2008 Corvette Z06

One of selling points of Corvettes is their broad appeal, not just here in the States, but in other Countries as well. Canadians in particular have a fondness for America’s Sports Car and we found a site in Québec that makes it easy for our friends in the Great White North to find and buy the Corvette of their dreams.

You can search and find late-model C5 and C6 Corvettes for sale in local classifieds or online, but try getting a private seller to offer an extended manufacturer’s warranty or 24-hour roadside assistance – and most importantly – how about a 150+ point inspection from qualified technicians? GM Optimum offers all this and more on their end-of-lease cars and trucks including the Chevy Corvette.

The GM Optimum Advantage:

  • Choose from the best of GM’s end-of-lease Corvettes
  • Every Corvette is subject to a 150+ point inspection to ensure quality
  • Each GM Optimum Corvette is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty
  • GM Optimum offers 24-hour roadside assistance including towing!
  • Not satisfied with your purchase? How about a 30 day exchange period?

Since I started visiting, I’ve noticed the site has a fairly quick turnover of Corvettes, so you’ll want to bookmark it and check back frequently if you’re in the market for a pre-owned Corvette. As fast as Corvettes are on the street, they seem to move even faster once listed on GM Optimum. Here are a few Corvettes that caught my eye:

Friday’s Featured Corvettes for Sale: The Bruce Willis Collection

Technorati Tags:

Bruce Willis and his 1967 Corvette Roadster

Bruce Willis not only has a collection of dirty, bloody, ripped up white t-shirts, as that seems to be how every movie ends with him wearing, but apparently he’s a fairly serious collector of American muscle cars. Come October 25th, his collection will be a bit lighter as he’s selling several cars including two Corvettes.

Strength, performance and individuality are all words that could describe Bruce and the characters he portrays in the movies, but we’re talking about his classic car collection, and most notably his Corvettes. The two cars will be offered up for auction by well-known auctioneers Bonhams & Butterfields October 25th at the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

1957 Corvette Owned by Bruce Willis 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
A gift from his then wife Demi Moore, it received a thorough restoration and retains its original 283cu-in engine delivering 220hp, has Powerglide transmission, front disc brakes, power booster, power steering, and comes with both soft and hard tops.
(Estimated Price: $70,000/$90,000)
 
1967 Corvette Owned by Bruce Willis 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster
Considered the most desirable year-model Corvette in history, this 427cu-in big block offers 435hp and takes off like it’s turbocharged when the second set of Holley 2-barrel carbs comes on line. Like all of Willis’ cars, it has extras like power brakes, power steering, Cragar S/S alloy wheels, and an Alpine 5-CD changer in the glove box with an infrared remote so it doesn’t detract from the otherwise stock appearance or require removal of the original AM-FM radio.
(Estimated Price: $110,000/$150,000)

In addition to the Corvettes, Bruce is also offering up a 1968 Pontiac Firebird 400 Convertible, a 1968 Shelby Mustang GT 500 Convertible and a 1969 Dodge Charger.

Check out Bonhams & Butterfields website for more details. Interested collectors may register to bid in person or remotely via the website or by telephone.


As a matter of full disclosure, I am also partial to 1968 Pontiac Firebirds as that’s the car I bought for my son several years ago. However, reports of his Firebird beating my 66 Corvette in a race have been greatly exaggerated.

Barn Find: 1968 L-88 Corvette Convertible Racer

by Keith Cornett on October 1, 2008

1968 L-88 Corvette Convertible

One of the approximately 80 L-88 Corvettes produced in 1968 was recently unearthed in North Florida by the guys at Proteam Corvettes. Unrestored and most definitely molested, this L-88 street racer is unique as only one or two known L-88 Convertibles were produced with a Rally Red exterior and red interior.

This Corvette was a one-owner car since new until September 24, 2008 and features all the goodies you can expect on an L-88 racer: The M22 4-Speed close ratio heavy duty transmission, J56 special heavy duty brakes, F41 heavy duty suspension, a heavy duty rear end and the sure sign of an original street racer: radio delete! The big block that came with this race-bred convertible is a GM warranty engine.

Proteam is considering invitations for displaying the Corvette before it heads into the shop for a complete restoration. Terry believes these original Corvettes in their “as-found” condition can be an invaluable tool for senior judging seminars. Sure it’s not a Survivor® but it is still a really neat find.

Visit Proteam Corvettes to see over 100 photos of this very cool L-88 Corvette street racer.

Rarest Corvette Small Block: The 1970-72 Corvette ZR1

by Keith Cornett on September 23, 2008

The 1970 Corvette ZR1

Obviously we’re big on Corvette ZR1′s here at CorvetteBlogger because the car has pushed the boundaries of performance compared to the regular Corvette. But we also love classic small block Corvettes as well. So with the help of Proteam Corvette’s Terry Michaelis, we thought we’d combine our interests and travel back in time to take a look at the very first Corvette ZR1, the 1970-72 Street Legal Racer.

Although it would be another 20 years before the Corvette ZR1 would earn the title of King of the Hill, its predecessor set the bar high in terms of performance. In 1970 Chevrolet introduced this limited production radio delete car to the racing world. Dubbed the ZR1 based on the name of its RPO package, this successor to the L88 Corvette came equipped with the potent LT1 350 ci 370 hp small block and all the specialty options that were found on the L88s that were retired the previous year.

In addition to the LT1, the ZR1 package included an M22 rockcrusher 4-speed heavy duty transmission, J56 Heavy duty power brakes, transistorized ignition, special aluminum radiator and a suspension that included special springs, shocks and front and rear stabilizer bars.

Production of the ZR1 was limited to 1970-1972, the same three year time span of the LT1 engine. During that three year run, only 53 cars were ordered with RPO ZR1: 25 in 1970, 8 in 1971 and 20 in 1972. The ZR1′s of the 1970′s are the rarest small block Corvette ever produced.

Identification features of the 1970-72 Corvette ZR1 include:

  • LT-1 engine, suffix CTV-1970, CGY-1971, or CKY-1972,
  • J-56 heavy duty brake package with dual pin front brake calipers (power),
  • F-41 heavy duty suspension package, 7 leaf rear spring, heavy duty shock absorbers, heavy duty 5/8 front sway bar and heavy duty rear spindle struts,
  • M-22 (rockcrusher) transmission,
  • large aluminum radiator with expansion tank (no other LT-1 equipped car has an expansion tank),
  • steel fan shroud, other than 1972’s (most),
  • radio delete (no fenders drilled for antenna). The ZR-1 package could not be ordered with any creature comforts, ie: air conditioning, power windows, power steering, radio, alarm system, rear window defroster, or special trim items like P02 wheel covers.

As an investment, the C3 Corvette ZR-1 is poised for growth, especially those from the first year (1970) where horsepower was at its highest mark. For the cost of a 1967 L71 Big Block, you can own a performance Corvette with a production limited to just 25!

This Corvette ZR1 has been marked down from $149,000 to $130,000 as part of Proteam Corvette’s 911 Emergency Sale. But if you’re interested, you better move fast because the sale ends on September 30th.

Auction Results: Corvettes at Carlisle 2008

by Keith Cornett on September 18, 2008

1967 Corvette Sold at Corvettes at Carlisle 2008

We got the auction results from last month’s Corvettes at Carlisle auction and despite the fact the auction was held on Friday and featured a sales success rate of just 36%, I am going to take a “glass is half full” approach. For the collector with less than deep pockets, the first time Corvette buyer or an enthusiast looking for a decent quality driver, the auction at Corvettes at Carlisle may just be the place to buy your next Corvette.

First the specifics: The auction at Corvettes at Carlisle is not what it once was in year’s past. Since the auction was moved in-house last year, it’s been reduced to a one-day event, and this year it was held on Friday of all days. 80 Corvettes crossed the block and 29 sold, earning a sales success rate of 36%. The 29 Corvettes totaled $731,050 in sales. Although these numbers are comparable to 2007′s auction, total sales were down almost $244,000 from last year’s $974,950.

In an attempt to shake up the auction landscape, Carlisle made some changes this year benefiting both sellers and buyers by offering free consignment as well as waiving bidder registration fees. The fact that Corvettes aren’t selling at Carlisle like the rates of other primarily Corvette auctions is just as much related to seller expectations as to the current market: Sellers are holding on to cars and may be waiting for better times and many buyers are primarily searching for a deal and passing on anything else. The simple fact is that it takes two to move a Corvette at an auction, a motivated seller and a buyer with cash in hand.

But as I look down the list of cars that did sell at this year’s event, I am seeing what appears to be some pretty good deals. So it just may be that auction at Corvettes at Carlisle could very well turn into the enthusiast auction where decent cars are sold for a fair price. Call it the anti-Barrett-Jackson auction. So let’s take a look at some of the cars that did sell.

The top seller was a 1967 Corvette Convertible with a 427/390 hp engine and a close ratio 4-speed transmission. Red with a black top and black stinger hood, this Corvette gets an A in curb appeal. Documented with owner history and the original Protect-O-Plate, this big block sold for $86,500. Well bought and sold.

Looking for a unique piece of history? How about a Supercharged 1954 Roadster. This Corvette features one of less than two dozen McCulloch supercharged engines produced in 1953/54. McCulloch cars are identified by the “SUPERCHARGED” script on the front about the Corvette emblem. This Corvette had some wear, but for the collector looking for something a bit different, $65,000 was enough to take this cool little roadster home.

Finally, the late Chip Miller’s personal 1994 Corvette ZR-1 was offered up by his son Lance at no reserve. This exceptional Polo Green Metallic Corvette ZR-1 is number 200 of only 448 produced in 1994 and features just 11,700 miles. Chip loved the ZR-1 for its unique LT-5 engine which all but guaranteed collectibility in future years. The Corvette was sold for $30,000. Again, this was a great price for a Corvette owned by one of the giants in the hobby.

Corvette Values: 1961 Corvette Roadster

by Keith Cornett on September 2, 2008

1961 Corvette Roadster

RD in New Jersey submitted his 1961 Corvette Roadster to Corvette Values:

1961 Corvette Roadster, VIN 10867S106XXX. Original dual quad 283 ci 245 hp engine, 4-Speed transmission, Fawn Beige with Fawn Beige interior. Auxillary hard top and Fawn Beige soft top. 11,468 miles since restoration in 1999. Corvette is in average street driven condition with paint and fiberglass termed as “good”. The interior’s vinyl seating is also in good condition. All original with no body or engine modifications. No documentation.

Find out how we valued this Corvette after the jump.

1961 Corvette Roadster 1961 Corvette Roadster 1961 Corvette Roadster

The VIN indicates this vehicle was built in March, 1961, well into the 1961 production year. Any factory modifications or engineering changes would have been included during the assembly of this Corvette.

This Corvette Roadster is Fawn Beige in color. There were 1,363 Corvettes painted this color during the 1961 production year. The Fawn Beige paint was unique as it was only available for two production years, 1961 and 1962. The paint can be termed in good condition.

This paint is complimented by a matching Fawn vinyl interior. This interior is in original presentable condition.

The chrome bumpers and bright trim are termed in average condition.

The Corvette is powered by the original 283-245 dual carburetor motor. This motor was one of the optional motors offered in the 1961 production year. It, too, was unique as 1961 was the last year Corvette would offer a desirable optional motor with dual carburetors. The motor is coupled with an optional 4-speed manual transmission with the correct shifter and linkage.

Additional options include the removable hardtop, a neat feature for the winter months and inclement weather.

This Corvette is all ‘stock’ with no body or interior modifications. The wheels have the correct wheel covers and the tires are in good condition.

The owner reports this Corvette was restored in 1999. It has excellent ‘curb appeal’.

We place a value of $53,800 on this 1961 Corvette Roadster. Adding to its value is the one and two year appreciation factor in average price for a 1961 Corvette. The one year appreciation is 6% and the appreciation over a two year period is 15%.

2008 Corvette Pace Cars Now Discounted with Employee Pricing

One of the most successful incentive programs offered by GM is now back and the good news is Corvettes are included. Employee pricing for everyone runs through September 2nd and Corvette buyers can save a significant amount on 2008 Coupes, Convertibles and the Z06.

Usually Corvettes are excluded from most of GM’s incentive programs but due to the number of 2008 Corvettes available on dealers lots – 5,854 as of yesterday – the General wants them sold to make room for the 2009 Corvettes now rolling off of the Bowling Green Assembly line.

The discounts are fairly significant too. In the case of the 505 horsepower Z06 where base prices start around $72,000 the discounts can be close to $10,000 off!

Our friends at Kerbeck Corvette only have a few 2008′s left including a Black Z06 and a Indianapolis 500 Pace Car coupe so if you want to get in on the discounts you better give Dave and the gang a call immediately at 1-877-537-2325. Make sure you tell them CorvetteBlogger sent you!

1962 Gulf Oil Corvette

One of the most dominating Corvettes in auto racing history was sold over the weekend at Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auction for an astounding $1.485 million. Grady Davis’ Gulf Oil Racing Team purchased the Corvette in 1962 from Yenko Chevrolet and the car was campaigned by none other than “The Flying Dentist”, Dr. Dick Thompson in the 1962 SCCA-A Production Class. In 14 races, the Gulf Oil ’62 Corvette finished first in class 12 times including wins at Daytona and Sebring and captured the 1962 A-Production Championship.

The Corvette was sold at the end of the 1962 season to Tony Denman who successfully raced the car throughout 1963, finishing second in class at Daytona while battling against newer Corvettes, Ferrari GTOs and Porsches. At the end of the 1963 season, Denman removed most of the high performance racing parts in order to sell the car as a typical street Corvette.

Almost 20 years later, the Corvette was discovered by the Rev. Mike Ernst who found the Corvette, now painted red, being driven by a college student who was using the Corvette as a daily driver. In researching the Corvette, Ernst found the car came with the rare and highly sought after RPO 687 package which includes the heavy duty brakes, suspension and steering. The Corvette also had a 37-gallon fuel tank which was common for RPO 687 Corvettes that were raced at the time.

Ernst began restoration of the 1962 Corvette in the early 1980′s. The disassembly and paint-stripping process revealed the car to be none other than Dick Thompson’s 1962 Gulf Oil Corvette. Ernst was able to track down Tony Denman who had stored most of the high performance racing parts from the Corvette in his parent’s garage before selling them in 1979. With Denman’s assistance, Ernst tracked down the buyer of the parts and bought them back, reuniting them with the Corvette in May of 1985.

Among the list of parts were Stewart Warner gauges, roll bar, some of the Yenko extra-heavy-duty suspension pieces, aluminum bell housing, separate scatter shield, engine block, cylinder heads, exhaust manifolds, Posi-Traction units, ring and pinions and various hardware. After these racing parts were reassembled, the Corvette was painted its original Ermine White and Blue livery and became the first recipient of the NCRS American Heritage Award.

The 1962 Gulf Oil Corvette returned to the track and raced at Laguna Seca and Palm Springs. It was shown at the Carlisle of Corvettes Racer and Race Car reunion and in 2002 underwent a complete restoration by Doug Prince and Jerry Roman.

In 2005, the Corvette was inducted into the Bloomington Gold Hall of Fame and was displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum and was shown at Corvette’s 50th Anniversary Celebration.

Last year the Corvette underwent another restoration by Kevin Mackay of Corvette Repair in New York.

The 1962 Gulf Oil Corvette features a number of astonishing details including an original Motorola two-way radio, allowing car on-course-to-pit communication. It’s believed to be the first use of such equipment in a race car. Other details include correct Koni shock absorbers, finned heavy-duty brakes, painted steel wheels wearing period-correct Goodyear tires, enormous fiberglass scoops for brake cooling. The driveline reveals its content to consist of original date-stamped parts, including the original matching-numbers engine.

The Corvette is highly documented with a collection of publications that featured articles about the race car and an extensive collection of photos from its racing days. In addition to its NCRS and Bloomington Gold certificates, a bill of sale from Yenko Chevrolet to Grady Davis is also included.

Gooding & Company estimated the sale of the Gulf Oil Corvette would bring between $950,000 – $1,250,000. When the gavel dropped on Saturday, August 17th, the final price was $1,485,000, well above the presale estimates. With its winning pedigree in FIA sanction events which included the 1962 Daytona and Sebring races, the 1962 Gulf Oil Corvette is eligible for any international FIA historical events including the LeMans Classic 24 and Goodwood Revival races.
