Baseball fans, take note.
Yount, of course, spent his entire 20-year career with the Milwaukee Brewers as a shortstop and center fielder, winning MVP awards in 1982 and 1989, collecting more than 3,000 hits in his career, and earning election to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999.
While 26 bids have already been placed on Yount’s former Corvette, the bid is up to just $2,425 as of Wednesday morning, with bidding set to stop on Saturday, July 29. With the car being offered at no reserve, someone could get a good deal on this celebrity Corvette.
The owner notes that the car runs and drives “nice” but has not been used very much over the past 20 years since it’s been in a collection. In fact, the odometer reads just 65,000 miles.
He says the interior is “in great shape,” the tires have about 80 percent tread left, and the black paint is shiny after having to be retouched because the Arizona sun had caused some fading.
The seller notes that the Corvette has the “hard to find” clear glass roof and 4+3 manual transmission, with a new clutch recently installed about 130 miles ago complete with TO bearing and flywheel at a cost of $2,300.
The crossfire injected engine has always been serviced, according to the listing.
While 1984 Corvettes don’t always get the respect they deserve in today’s collector market, this one has a little extra going for it if you like baseball in general and are a Brewers fan in particular. Those old enough to remember the hoopla over the new fourth generation ‘Vette when it was released know that it represented the Corvette world nicely at the time and was an impressive step up from the C3.
