Corvettes on eBay: 1999 C5 Corvette Race Car and Trailer Ready for the Track

If you’ve ever wanted a full-on Corvette race car to show people how it’s done at the track, you may want to hurry over to eBay. There is only a little more than two days left in an auction of a turnkey track package including a 1999 C5 Corvette race car and a 24-foot enclosed Pace trailer. The $55,000 asking price includes both, but the seller is willing to sell them separately—$52,000 for the car and $3,000 for the trailer. However, he is not willing to sell the trailer before the car is sold.

Our friends at ProTeam Corvette will be in spotlight this Saturday at the Barrett-Jackson collector car auction in Scottsdale. That’s when a very special Corvette race car with ties to NASCAR will be offered for sale during the “Salon Select 5000 collection”.

We’ve written about ProTeam’s 1953 NASCAR Corvette before which started out as VIN 211 of the first 300 Corvettes built. The first-year Corvette was repurposed as a race car through an internal Chevrolet Shop Order and originally saw action for the 1956 Flying Mile competition on Daytona Beach before entering competition in NASCAR’s International Series for sports cars.

CorvetteBlogger contributor Rick Tavel from Corvetted.com worked with ProTeam Corvette to help write their 50-page flipbook highlighting the research and history of the 1953 NASCAR Corvette and we are fortunate to be able to share some of the important history of this Corvette prior to its auction at Barrett-Jackson.

Last week the Corvette world was all a flutter over the news that the 1956 SR-2 Corvette Racecar – the first purpose-built Corvette racer built by Chevrolet – is being offered for sale.

The sale of the car is being handled by Corvette Mike Vietro for the tidy sum of $6.885 Million. To help support the sale of the car, Corvette Mike produced this video to show off the car and talk about its outstanding history.

The Corvette SR-2 Racer evokes an emotional response from everyone that sees it. At the time of it’s introduction it represented the highest level of automotive racing design and performance. This was the first General Motors “purpose-built” American Sports Racing Car from the Golden Era of Racing. The SR-2 was the combined spirit of two great men in Corvette History and culmination of many great things that were happening at GM in the early to mid-1950’s.
