Here’s Why This ‘62 Corvette Is Well Worth $200,000
Of all the automobiles we’ve seen go for big bucks at a Barrett-Jackson auction, there’s certainly no question about whether the $200,000 for this one was money well spent.
Oh, sure, the 1962 hand-built and modified retro Corvette is obviously a showstopper, that goes without saying. But it’s the charitable cause behind the modified classic that really makes it special.
According to a press release, the car was donated by an anonymous owner to Carrington Charitable Foundation (CCF), a nonprofit organization that helps put wounded Veterans in a home of their own.
All the proceeds from the $200,000 raised from the sale of the Corvette will directly benefit CCF efforts in areas like fundraising events, donation drives, and volunteer activities. Some of the Veterans who have been helped by the CCF were actually on hand for the Barrett-Jackson auction in Las Vegas where the Corvette was auctioned.
For the record, the buyer said the Carrington Charitable Foundation was a major reason why he bid on the car in the first place.
