1 of 100 1954 Corvette Roadster Up for Auction
This one-of-one-hundred 1954 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster, which is going up for auction later this month, makes our writer want to be a better man, or at least a harder working one.
Built in 1964 with serial no. 1, this 1965-specification Corvette Stingray could fetch anywhere from $100,000 to $150,000 when it crosses the block at Mecum Auctions next month.
A true American gem is going on the Mecum auction block this month: A Rare Tuxedo Black 1969 Corvette L88 Coupe, one of only 118 produced that year.
Have you ever wondered what happened to that 1988 Callaway Corvette Sledgehammer that was predicted to go for up to $1 million at a Mecum auction earlier this year? Well, it appears the car is still on the market if you’re looking to pick up another piece for your collection. The high-powered ’88 Corvette, which cranks out a whopping 898 horsepower and has a top speed of 250 mph, remains listed as available on the Mecum.com site.
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.
