Why Do Dealers Insist on Defacing Corvettes

RM Auctions held their Collector Cars of Fort Lauderdale event last weekend which featured 36 Corvettes. Auction results show 23 of the 36 Corvettes were sold for a sales success rate of 64% and total sales topped $1,186,700. Many of the Corvettes came from the estate of collector John O’Quinn and those were sold without reserve.

Leading the sales for Corvettes was the 1955 Gypsy Red “Bubble Top” Corvette roadster which sold for $140,250. Second was the 1964 Corvette Coupe designed by Bill Mitchell for Ozzie Olson. The Pearlescent Blue Coupe fetched $116,600. Rounding out the top three was a red 1960 Corvette Fuelie roadster which sold for $112,750.

There were some bargains at the auction too. A red 1978 Corvette T-Top Coupe was sold for $5,775 and a 1985 Corvette Coupe changed hands for $8,800.
