Estate Sale Planned for Corvette Hall of Famer Dick Guldstrand

Estate Sale Planned for Corvette Hall of Famer Dick Guldstrand


If you’re a fan of Dick Guldstrand, also known as “Mr. Corvette” to enthusiasts, then you might want to catch a plane to California later this week.

An estate sale for the auto racing legend is planned over the next two weekends in North Hollywood, CA. This weekend (September 10-11) will see Guldstrand’s household items sold while next weekend (September 17-18) will feature the sale of his racing and Corvette memorabilia.

No other details are available at the website for the sale, other than this short paragraph:

“We are planning a two part sale, one for his home content, the other for his memorabilia and are still preparing for this sale. Please check back for more details and photos.”

It feels like we’ve been in a whirlwind of Corvette events the last few weeks as we’ve shared special editions of Midyear Monday from The Woodward Dream Cruise and the 2016 Corvettes at Carlisle.

So it’s equally great that a three day weekend helps kick off our September but we’re not going to rest on this Monday. Nope, our readers have made it clear that they love Midyear Mondays as much as we do. And so for your Labor Day enjoyment, we have cranked out another fine addition with 44 Corvettes from 1963-1967!

And since we are back to our regulary scheduled Midyear Monday photo gallery, we are also back to sharing photos of your Midyear Corvettes. Do you have a C2 Corvette you would like to share? Feel free to email it to me at [email protected].

Although I am partial to the slighty wet Black ’66 (what tropical storm?) as my favorite in this week’s gallery, you’ve got plenty of choices so let us know and be sure to share this page on Twitter and Facebook.

We met up with Mike on Friday morning and used the opportunity to grab an interview with the Corvette seller. Our interviews with Mike are becomming an annual event since we first met at Carlisle three years ago.
