Top 10 Corvettes Heading To GAA's Auction
So, you’re after one of America’s greatest automotive icons? That time has come in your life for you to indulge in that particular sports car you’ve always wanted… You’re not alone in wanting a Chevrolet in your garage, and the good news is that there’s plenty to choose from. The Greensboro Auto Auction has over 60 of all variations and generations due to hit the auction block this weekend.
Here’s our top 10 Corvettes from GAA.
1982 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition — Lot: TH0133
If you’re looking for a C3 Corvette, then the run-out Collector Edition model is a pretty special one to have. 6,759 of these Corvettes were built featuring a unique golden colour, trim, and badging.
Back in the 1980s it was the first Corvette to exceed $20,000 but at GAA you might be able to bag a bargain, as this car is being sold without reserve.
1978 Chevrolet Corvette Pace Car — Lot: FR0147
Another C3 Corvette of note in the auction is this ‘Pace Car’ special edition. In 1978 a Stingray was used as the official pace car of the Indianapolis 500 to celebrate 25 years of the model.
Its distinctive two-tone paint and provenance might make for an interesting addition to an existing collection.
1971 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible — Lot: ST0038
Arguably the prettiest Corvette of the bunch, this blue-on-blue Stingray convertible is presented in a beautiful shade called Mulsanne Blue.
Just imagine causing along in the sunshine with the roof down, listening to its 350 small block V8 engine burbling away. Perfection!
1961 Chevrolet Corvette — Lot: ST0045
This car is certainly worthy of some attention! It’s a beautifully restored C1 model that looks fit for a concours. The 1961 model is powered by a 283 Ci V8 Engine that’s good for 245hp.
Finished in Tuxedo Black and wearing a set of whitewall tires, this lot is one of the auction’s highlights.
1999 Chevrolet Corvette — Lot: TH0087
Being offered without reserve is this pre-millennium C5 Corvette. A 345hp LS1 motor serves as its beating heart, something that should certainly get your own heart pulsing!
This car has a nice selection of factory fitted options including cruse control, metallic paint, and dual zone air conditioning.
1991 Chevrolet Corvette — Lot: TH0115
This C4 generation car has just 28,000 miles logged from new, making it an impressively low-mileage example. The car appears in great condition largely due to to being kept in a garage all of its life.
It’ll go as good as it looks thanks to the thunderous 5.7-liter V8 engine under the hood.
1998 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible — Lot: TH0126
If you’re after some alfresco C5 Corvette motoring, why not go the whole hog and buy one with a cool graphic running along its length? This is another ‘no reserve’ car meaning that you’re new toy might end up costing less than anticipated.
This automatic car is powered by a trusty Corvette LS1 motor.
1978 Chevrolet Corvette — Lot: FR0081
How’s this for a head-turner? Two-tone grey exterior meets vibrant red leather upholstery for this C3. It also has a targa roof meaning that you can enjoy the sunshine while retaining a hardtop for when the bad weather returns.
This is another Corvette being sold without reserve.
1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible — Lot: FR0184
If you’re looking for something a little more unique, check out this customised convertible C2. This car combines both old and new with classic looks fused to modern performance underpinnings. A 400hp LS2 engine lurks under the hood with modern Corvette suspension also at play.
2017 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 — Lot: FR0219
If a more modern Corvette is what you’re looking for, GAA’s got you covered with this 2017 Z06. Sporting just 1,800 miles, its supercharge 6.2-liter V8 engine has barley had the chance to exploit all 650hp at its disposal.
It’s also finished in a rather sinister shade call Black Rose Metallic.
