The bets are starting to roll in on two hot Corvettes up for auction in April, and the speculation is that both could fetch up to $1 million each when they cross the block.

The first up is the Bunkie Knudsen Corvette, a 1963 Corvette Sting Ray built specifically for General Motors Chevrolet Division General Manager Semon “Bunkie” Knudsen, according to a Yahoo Autos report.

The one-of-a-kind beauty, slated to go across the blocks at Mecum Auctions, features chrome side pipes, Crimson Firefrost Metallic paint and a custom interior. The highly coveted Bunkie Knudsen collectible also features a chrome plated 327 cubic-inch V8 under the hood with crinkle-finish black paint.

“All of Knudsen’s cars came in this color, and I’m sure he was out and about showing it off often,” Mecum consignment director John Kraman said. “It’s a real automotive landmark that has special panache.”

The second Corvette, one we covered earlier here, is a classic 1967 Sting Ray owned by a former marine with 2,996 original miles on the odometer.

So, any takers?
