The Top 10 Corvette Sales of Barrett-Jackson’s 2013 Scottsdale Auction


The Top 10 Corvette Sales of 2013 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale

All of the pomp and circumstance that is the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction spectacle wrapped up last week and prices were high as expected. After the break is our summary of the top 10 Corvettes sales from the event which includes a pair of new members in the million dollar club.

The star Corvettes of the show were the 1968 Owens/Corning L88 racer and 2014 Corvette VIN 001. We expected these cars to be the top Corvette sellers, but we didn’t expect them to end up in the same garage. Both cars as well as the Guy Fieri C6 and Dan Akerson’s C1 are now owned by NASCAR’s Rick Hendrick.

The top 10 Corvettes consist of a variety of different cars. You’ve got the aforementioned L88 racer and C7 VIN 1, but there’s also 4 tricked out customs, 2 celebrity cars, and 2 restored big blocks – one a mighty 1969 L88 coupe and the other a delicious triple black 1965 396 convertible.

To land on this top 10 list you needed to plunk down at least $187,000 or to purchase all of them it would have cost you a whopping $4.28 million.
