…the one closest to his heart is the 1967 Chevrolet Corvette. It’s been elegantly finished in Goodwood-green and is powered by a 327 cubic-inch V8 guzzler that’s capable of churning out 350-horsepower. It also gets a rear-axle ratio. The convertible was a wedding gift to Joe Biden from his father in the August of 1967 and still sits in his garage. Apart from the gorgeous vintage charm and the mighty machine under the hood, it’s also a remarkable and sentimental part of Biden’s life.

A deeper dig into Biden’s past tells us that automobiles have played a major role in his upbringing. Biden’s father managed car dealerships in Delaware for 34 years, and this mainly included Chrysler cars while also running operations for Ford for a brief period. His father let him drive some of the models in his garage, and this is when he developed a taste for torque. His first car was a 1951 Studebaker. We’re not sure whether it’s still around, but it was called the ‘Bullet-Nose car’ in his hay days due to its unique grille design. It was also a successful Post-War purchase for buyers.
