Corvettes on Craigslist: 1958 Drag Corvette


Back in 2012, a video from Hemmings TV introduced us to Tony Meehan and his souped-up 1958 Corvette that was originally owned by his late father. It was a nice story about being able to restore and then drive a car that his father used to own.

Fast forward to December 2015 and browsing our local Tampa Bay craigslist for Corvettes, we found Tony’s distinctive white 1958 Corvette drag car for sale.

ProTeam Corvette: 1968 L88 Corvette Has Documented Drag Racing History

Our friends at ProTeam Corvette are hosting a Tax Time Sale which has 14 rare and highly coveted Corvettes discounted from their regular prices. The sale pricing is in effect through April 15th at Noon or upon notice by Pro Team.

One of the Corvettes on Terry’s list that caught our eye was an unrestored 1968 L88 Corvette Convertible with a drag racing history.

TITLE

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.

World's Fastest Street Legal Car Racing to Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

Back in 2009 we first told you about Rod Saboury’s wicked street legal 1963 Corvette drag car. The 2,600 hp monster will run the quarter mile in a mere 6.75 seconds at 209 mph. Then, in late 2012, the car showed up on eBay where it failed to sell in October. Now you’ve got another chance to score this sick whip when it crosses the Barrett-Jackson auction block next week in Scottsdale, Az.
