Classic Corvettes Could Fetch One Million Dollars Each

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?
