Owners form special bonds with cars, it’s something every enthusiast can relate to. That’s no different for Peter Geiger.
Geiger forged a bond with his brother Robert’s 1966 Corvette convertible. For him, it was almost like his first car—he cleaned it and helped maintain the car with his brother.
Sadly, Robert passed away tragically in 1987 and the Geiger family is determined to locate his old car, and along with the National Corvette Museum, we’d like to try and help.
“(Robert) had a 1966 Convertible with a lot of modifications on the body,” Peter said. “The back was customized with a tail that came up and the rear lights were flat rectangles. The wheel wells were flared and the hood also had a custom scoop. The paint was brown with pearl flip-flop over the entire car. Very ugly – looked like eight different colors at once.”
It is a unique car indeed. Robert Geiger owned the car until 1975. After that, it vanished off of the radar. Peter says the car was last registered in the state of New York.
“The ’66 is so special to me because I cleaned it and fell in love with Corvettes at that point,” stated Peter. “So it’s like my first car and a part of him.”
The family yearns to have the car back in their possession and says any help, tips or leads would be appreciated. To make matters more difficult, the only picture of the car is what’s posted here. The family does not know the VIN, either.
