C1, C2 and C3 Corvettes in Historics 19th May Sale

Published 05 May 2018

Among 170 classic cars, Historics Auction at Brooklands Museum on 19th May features a ’59 Chevrolet Corvette C1, a ’66 Stingray roadster and a '68 C3 roadster – all 4-speed manual.

The Harley Earl styled C1 is a 1959 boat-tailed 283 V8 carburettor 4-speed manual. Recently imported to the UK it has since been MoTd and UK registered with a V5C supplied with the car. The yellow fibreglass coachwork is in good order and there is no sign of any corrosion. The engine starts ‘on the button’ and sounds fantastic. Estimated at £67,000 to £75,000.

Chevrolet Corvette C2 Stingray 1966 Historics 

The 1966 C2 Stingray roadster is a 350ci ‘big block’ 4-speed manual featuring an all original interior and soft-top. In 2014 the body was sandblasted and repainted, the suspension and braking systems were overhauled with new parts. And the engine was fitted with fresh oil seals throughout. The car came to the UK via Germany in 2016 and is supplied with paperwork to register it in the UK, including the US certificate of title, the NOVA certificate, an MoT test certificate to April 2019, the German import papers and a V55/5, but the new owner will need to get a dating certificate from the Corvette club. Estimated at £39,000 to £45,000.

Chevrolet Corvette C3 Roadster 1968

The 1968 C3 roadster has a 350HP 327 V8 under the hood and, again, a four speed manual transmission. Restored to factory spec in Safari Yellow with contrasting black weave interior and black convertible top, it sits on period Rally wheels with whitewall radials. Two detailed history files come with it as well as the 1968 handbooks. Imported in 2013, UK registered with a V5C and an MoT to April 2019 it is estimated at £26,000 to £32,000.

Around 170 cars entered including eighteen Porsche 911s, four Aston Martin V8s, a hot-rodded Smart Roadster Coupe, a resto-rodded 1960 FIAT 500 Nuova cabrio, a 39,000 mile 1995 Toyota Landcruiser 4.2VX and a restored 1975 VW Type 182 Trekker.
