Barn Fresh Auction: 1964 Ermine White Corvette Coupe

by Keith Cornett on January 6, 2009

1964 Corvette Coupe Barn Find

Our friends at Valley Auto in Bedford, Pennsylvania continue to amaze us with barn fresh Corvettes to feast our eyes upon this winter. This two-owner 1964 Corvette Coupe appears to be a prime candidate for restoration as the numbers match up to some decent options including the L75 327/300 hp V8. Did someone just say Survivor?

This 1964 Corvette Coupe is nicely optioned with the popular 327 cubic inch L75 V8 engine rated at 300 horsepower, power brakes, power steering and a 4-speed manual gearbox. The Ermine White original paint is still on the car and the inside sports the original red interior. The engine compartment looks to be complete as well. The Corvette is numbers matching on the engine, transmission and rear end.

It’s unfortunate that we don’t know the back story as to why the Corvette was parked for so long. The photos show that by the looks of things, this Sting Ray has been sitting for some time. Check out the trailer photo with the mat or carpet stuck to the right front tire.

The 1964 Corvette was placed on eBay December 29th with an opening bid of $500 and a buy-it-now button at $31,995. The auction runs through December 8th and already there have been 14 bidders and 27 bids. The current bid stands at $26,660 with the reserve not yet met.

Corvette Museum Selling 2008 Corvette Coupe VIN #000001

by Keith Cornett on December 30, 2008

2008 Corvette Coupe VIN #000001

The National Corvette Museum has posted a new fundraiser auction on eBay – the sale of the very first Corvette produced in 2008. The Corvette – VIN #000001 – is a 2008 Coupe painted in Velocity Yellow and features the highly anticipated 4LT custom leather wrapped interior. The Corvette was part of GM’s Show Car Division where it was used primarily at Corvette Racing displays and at the Bloomington Gold show.

The 2008 model year saw Corvette get a number of significant mid-cycle upgrades and this Corvette Coupe appears to have been built with that in mind. VIN #000001 was the first Corvette fitted with the new LS3 6.2L engine producing 430 hp and coupled with the NPP dual mode performance exhaust, horsepower stands at 436.

The VIN #000001 Corvette also features F55 Magnetic Selective Ride Control, Polished Aluminum Wheels, OnStar, Heated Seats, AM/FM Stereo with 6-Disc In Dash CD Changer with MP3 playback and premium 7 speaker Bose sound system, XM Satellite Radio, Power Telescoping Steering Wheel, Head Up Display and Garage Door Opener.

The Corvette has just 977 miles on the odometer and comes with the remaining 5-Year 100,000 mile warranty. We are told the key fobs have all GM internal tags in place.

Corvette Buying & Selling: Gauging Originality

by Keith Cornett on December 23, 2008

1964 Corvette Dash Cluster

I was browsing the C1-C2 section on the Corvette Forum today when I came across an interesting post about an original 1964 Corvette Coupe for sale on eBay. Classic Corvettes are full of visual clues that alone or combined with others can help us identify the model year. They can be obvious like the five side fender vents on the 1967 model or a split rear window on the 1963 coupe. They can be less obvious like the differences in emblems and grills on the 1965 and 1966 Corvettes. Climb inside one of the Sting Ray models and visual clues abound as well. In the case of the eBay ad, a red flag goes up when a crucial part’s originality is questioned.

The 1964 Corvette Coupe that was listed for sale had the following description:

1964 Corvette Coupe
VIN # 40837S104407
Miles- 37,431 Original
327/300 HP with matching numbers

This Corvette is part of a family collection and has been in our family since the mid 1970s. This Corvette is completely original (never restored) and has been garage kept with less than 1,000 miles of drive time since our ownership. It is in excellent condition and runs beautifully. The car comes with 4-speed manual transmission and a 327/300 HP engine. The exterior is Ermine White. I believe the car was repainted before our ownership in the late 60s or early 70s. The paint is in very good condition, with only minor chips and flaws. All the chrome is in good condition with only minor pitting. The underside is very rust-free, and in excellent non restored shape. The interior is red leather with red carpeting. The floor board pieces of carpeting need replacing. All gauges are in working order, with the exception of the tachometer, which needs to be reconditioned. The clock and radio both work sporadically, and both need reconditioning. Both headlamp motors work very well. Other than that, this Corvette is in very solid, original condition and provides an excellent investment opportunity.

1964 Corvette Coupe 1964 Corvette Coupe 1964 Corvette Coupe

The member on Corvette Forum who posted the ebay link, “Pilot5970″ pointed out that this original 37,431 mile 1964 Corvette has a speedometer that didn’t show up in Corvettes until 1965. The differences between the 1963-64 speedometer and tachometers and those of the 1965-67 are subtle, but once you see the difference, it will be very obvious when you notice an incorrect pairing like on this 1964 Coupe.

The 1963-64 speedometer and tachometer have a recessed center with tapered rings around the needle. The 1965-67′s are flat faced with two screws holding in the assembly. The “pins” that hold the needles are silver on the early midyear gauges but the later gauges have a recessed indentation that is black with silver trim. See the photos for a comparison:

1963-64 Corvette Dash Cluster 1965-67 Corvette Dash Cluster
1963-64 Corvette Gauge 1965-67 Corvette Gauge

There are a variety of explanations on how a 1965 (or later) speedometer and tachometer could have made it into this 1964 Coupe. We first looked at the VIN which shows the sequence number to be 4407 of 22,229. Our thinking was that perhaps the new speedo and tach made it into production earlier than 1965, but this Corvette was assembled in November 1963, the third month into production, so I ruled out new equipment making an early appearance. Another legitimate reason could be a warranty replacement. Finally, while the seller does state they owned the Corvette since the mid-seventies, there is no mention of how many previous owners this car has had. These cars weren’t exactly collected for monetary value back in the mid-seventies and it could be that a previous owner swapped out the original pair for those from 1965-67. The point is we’ll probably will never know.

So what lessons are learned from the sale of this 1964 Corvette Coupe? Our first lesson is always first for a reason. Knowledge is power. The more you can know about a particular generation and specifically a particular year of Corvette can save you from making a thousand dollar mistake. Secondly, have the Corvette looked over by an expert. Hire an NCRS judge. If there are no NCRS types in your neck of the woods, find an owner of the same year. How did “Pilot5970″ know about the incorrect speedometer? He owns a 1964 Corvette. Third, documentation and owner history could go along way in clearing the air in this type of situation. Don’t consider buying an “investment” quality Corvette without them. Finally, weigh the consequences of buying a Corvette like this with its questionable mileage. One day you may be selling it and may have to explain the replacement to a more knowledgeable buyer than you were.

FYI, this Corvette was sold on Monday, December 21st for $33,600. The auction had 9 bidders and 22 individual increases in price.

Corvette Auction: GM to Sell Part of Heritage Collection

by Keith Cornett on December 22, 2008

Corvettes at GM's Heritage Center Museum

Looking to make some quick cash, GM announced a corporate garage sale where they’ll be selling off approximately 250 of the slightly less important and more recent collectibles from the Heritage Collection – the automaker’s corporate museum. The collection will be offered over several auctions starting with Barrett-Jackson’s Collector Car Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona in mid-January. A non-official list of cars is circulating with 30+ Corvettes on it including several 1989 Corvette ZR-1s and a bevy of Pace Cars.

GM hasn’t finalized the list of vehicles to be sold, and Tom Freiman, manager of the Heritage Center calls the list of vehicles that is circulating the internet as “in-accurate”. GM is not expected to sell any car that is one of a kind or is a milestone, so a couple of the early ZR-1s might not be included. Here is the non-official list of Corvettes:

  • 1989 Corvette DR-1
  • 1989 Corvette Snake Skinner
  • 1989 Corvette Splash
  • 1989 Corvette ZR-1
  • 1989 Corvette ZR-1 (Dark Red)
  • 1989 Corvette ZR-2 Big Doggie
  • 1990 Corvette Right Hand Steer
  • 1990 Corvette ZR-1 Active
  • 1991 Corvette Convertible
  • 1992 Corvette ZR-1 First Built (Red)
  • 1993 Corvette LT-1 Spyder
  • 1994 Corvette (Teal)
  • 1994 Corvette HO
  • 1997 Corvette Alpha Build
  • 1997 Corvette Beta Build
  • 1997 Corvette Tiger Shark
  • 1998 Corvette First Built
  • 1998 Corvette X-plorers
  • 1999 Corvette C5R Show Car
  • 1999 Corvette Shark
  • 2000 Corvette Z06 Race
  • 2003 Corvette Lemans Pace #3
  • 2004 Corvette Indy Pace
  • 2005 Corvette Atlantic
  • 2005 Corvette Pacific
  • 2007 Corvette Z06 First Built (Red)
  • 2007 Corvette Indy Pace Car (Copper)
  • 2008 Corvette Indy Pace Car (Black)
  • Corvette C5 Display Chassis
  • Corvette Purple Smash
  • Corvette Racing Boat
  • Corvette Trailer
  • Corvette ZR1 Rolling Chassis
  • Corvette ZR 1 Snake Skinner

GM has been thinning out its Heritage Collection over the last few years and most recently we watched the sale of several Corvette Pace Cars at October’s Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction. In additon to January’s Scottsdale auction, some of the GM collection will be sold at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach auction in April 2009.

Barn Fresh and Restoration Ready: 1962 Corvette Roadster

by Keith Cornett on December 11, 2008

1962 Corvette Roadster Barn Find

There’s just something special about a barn car seeing the light of day after years of storage. Despite the thick coat of dust and the surface rust that cloaks the engine compartment, beyond the dirty interior and ripped seats, there’s the overwhelming feeling that this Corvette is about to get a fresh start. A new owner somewhere is about to embark on a journey of restoration – whether by himself or through the service of a restoration shop – with the end reward being that this Corvette will once again hit the open road.

The original owner of this 1962 Corvette roadster parked her in a barn one day in 1973 and there she sat for the next 35 years. The owner recently sold the Corvette to Valley Auto in Bedford, PA who promptly listed the beige convertible on eBay where is sold last week for $26,000.

The description states that this is a non-matching car as the original engine was stolen years ago but was replaced with a correct 870 block heads and intake. The VIN tag reads 20867S111262 which puts the assembly of the Corvette in May 1962, about 4 months before last 62 Corvette would be completed and the C1 Solid Axle era would come to an end.

The new owner has many choices ahead to make for the future of this fresh barn car. Whether a historically accurate restoration or a resto-mod build awaits this Corvette is anybody’s guess. But that’s part of the fun of owning one of these special cars, isn’t it?

Paul Teutul Sr's 2006 Corvette Z06

Orange County Chopper’s Paul Teutul Sr is parting with another one of his Corvettes and this time he turns to ebay to sell his personal 2006 Corvette Z06. Paul Sr bought this Corvette new and has since put only 8,700 miles on her. Every option was ordered and he added some personal touches with the custom interior and the black wheels. The car has been featured on several episodes of American Chopper and the buyer will receive DVD copies signed by Teutul.

Is this not the blackest black Corvette you’ve ever seen? It comes loaded with heads up display, navigation, power drivers seat and more. Featuring the 505 horsepower LS7 V8 engine coupled to the six speed manual transmission, this Corvette is ready to roll.

Teutul is no stranger to the auction scene when it comes to unloading part of his collection. In January 2007, Paul and his son turned to Barrett-Jackson to sell six vehicles including a 1960 fuel injected Corvette paired with a custom 2005 chopper. In this round of eBay auctions, Paul is also unloading a 1969 COPO Camaro tribute car.

In addition the signed DVD’s, the buyer may take delivery of the Corvette Z06 at Paul Sr’s estate and have the opportunity to view his personal collection of motorcycles and cars. A tour of the Newburgh NY shop is included and Paul will take photos and sign the Corvette. Pretty cool.

The eBay auction ends on November 20th and 18 bidders have the Corvette up to $48,500 currently. The reserve price has yet to be reached.

Corvette Auction Results: 2008 Mecum St. Charles

by Keith Cornett on November 11, 2008

1967 Corvette Auctioned by Mecum

Mecum Collector Car Auctioneers held their muscle car and Corvettes auction in St. Charles, Illinois last month and in spite of the fact the auction was held during turbulent economic times, the results may surprise you. Over half the Corvettes entered were sold and sales topped $1.53 Million. The top selling Corvette of the auction is also the hottest, newest collectible Corvette on the market – the 2009 Corvette ZR1.

73 Corvettes were listed for three day event and 38 were hammered sold for a success rate of 52%. Four Corvettes crossed the $100,000 sales plateau with a brand spankin new red 2009 Corvette ZR1 bringing in $137,500 as the weekend’s top selling Corvette. Second on the list was a Cascade Green 1957 283/283 Fuelie that sold for $115,500. Third and fourth were two factory AC 1967 Corvette roadsters powered by the 427/400 hp L68: The Red/White/Black ’67 Corvette sold for $112,350 and an Elkhart Blue ’67 Corvette with power steering sold for $110,250.

What I find telling is that this auction was held about week into the current financial breakdown which started around September 25th. Despite the gloomy news and daily stock market free falls, over half the Corvettes sold and pricing didn’t really seem to suffer that greatly. From a buyer’s perspective there appeared to be some good deals. A 1970 Coupe went for $13,125 while a 1967 Coupe sold for $35,000. Not being at the auction, we cannot attest to the quality and originality of either cars.

Here are the total sold results for Mecum’s St. Charles Auction:

Custom 4-Door Corvette is Fun for the Whole Family

by Keith Cornett on November 11, 2008

1987 Corvette 4-Door with Suicide Doors

One of the curses, or blessings depending on your outlook is the fact that the Corvette is a 2-seat sports car. Room enough for you and a buddy or your significant other, but no more. Gene Swatek thought the Corvette should be a car that could be enjoyed by the whole family, so he custom built what I am sure is the world’s only 1987 four-door Corvette.

The father of four girls got the idea for the custom 4-seater after going to Corvette shows and wishing he could take more of his family. To create his 4-door sports car, Gene took a driver quality stock 1987 corvette and it in half. He made his own steel extension frame members to stretch the Corvette an additional 38 inches. The rear suicide doors were added as well as the rear leather seats and custom ground effects.

Gene says the Corvette took about 18 months to build and while he had plans to custom build a convertible top that could stretch over the extended passenger area, time got away from him and he never got around to doing it. According to Gene, the convertible is so much fun, who needs a top or windows anyways!

The FamilyVette II as its called is the second of Gene’s elongated Corvette creations, hence the II. His first FamilyVette was a red 1984 limo-styled Corvette made from 2/3′s of the front of one Corvette and 2/3′s of the rear from another. You can see more of his work at www.familyvettes.com.

The white 1987 Corvette is currently for sale with a listing on eBay but no bids have yet to have been laid on the custom car yet. The auction ends on November 18th and the starting bid is $12,000.

In celebration of today being Halloween, we bring you these Corvettes for sale we found on ebay that we think have crossed that line from tasteful to being just downright scary.

Bruce Willis' 1957 Corvette Roadster

The 1957 Corvette roadster owned by Bruce Willis was sold at the Bonhams & Butterfields’ California Classic auction on Saturday. The White/White convertible was hammered for a sale at $79,560 which included the undisclosed buyer’s commission. Bruce’s second Corvette in the auction was a 1967 Marlboro Maroon 427/435 Convertible that didn’t reach reserve and was unsold.

The 1957 Corvette was a gift to Bruce Willis from his ex-wife actress Demi Moore. Bruce had the non-standard Blue/White Corvette repainted to Polo White and upgraded the mechanicals by installing front disc brakes with a power booster and adding power steering. The Corvette came with the base 283 ci 220 hp V8 engine and it apparently is an original Radio Delete car.

Here is the description of the Bruce Willis 1957 Corvette from Bonhams & Butterfields:

1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Chassis no. E57S104949

The early Corvettes advanced steadily from the near-prototype hand built construction of the first 300 Corvettes in 1953, through their 3,640 successors in 1954, both with Blue Flame six-cylinder engines and Powerglide, through the first V-8 powered 1955 Roadsters of which only 700 were built.

1956 saw Corvette make a major evolution, becoming a true convertible with rollup windows. For the first time its distinctive fender side coves appeared. 1956 also brought Corvette’s first optional high performance engine. Described as “for racing purposes only”, its dual 4-barrel carburetors could be combined with RPO 449 high lift camshaft to deliver something like 240 brake horsepower from the little 265 cubic inch Chevy V-8. It was a harbinger of things to come.

Corvette fully matured in 1957 with a laundry list of 283 cubic inch engines and other performance options. There were five available engines, starting with the 220hp V-8 and ending, of course, with the famous 283/283 Fuelie engine. On April 9, 1957, just over half way through the year’s production, Corvette closed the last gap in its stature as a true sports car with the addition of the Borg-Warner T10 4-speed manual transmission to its options list.

Attesting to the success of the evolved Corvette concept and its execution was the year’s production, 6,339 cars, nearly double the 1956 total of only 3,467.

One of them was this base model Corvette which Demi Moore gave to Bruce Willis. It has had a thorough restoration and is still in sharp, near-showroom condition. A base 283 cubic inch, 220 horsepower car with Powerglide transmission, it was finished in Light Blue with White coves and White upholstery. Although it has a heater it is apparently an original radio delete car, as it has the factory blanking plate in the instrument panel cutout and no RF suppression shielding on the secondary ignition wires.

Bruce Willis then set out to give it some personalization, including installing disc front brakes with a power booster, power steering and radial tires (reproduction BFG Silvertown wide whitewalls) for better handling on 15” wheels with spinner wheel covers. The color combination was non-standard so Bruce entrusted it to the acknowledged experts at Performance Paint in Torrance, California to repaint it in a gorgeous nearly pure bone white color. It comes with both hard and soft tops, both in white to give it a consistent all-white presentation that is outstanding.

It is described as a sweet running Corvette in excellent overall running and driving condition and is ideal for cruising or weekend jaunts in the country. Its all-white presentation is dynamically different and will stand alone among any Corvette display.

If purists ask why it’s presented this way the response, “Because this is the way Bruce Willis wanted it,” is virtually guaranteed to start a conversation.
