We’ve all heard of trailer queens, but this might be the ultimate!

Chris Graff decided to give his father Hank a very unique retirement gift: a boxed Corvette. But this wasn’t a 1/25 scale model in a box; this was a real 1954 Corvette on a trailer with a custom-made 8.5-foot-tall by 24-foot-long box built around it that makes it appear as if the Jolly Green Giant has a new toy to play with.

The Bid Goes On for the Featured Corvettes at Mecum's Seattle Auction

Overall Mecum’s first trip to Seattle was met with an over flow of enthusiastic bidders and collectors. Mecum obviously worked overtime to offer their customers a varied assortment of excellent collector cars. When the curtain came down Mecum had to be pleased with their initial foray into the Pacific Northwest setting a world’s record for a muscle car when a 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda was hammered for $3.5M. It was obviously a muscle car market since it definitely was not a Corvette market.

Mecum put together a dynamite docket of outstanding investment level Corvettes for their introductory event in the Northwest and though there was strong bidding for a some of the Corvettes, the majority of bids did not meet the consignor’s reserves and 65% of all Corvettes offered over the two day event went unsold and none of the four featured Corvettes sold.

Another indication of disappointing results for Corvettes was the fact only one Corvette was able to make the top-ten list, a 1958 restomod. That is almost unheard of for the world’s largest Corvette seller who typically has almost half of the top ten occupied by America’s sports car.

The one-of-a-kind 1957 Corvette SS must be wondering what it has to do to have some fun on the racetrack.

Fifty-seven years ago, the SS made its debut at Sebring but only managed to cover 23 laps before having to head to the garage because of technical problems. Unfortunately, it was to be the only competition for the SS because General Motors and other automakers placed a self-imposed ban on racing competition after several deaths on the track.

Corvettes on eBay: 1957 Chevrolet Engineering Fuelie Corvette for $6.5 Million

The headline is not a typo or a joke — a price for anything that includes seven digits is a serious matter and especially so for a car that hasn’t been started since 1967. Our friends at roadtrippers.com noticed this ad on eBay and understandably wondered if the ad and the car were legitimate. Certainly it’s not every day that you see a price that high on eBay, but it’s not even close to the highest eBay sale on record—that belongs to a Frank Mulders designed, 405-foot yacht that sold for $168,000,000 in 2006.
