1967 Corvette Roadster

Mecum Auctions just wrapped up their 22nd annual Spring Classic last weekend in Indianapolis and Corvette sales were rather brisk during the five day event. We counted 146 Corvettes available on the docket with 68 selling for a total of $2,879,150 and a sales success rate of 46%. Those are fairly strong numbers considering the economy.

The top selling Corvette was the 1954 EX-87 mule (Lot #F208) used by Zora to set a record at the Arizona proving grounds. The restored engineering car sold for $310,000. The second best seller is an auction favorite, a 1967 Corvette convertible (Lot #F236) powered by an 427/435 hp V8. Described as a matching numbers masterpiece, the Nabors Brothers restored C2 convertible has three NCRS Top Flight awards. The Lynndale Blue Corvette sold for $162,500. Third on the list was a 1958 Resto-mod (Lot #S33) that sold for $137,500. The C1 tubular frame Corvette is powered by a Z06 engine from an ’01 C5 and finished in a bright yellow exterior.

There were several significant Corvettes that failed to meet reserve during the 5-day auction and went unsold. The Corvette receiving the highest bid for Vettes during the entire weekend was a documented 1969 Fathom Green L88 427/430 Coupe (Lot #F229) that topped out at $425,000. A split-window 1963 Ermine White Corvette Z06 Tanker (Lot #S173) reached $300,000 and the very first Corvette on the 1960′s, 1960 Corvette roadster VIN #00001 reached $290,000.

Barn Find: 1960 Corvette Roadster

by Keith Cornett on May 18, 2009

1960 Corvette Barn Find

These pictures of a 1960 Corvette were posted online at the Corvette Forum by a member looking for some pricing help on what to offer the owner. According to the poster, the motor is gone, but 95% of the other parts that are off the car are in one of several boxes. At one time, a new front clip was installed. The Corvette has a 4-speed transmission and 31,200 miles are on the odometer. The owner has had it since 1970 and its been stored in this barn for the last ten years.

Following the thread, we learned the seller said he was looking for $10,000 but wasn’t firm. The Forum member ended up buying the Corvette for $7,500. Our Corvette Price Guide puts the value of an average 1960 Corvette roadster at $50,400 and the 1 year appreciation is 7%. So let’s throw this question out to you. What do you think? Was this a good price for a 1960 Corvette in its present condition or should the buyer have run away from this potential basket case?

Transmission locked in reverse, mechanicals including brakes, clutch and suspension in poor condition.

Find out how we valued this Corvette after the jump.

1963 Corvette Roadster 1963 Corvette Roadster 1963 Corvette Roadster

1963 Corvette Roadster with VIN #30867S113XXX. The VIN indicates this Corvette was built in April 1963, the eighth month of 1963 Corvette production. The mileage is stated to be over 96,000 miles.

The paint color is Riverside Red, the original color, however the Corvette has been repainted. The condition of the paint can be termed good as are the seats, door panels and dash. The interior is Black in color. Also, the carpet appears to be in new condition but it was installed over a hole in the floorboard that was not properly repaired. The tachometer, oil pressure and temperature gauges are in working order.

The Corvette is powered by a non-original small block Chevrolet motor that has been modified. It is coupled with a 4-speed manual transmission that is currently locked in the reverse position. Other mechanicals are in need of repair or replacement including the wiring harness, exhaust, suspension, brakes, clutch and headlight lid motors. In general, the exterior and interior of this Corvette have been addressed but the under carriage and engine compartment need restoration.

The exterior body panels are correct with no modifications. The chrome bumpers are correct and in good condition.

The curb appeal of the 1963 Roadster is enhanced with the addition of knock-off wheels and new tires. This Corvette also has the removable hardtop that is in need of repair.

This Corvette was purchased from a Corvette dealer in 1984 and has been in storage until this year. No owner history or documentation is available.

We place a value of $25,000 on this 1963 Corvette Roadster. It has the potential of continuing to increase in value at 5% in average price on an annual basis.

Legendary EX87 Corvette Test Mule Offered at Mecum's Spring Classic

Chevrolet Dealer and noted Corvette Collector Bob McDorman will be bringing 25 unique cars to Dana Mecum’s Spring Classic in Indianapolis in mid-May. Among those cars is the first true high-performance Corvette in history, the 1954 EX87 test mule that Corvette’s first Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov drove to 163 mph at the Arizona Proving Grounds.

It was in the mid-1950’s that Zora Arkus-Duntov had Daytona legend Smokey Yunick install an experimental V8 engine into a 1954 Corvette test mule. Following that test, EX87 was reissued a new tracking number of 5951 and was returned to Zora at Chevrolet Engineering to prepare for a high-speed record run at Daytona Beach in January 1956.

Duntov modified the Corvette by replacing the windshield with a curved Plexiglas windscreen and fitting a fiberglass tonneau cover over the passenger side of the cockpit. Zora also fabricated a fiberglass headrest-tailfin for high speed stability.

Zora then went to work on the engine, increasing displacement from 283 to 307 ci and ordered a special camshaft from Engineering before loading EX87 onto a trailer and heading for GM’s Arizona Desert Proving Ground.

Engineering delivered “Duntov’s Cam” to the proving grounds and once installed, the test mule set a new record of 163 miles per hour. That cam became know as the “Duntov Cam”.

Once testing at the proving grounds was completed, the engine was pulled and installed in another famous Corvette #6901 which set a new record at Daytona with a run of 150.583 mph.

Following the death of Smokey Yunick in 2001, his widow called friend Steve Tate and said she had “some stuff around the shop” and to come see if there was anything he wanted. Among that “stuff” was an engine marked “Record Run”, the same engine Smokey installed in EX87/5951.

Tate tracked down the car and purchased it and its original Chevrolet experimental log book. Tate restored the Corvette and reunited it with the engine that set records so long ago. Upon completion, the Corvette was featured at the 2003 Bloomington Gold Corvette show.

1979 Corvette Coupe 1979 Corvette Coupe 1979 Corvette Coupe

1979 Corvette T-Top, VIN #1Z8789S443XXX. The Vin indicates it was built late in the 1979 Corvette model production year assuring that any modifications or engineering changes would have been included in this Corvette.

Mileage of 58,905 is reported as original and correct; this is very low for a 1979 vintage Corvette.

This T-Top Corvette is Classic White in color, the paint being termed in good condition. The body panels are totally original reflecting no modifications. The White paint is complimented by a Red leather interior, also in good condition.

The 1979 Corvette T-Top is powered by the original L48 motor (350 ci/195 hp) that was the base motor in 1979 as indicated by the fifth digit in the VIN #, 8=L48 motor. This motor is coupled with an automatic transmission, a combination selected by the majority of the 1979 Corvette buyers.

This Corvette is well equipped with many of the comfort and convenience options including power steering, brakes, windows, door locks, tilt-telescopic steering column and air-conditioning.

The original radio has been replaced by an after-market unit, however the radio housing has not been modified.

From a documentation perspective, the original owner’s manual is intact.

We place a value of $12,000 on this Corvette. From a substantiation perspective, first quarter 2009 auction results indicate the appraisal value is correct. Also of interest is that the one-year appreciation factor for the 1979 Corvette is 4%.

1959 Corvette Custom Resto-Mod

Barrett-Jackson concluded their three day collector car event in South Florida on Saturday and sales of the 39 Corvettes featured at the no-reserve auction totaled $2,146,275. This trails last year’s 4-day, 59 Corvette auction that brought in $3.8 Million in sales. Included in the sale were 11 Corvettes from GM’s Heritage Collection which brought a total of $496,650.

The overall top selling Corvette was a 1959 Corvette Custom Resto-Mod (Lot #652.1)equipped with a LS3 500-hp V8 and a ton of toys like the 7″ LCD screen for rear view camera plus DVD player and power activated trunk and hood. The custom Red/White cove roadster sold for $148,500 which was the eighth highest selling car of the entire auction. Second on the Corvette sales list was another C1, an original documented 1962 Roadster (Lot #674.1) powered by a 327 cubic inch fuelie. The Honduras Maroon NCRS Top Flight Corvette sold for $143,000.

As you may have read, sales of GM’s Heritage Collection cars was halted midway through Thursday’s auction by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over concerns that buyers would try to register the “scrap” titled cars for the road. Cooler heads prevailed and the sales resumed on Friday.

The top selling Corvette from the Heritage Collection was the 1999 “First Built” Hardtop (Lot #678.1). Equipped with an LS1 V8, Z51 suspension and a 6-speed manual transmission, the first production hardtop since 1967 sold for $110,000.
