1953 Corvette VIN 220 to be Offered Saturday at Worldwide's 2015 Houston Classic Auction

Only 300 Corvettes were built in their first year of production in 1953.

That’s why it’s always exciting to see any example of this ground-breaking Chevrolet sports car go on the block.

Number 220 has just been restored by 1953 Corvette restoration expert Brett Henderson of Pendleton, Ind., and it’s now being offered for sale at Worldwide Auctioneer’s Houston Classic auction which takes place on Saturday, April 25th.

The hottest Corvette in the collector market is the epic L88, and it’s just not hot, it is scorching. And while Corvette values overall have been on a strong run over the past two years with auction prices among the strongest of all automotive brands, the second and third generation Corvette L88 values are in a league of their own.

And one of the finest third generation L88’s in the world is going to cross the block on May 3rd in Worldwide Auctioneers Houston Classic Auction. The Riverside Gold 1969 coupe is an original survivor with less than 2600 miles. But before we look at what makes this Corvette so appealing and what it is likely to sell for, let’s take a look at other L88 Corvettes and what is happening in the market.
