Corvette Auction: GM to Sell Part of Heritage Collection

by Keith Cornett on December 22, 2008

Corvettes at GM's Heritage Center Museum

Looking to make some quick cash, GM announced a corporate garage sale where they’ll be selling off approximately 250 of the slightly less important and more recent collectibles from the Heritage Collection – the automaker’s corporate museum. The collection will be offered over several auctions starting with Barrett-Jackson’s Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in mid-January. A non-official list of cars is circulating with 30+ Corvettes on it including several 1989 Corvette ZR-1s and a bevy of Pace Cars.

GM hasn’t finalized the list of vehicles to be sold, and Tom Freiman, manager of the Heritage Center calls the list of vehicles that is circulating the internet as “in-accurate”. GM is not expected to sell any car that is one of a kind or is a milestone, so a couple of the early ZR-1s might not be included. Here is the non-official list of Corvettes:

  • 1989 Corvette DR-1
  • 1989 Corvette Snake Skinner
  • 1989 Corvette Splash
  • 1989 Corvette ZR-1
  • 1989 Corvette ZR-1 (Dark Red)
  • 1989 Corvette ZR-2 Big Doggie
  • 1990 Corvette Right Hand Steer
  • 1990 Corvette ZR-1 Active
  • 1991 Corvette Convertible
  • 1992 Corvette ZR-1 First Built (Red)
  • 1993 Corvette LT-1 Spyder
  • 1994 Corvette (Teal)
  • 1994 Corvette HO
  • 1997 Corvette Alpha Build
  • 1997 Corvette Beta Build
  • 1997 Corvette Tiger Shark
  • 1998 Corvette First Built
  • 1998 Corvette X-plorers
  • 1999 Corvette C5R Show Car
  • 1999 Corvette Shark
  • 2000 Corvette Z06 Race
  • 2003 Corvette Lemans Pace #3
  • 2004 Corvette Indy Pace
  • 2005 Corvette Atlantic
  • 2005 Corvette Pacific
  • 2007 Corvette Z06 First Built (Red)
  • 2007 Corvette Indy Pace Car (Copper)
  • 2008 Corvette Indy Pace Car (Black)
  • Corvette C5 Display Chassis
  • Corvette Purple Smash
  • Corvette Racing Boat
  • Corvette Trailer
  • Corvette ZR1 Rolling Chassis
  • Corvette ZR 1 Snake Skinner

GM has been thinning out its Heritage Collection over the last few years and most recently we watched the sale of several Corvette Pace Cars at October’s Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction. In additon to January’s Scottsdale auction, some of the GM collection will be sold at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction in April 2009.
