C2 Corvette Cut-Away Could Fetch Big Money at Auction
When it comes to making a major investment in a single Corvette, it might be tough to beat this one that’s set to cross the blocks at RM Auctions. Although you might not want to drive it.
The 1965 C2 Corvette cut-away, which was designed to showcase everything from the car’s engine to the four-wheel independent suspension, cost $1 million to complete back in 1965. With inflation, that comes out to roughly $7.5 million in 2015, according to a GM Authority report.
Designed to showcase the mechanical wonders of the C2 at the time, the display became a popular fixture on the auto show circuit before ending up at a South African auto mechanic school in the 1990s. It was eventually completely restored by collector Al Wiseman, which makes that investment number even higher.
Of course, no one expects the special C2 display to fetch $7.5 million. In 2007, it was sold for $704,000 and predictions are swirling around $1.4 million for the piece this go around, but even that’s nothing to sneeze at.
