California Chevrolet Dealer Marks Up A 2015 Corvette Z06 by $49,995

Marking up Corvettes is nothing new.

If you were around in 1978, you no doubt remember how asking prices of the Corvette Indy Pace Car soared to astronomical levels after being spotlighted in the infamous “Wall Street Journal” article.

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.

Now some owners will be able to take it to the next level and actually build the engine that will reside under the hood of their 2015 Z06!

Unique 1965 Corvette Big Tank Coupe to Cross the Block at Mecum's Kissimmee Auction

Mid-year Corvette coupes with the 36.5 gallon gas tank option are pretty rare, there having been a total of only 210 built in the 1963 – 1967 model years. But the 1965 Big Tank coupe offered at Mecum’s Kissimmee Auction at the Osceola Heritage Park in (where else?) Kissimmee, Fla. January 16-24 is unique because of its comfort and convenience options not usually found on Big Tank Vettes.
