Friend and CorvetteBlogger sponsor Terry Michaelis of Proteam Corvette sent us this great photo today of these two GM Style Corvettes. Both of these unique midyears are new editions to his collection which is billed as the largest in the world. Terry picked up the “Ozzie Olson” 1964 Corvette Coupe on the right at the RM Auction in Fort Lauderdale in March for a cool $160,000. Then in mid-May he bought one of the top 10 collectible Corvettes available – Harley Earl’s personal 1963 Corvette Roadster – which he paid $925,000 at the Mecum Spring Classic auction last month.
GM Style Corvettes are those that were generally pulled off the production line and sent to Detroit where they were assigned Shop Order numbers. These Corvettes would then undergo a host of interior and exterior design changes as Chevrolet looked to improve and refine the looks, comfort and usability of the two-seat sports car.
As for the new Harley Earl Corvette, Proteam posted a batch of photos showing many of the unique features of S.O. 10323:
