Starting life as a brand new 1967 427-435HP Tri-Power Coupe, this Corvette was immediately converted to an SCCA A/Production racer by owner Dr. Bill Geen.  Greg Pickett then joined together with Dr. Geen to form the Picket Racing Team.  They raced in numerous events, including Trans Am and IMSA through 1976.  Greg Pickett later went on to enjoy vast racing fame, winning a number of championships in a variety of cars.  This was one of just a few mid-year Corvettes to be successful in racing against cars in the 1970’s and in 1975 qualified 5th in at Brainerd Raceway amongst a field of Porsches, V-12 Jaguars and wide-bodied Greenwood Corvettes.
