[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 1966 Corvette 427/425hp NOM

Here is an interesting 1966 Corvette Convertible that appeared Saturday at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction in Palm Beach. The Triple Black Corvette features a 427/425 hp L72 and is fresh off a restoration, but it comes with a caveat: Originally a 427/425 car, it doesn’t have the original engine. Will the price be affected or will its curb appeal rope in buyers who may be more interested in driving the Sting Ray instead of a storing a garage queen. Watch the video after the jump.

Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 1990 Corvette ZR-1

The C4 version of the Corvette ZR-1 was nicknamed “The King of the Hill” for good reason. At a time when the standard Corvette’s horsepower was 245, the 1990 Corvette ZR-1 was powered by the new 375-horsepower LT-5 V8 which featured a 32-valve dual overhead cam. Looking back today, Corvette’s return to the world stage of sports car performance can be directly attributed to this special edition.

Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach 2010: 2009 Competition Sport Corvette

When we published the final production numbers for the 2009 Corvettes, we said thirty years from now Corvette collectors would be seeking out the GT1 ALMS Championship and the Competition Sport Editions due to their low production numbers. Actually, it only took one year as this 2009 Arctic White Competition Sport Coupe sold for more than its original MSRP and became the top seller on Day 1 of the 2010 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction.
