I might of went a little overboard as I was putting together this week’s award-winning image gallery featuring 1963-67 Corvettes, but I kept finding great pictures of second generation Corvettes to share. So for this week, we’ll have a slightly expanded Midyear Monday photo gallery to start off the week.
If you’re a big Corvette restomod fan and you also love the looks of the classic split window coupes, listen up — eBay has a car that might make you reach for your checkbook. The mint condition restomod coupe with only 2,124 miles on the clock is based on a 2009 Z06 coupe and wears a custom body by Karl Kustom Corvettes resembling the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray split window coupe. The interior has been refinished by Karls for a more classic look of the original SWC.
It’s the last Friday in September which means it’s “Black Friday” here at CorvetteBlogger.com. Here’s our salute to Black Corvettes with a random photo gallery made up of 32 Corvettes spanning seven generations.
Finally made it!
The theme for this year’s FunFest was “Vets with Vettes” and so not only was it great to see all the Corvettes out in the fields but to have the opportunity to talk with our nation’s veterans and see all the patriotic displays including the traveling Vietnam Veteran’s wall memorial was something we’ll never forget.
Here’s a short “Now & Then” documentary by Graeme Jenvey that’ll definitely put a smile on a Corvette enthusiast’s face.
In the six-and-a-half minute video, a long-time Corvette lover named Joe Gallo shares his thoughts about his 1965 Corvette Sting Ray, then contrasts it with a 2014 Stingray.
We’ve all heard about the used car that was only driven on Sundays by a little old lady.
Well, here’s a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe that apparently really was driven by an older lady throughout its history before it was parked in a barn in 1973 and left there for the next 41 years.
The barn find was listed on eBay and reached $45,544 before the bidding ended early today.
For a Corvette seller and a Corvette buyer, the Lucky Collector Car Auction held this past August 30 & 31 just outside of Tacoma, Washington was appropriately named. The lucky seller went home with a large check while the lucky buyer is the new owner of a numbers matching 1963 Corvette fuelie roadster.
If you’re looking for originality, uniqueness, and rarity, then this 1967 Corvette COPO convertible might be for you.
In case you’re not familiar with COPO, it stands for Central Office Production Order. Basically, it allowed Chevrolet top dogs and a few dealers to order new vehicles with special features not usually found on the ordinary production vehicles.
This particular Corvette is one of only five known to be painted with Silver Pearl exterior paint and a red interior, a combo not available to ordinary folks.
