Barrett-Jackson Playing Host to 27 Corvettes at OC Auction

While modern Corvettes are all the rage these days, with the last C6 coming out soon and the C7 being released late next year, no one can deny the appeal of a classic Corvette model. As we found out from CorvetteBlogger, if you’re looking for such a car to add to your collection, this weekend will bring ample opportunity for you to pick up a number of C1 through C4 model years at the third annual Barrett-Jackson Orange County Auction. Modern may not be the name of the game this time, but that doesn’t mean the Southern California auction won’t be offering plenty of drool-worthy Corvette varieties.

The Barrett-Jackson Orange County Auction starts tomorrow and will run through Sunday, playing host to 27 Corvettes. If you’re looking for a C2 or C3, the weekend festivities will offer 9 of each generation while slightly fewer C1s and C4s will be offered.

Among the Vettes set to hit the Barrett-Jackson auction block are a ‘95 pace car convertible, a restored ‘62 numbers-matching fuelie convertible, a ‘63 fuelie coupe, a ‘91 ZR-1, an ‘81 with less than 28,000 original miles on it, a ’65 pro-touring car with a supercharged LS6 in it, and a ‘68 L71 convertible with its original engine.
