As Christmas quickly approaches we’re sure most of you are busy attacking the malls and online stores like we are grabbing sweaters, gifts cards and such. What if shopping was more fun? Say everyone on your list wanted a Corvette and money was no option? Fact: Corvette shopping is way more fun than regular shopping. To support this we made a list of significant cars and checked it twice. You can check it out too after the break.
Here are the 12 (ok, technically it’s 14) Corvettes we’d like Santa to park under the tree this year. They range from the ultra-rare to all-out race cars. Some make the list purely due to their value. Others due to their head-turning factor. All are rare and prized to collectors. And, as to be expected, almost all of them are well beyond our Christmas budget.
So, on now to our list of the 12 Corvettes of Christmas. You’ll have to provide the signing as we’re pretty sure we’d damage the speakers on your computer if we sang.
- 1953 VIN 003
The first production Corvette. Enough said.
- 1955, 1956, and 1957 VINs 001
Probably the most significant VIN 001 collection out there. A bid just shy of $3,000,000 couldn’t buy them.
- First Fuelie
The first fuel injected Corvette. Wonder if that technology will ever catch on?
- The Scaglietti Corvettes
Corvette + Carol Shelby = awesome
- Gulf One
What’s better than a ’63 Z06 couple? A dominant racing ’63 Z06 coupe.
- 1967 435hp Convertible: At the top of any Corvette must-have list. We’ll take ours in Sunfire Yellow with black interior and soft top.
- Any L88
If you missed the L88 invasion at Bloomington Gold a couple years ago, you missed something very special.
- 1st Gen ZR-1
Vary rare and very expensive. We’ll take one from any year 1970-1972. We’re not picky.
- 1971 ZR2
A low production, factory built big block racecar? Yes, please.
- 1995 ZR-1
The 2nd generation of ZR-1’s farewell. 405hp. Buy one now before they get really expensive.
- 2004 Commemorative Edition Z06
A fitting salute to success at Lemans.
- C6 ZR1
638hp. 205mph. $120k. Find another car that’ll do that.
So those are the picks on our Christmas list. We know we left some good ones out which will probably land us on the naughty list.
