Commemorative Apollo Replicas Coming Soon!

In July 1969, Apollo 11 became the first space flight to land humans on the moon, the attainment of a goal set for America by President John F. Kennedy before his death in 1963. "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to Earth."

Commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 program and humanity's first steps on the moon with new replicas from Corgi!

After Apollo 11 successfully completed its mission, NASA shifted efforts to a new objective with Apollo 12: Detailed Lunar Exploration. All three astronauts of the new Apollo 12 crew, Pete Conrad, Richard Gordon Jr., and Alan Bean, had the opportunity through former Indy 500 winner and local GM dealer Jim Rathman to lease brand new Corvettes at a steep discount.

Although the program was available for other astronauts, only the Apollo 12 team requested custom matching "AstroVettes," specially designed by Bean in a gold and black paint scheme with color-coded plaques on the fender to match each member's assigned color.
