2008 Barrett-Jackson Corvette Auction Preview

by Keith Cornett on January 10, 2008

1971 Corvette ZR2 Coupe

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”! No, I’m not still singing Christmas carols, but when the Barrett-Jackson auction rolls around every year, I do get a bit giddy like a kid around Christmas time. Yes, it’s that time of year where chrome, corporate jets, unlimited checkbooks, and gavel to gavel television coverage converge on Scottsdale Arizona for what has become the Super Bowl of automotive auctions. The 37th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction gets under way next week with the first car hitting the block on Tuesday.

Barrett-Jackson announced last year that they would be bringing down the total number of cars in the 2008 Auction from 1,200 to around 1,000. Corvettes are still well represented with 106 currently on the docket, but this is a significant decline from last year’s total of 142 Corvettes that were sold in Scottsdale. What’s also interesting about this list is that the venerable auction favorite, the 1967 Corvette will only be making 7 appearances whereas last year there was over 20 1967 Corvettes that sold.

We’ll be watching a number of cars including the 1963 Rondine Corvette concept, a 1 of 12 1971 ZR2 Corvette Coupe and of course the 2009 Corvette ZR1. We’ll also be watching lot number 1327 closely as there is a whisper campaign underway that this Corvette is not what it seems. We’ll have more on that later.

The full list of Corvettes currently planned for Barrett-Jackson is after the jump. We’ve broken it down so you can see which day the Corvette will be sold. As always, check back throughout the week as we’ll have coverage and videos of selected Corvettes that were sold.
