Ed Parker's Stock 1977 Chevette Sandpiper

Formerly owned by Jeff Stork

Puff is arguably the finest surving and most celebrated Chevette Sandpiper in existance. He is an ultra rare Sandpiper edition, one of only about 2,000 produced. The Sandpiper featured a unique Cream Gold exterior color (the exact same color as 1977 Cadillac Naples Yellow) with a totally unique yellow interior featuring tri-toned reef cloth seats of yellow, cream and gold. The entire interior is color matched in yellow, including headliner, carpets, door trim, and even seatbelts. It's a wild explosion of 70's color.

Puff has led a charmed life. He was purchased new at Lange and Runkel Chevrolet of Redlands, CA on 10/15/76 by Mrs. Lillian Paul of Yucaipa. She loved Puff and kept him garaged with his seats wrapped in plastic. When she stopped driving, her daughter Arlene Hudson of Yosemite took the car because she liked it so much. He remained garaged and low mileage.

Jeff acquired the car from Mrs. Hudson in the summer of 2000 with just over 48,000 miles. He gave him a thorough detailing and new whitewall radials and did brakes and exhaust work. He is head and shoulders above any other Chevette Jeff had ever seen. Ed aquired the car from Jeff in 2004.

Puff is a lordly little car. He is in superior original condition and draws tons of attention. He never fails to win an award whenever he is shown. In addition, he and Jeff have been on CNN together discussing the phenomenon of the Nerd Car. The proudest moment was Good Friday, 2002, when they were featured on the Lifestyle section of USA Today. The Nerd Car is hot, and Puff is the Class President.

He's also extrememly loaded, even for a Chevette. Sandpiper Decor, Custom Exterior, Bumper Rub Strips, Body Side Moldings, Swing Out Windows, 1.6 Liter, Air Conditioning, Automatic, AM/FM Radio, Rear Seat Speaker, Deluxe Belts, and Whitewall Radials with Trim Rings. And he's 100% stock and untouched. Original manuals and warranty.

"Puff" was Jeff's second Sandpiper having owned one for his first car(photo below).


One Sandpiper is rare enough, but TWO! Ed's pair of Pipers. One all stock, formerly Jeff Stork's Puff, the other the lethal V8 packin' bird. Only one problem... which one do you drive?
