corvettes are golden at barrett-jackson scottsdale 2019

Regardless of the auction, you can rest assured that Corvettes will always be crowd favorites. Traditionally, Corvettes have a noticeable presence at any auction and regardless of what the keynote car or cars are, Corvettes get everyone’s attention. In trying to get a feel for the Corvette “price climate” I watched closely at what went on at the most recent Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction.There were 160 Corvettes that crossed the block and they all sold. In the mix was Jeff Gordon’s black-on-black 2016 C7.R (747 miles on the odometer), which brought in a whopping $600,000 for Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. (The entire gavel price went toward the charity.)One of my favorites belonged to longtime friend Art Morrison, who knows a thing or two about making any car handle, especially restomod Corvettes.…

“commuter” corvette

That’s the nickname Bob McVay, Motor Trend’s assistant technical editor, gave to the 1965 Sting Ray he tested for the magazine’s April 1965 issue. Its 300-horse 327 made it “a very easy car to live with—much more so than former fuel-injection models we’ve driven. It started easily, was completely docile in traffic, needed only first and fourth for most normal demands, and it was very quiet. On the other hand, it gave excellent performance for a 3,280-pound car when we used the 5,500-rpm red line and the four-speed gearbox to the fullest extent.”“After 1,500 miles, in our opinion, the 1965 Corvette has the finest, smoothest-acting, and strongest set of stoppers available on any American automobile.”Two years into the second-generation model run, Chevrolet made some significant changes to the Vette. This…

Q: Hi. I have been a longtime subscriber and I am interested in asking a question to your Technically Speaking staff. I have a 1967 Corvette and the clock will only work when I tap the face of the clock.My car has been judged and has an NCRS Top Flight award. I want to keep my car as original as possible so I do not want to have the inner workings of my clock converted to quartz.I love working on my Corvette and get great satisfaction when I can fix it myself. My question: Is there an easy repair that I could perform to repair my clock? I don’t like the idea of having to ship my clock through the mail to get it repaired.Thanks,Bob, from FloridaA: Bob, the internal…

hot sauce

From all indications, this 1964 Corvette coupe was intended to spend its life as a racehorse right out of the gate. As one of 5,274 1964 Corvettes produced in Riverside Red, it was equipped with a 375-horse, fuel-injected 327; deep gears with posi and radio delete.Already a C5 Corvette owner and hot rodder, owner Steve Locklin explained to Vette it was the C2 Corvette’s timeless styling with the ridged spine down the top that helped him decide a Sting Ray would be his next project. Steve found the ’64 on eBay and learned from the seller that Tim Ames at J&M Enterprizes in Brooksville, Florida, was familiar with the car and could attest to its condition.After consulting with J&M, Steve bought the ’64 sight unseen and commissioned J&M to get…
