Blue Chip 1967 L88 Corvette to be Featured at Mecum Auction in Seattle

Now that Mecum has wrapped up their 27th Annual Spring Classic in Indianapolis, Corvette enthusiasts are looking forward to the latest addition to Mecum’s already extensive schedule of collector car auctions, this one in Seattle. And the reason for the anticipation is that one of the “bluest” of blue chip Corvettes will cross the block on Saturday June 14th, one of only twenty 1967 L88′s ever produced. Rarely do these special Corvettes ever change hands and when they do a world’s record price is usually at risk of being broken.

Though only a portion of the consignments have been listed at this point it appears that Mecum has cornered the low mile ZR1 market and will be sending them across the block.

The hottest Corvette in the collector market is the epic L88, and it’s just not hot, it is scorching. And while Corvette values overall have been on a strong run over the past two years with auction prices among the strongest of all automotive brands, the second and third generation Corvette L88 values are in a league of their own.

And one of the finest third generation L88′s in the world is going to cross the block on May 3rd in Worldwide Auctioneers Houston Classic Auction. The Riverside Gold 1969 coupe is an original survivor with less than 2600 miles. But before we look at what makes this Corvette so appealing and what it is likely to sell for, let’s take a look at other L88 Corvettes and what is happening in the market.

The last time we saw the 1954 Pizza Man Corvette racer it was crossing Mecum’s red carpet in St. Charles, Illinois in October of 2012. Back then it was a no sale after a high bid of $120,000. Recently it showed up on eBay still for sale. The “World’s Fastest Six Cylinder Corvette” beat up on the competition from 1962 to 1971 with Earl Britt behind the wheel.

1967 McNamara Corvette Sells for $725K at Mecum

Enthusiasts were treated to three days of excitement last week when Mecum presented their second major collector car auction of 2014, April 10th through the 12th in Houston.

The heavily promoted prototype Ford GT40 was hammered down at $7M and TV viewers got to see it on live TV. It was the highest price ever hammered down for an American car being broadcast on “live” TV. And though that was impressive, it was actually more exciting to watch former Viet Nam veteran Don McNamara’s pristine, 2997-mile Corvette hammered down for $725K ($797.5 including commissions). Along with the McNamara Corvette, Mecum sold 61 of the 101 Corvettes consigned, a strong sell through for Corvettes.
