1968 Scuderia Filipinetti L88 Coupe

The Greder Corvette, s/n 410300, holds a unique place in Le Mans history, not only as one of the most successful, and well-traveled, Corvette race cars in the world, but also as the survivor of one of Chevrolet’s “back door” racing programs, managed and implemented by Zora Arkus-Duntov. The central figure is Henri Greder.

Greder nearly won the 1963 Tour de France in a factory-entered 427 Ford Galaxie. This earned him a Ford of France ride in a 4.7-liter GT40 Read More

1988 Corvette Challenge Race Car

Chevrolet went racing with the Corvette in 1988, producing 56 cars for the inaugural season of the Powell Development America-inspired SCCA Corvette Challenge Series. The white coupe offered here is one of those original 56.

The Challenge cars were identically outfitted with standard equipment, including the 245-hp cross-fire fuel injection engine, Doug Nash 4+3 manual transmission, Z51 Performance Handling Suspension package, AC3 6-Way Power Driver Seat, UU8 Delco-Bose Stereo, Z6A Side Window and Side Mirror Defog System, and Read More

2003 Z06 Hard Top

When Chevrolet revisited its past to introduce a new Z06 two-door hard top in 2001, it also added $7,000 to the base car’s $40,475 sticker price.

The new Z06 offered a new, more powerful engine, the 386-hp LS6. The LS6 had a new block, new intake and exhaust manifolds, new cylinder heads, unique camshaft profile, and higher capacity fuel injector. All Z06s had titanium exhaust systems and came with 6-speed transmissions.

They didn’t have run-flat tires or a Read More

1958 283/245 Convertible

Although the cars built from 1953 to 1955 introduced the Corvette to America, it was the 1956 second series that truly earned the title “America’s Sports Car.” The clean good looks of Harley Earl’s new body design struck a chord with the American public, and it quickly outsold the older style by three to one. In addition, Zora Arkus-Duntov and Chevrolet Engineering had dramatically altered the personality of Chevrolet’s sports car with powerful small-block V8 engines and improved Read More

1964 350 Convertible Resto-Mod

Introduced in 1963, the Bill Mitchell-designed Corvette Sting Ray was a quantum leap in the Corvette’s ongoing development. Equipped with a revolutionary yet simple independent rear suspension conceived by Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Corvette matured into a true sports car.

Continuously improved, the Corvette featured an ever-expanding list of available engine and transmission combinations, and offered high performance, nimble handling, and cutting-edge styling. The 327-ci small-block V8 engine was a highly developed and formidable performer, available in four levels of tune Read More

1967/74 “Delmo Johnson” Race Car

After many years in retirement, Corvette Grand Sport racer Delmo Johnson was encouraged by some Texas friends to become involved in vintage racing. He acquired this, his last race car, around 1990 from his old friend John Mecom, an equally famous Texan.

The car began life in 1967 as a Sting Ray racer, and had a distinguished racing history, having been driven by the likes of Alan Sevadjian and finishing first at the 1979 SCCA Runoffs before being Read More

1990 “Active Suspension” Prototype

Built at the Bowling Green plant, the vehicle was developed as a prototype for a limited-edition run in the 1990 model year. This is a concept vehicle. This vehicle will be conveyed to the buyer with no manufacturer statement of origin (MSO) or title, and the vehicle does not have a complete VIN. Sold on bill of sale only.

1999 Lingenfelter LS7 Twin-Turbo Coupe

The name John Lingenfelter has become a legend in the world of performance engineering. For over 30 years, it has been synonymous with world-class performance, taking great cars and trucks and reinventing them.

Lingenfelter has twice worked his magic on this 1999 Corvette, adding twin turbochargers and beefy internals to its 346-ci LS1 and taking the car to 226 mph for a Motor Trend cover story, which called it “the fastest, meanest street-legal car we’ve ever tested.”

1998 Callaway C12 Coupe

Callaway has built a firm reputation for producing some of the most sophisticated and advanced Corvette-based automobiles ever to hit the road. Callaway’s C12, introduced in 1998, continued this legacy. Designed, developed, and constructed with the assistance of German engineering and development company IVM, the C12 was created from the outset to be a bespoke, high-performance car that offered its occupants a civilized interior and relaxed ride.

The Callaway C12 serial number is the same as a standard Read More

GM Heritage Fleet: C4 Dreams and C5 Mules

General Motors captured the spotlight at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction from January 11–18, 2009, when it released 252 cars from its Heritage Fleet for no-reserve sale. (The Heritage Fleet must be differentiated from GM’s Heritage Collection; the former are surplus or less important cars, the latter are the milestone cars that represent GM’s 100 years of contribution to automotive history.) While many came with a scrap title (odd when you think who’s selling the car), that was related to federal Read More
