Fans at Lambeau Field on Thursday for the last preseason game had the chance to go back in time 50 years to when the Green Bay Packers won the first Superbowl.

The 1967 Corvette that Bart Starr received as the MVP of the game was on display for fans to check out.

The car is now owned by Michael Anderson, who lives in Minnesota, but drove the classic car to Lambeau at the request of the Rawhide Boys Ranch.

"It was just something I had to do, bring the car back to Green Bay, show the car, let people know the car still exists yet," said Anderson.

He bought the car from a woman in 1994. At the time, the woman told him that it was Starr's Superbowl MVP car, but it wasn't until Anderson took out the fuel tank that he found concrete proof.

"I removed the gas tank sticker and it was there, fragile, but his name was on the tank sticker," said Anderson. "It was pretty cool to find that."

Starr and his wife Cherry have long been supporters of the Rawhide Boys Ranch, a non-profit that serves as an alternative to juvenile corrections.

"He is a very giving man and did a lot for the ranch and stuff like that back in the day, just a great guy," said Anderson.

The rare 1967 Corvette is for sale. Anderson says he is currently entertaining a few offers right now. He hopes to find someone in Green Bay to take it home.
