The Chitwood Thrill shows used Corvettes since the changed from Ford to Chevy in '55. I also remember the larger scale Chitwood sets, I think only available thru Chevy dealers, similar to the Dodge sets. The car in the auction appears to be a *made up* car to me, as how the 1:1 Chitwood Thrill Show cars were (almost always) solid white with the logo on the door.
yep me 2 @ Jefferson County Fair, Watertown NY in 70's...Pretty sure it was the Chitwoods I saw at Pocono Speedway. Full lap around track(2and 1/2 miles) on 2 wheels. This was late 70s early 80s.
