Corvettes on eBay: Bill Mitchell-linked 1980 Corvette for $250,000

Corvettes on eBay: Bill Mitchell-linked 1980 Corvette for $250,000


1980 Corvettes and I go back a long way. In fact, my first ‘Vette was a red on red ’80 model purchased in 1983 from a Delta Air Lines pilot. I sold it in 1985 with less than 20,000 miles on the clock and have wished ever since I had kept it.

But my “historic 1980 Corvette” doesn’t mean much compared to this 1980 custom Corvette being offered for sale on eBay for the whopping “Buy It Now” price of $250,000. (I sold mine in 1983 for just $11,000.)

Corvettes have always been described as a work of art by enthusiasts.

This C7 Stingray definitely lives up to the title with its psychedelic stripes of yellow, orange, red, and purple, but would you do this to your own car?

Tom Falbo’s 1967 L89 Corvette Hammers Twice, Sells for $167,000

Tom Falbo's 1967 L89 Corvette Hammers Twice, Sells for $167,000


Some people thought it was risky for the Tom Falbo Collection to be offered at no reserve during the Leake Auction Company event over the weekend in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma State Fairgrounds.

But in the end, the Corvette-dominated collection wound up selling for a total of about $4.5 million (hammer prices), which was substantially more than Leake President Richard Sevenoaks said he had expected. Falbo himself, who watched via the Internet, was also pleased with the results.

The collection included an L89 1967 Corvette, one of just 16 such Sting Rays produced, that actually sold twice.

The L89 was the first Falbo car offered on Saturday and apparently sold for $180,000. After 21 more Falbo Corvettes had crossed the block, the L89 came back, though.

Sevenoaks said during the first time the L89 was offered, virtually simultaneous bids came from someone in the building and someone on the Web. The winning bidder, who was in the room, denied he had placed the high bid, but Sevenoaks said several people agreed with the auction staff that the man had actually done so. Nevertheless, the car had to make its way back to the block and wound up selling for $167,000 on the second go-round.

The L89 was actually the second Falbo Corvette forced to make an encore appearance on Saturday. Earlier, a green 1967 427 coupe had to repeat after it was discovered that the original buyer, offering $160,000, had not registered to bid. The second trip to the block saw a winning bid of $157,500.

The Falbo Collection included 40 Corvettes and 60 other vehicles, all being offered at no reserve. Nevertheless, two other 1967 coupes sold for more than $100,000 – one at $117,500 and the other at $110,000.

Falbo’s low-mileage 2005 Ford GT brought a whopping $276,000.

We searched high and low on the Web for a photo of David Cassidy with his 2009 Corvette but had to settle for this pic of the former teen idol sitting on the hood of a white early 1970s Corvette.

Cassidy is in the news, not for a long-awaited album for his teeny-bopper fans (now in their 50s and 60s, by the way), but because he’s having to sell his 2009 Corvette to pay down some debts.
