2009 Corvette ZR1 Hits CraigsList for $350,000

by Keith Cornett on March 11, 2008

2009 Corvette ZR1

We’ve heard over and over again that the MSRP for the 620 hp 2009 Corvette ZR1 should be around $100,000. We also know that when the first ZR1 hit the open market back in January at Barrett-Jackson, it sold for 10 times that amount. So we can’t blame some guy in LA who placed an ad on the free classifieds website Craiglist to advertise the sale of two 2009 Corvette ZR1′s with a considerable market adjustment price of $350,000 each:

yes i have guaranteed myself to get three but only selling two who wants one ?dont wait till this summer there are only 2000 being made price will go up SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY.

Will demand for the 2000 or so Corvette ZR1s expected to be produced in 2009 live up to the hype and create a secondary market that hasn’t been seen since the introduction of the 1978 Corvette Pace Car 30 years ago? Jay Leno said during his introduction of the ZR1 at Barrett Jackson that he was the president of the “More Money Than Brains” club. Our craigslist seller might just be a member as well…

1954 Corvette

With all the attention the 1953 Corvettes have been getting recently, we thought we’d take a look at what some are calling the best value of the early C1s – the 1954 Corvette.

The rising values of the 1954 Corvette has surprised many as it appears the 2nd year model is finally making its move. Many factors justify the appreciation of the 1954s, none more significant than the fact that the model year is sandwiched between the skyrocketing values of the 1953 Corvette and the V8 Powered 1955 Corvette. In the past, the 1954 Corvette was in many ways considered the stepchild of the early C1 generation, but no more as collectors are beginning to appreciate the Corvette on its own merits.

Production of the 1954 was moved to its own renovated assembly plant in St. Louis and benefited greatly from the lessons learned from the mostly hand assembled 1953 Corvette. GM’s estimated 10,000 units would be produced but only 3,640 constructed. While the sales projection was way off for the time, this production number is over 10 times the number of 1953 Corvettes produced and over 5 times greater than the 1955 Corvette that followed it.

As there were no real drive-train options offered, the 1954 Corvette is one of those rare years where the values are driven almost exclusively by the exterior color. Of the 3,640 1954 Corvettes produced, it’s estimated that the colors were broken down as: 3,230 Polo White, 300 Pennant Blue, 100 Sportsman Red and 4 Black. Therefore with similar cars (condition, documentation, etc) any color other than Polo White will be valued at $10,000-$15,000 more while the ultra-rare Blacks could command three to four times that.

Our Corvette Price Guide documents the rising values of the 1954 Corvette with an average price of $65,000 and a high of $143,000. However most astounding is the appreciation figures. The 1954′s 1 year appreciation is 30% and the 5 year appreciation figure is 85%. Who’s the stepchild now!

In perusing the market in search of examples we found the following:

1954 Polo White Corvette1954 Corvette Convertible, Blue Flame Six, powerglide, numbers match. Polo White paint with Sportsman Red interior and Beige Soft top. Body-off restored over a five year period with the top and interior being done by professional restorer, John Kennedy of Bountiful, Utah. Show condition! Optioned with powerglide, 3.55 rear, Wonderbar radio, e-brake warning light, windshield washers, courtesy lights, heater, hubcaps, and 6.70×15″ wide white tires. Most all factory correct type components including the spare, jack, jack tools, trunk mat, trunk liner, side curtain, side curtain bag, rebound straps, washer system, tar top battery, shifter, shielding, air cleaners, generator, side draft carbs, and #241 head. A very correct spectacular first generation Corvette that was a recent Bloomington Gold feature car. Looks, runs, and drives excellent. Offered by Proteam Corvette. $119,000

1954 Sportsman Red CorvetteFinished in stunning and rare Sportsman Red with correct Red interior. One of only 100 built, this spectacular motorcar was purchased in Southern California from a professor who acquired the car from its original owner, a GM factory engineer. This museum-quality Corvette is one of the very first three red Corvettes ever built by General Motors. It has only been driven 25,000 miles and has recently undergone a cosmetic restoration, including show quality paint, new interior, new tires and new top (original tires and interior are now boxed and goes with the car!). This spectacular motorcar has been examined by many Corvette experts and is believed to be one of the nicest original examples on the market today. It has the correct, numbers matching engine, correct carburetors and many early unique features such as dual hood releases, ultra-short (pre-Duntov) exhaust tips, correct date-coded side curtains with the storage case, original factory spare and so much more. eBay Buy-It-Now Price: $119,900

1954 Polo Blue Corvette2-owner 1954 Chevy Corvette. 1954 was the first year this car was produced in a color other than white. This Pennant Blue sportster will turn heads at every corner. Except for the paint, this baby is all original. The side curtains, the spare tire, the soft top, gauges, Wonder-Bar Radio, hub caps and even the original windshield-washer fluid container – all original!!! The radio works but the speaker needs to be connected. The Blueflame engine is all original and all numbers match. In 1954, 3230 whites were produced. Only 300 Pennant Blues were produced. This is truly one of the rare ones!!! There are some areas that can use some TLC – for example, the carpeting and driver’s seat. The driver’s side curtain is missing a small screw and both curtains need some work on the rubber trim. The car starts on first try and sounds like a dream. The Powerglide Automatic transmission shifts smoothly. eBay Current Bid: $25,655.00

There are two ordering cycles for the 427 Limited Edition with the second cycle opening in two weeks. Only dealers who were allocated Z06s today are getting 427s, so all of this week’s Z06 allocations nationwide are for the 427 Limited Edition Z06.

The Z44 Option features a unique exterior paint scheme including a black “Stinger” hood, special chrome wheels, Dark Titanium Leather Wrapped interior and special 427 badges throughout. MSRP begins at $84,195.

The previous two limited edition Corvettes, 2007′s Ron Fellows ALMS GT1 Championship Z06 and the Indianapolis Pace Car both sold out very quickly and there is every indication that demand will be high for the first of two planned 2008 Limited Edition Corvettes. Making its debut in May will be the 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Indianapolis 500 Pace Car.

Sharon StoneA bizarre saga unfolded Sunday night at Elton John’s post-Oscar party. One of the highlights of the party is the celebrity auction with proceeds benefiting The Elton John AIDS Foundation. Longtime supporter Sharon Stone has donated cars in previous years to the event, but this year she made a bit of extra news when she decided to give her 1974 T-Top Corvette to the cause.

The Corvette, it was said, was valued at $40,000 and the expectation was that it would be sold for around $120,000. For what it’s worth, the High price for a 1974 T-Top in our Corvette Price Guide is only $19,900, but this is Hollywood we’re talking about. Read the rest of this story after the jump.

So the auction for the Corvette starts and unfortunately for all involved, an unidentified bidder opened the bidding at $1 Million. The audience, obviously stunned by the opening ante, sat on their hands and let the bidder win. But when it came time to settle up, the bidder explained that he didn’t have the money to buy the Corvette. He said his plan was to make a big bid and then drop out as soon as someone bid more.

The Corvette went unsold. The AIDS foundation lost an expected contribution. And Sharon Stone was not amused…

The story reinforces two important lessons about bidding for cars at auctions.

  • Never be the guy to open the bidding. Let someone else set the opening mark.
  • Never bid unless you intend to buy.

And while I can’t say what was going through the mind of Sharon Stone’s deadbeat bidder when he called out $1 Million, I am betting that there is a third and final lesson to this story:

  • Never indulge in alcoholic beverages if you plan to bid (and buy) at an auction.

1953 Corvette Roadster

Today we conclude our annual Corvette pricing series by taking a look at the Corvette generational pricing highlights of 2007. The years continue to be good for Corvette owners. Nearly all Corvettes from 1953-1982 are showing appreciation. Many C4 Corvette models have turned the corner and are beginning to show modest increases. And finally, depreciation is happening where it should – the C5 and new C6 corvettes.

1953-1962:
This generation is the appreciation trend leader for the Corvette resale market. Appreciation results are from +6% to +192% – quite a range. At 6% there was the 1961 model at an average price of $44,000. Most of the first generation Corvette information was covered in the appreciation overview. We expect these models to continue as the appreciation leaders in 2008.

1963-1967:
The mid-years will always be a popular series with the Corvette enthusiast. The unfortunate results of this popularity is that they are becoming out of purchase range for the average Corvette buyer. The appreciation range was between +6 – +19% with several models in the 6% column. The 1964 Coupe continues as the entry level for this series at an average price of $33,500 and shows a 6% appreciation factor.

1968-1982:
The average price range for this generation was from $9,200 (1978 T-Top) to $27,900 (1969 Roadster). The appreciation range reflected from a position of ‘No Change’ to +17% as shown on our chart. Only one model reflected depreciation, the 1982 Collector at an average price of $18,000 that reflected a (-4%) change.

1984-1996:
In this category, excluding the Grand Sport models, seventeen of the models are showing appreciation numbers in average price of +1% to +9%. An example of this group at +9% was the 1990 ZR1. In the negative department, the range was (-1%) to (-13%) where the (- 13%) depreciation representative was the 1987 Roadster. Average prices spanned from $8,700 (1984 Coupe) to $41,700 (1995 ZR1).

1997-2004:
The prices of the early models in this generation (1997-2000) were below the $20,000 mark. At these kinds of prices one buys a considerable amount of Corvette performance, handling, technology and comfort and convenience features. These may become the entry level Corvettes for first time buyers. None have yet been identified as showing appreciation, however the 1999 first year Hard Top is showing a (-6%) depreciation factor rather then double-digits at $17,900.

2005-2008:
The Coupes in this series are showing single-digit depreciation of (-6%) to (-9%). The 2006 Roadster and 2006 Z06 are at (-10%) and (-11%). If past history is any indication, we expect all models to reflect double-digit depreciation during this year.

Depreciating Corvettes: Top 10 Price Declines of 2007

by Keith Cornett on February 21, 2008

2001 Corvette Z06

Yesterday we shared an analysis of the 2008 Corvette Price Guide in respect to the Top 12 price gainers of 2007. Today we look at the other end of the spectrum to detail the Corvettes with the highest declining vales. We are fortunate that despite a roller coaster economy, depreciation is hitting Corvette exactly where it should be – The C5 Corvette. It should not come as a surprise to see the fifth generation Corvettes holding all ten positions. The norm for newer Corvettes is to reflect double-digit depreciation for some years, followed by single-digit depreciation for several more years and finally cross over in the appreciation area.

Here are the top 10 Corvettes with the highest depreciation values:

Top Depreciation Models
Year Make % Change Average Price
2001 Z06 -20% $23,000
1998 Roadster -18% $19,200
2002 Z06 -17% $27,000
1998 Coupe -17% $17,000
1999 Coupe -16% $18,500
2002 Roadster -15% $27,500
2002 Coupe -14% $24,000
2003 Z06 -14% $31,000
2004 Z06 -14% $33,500
1999 Roadster -14% $21,300

More analysis of the Top 10 Price Declines of 2007 follows the jump.

One surprise on the depreciation list is the C5 Z06. Up until this year, the C5 Z06 Corvette was a bit more insulated from double-digit depreciation due to its performance characterizes and lower production numbers, but that appears to have changed now that the C6 Corvette has been on the street for what is now its fourth year.

Virtually all of the C5s showed double-digit depreciation last year. We expect the early models in the series to drop to single-digit depreciation this year. The Z06s were most notable on the chart. As stated before, they don’t provide ‘open’ cabin driving. From a horsepower perspective, the standard sixth generation Corvettes are comparable.

Following the C5 Corvettes on this list are the 2005-2006 Corvettes which show a depreciation range of -9% to -12%.

The late C4 Corvettes (1992-1996) are slowing in their depreciation with several models starting to turn the corner. We are seeing all but one year of the c4 ZR-1 Corvettes in positive territory now.

The C3 Corvette generation is really starting to mature despite the lack of performance options later in the run. Only two model years, the 1976 and 1977 have an average price under $10,000, The 1979 Corvette is a no change despite having the second highest production in the history of Corvette. In fact, the only C3 Corvette to decline in value is the 1982 Collector’s Edition Corvette which is down slightly at -4%. The regular 1982 Corvette is a no change.

Finally, what’s amazing about Corvettes from an investment perspective is that every Corvette from 1953 through 1978 shows an appreciation in their values. That is 25 years of Corvettes that are increasing in value!

Appreciating Corvettes: Top 12 Price Gainers of 2007

by Keith Cornett on February 20, 2008

1996 Corvette Grand Sport Roadster

The 2007 ‘Corvette’ calendar was quite interesting in many ways. We particularly noted record prices for quality, documented first and second generation Corvettes. More and more of these models have been restored and brought to market, many with NCRS certification and Bloomington Gold Awards in tow. These vehicles continue to sell at top dollar while those termed in ‘average’ condition are showing somewhat positive results, however not in the double digit appreciation results we have see over the past few years.

Rare low production numbered Vettes continue to sell at record prices including late models. A classic example is the 1996 Grand Sport holding the #2 spot on our appreciation chart.

Data from the Corvette Price Guide comes from analyzing the selling prices of over 5,800 Corvettes during 2007 and then comparing the sales figures to years prior. That method has proven to be a statistically accurate measure of the Corvette Market.

Top Appreciation Models
Year Make % Change Average Price
1953 Roadster 192% $316,250
1996 GS Roadster 50% $65,000
1955 Roadster 38% $81,000
1954 Roadster 30% $65,750
1963 Coupe 19% $49,900
1969 T-Top 17% $23,600
1996 GS Coupe 14% $38,200
1958 Roadster 13% $52,000
1969 Roadster 12% $27,900
1956 Roadster 11% $54,500
1967 Roadster 11% $58,200
1971 Roadster 11% $26,000

More analysis of the Top 12 appreciating Corvettes after the jump.

The 1953 Corvette has shown astronomical results and was the hot ticket during 2007. Normally one or two surface each year, however, several were sold during the year at record prices.

The same holds true for the 1996 Grand Sport, a limited production Corvette made up of 190 Roadster and 810 Coupes. We noted a number sold with mileage numbers under the 300 mark.

The 1955 Corvette, another low production Corvette with only 700 built holds down the number three spot on the chart.

Much to our surprise, the 1954 model is caught up in the 1953 Corvette hype and has become a ‘tag-along’. However, in defense of the 1954 Roadster’s appreciation, we note that it does offer three rare factory paint colors, Black, Red and Blue.

The popularity of the first generation continues with the unique body panels and trim of the 1958.

The 1956 model, which follows in the Top Ten sequence for appreciation, was the first to offer an eight cylinder motor coupled with a manual transmission.

Two mid-year Corvettes are listed on the chart as well, the 1963 Coupe had been undervalued in recent years even though the split-window continues to draw special attention to this Corvette.

The mid-year icon, the 1967 Roadster, also makes a repeat appearance on this list. When one mentions mid-year Corvettes those words are usually followed by, “is or was it a 1967 Corvette”.

Three third generation Corvettes are on the chart and moving up in value. Many of the buyers recognize they cannot afford first and second generation Corvettes and are purchasing chrome bumper Corvettes that have numerous motor options and continued appreciation results.

The top appreciation gainers were led by the 1953 Corvette which clocked in at 192%. The first-year Corvette has shown astronomical results and was the hot ticket during 2007. Normally one or two surface however several were sold during the year at record prices. The same holds true for the 1996 Grand Sport, a limited production Corvette made up of 190 Roadsters (+50%) and 810 Coupes (+14%). The 1955 Corvette, another low production Corvette with only 700 built holds down the number three spot on the chart at 38%.
