Via CorvetteVideos.TV

A rare 1957 Corvette featuring the 283/283 hp (RPO 579E) fuel injection sold for $290,000 at Mecum’s 2013 Dallas Auction.

This Onyx Black roadster is one of only 43 “airbox” Corvettes produced in 1957 which offered a new fuel injection system helping the 283 Cubic inch engine attain the mythical “one-horsepower-per-cubic-inch” threshold for the first time.

The ’57 Airbox Corvette was part of the Buddy Herin collection which also saw the record-breaking $3.2 million sale of the 1967 L88 Corvette Sting Ray at the same auction.

The good news is that no one was injured.

The bad news is that E.H. Martin’s beautiful 1962 Corvette was destroyed Wednesday night when the garage in which it was parked caught on fire.

Mecum's Dallas Event – Corvette Buyers and Sellers Nirvana

Dana Mecum’s favorite car has to be the Chevrolet Corvette, especially if solely based on the number of outstanding high dollar cars that were hammered down during the last four days of his third Dallas auction.

It was clearly evident that Corvettes carried the four-day auction and were the car of choice for collectors where a new record price was paid for a Corvette ($3.2M, a 1967 L88, fully documented former NHRA record holder and the only ’67 L88 to retain its original body panels).

Of the 172 Corvettes that crossed the block 106 were sold, a 61% sell through rate, for a combined hammer price of $9.106M. Though some buyers were able to grab some excellent bargains during the first two days of the sale, the last two days saw spirited bidding and prices well above average. Almost twenty Corvettes were hammered down above $100K. It seemed as though most restored second generation cars were selling between $100K to $150K and if the car had any rare options it was selling close to or above $200K.
