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.
It’s been said that every good thing must come to an end; that is, except for Corvettes, which explains why a ’57 Stocker model, once considered long gone, has resurfaced.
The C7 Corvette represents a major leap over the C6 in all categories. In terms of design, that leap is best delineated when you compare their rumps. The contrast is striking, isn’t it?
All mortals take note, there is one thing you should never, ever do, and that’s touch another person’s Corvette in any form or fashion. That is, unless (1) you’ve been given permission by the owner, (2) you’ve provided at least three solid references or referrals, and (3) signed a waiver that if the Corvette happens to sustain any damage due to your negligence, you agree to waive any and all legal rights typical granted to criminals or the mentally insane.
Hey, we’ll take just about any footage of the new Stingray we can get our hands on, especially if it gives us the opportunity to take a closer look at the new Z06 and C7.R racecar. The most recent video we’ve stumbled on comes courtesy of General Motors, highlighting the premiere of the two higher performance ‘Vettes at the recent Geneva Motor Show in Europe.
