Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach: Corvette Sales Total $1.98 Million

Barrett-Jackson wrapped up their three day foray to the East Coast as their 10th annual Palm Beach Collector Car Auction concluded on Saturday. The 2012 car list was a bit lighter on Corvettes compared with the auction house’s previous Palm Beach sales, but we still witnessed 39 Corvettes ranging from a 1954 roadster to a 2008 Indy Pace Car replica being sold at no reserve.

Sales of Corvettes at the 2012 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction totaled $1,988,525 which includes the 10% buyers commissions. Our review of the Corvette sales indicates that buyers were very interested in the custom models while sales of original/restored Corvettes appeared to fall right into line as to where the market is today.

Topping the list of Corvettes sold was $203,500 for a 1959 Frost Blue Corvette restomod built on a SRIII chassis with a 350-hp LS1 and modern Corvette suspension and drivetrain. Coming in second was the 1,000 horsepower 1963 Custom mid-engined Corvette V7 twin turbo which found a new home for $94,600 and rounding out the top three was a 2003 Commemorative Edition Z06 Convertible which was sold for $90,200.

As far as our preview of Corvettes which we featured last week, we saw the 1965 396/425 Coupe sell for $77,000. The 1975 convertible equipped with an L82 and a 4-speed transmission was sold for $36,850 and the 1957/2007 Convertibles with matching VINs were sold for $110,000.
