No Sale! $1.25 Million Not Enough to Buy First 1967 L88 Corvette

Update
I have been informed by several readers that the first L88 Corvette did sell at $1.25 million at the Mecum at Monterey auction. A review of the mecum.com results confirms this. I apologize for the error.

The first documented L88 Corvette sold at the Mecum at Monterey auction yesterday afternoon for $1,250,000. The mid year was the first documented 427/430 hp Corvette that was campaigned by Tony DeLorenzo in the SCCA A Production class. Years later the Corvette was restored and won awards from Bloomington Gold and the NCRS.

Alice Cooper's Three Fender '61 Corvette Sells for $78,000 AUD

This 1961 Ermine White Corvette once owned by Rock legend Alice Cooper was sold this weekend for $78,000 Australian Dollars ($65,481 USD) at the 2010 Shannons Melbourne Winter Classic Auction. The Corvette comes with a signed Fender Squier Guitar, hence the “three fender” nickname. Equipped with a 283 ci V8 and a three speed automatic powerglide, the Corvette has recently been overhauled with new shocks, brakes, tires and other parts. Because the Corvette is older than 15 years, it is not subject to RHD-conversion rules as long as the car is used for personal transportation. Rock on!
