Scottsdale Barrett Jackson Show Touted as Corvette Extravaganza
Okay, so maybe scaled toy model Corvettes just aren’t your thing. I get it, who wouldn’t rather day dream of owning an actual Corvette than sit in the living room staring at some 1:18 scale replica, like the one we discussed yesterday?
Then, there are those lucky others in a position to pay top dollar for Corvettes like the ones revving up for show time at the January Barrett-Jackson show, dubbed “The World’s Greatest Collector Car Auctions,” as highlighted in a recent Robb Report story. The luxury mag zeroes in on a few of the classic beauties taking the stage this year. And their saying these are some of the best models ever shown in Scottsdale.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the docket of Corvettes that are consigned for our 45th Anniversary Auction in Scottsdale this coming January,” Barrett-Jackson CEO Craig Jackson told Robb Report. “We always have exceptional groupings of Corvettes at our auctions, but this may be the best we’ve ever consigned.”
The list of classics includes three VIN #001 Corvette convertibles from 1955-1957, a 1954 roadster that was entombed until 1986, as well as two of the most coveted 1967 427/435s ever.
