15: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette 427
The basic Corvette philosophy is to create a stellar road car, something that you can take out on the weekend and enjoy. But the 427 was designed to take it to an even higher level of performance. The car had a lot of stuff crammed into it to make it a better performer than the stock Corvette. The 427 V8 was the first step in creating something different, and you had body modifications as well.
The Corvette 427 could do a 0-60 time in 5.3 seconds, which is impressive to this day. Although most collectors tend to gravitate toward the Corvette Stingray or the Split Window Corvette, the 427 is a great choice. The sheer design elements of the sports car and the performance improvements make this an exceptional Corvette.
