Another Barrett-Jackson auction is upon us as Craig, Steve and the crew of auctioneers are in Las Vegas for their 8th annual salen in Sin City at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The hammer will start falling tomorrow and the auction runs through Saturday.
Once again we turn to Marshall Fancher and the Corvette auction experts at VetteNVestments for a preview of Corvettes available this weekend:
Forty-two Corvettes are being offered at the upcoming Barrett Jackson auction in Las Vegas this week. Some very interesting lots seem to be special and remarkable, as I have listed below.
One of 80 factory-built 1968 Corvette L88 coupes. This two-owner car has a period-correct drivetrain and underwent a 1978 frame-off restoration. The 427/430hp engine was rebuilt with GM parts in 1985. Accident-free and garage-kept. 24,760 actual miles.

This 1966 Corvette 427/425hp with M21 close-ratio 4-speed has been with its current owner since 1971. Has recently undergone a frame-off restoration and every effort was made to keep it as stock and original as the day it was ordered from Chevrolet.
