Corvette Auction Results: 2015 Mecum Spring Classic in Indianapolis


This Guest Post contributed by Marshall Fancher, Editor of www.VetteNVestments.com

This was the 28th year of the always spectacular Dana Mecum Annual Spring Classic Auction at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. A total of 1,329 cars crossed the block. 783 of those cars found new owners. This equates to a respectable 58% sell through rate for the overall auction.

Mecum does a fantastic job at creating excitement about special cars, and they did not disappoint. These cars did what we thought were very strong and honest prices, considering the fantastic quality of each example.

1958 Fuelie Collection Heading to Mecum Indy

When it comes to our Corvettes, enthusiasts will collect just about anything. Some collections focus on rare, low production cars while others feature only low mile cars.

Coming up in Indianapolis this weekend, Mecum will be selling a collection of 1958 fuel injected Corvettes – one in each color available in 1958.

1964 Fuel Injected Corvette Garage Find

Here’s a garage find C2 Sting Ray with an interesting past.

After being driven sporadically by the owners for a couple of years, this 1964 Corvette coupe has been sitting in a garage on jack stands since sometime in early 1973. The long-time owner died earlier this summer, and the car was dug out from the garage and sent all the way across the country to a fellow named Rick F on the West Coast.

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.

Corvettes on Craigslist: Barn Find 1961 Corvette Fuelie

We’re not sure why these barn find Corvettes with psychedelic paint jobs are all of a sudden being found after years of storage, we’re just glad they are! After posting the 1965 Corvette Coupe from California yesterday that’s still available on ebay for $22K, we now have this Craigslist ad for a 1961 barn find Corvette Fuelie that was parked in 1984.
