March 2015 Corvette Sales

General Motors posted the monthly sales figures for March 2015 this week and we have great news for Corvette fans. The C7 Corvette – buoyed by sales of the 2015 Corvette Z06 – had its second best month ever and the highest sales totals since the very first month the C7 Corvette Stingray became available in October 2013.

For the month of March 2015, GM delivered 3,785 Corvettes which was an 8.8% gain over the 3,480 Corvettes sold during the same time period in 2014. Year to date (January-March 2015), a total of 8,517 Corvettes have been sold which is a 4.1% increase over the 8,179 Corvettes delivered during the same time in 2014.

1962 Gulf Oil Corvette Racer to be Sold at RM Sotheby's Texas Auction

Paul Andrews and his son, Chris, have spent years building one of the world’s best collections of classic vehicles.

Some 75 of their cars and a wide assortment of memorabilia will be auctioned off May 2 in Fort Worth, Texas by RM Sotheby’s.

One of the cars to be auctioned is their 1962 Corvette Gulf Oil race car – with no reserve. Estimated value of the car is $2 million to $2.75 million.

Now they’re even happier after already celebrating their first win with the Corvette last weekend at the Optima Ultimate Street Car event in Fort Worth, Texas!
