Private Collection Offering Nine Corvettes from 1962-1970 at Mecum Chicago


If money was no object, what would your dream Corvette collection include?

Well, for this writer, it would include one (at least) of every year Corvette ever made, starting in 1953 and continuing until the 2020 mid-engine due any day (hopefully).

That’s probably never going to happen for me unless I hit the lottery, unfortunately.

But that doesn’t keep a fellow from dreaming, does it? In fact, I’m not greedy. There’s actually a pretty unusual private collection going on the block at Mecum Chicago set for Oct. 25-27 that would keep me satisfied – and it would only require winning a small lottery of, say, less than $1 million.

Mecum reports that it will be auctioning off this collection that includes one example of every year from 1962 to 1970 – to some die-hard enthusiasts, the best Corvettes ever made. We wouldn’t necessarily go that far, but we definitely wouldn’t mind having a garage filled with these numerically ordered Corvettes.

All of the cars appear to be 4-speeds, but with a nice variety of engines. How about a red 1962 convertible with a 327/340 engine, a red 1963 split window coupe with a 327/300, a blue 1964 convertible with a 327/300, a yellow 1965 convertible with a 327/350, a yellow 1966 convertible with a 327/350, a red 1967 convertible with a mighty 427/435, a silver 1968 convertible with a 427/435, a yellow 1969 convertible with a 350/350, and a blue 1970 convertible with a 350.

Oddly enough, the same collection also includes a red 1929 Ford Model A Roadster with a small-block V8 – and an automatic transmission!
