Mecum's Bloomington Gold Auction Rakes in $5.8 million in Corvette Sales

Article and photos contributed by Steve Burns

The atmosphere at this year’s Bloomington auction was interesting. The tent was generally full of bidders and spectators all weekend. Surprisingly, though, bids were hard to come by at times. This can be seen in the numerous cars that sold for less than $10,000. On the flip side of this were the high-end cars. The 1971 ZR2 opened and bidding promptly stalled at $400k. A few moments later the bid was raised to $410k, the reserve was lifted, and the ZR2 was off to its new home.

Corvettes on eBay: Mail Order Baldwin/Motion Corvette

Article contributed by Steve Burns

Remember way back before the internet? Like back when ordering parts from a catalog involved filling out that confusing little centerfold sheet filled with oddly shaped boxes, cryptic color codes, and nondescript abbreviations? In today’s world if we need something by mail, we just fire up the ole PC, click a few buttons, enter a few numbers and voila! Our items show up at our door stop a few days later.

This uber rare Baldwin/Motion Phase III Corvette is currently up for grabs on eBay. Unlike other Baldwin/Motion cars which were assembled prior to purchase, this 1968 Corvette was modified about 4 years after it was driven off the lot by the original owner. All the requisite Motion Performance parts were ordered through the mail and a local body shop performed the transformation. The car is currently listed on eBay waiting for you to purchase it. Find out more about this stunning ride and the price tag attached to it after the jump.

Corvettes on eBay: First 2010 Corvette ZR1 VIN 0001

Here is a Corvette ZR1 for sale on eBay that is worthy of collector car status. This Jetstream Blue Corvette was the first ZR1 produced in the 2010 model year. Wearing VIN #0001, it comes with a 3ZR package and features a Dark Titanium interior and chrome wheels. But here is the kicker: the selling dealer acquired this Corvette directly from General Motors. Although it has just over 3,500 miles, it has never been titled.
