Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to offer for sale for the
first time since 2015 this one of a kind 1974 Chevrolet Corvette
Stingray. This is the well-known Star Wars Vette from years ago. It

Manual gear box. The car has 29352 miles showing on the Odometer.
Now that said go over this amazing work of art. Back in 1977, a
young filmmaker named George Lucas changed pop culture forever with
the release of the first Star Wars movie. That film not only
ushered in cool special effects, it set the standard (in the
immortal words of Spaceball's Mel Brooks) for movie merchandising
and soon Star Wars branded toys and accessories were everywhere.
Obviously, the first Star Wars movie made an impact on the world,
former owner, and creator of this special 1974 Corvette. The car
showcases many scenes from the movie with hand airbrushed murals
painted on every body panel. The Corvette's body panels were hand
airbrushed by the renown Uniontown, PA resident Rusty Fecek who
spent over 1,000 hours on the car. The Corvette features 20 coats
of hand-rubbed lacquer and the richly covered murals have held up
well over the last 35 years. Rusty showed the car back in the day
(see the newspaper article attached) and it earned awards and
praise where he went with it. After he passed away, the car went to
his daughter's garage where it was stored for 12-15 years before
changing hands again. The autobody repairman combined his art and
body work talents to create the car that features purple and silver
as the primary showing colors and red, blue, and yellow tones.
Rusty estimates that there is around 80 coats of paint on this
master piece. The paint job alone was estimated at $10,000 in 1977.
Rusty won several awards with the car including first in his class,
most popular car with 90% average, and most outstanding use of
color and paint. Rusty's Life was lived from March 8, 1944 -
November 28, 2017. He died at the age of 73. He left behind this
masterpiece to show his passion for Art and automobiles. This 1974
