46 Corvettes Bring $2.5 Million at Barrett-Jackson
If you missed the 4th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction last week in Las Vegas, you missed out on some incredible Corvettes that crossed the auction block. With 46 of the model in the auction, Barrett-Jackson saw over $2.5 million in sales from the five representative generations of Corvettes, including over $150,000 that came from the sale of just one incredible car. Thanks to CorvetteBlogger for bringing us the news.
Last week we reported on the cars that would be making appearances in Las Vegas. Exceeding our expectations, the Corvettes brought in a total of $2,549,250 with the 10% buyer’s commission included in the total. Saturday night brought the top seller – a ‘67 L71 427-powered Corvette that had been completely and correctly restored back to new condition. Including the buyer’s commission, the car sold for $150,700.
Not far behind the front runner was another ‘67 Corvette selling for the second highest price at $121,000. This custom resto-mod featured a Downs Industry body, Art Morrison chassis and an LS2 V8 engine.
Although several Corvettes went for around $100K, the auction did see some bargains as well, with one car going for just $5,500. For a complete list of Corvettes that crossed the auction block at the Collector Car Auction and selling prices, check out the article on CorvetteBlogger.
