Rare, low-mileage Corvettes always catch the eyes of fiberglass fans everywhere, especially twin turbo B2Ks from the stable of Callaway Cars Inc. Right now, as we speak, eBay has for sale a Callaway B2K convertible with an astonishing 3,720 miles on the odometer. We’re now more than halfway through the 10-day auction with a starting bid of $40,000 and there have been zero additional bids. This may be your chance to throw your hat into the Callaway ring with a bid or two.
Special Edition Corvettes
Back in 2007 when this blog was still in its infancy, we attended one of our first live auctions as an official Corvette Blogger to cover some of the really cool Corvettes offered for sale. Hosted by RM Auctions, the December 2007 sale of the Al Wiseman Collection contained several prominent Corvettes including Zora Arkus-Duntov’s Harvest Gold 1955 Corvette Roadster.
But the real star of the auction, other than Val Kilmer’s Batmobile from Batman Forever, was a unique 1965 cut-away Corvette display created by General Motors to show off the inner-workings of the Corvette Sting Ray at its annual auto shows.
The 2014 Corvette Stingray Premiere Edition was offered as a special way to kick off the newest generation of Chevy sports car.
If being the owner of one of just 500 Premiere Edition Coupes isn’t special enough for you, you have a chance to bump up your exclusivity a notch with this “one-of-a-kind” P.E. being offered now on eBay.
For model year 2004, the fifth generation Corvette (C5) would be making its last trip around the dance floor. Introduced in 1997, the C5 was then all new from the ground up—new chassis and suspension, new body styling, new rear-mounted transaxle, new all aluminum 5.7 liter V8 engine and a new interior.
One of just 41 Big Tank Corvette Coupes produced in 1965 will be on the block at the Hollywood Wheels Amelia Island Select auction in Florida March 12-15.
This silver over black coupe comes with a rich though dated pedigree, too, including Bloomington Gold Special Collection in 1989 and 1995, Bloomington Certified in 1987, National NCRS Top Flight award in 1993,and Chevy Vettefest Triple Crown award in 2004.
Some lucky person will soon have an opportunity to become the new owner of a verified 1969 Corvette L88 convertible.
But it won’t come cheap. A similar Le Mans Blue example that could trace its lineage all the way back to the original Georgia owner recently sold for a whopping $825,000.
This L88, ruled the real deal by experts David Burroughs and Tim Thorpe, will be on the block at the Hollywood Wheels Amelia Island Select auction set in Florida for March 12-15.
Malcolm Konner was a prominent Corvette dealer from the 1960s to the early 1980s who claimed to be “The World’s Largest Corvette Dealer” in his newspaper ads.
“Because we sold and serviced so many Corvettes,” Konner’s son RJ Konner told Corvette Magazine, “we were an invaluable resource for Chevrolet. They had a technician or engineer at the dealership 80 percent of the time to troubleshoot and help evaluate problems that came up in the field.
Earlier this week the 1956 Corvette SR-2 that just went on the market for $6.885 Million made a promotional stop in Scottsdale, AZ. The former racer was on display at Scottsdale Sport and Classic Autocars for viewing before the start of the major auctions and it was the guest of honor at a reception help by Corvette Mike Vietro who is helping in the sale of the car.
