Barris “Asteroid” Corvette on Hemmings
60’S CUSTOM BARRIS ASTEROID CORVETTE AT AUCTION
The Hemming Blog has done a really nice article on the restored Barris-built “Asteroid” Corvette. The article it has some great info and photos.
Though “subtle” is not an adjective often associated with George Barris and his automotive creations, his 1963 “Asteroid” Corvette, built for offshore powerboat racer and airline equipment mogul Bob Nordskog, is, perhaps, one of the more understated creations to roll out of Barris’s garage. Designed as a do-it-all racer, show car and street car, the one-of-a-kind Corvette, fresh from a 2013 restoration, is scheduled to cross the auction block early next year.
