Corvettes on CraigsList: 1958 Bondo Custom Roadster

by Keith Cornett on December 14, 2010

Corvettes on Craigs List: 1958 Bondo Custom Roadster

The description calls this Corvette a “very unique find” and I think most of us would agree that it should have stayed lost. The same family in Tennessee has had the Corvette since 1968 and in 1972 they added the custom nose and bondo-crafted rear flares. The front actually looks like the 1958 Corvette XP-700 concept that was penned by Chuck Jordan, the GM head of design who passed away last week. Unfortunately, that’s all that this craigslist special has in common with XP-700.

NCRS Offers Historical Document Services for Classic Corvette Owners

I often preach the importance of documentation when purchasing a classic Corvette because those documents (invoices, tank stickers, build sheets and protect-o-plates) play a key role in determining the value of your car. Unfortunately, that documentation is not available for every Corvette out there and so the only option owners had in tracing the lineage of their Corvette was through previous owners. This fall, the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) announced that through a partnership with the General Motors Heritage Center, it can offer members a new service that confirms the original delivery dealer as well as validate any GM documents you do have.

Corvettes on eBay: 1978 Batmobile Replica

We first came across Mark Shields (aka Super Genius) replica Corvette Batmobile in May 2006. A salvaged 1978 Corvette was used as the basis to create the one of kind tribute to Tim Burton’s 1989 reincarnation of the Dark Knight which featured Michael Keaton in the role of the caped crusader. The Corvette is now listed on eBay with a somewhat steep starting bid of $50,000.

Rare 1957 Airbox Corvette Sold at RM's Milton Robson Sale

RM Auctions descended on Gainesville, Georgia last week to sell one of the largest muscle car collections in the country. Milton Robson’s style was to collect the highest performance vehicle in the model year and series. In his 55-car collection, two Corvettes met his criteria: a 1967 427/435 hp Corvette and the very rare 1957 Corvette with Ramjet airbox fuel injection. There were just 43 factory airbox Corvettes built in 1957 and less than half that amount are believed to be still in existence.

[PICS] Mecum Auctions the Bob McDorman Collection

Pictures Contributed by Steve Burns

Chevrolet dealer Bob McDorman spent years assembling one of the finest and most diverse collections of Corvettes. With models spanning each year of production from 1953 through 2009, Bob also sought out low VIN Corvettes, pace cars and Corvettes previously owned by GM executives and celebrities. In addition to his Corvettes, Bob’s collection also featured other Chevrolets and tons of memoriabilia that only a dealer could assemble.

Check out our gallery of photos from the Bob McDorman Auction after the jump.

Corvette Auction Results: Bob McDorman's Corvette Sales Total $5 Million

Article Contributed by Steve Burns

It was right around 2pm on Saturday, November 6th when the first Corvette rolled up onto the auction block. Within 3 or 4 minutes the Polo White 1953 roadster had a new owner. This process repeated ‘Vette after ‘Vette for roughly the next 3 hours. The auction block, covered in the traditional Mecum Auctions red color scheme, was packed full of eager bidders throughout the Corvette portion of the docket. The earlier cars could barely been seen due to the mass of people, often times 5-6 deep, surrounding them. The crowd lessened as the auction moved on, but the block was always full of people.
