Mecum’s final auction of the year will be taking place this Friday and Saturday in Kansas City at the Kansas City Convention Center. Forty-four Corvettes are on the auction dockett and along with a host of classics and near classics you find at any auction, Mecum has included these two Karl Kustom C6 Corvettes.
Many Corvette enthusiasts believe the Mid-year Corvettes of the sixties had the best looking body styles out of all the generations, but today’s Corvette provides the best technological platform for comfort, ride and performance. Karl Kustom Corvettes believe that you can have both and so they created the Karl Kustom Corvettes ’63 Coupe and ’67 Vette.
These two body styles recreate the best design elements of the sixties Corvettes: Split windows on the ’63 and Stinger hoods on the ’67. Both styles have the classic side vents, chrome bumpers and badging you would find on the originals. Karl Kustom Corvettes say’s their cars are built to modern standards with fit and finish being one of the elements that sets them apart from others.
Lot #91.1 features a 2009 Corvette with the ’67 Vette body style. Painted Crystal red with a two-tone interior, you get the look and style of a midyear on a C6 platform with factory GM warranty.
Lot #95.1 is a 2008 Corvette with the Karl Kustom 1963 Corvette coupe body. This version is a bit more interesting with recent news that the Split Window would be returning on the C7 Corvette. Could this be somewhat representative of what the future holds?
Both of these Corvettes are Mecum TV Star Cars and their sales will be televised Saturday on HD Theater. Visit Mecum Auctions for details.
Thanks for tip, George!
