We spent Saturday at Mecum Kissimmee to watch some of the featured Corvettes cross the auction block. Two Corvettes that caught our attention were offered just lots apart from each other. We pushed this video to our Facebook page while at the event, and now have had a chance to share it here as well!
First up was a 1963 Corvette Z06 with the N03 36-Gallon Fuel Tank (Lot # S140.1). The 1963 Corvette features a fuel injected 327/360-hp V8 and a host of heavy-duty performance options. The 1963 Corvette Z06 sold for $456,500.
Preceeding the Z06 Tanker on the block was a 1970 Corvette ZR1 (Lot #136.1). One of only 25 ZR1s produced, its unrestored condition shows just 16K miles. The ZR1 would reach a high bid of $130,000 but failed to sell. The “Bid Goes On” as they say at Mecum.
Here are the two cars in the staging lanes prior to auction:
