[VIDEO] Friday’s Featured Corvettes: Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Edition

by Keith Cornett on March 28, 2008

1965 Corvette on the block at Barrett-Jackson's Palm Beach Collector Car Auction

Instead of listing Corvettes that are for sale like I usually like to do on Fridays, I thought I would show you two Corvettes that sold last night at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach, Florida. We always hear about the big blocks and the rare or special edition Corvettes at Barrett-Jackson, but how do the small blocks fare on the first and traditionally “bargain” night of the auction? Pretty damn good actually…

Lot #47: 1965 Corvette Convertible

This Corvette features a 327 ci 350 hp engine coupled to a 4-speed manual transmission. In the video you will see the seller prepared a display board showing 8×10 photos of the various engine, transmission and trim codes showing the Corvette to be a matching numbers car. The Corvette sold for $63,000 and was the highest priced Corvette for the 1st night in Palm Beach.


Lot #64: 1964 Corvette Coupe

Our second Corvette is another interesting small block example. This 1964 Corvette Coupe is all about comfort. The car features a 327 ci 300 hp base engine with a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission, factory air conditioning, power steering and power brakes. The Riverside Red exterior was described as “better than new”. The Corvette sold for $54,000.
