Special Edition 2012 Chevy 100-Year Anniversary Corvette to be Auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach

This morning we were tipped about a “mystery” Corvette or Camaro that will be auctioned this weekend at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach. After digging around the interwebs and firing off a bunch of emails, it was our tweet to Corvette PR rep David Caldwell who confirmed that the 2012 Chevrolet on Barrett-Jackson’s run list was indeed a special edition Corvette.

Barrett-Jackson wrapped up their week-long collector car auction last Sunday and when all was said and done, Corvette sales totaled $10.89 million. Prices seem to returning to “normal” (if you can classify a Barrett-Jackson sale as normal) after a couple of down years due to the poor economy. But most of all, we liked the selection of the 138 Corvettes available which was the highest we can remember at the Scottsdale auction in some time.

[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson 2011: 2011 Le Mans Anniversary Corvette Z06 Sells for $210,000

The Corvette Museum’s Motorsport Park project got a shot in the arm on Friday night following the sale of the 2011 Le Mans Anniversary Corvette Z06 at the 2011 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. The sale of the White/Blue one-off VIN #001 Corvette Z06 for $210,000 to NASCAR team owner Rick Hendrick was probably a little lower than what the NCM was looking for, but every little bit helps!

[VIDEO] Barrett-Jackson 2011: 1973 Corvette for Chip Miller Foundation Nets $31,000

The Corvettes at Carlise show is one of the premier annual Corvette shows for owners and enthusiasts alike. The founder of the Carlisle shows, Chip Miller, was one of the giants in our hobby and everyone was pretty shocked when he lost his life nearly 7 years ago to a rare disease known as Amyloidosis. Today, the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation helps raise awareness and funds to find a cure for the disease. The great folks at Barrett-Jackson stepped up on Wednesday evening and this 1973 Red Corvette was auctioned with the proceeds to go to finding a cure for Amyloidosis.

Our final preview of select Barrett-Jackson Corvettes ends with Lot #1256. This rare 1971 LS6 Coupe will cross the block on Saturday, January 22nd live on Speed TV. An LS6 Corvette is more rare than a L88 equipped Corvette. Only 188 cars escaped St. Louis with the 425hp, 454 CI motor compared to 216 L88’s.

Our 2011 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Corvette preview switches generations now to focus on Lot #1010.2, an unrestored, highly awarded 1967 convertible. Big block C2’s are no strangers to the B-J stage. We see numerous finely restored examples cross their brightly lit auction block at each event. What sets this ’67 apart from the others are its low miles, well preserved condition, and multiple judging awards. We’ll watch this roadster cross the auction block on Friday night, January 21st on Speed TV.

Each January marks the annual festival known as the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Collector Car Auction. This year’s sale is significant as its Barrett-Jackson’s 40th anniversary event. Support events kicked off January 9th and hit full speed on January 15th. Included among the 1,000+ cars selling at no reserve are roughly 130 corvettes. Over the next few days we’ll take a look and some of the more significant Vettes crossing the block at Barrett-Jackson.

First up we’ll take a look at a couple of 1981 Corvette Coupes – Lots 441 and 441.1. Right now you’re probably wondering why we’re featuring a pair of 1981 Corvettes – especially 2 beige colored ones. If you caught B-J’s 2010 Las Vegas event, you’ll probably recall seeing this duo as they sold for charity for $300,000. The winning bidder promptly donated the cars back and here they are again for Scottsdale 2011.
