Keith Richard Litavsky survived an incredible ordeal over in Vietnam during the war and as a result, returned home with two Purple Hearts.

After he returned home, he purchased a Marina Blue 1967 Corvette and barely drove it up until his death in 1993 caused by cancer as a result of exposure to Agent Orange.

His son, Matt Litavsky only drove it once putting 15 miles on the odometer.  Total accumulate miles since it was originally purchased by his dad:  only 8,553 miles!

Matt recently sold his dad’s Corvette at the Mecum Classic Car Auction in Indianapolis this past weekend and the gavel fell at an astounding $675,000!  Given the car’s unrestored originality, and incredibly low miles, it’s not surprising that the Corvette sold for this amount.

It happens to be one of the most original 427/435 HP 1967 Corvettes that you’ll ever find and came fully documented with the original window sticker, car shipper, Protect-O-Plate, radio tag, owner’s manual, and tank sticker.

The winning bidder, Gary Runyon of Carmel, California reassured Litavsky, that his father’s Corvette would be kept in good hands and that he was more than welcome to come and visit the car any time he wanted.

Below is a video by Mecum Auctions showing the auction of this special Corvette:
