** Our 1995 Z28 Camaro Convertible, original family survivor, belonged to NASA Astronaut Legend Admiral Alan Shepard, Mercury 7 astronaut, the first U.S. astronaut in space, and Apollo 14 astronaut. During the Apollo 14 mission, Shepard made history stepping foot on the moon and taking his passion for the game of golf by hitting a golf ball on the moon!

The Admiral was a true sports car fan owning ten Corvettes over his lifetime and all were from the famed *Rathmann Chevrolet in Melbourne Florida which was the same dealership that offered Shepard and other astronauts new Corvettes. Enjoying retirement in California, he needed more room for his and his wife’s golf clubs so once again he contacted his friend and dealership owner, Jim Rathmann. Mr. Rathmann assisted in the order and to make it more convenient for pickup, he arranged for Shepard to take delivery of his new car @ Tipton Chevrolet in Hollister California.

Our Astronaut Car is equipped as follows:

1995 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro Convertible, quasar blue exterior / beige custom leather interior / beige convertible top, 5.7 Aluminum Head LT1 275 HP V8, 4L60E auto trans, ps, pdb, tilt, tach, clock, a/c, pl, cruise control, power mirrors, 245x50x16 radials on 16x8 factory alloys, performance axel, fog lamps, keyless entry, remote trunk release, leather wrapped steering wheel, front bucket seats, folding rear seat, color keyed carpet mats, molded convertible cover with bag and more.

Normal maintenance and upgrades include: Panasonic AM/FM/CD stereo installed when factory unit died, new Falken 245x50x16 radials, new Interstate battery and mechanical servicing including new brakes.

The Admiral’s Car is well documented with its original window sticker, owner’s manual, sales documents, 68k miles, clean Carfax, clean TX title showing 1 family owner and family supplied photo of the Admiral, his wife and the car. It still wears its original issue California license plate with original owner added Pebble Beach License plate frame.

Fortunately, it has always been garaged and gently driven. It is as nice and original as the photos show inside, outside, and underneath including a small dent in the rear muffler and burn in the carpet from the Admiral’s occasional celebratory cigar. Overall paint is excellent w a few hardly noticeable spider cracks on the front and rear bumpers but they still have the same high gloss as rest of the car.

In 2022 we were fortunate to have been invited to be one of the lead vehicles at the NASA Houston employee only parade and car show.

Last year, May 2023, our Astronaut Car was on display at Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance collector boat and car show in Seabrook TX where it won The Mayor’s Choice Award.

It all started with NASA, but the new “Space Cowboys” are Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Robert Bigelow. To celebrate today’s excitement for space exploration, our Astronaut Car has been on a promotional tour which includes being on display at various facilities, auto shows, magazines and online.

The Admiral’s Z28 Convertible is truly 1 of 1. It is the nicest survivor Astronaut Car, belonging to the first of the Mercury 7 astronauts, in existence and its documented ownership, make it one of the most collectable vehicle artifacts in early Aerospace history.

His 1968 Corvette sold for $308k at Barrett-Jackson in 2022.

The Admiral’s Camaro is offered for sale for $98,000 obo stock # 20922.

We will donate 5% of sales price towards The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation which Admiral Shepard founded with the other Mercury 7 Astronauts. The Shepard Family continues to support ASF and is thrilled the sale of this car will carry on the legacy of Admiral Shepard and his commitment to ASF.
