Default Baldwin Corvette Canada

Seems like this is the place on this site where the Canadians hang out, anyone know the Corvette on the cover of this magazine? I believe it may have been in the Toronto area?

Give us more info. WHY do you think it was in the Toronto area? Do you have any pics of the car in Toronto?

Keep in mind this was 45 years ago but I recall reading the article and thinking this car was close to me as I grew up in Etobicoke. The unusual headlights are what I really remember.

First picture is OP link of 01/75 Chevy Action Magazine cover w/ modified '71? 'Vette Roadster w/ Hdtop.
2'nd pic a '69? Motion Coupe inside Lance Hill's Racing Engines Toronto shop back in the day.
Not sure what year Lance's pic is from but this or other Motion 'Vettes he had around could be what you're remembering?
Otherwise, Bob MacDonald Chevy Halifax was Motion connected also wasn't there a Motion 'Vette somewhere out Kingston way?

Pete,

Thanks for your reply.
I distinctly remember those very unusual headlights on the car on the front cover.
I will have to see if the article is posted on the internet anywhere however it is probably like looking for a needle in a haystack!

Hope the link works?

Owner Mike Tschilas of Toronto, anyone know the guy?

Well, I asked you a few posts back to give us more info. You didn't have any I guess.

Lance will probably back this up. The Orange Vette used to be parked on Jane St on the west side south of what is now Black creek Dr. In a gas station (Gulf), so that was 2 minutes from Harveys....

If the Hugger Orange Vette was a conv it was a 67 435 originally black and delivered to Belmont (then possible dealer trade to Golden Mile). I understand it was on a used car lot near Jane and 401 a while after a short, rough early life

LT1vette sorry I am not trying to be elusive.
This car has been in my mind since I read about it in 1975 in the magazine. I've been passionate about Corvettes since I was a young boy when a neighbor bought one new in 1975.
My Dad would let me buy car magazines when we went to the convenience store together.
Baldwin Motion cars got a lot of hype in the magazines back then. When I read about this car and it was in TORONTO not far from where I lived I always hoped to one day see it in person but that has yet to happen.
It would have been a very expensive car back in the day and I wonder what ever happen to it?
I know there are some serious muscle car enthusiasts from Toronto on this site so I was curious if anyone knew the car and had any stories about it.
