Corvette Auction Preview: Mecum Denver


Corvette Auction Preview: Mecum Denver

Dana Mecum and the staff from Mecum Auctions are in Denver, CO. this week for a two-day sale featuring 700 vehicles which include 45 Corvettes ranging from a 1957 Roadster to a 2011 Corvette Z06 tuned by Lingenfelter. We turned to our friend Marshall Fancher of Vette-N-Vestments for a preview of the auction and he provided us with the run list as well as some of the cars he would like to bring home if money wasn’t an object.

The Mecum Denver auction offers a little something for everyone whether your tastes are for matching number collector Corvettes or the exotic like a 1985 GTP Corvette Replica. Here’s a few Corvettes highlighted by Vette-N-Vestments:

Lot F170 – a C5 1953 Commemorative Edition:

Lot F170 - a C5 1953 Commemorative Edition

The AAT C5 conversion car has always caught my eye and attention as a unique combination of the old and new. You provide a C5 donor car and $30,000, then AAT rebodies it to the unique body of their design. Only about 200 of these were produced. Probably most still exist today. The majority of the conversions were on a standard C5. This sets this car apart from the majority of conversions by being a ZO6. Probably only a handful of the high performance oriented cars were produced. Also, The mileage of 278 pretty much assures the new owner of getting a brand new C5. We have seen these cars sell for a number of years and prices are from the mid 20’s to 40’s depending on mileage and condition.

Lot F210 – 1967 Corvette Roadster:

Lot F210 - 1967 Corvette Roadster

This Marlboro Maroon Corvette comes with a hardtop and soft top. New Black leather interior, 327/350 HP replacement block, Positraction, Bolt-on wheels, Side pipes , New pads and calipers, AM/FM radio and a functional clock!

Lot S17 – 1982 Collector’s Edition:

Lot S17 - 1982 Collector's Edition

A 1982 Collector’s Edition Corvette Coupe has only 5,600 original miles on the car! It’s been Bloomington Gold Certified and also was awarded a NCRS Top Flight award with a score of 98.8/100. The Corvette is well documented with the original window sticker and the NCRS judging sheets. The Corvette has been stored in a climate controlled garage and the seller says it has a factory installed rare block engine.

Lot S111 – 2011 Carbon Edition ZO6 Tuned by Lingenfelter:

Lot S111 - 2011 Carbon Edition ZO6 Tuned by Lingenfelter

This 2011 Corvette Z06 Carbon Edition is number 119 of 252 Carbon Editions produced. The Lingenfelter upgrade added an Edelbrock supercharger which pushes the performance of the car to 657 hp and 528 ft/lbs of torque. it also features and Akrapovic titanium exhaust.
