Mecum to Sell Bob McDorman's Corvette Collection

Longtime Chevrolet dealer Bob McDorman is well known for his impressive collection of Corvettes and other significant Chevys. He owns one Corvette of every model year from 1953 through 2010. Also included in his collection are 12 VIN #1 Corvettes and other low serial number Corvettes, as well as several previous celebrity-owned Corvettes from the likes of Burt Reynolds, Apollo 13 astronaut Jim Lovell and my cousin Leanza Cornett, who was Miss America in 1993.

Bob has been steadily pruning his collection over the last few years so it’s not too surprising to see him offer up everything. Although I didn’t see it mentioned, McDorman also owns a ton of Chevrolet memorabilia as well as many NOS parts for Corvettes. Bob’s collection can be viewed online at although as I browse through the list, I see cars there that he has already sold at previous auctions.

The 150 car collection will be auctioned by Mecum on November 5-6, 2010 at the Canal Winchester, Ohio dealership. Look for more details from Mecum Collector Car Auctions as we get closer to that date.

  1. Hate to see Bob’s cars go to the block. This Burt Reynolds car is a very nice driver. I owned it back in 1999-2000.
