Earlier this week I broke the news that the Corvettes at Carlisle auction was being reduced to just a Saturday-only auction. Since we are one day out from that event, I thought it would be appropriate to look at several of the cars that have already been consigned and ready to sell.
1963 Corvette Coupe
My top pick for the show is the 1963 Corvette Z06 Coupe (Lot C021). The Silver Blue Corvette, already desirable due to its split window configuration is just 1 of 199 Corvettes to have the Z06 option and 1 of 63 to have the NO3 36 gallon “tanker” option. The Corvette is a matching numbers car with correctly dated 327 ci 360 hp fuel injected motor. The odometer reads 89,000 miles, but 0 miles have been put on the Corvette since 1973.The Corvette has both NCRS Top Flight and Bloomington Gold certificates.

1967 Corvette Convertible
This 1967 Corvette will probably not sell for the highest price of six 1967 Corvettes to go though the show, but it’s certainly one of the nicest we’ve seen on the Carlisle List. The Marina Blue Corvette Convertible is powered by a 427 ci 400 hp coupled to a Powerglide transmission. Documented with the tank sticker, this Corvette has a host of options including Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Side Exhaust and Rally Wheels on Red Line tires. It received a Bloomington Gold Certificate back in 2002. Click here to view the Auction Description page.
1999 Mallett 435 Corvette Coupe
Finally, what would Carlisle be without a Corvette from the late co-founder of Corvettes at Carlisle Chip Miller. Chip’s 1999 Mallett 435 is selling at no reserve. Featuring a Mallett 435 Conversion, the Black on Black C5 has 500 hp. Only 17,200 miles are on the Corvette, and you can bet that it has “never seen rain”. The Corvette’s Mallett conversion includes a 6.1 liter 372 CI V8 engine, Long tube headers, and body emblems with the “Mallett 435″ logo. A very nice tuner Corvette with a pedigree of having been owned by one the greats in the Corvette hobby. Click here to view the Auction Description page.
