Barrett-Jackson’s Corvette Sales Total $2.47 Million at 2011 Palm Beach Auction

Barrett-Jackson's Corvette Sales Total $2.47 Million at 2011 Palm Beach Auction

Barrett Jackson held their annual Palm Beach collector car auction last weekend. The three-day auction featured something for everyone as 50+ Corvettes ranging from 1954 through 2012 were offered. The biggest surprise was the inclusion of Chevy’s new 2012 Centennial Edition which was the second-highest sale of the entire auction.

The Palm Beach auction was a bit different than Barrett-Jackson’s traditional “No Reserve” auctions as they allowed cars to be listed with a “Reserve”, which means the owner set’s the minimum amount he would sell the car for. Of the 52 Corvettes that went up on the block, 18 had a reserve listed and of those, only 4 sold. Corvette sales for the three day auction totaled $2.47 million. That’s about equal to 2010′s Palm Beach results of $2.9 million from the sale of 48 Corvettes (and 1 boat).

Topping the list of Corvettes was the auction for the new 2012 Centennial Corvette Z06 which sold to Chevy dealer and NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick for $175,000. The sale was for the 100th 2012 Z06 in the new Centennial Edition appearance package. Representing Chevy was Performance Cars Marketing Manager John Fitzpatrick who rattled off a nice list of goodies that came with the auction which included the Engine Build Experience and a VIP weekend at Petit Le Mans.

Coming in second in Corvette sales with a selling price of $99,000 was one of the three Corvettes we previewed last week. Lot #649.2 was a 1967 Corvette Roadster powered by a 427/400 hp with factory air. This sale was interesting for a number of reasons, mostly because the owner indicated that the L68 was restamped to match the VIN. This was also one of the 4 Corvettes sold with a reserve price.

Rounding out our top 3 for Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach was Lot #650, a 1966 Corvette Roadster powered by a numbers matching 427/390 L36 V8 and factory air. The Nassau Blue roadster was highly optioned with factory air conditioning, knock-off wheels, side pipes, tilt/telescopic column with teak wheel, head rests, hardtop, power steering, power brakes and power antenna. Documentation includes copy of original MSO, Bill of Sale and Protect-O-Plate.
