When Harley Earl left General Motors in 1963, he was gifted with this unique Corvette Sting Ray Convertible that was customized to his interests by the style department he originally created. The Harley Earl Corvette was the featured vehicle at Mecum’s 2013 Chicago auction and a little after 3pm ET on Saturday afternoon, the hammer fell with the sold price reaching $1.5 million.
Mecum Auctions blows into the Windy City this weekend for their annual sale. This year they christen a new location with 1,000 vehicles including over 90 Corvettes. The 3-day event kicks off Thursday, October 10th and runs through Saturday, October 12th at the Schaumburg Convention Center. Velocity will have 16 hours of live coverage from Chicago.
Check out this interesting midyear Coupe we found for sale on eBay. The psychedelic sixties were over a long time ago but sometimes they live on as in the case of the paint job found on this 1965 Corvette, down to the peace sign painted on the gas door cover. The auction still has a couple more days to go and so far the top bid has just surpassed $20,000.
