Over 100 Salvage Corvettes Heading to the Auction Block
by Keith Cornett
If your looking for a project C3 or C4 Corvette, check out this auction of over 100 salvage Corvettes that will be sold on Saturday in Forest City, North Carolina. Whittington Auction and Appraisal is handling the gavel duties for this collection of mostly insurance salvage Corvettes and parts. The sale is actually the first of two auctions with the second part dealing with thousands of used original Corvette parts.
The Corvettes range from 1968 to 1990 and have been stored in a dry warehouse. While many of the insurance salvage cars are in pieces, we noted several Corvettes that still retain their engines. Frames and birdcages also seem to be in abundant supply.
The collection of C3 and C4 salvage Corvettes is owned by none other than Charlie Brown and he has decided to focus his attention in other business ventures. Therefore, this is an absolute auction were everything must go. All the Corvettes were inspected by the NC Department of Motor Vehicles and the cars will be sold on bill of sale only.
“Charlie Brown is devoting his time and efforts to other business ventures and has commissioned us to sell over 100 salvage Corvettes at absolute auction,” explained Whittington. “That means that these salvage Corvettes and parts will sell to the highest bidder.”
The auction begins at 10am at 10 Old Caroleen Road in Forest City. Interested parties can preview the collection from 1pm to 5pm on Friday, November 4, 2011.
Later this month on November 18 and 19, the second auction consisting of thousands of original parts for 1956-1990 Corvettes will be held in Columbus, NC. Details of the sales can be found at www.WhittingtonAuction.com
