Auction Results: Barrett-Jackson’s Corvette Sales Top $9 Million

by Keith Cornett on February 1, 2010

1958 Silver Blue Corvette sold at 2010's Barrett-Jackson Auction for $220,000

Barrett-Jackson’s Collector Car Auction just wrapped up another successful Scottsdale auction and Corvette sales remain strong. We counted 112 Corvettes that crossed the block and with the 10% commission added, sales totaled $9.19 million. That’s very comparable to 2009′s $9.8 million in sales.

The top seller for Corvettes was a modern restoration of a 1958 Silver Blue Corvette which sold for $220,000. Although equipped with a newer model GM Ram Jet 350 cubic inch V8, Tremec 5-Speed and disc brakes, the seller’s description says this classic straight-axle is no resto-mod. The Corvette underwent a $200,000 frame-off restoration and for both drivability and preservation, the original motor and transmission was removed and stored. Now with just 900 miles on the clock since restoration, the very correct-appearing Corvette is ready for show and go.

We already mentioned the 2008 Corvette Z06 “427″ Edition that was sold for $200,000 to benefit the Red Cross’s Haitian relief efforts. Actually, this car tied the top-selling 1958 Corvette with a hammer price of $200,000. Due to its charity status, it was sold without commission.

Rounding out the top three was a 1966 Corvette convertible resto-mod that sold for $198,000. Absolutely stunning in its Platinum Pearl Metallic paint, this Sting Ray is powered by a brand new GM LS3 Cammer engine producing over 500 horsepower. Coupled to the LS3 is a Tremec 5-Speed. C6 Z06 brakes and 18″/19″ chrome spider wheels complete the resto-mod look.

GM was back in Scottsdale this year with a number of Corvettes from its personal collection including that #427 2008 Corvette Z06 427. A 1989 preproduction Corvette ZR-1 used for media and press events sold for $55,000 and the 2009 Competition Sport #2 Coupe that provided us with a hot lap at last year’s 12 Hours of Sebring brought in $60,500.
