berger produced.  They are well known for their Camaro’s and to this day are still offering their power pack options which cost between $40,000 and $60,000 for their modifications.  Unlike many high performance chevy dealers Berger is still family owned and still in existence today (unlike Yanko and many others).

This corvette has a 427 tri-power which started as a 400 horse car and as far as we know, they modified to at least 450 horse.  It is a very high option car, it has both tops.  It also has the original build sheet and window sticker.  The only option that was changed on the car is the deluxe wheels that is on the tank sticker to the rally wheels which I think most would agree look better on the car.

We are not sure if Berger changed them or a past owner did.  The car also has power windows, power brakes, power steering, tilt and tele, head restraints, custom shoulder belts, pozi traction, 331 ratio rear, turbo 400 transmission (if you research Berger and their are many articles on the internet including one from AutoTrader that gives the full history of Berger Chev you will find out that the turbo 400 was their trans of choice).  The car also has tinted glass, red striped tires, front fender louver trim, F41 suspension and speed warning indicator.  The car is in amazing condition as you can see from the pictures.  This car was inspected by an NCRS judge when the owner first purchased it.  It became a subject on the super car registry and he was asked if he would allow them to send one of their top judges down to authenticate the car and they could find no issue that this was not the real deal.  To the corvette purist this is probably not a car for you.  But, for the rest of the car collector community, this is a piece of automotive history.
