It was nearly two weeks ago we heard that Mecum had sold the Sunfire Yellow 1967 Corvette L88 for $2.65 million at their Glendale, Arizona auction, and now we finally have the video showing the sale as it happened. Since it’s not all that often that we can actually watch a Corvette selling for millions, here’s your chance!
As we have previously written, this 1967 Corvette L88 was rare among L88s for being the only one of 20 produced to be offered in Sunfire Yellow. The Corvette was part of < AHREF="httpsd://corvettemike.com">Corvette Mike’s collection and it’s highly documented with Bloomington Gold Certification, an NCRS Top Flight and performance verification awards, and the coveted Triple Diamond Award.
As the sale unfolds in the video, the bid jumps pretty quickly to $2.275 million before things slow down, and you can watch Dana and Frank Mecum hustle and work to get the price to the $2.45 million which lifts the reserve and the car is hammered sold. With the buyers commission, the total price reaches $2.65 million.
The buyer of the Yellow L88 Corvette was Rick Treworgy of Muscle Car City Museum fame who is obviously putting his own auction proceeds to good use.
