Mecum Auctions has kicked off the 2021 collector car season with their annual colossal Kissimmee, Florida sale. The action began on Thursday, January 7th, and will run through Saturday, January 16th. We’ve already shown you a few of the Corvettes up for grabs, but now it’s time for a rapid-fire look at 12 more of our favorites.
The current docket has 233 Corvettes listed with all generations well represented. The 2nd and 3rd generation cars make up nearly 50% of the Corvettes in Kissimmee with 62 and 53 available examples respectively. Interestingly, there are also 6 2020 Corvettes for sale in Kissimmee including the final production 2020 car. Here’s how the generations stack up:
- C1: 37 Corvettes
- C2: 62 Corvettes
- C3: 53 Corvettes
- C4: 39 Corvettes
- C5: 14 Corvettes
- C6: 17 Corvettes
- C7: 4 Corvettes
- C8: 6 Corvettes
Perusing the docket, we see all of Corvette’s greatest hits. The early cars are represented by fuelies and restomods. The midyears include the first L88 yet again, Mickey Thompson’s personal Z06, and too many big blocks to count. In the 3rd generation we more L88’s, a yellow LS6 convertible, and some nice, low mile later C3’s. The C4’s and C5’s consist of ZR1’s and Z06’s while the C6’s feature some nice Grand Sports, pace cars, and a 60th anniversary 427 convertible. The quartet of C7’s includes a Callaway Stingray. Pick your favorite color among the C8 sextuplets by choosing from red, orange, silver, black, or white.
