STRANGE AUTO STORIES - IDENTICAL GOLD 1964 CORVETTES DEVELOPED JUST FOR APPOLLO ASTRONAUTS - ASTROVETTES !

The paint job on those Apollo 12 "AstroVettes" was conceived by Tucker designer Alex Tremulis. He drew them up to be like the 1964 version of his record-setting Triumph Gyronaut from 1964 with a gold/black theme and red, white and blue logos. The Gyronaut was first painted to look like the 2-wheeled little brother to the Summers Brothers' Goldenrod streamliner. The idea was to have both the world's fastest car and world's fastest motorcycle matching colors.

Astronaut Alan Bean picked a combination of the three designs, including the logo, and had it painted up by Indy 500 winner and Chevrolet dealer Jim Rathmann. Looking back, Bean wished he had thought of using Navy Blue instead of the black, to match their service in the Navy.

There are still the two other AstroVettes out there somewhere waiting to be found for you Corvette treasure hunters, both identical to Alan Bean's car.
