Barrett-Jackson 2011: Corvette Sales Top $10 Million at Scottsdale Auction Photo Credit: Mat Jones

Barrett-Jackson wrapped up their week-long collector car auction last Sunday and when all was said and done, Corvette sales totaled $10.89 million. Prices seem to returning to “normal” (if you can classify a Barrett-Jackson sale as normal) after a couple of down years due to the poor economy.

At one time, this 1984 Corvette was the pinnacle of automotive design. Introduced in 1983, the newly redesigned C4 Corvette took the world by storm. Over 51,000 coupes were produced with an MSRP of around $22,000. Unfortunately, time hasn’t been all that good for early C4 Corvettes as today you can find them pretty cheap. That brings us to this $3,000 White 1984 Corvette that is no doubt being used to class up the for sale inventory at Los Homies Auto Sales in Columbus, Ohio.

[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson 2011: 2011 Le Mans Anniversary Corvette Z06 Sells for $210,000

The Corvette Museum’s Motorsport Park project got a shot in the arm on Friday night following the sale of the 2011 Le Mans Anniversary Corvette Z06 at the 2011 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale.
