During its 5-year model run between 1987 and 1991, Callaway assembled over 500 total cars under the RPO B2K moniker. The 1991 model year was the swan song for RPO B2K and changes were subtle. The output of the twin-turbo boosted 350ci LT1 was bumped to 403hp and 575 lb.-ft of torque compared to the base L98’s 250hp. New ducts on the hood helped channel fresh air into the intercoolers.
This stunning yellow Callaway roadster is currently up for sale on Bring a Trailer. Production numbers for 1991 indicate that 62 B2K’s were built that year (though the listing states 59). The listing also states that it’s one of 25 Aerobody cars and it’s the only yellow one. The odometer reads 17,100 miles.
The car is completely documented including both the GM and Callaway window stickers, the build sheet, and a slew of receipts. The seller also shows a clean Carfax tracking the car from new to its current home in Oregon. It looks like the car was ordered through Corvette Mike in California and then delivered through Malcolm Konner in New Jersey based on the paperwork in the ad. The total cost when new was a tick over $98,000.
In addition to all the Callaway goodies the car is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, dual power sport seats, and a matching body-color hardtop among other features.
From perusing the photos, the car appears to be in #2 condition. The condition of the engine compartment and chassis appear to consistent with a 17,000-mile car. You can see evidence that this car has been driven. Inside we see some wear on the seats and other areas which we’d expect from a car of this vintage. Personally, we’d expect a car of this caliber to be cleaner top-to-bottom than this one is. As always, though, we encourage potential buyers to view the car in person rather than just relying on photos.
Bidding is currently approaching $24,000 as we type this, and the auction ends roughly 5 days from now. If our Motor City Bureau garage wasn’t already full (and bank account empty) we’d be all over this thing trying to bring it home.
