The month of January means one thing to avid car collectors – the January auctions. Each year thousands of eager buyers and sellers convene on Arizona and Florida to take in all of the intense auction action. Read on to check out our summary of all the major January auctions, when they occur, and how Corvettes they’ve currently got consigned.
As of this writing there are roughly 300 Corvettes up for grabs this month combined across the 5 major sales. We’ve already shown you a few of them including Nolan Adams’ “Stamp Car” at Russo and Steele, 1953 VIN 005 at RM, and the Ungurean Collection at Mecum. We’ll highlight some more of the other significant cars available coming up over the next couple of weeks. They include, L88′s, LS6′s, L71′s, Pilot cars, and racecars.
All 5 of the January events take place within the last 2 weeks of the month. The transactions will begin on January 17th when the first car rolls across the familiar black Barrett-Jackson stage. Auctionmania wraps up on January 28th when Mecum shuts off the lights in Kissimmee. In between Russo and Steele, RM, and Gooding and Company will be selling as many cars as the can.
Below is a brief summary of the all the major January auctions, when they occur, media coverage, and just how many Corvettes you can attempt to buy at each event. Make sure your DVR’s have plenty of room as SPEED and Velocity will have a combined 71 hours of auction coverage.
