Corvettes on eBay: 1999 C5 Corvette Race Car and Trailer Ready for the Track

If you’ve ever wanted a full-on Corvette race car to show people how it’s done at the track, you may want to hurry over to eBay.

Our friends at ProTeam Corvette will be in spotlight this Saturday at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale. That’s when a very special Corvette race car with ties to NASCAR will be offered for sale during the “Salon Select 5000 collection”.

We’ve written about ProTeam’s 1953 NASCAR Corvette before which started out as VIN 211 of the first 300 Corvettes built. The first-year Corvette was repurposed as a race car through an internal Chevrolet Shop Order and originally saw action for the 1956 Flying Mile competition on Daytona Beach before entering competition in NASCAR’s International Series for sports cars.

CorvetteBlogger contributor Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com worked with ProTeam Corvette to help write their 50-page flipbook highlighting the research and history of the 1953 NASCAR Corvette and we are fortunate to be able to share some of the important history of this Corvette prior to its auction at Barrett-Jackson.

Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

by Keith Cornett on January 5, 2015

Corvettes on eBay: 127-Mile 1990 Corvette ZR-1

When Chevrolet introduced the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 to the world at the Geneva Motor Show, a new chapter of Corvette performance was written. Nicknamed “King of the Hill”, the new supercar Corvette featured an aluminum dual overhead cam engine capable of 375 horsepower and could rip a 0-60 mph time in the 4s – pretty fast in those days. The auto media loved the new Corvette and it was featured on just about every car magazine cover in its day.

Buyer reaction to the C4 Corvette ZR-1 was also red-hot despite the nearly $30,000 upcharge over the base Corvette for the ZR-1 package. Like the 1978 Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car, intense speculation about the future collectibilty of the ZR-1 also drove many buyers to pluck down the $60,000 for the Corvette only to store it away for a future sale.

1965 Corvette VIN 001 Heading to Mecum's Kissimmee Auction

The 1965 Corvette Sting Ray was in its day the C7 of the era, you might say.

The third year of the second generation featured serious updates for drivers, not the least of which was Zora’s long-awaited disc brakes at all four wheels to provide the best possible stopping ability for the time.

Just as the C7 is the darling of the car magazines these days, so was the 1965 Corvette that was finally judged not only an American status symbol but a genuine high-performance sports car capable of thrilling even the most demanding drivers.
