LAS VEGAS – September 21, 2018 – Barrett-Jackson will be home to an impressive group of Chevrolet Corvettes and Camaros during the 11th Annual Las Vegas Auction at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Sept. 27-29, 2018. From classic to late-model versions, some of the finest examples of these purely American performance cars will race into the hearts of enthusiasts during the three-day, premier automotive lifestyle event hosted in the Entertainment Capital of the World. Among the most anticipated Corvettes on consignment is a ’66 Corvette 427/390 (Lot #766), which is one of only 20 Sting Rays with a 427/390 engine and Powerglide automatic transmissions. A one-of-a-kind Resto-Mod ’67 Camaro RS convertible (Lot #669.1) was professionally built and features custom exterior and interior upgrades throughout.
“The Corvette was born in 1953 and quickly evolved into one of the most popular sports cars in the world,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “A little over a decade later, Chevrolet stunned the world with its lean and aggressive Camaro. Today, these two bowtie performance vehicles sit comfortably at the pinnacle of American performance, representing cutting-edge innovation that trickles into the other Chevy vehicles. From limited-edition models to some of the best customs, we’ll have an incredible selection of Chevrolet horsepower at our Las Vegas Auction.”
Corvettes crossing the Las Vegas Auction block will include models from the first generations to the latest versions rolling off the assembly lines. A few of the classic Corvettes include a ’58 “Fuelie” Convertible (Lot #665) that is a part of the Bryan Frank Collection and is a fine example of an excellent-driving, detailed and well-sorted Corvette. An NCRS Top Flight Award winner ’67 427 Convertible (Lot #747) was restored by Elwood Thorpe and only has 71,750 original miles. Finished in International Blue, a ’68 Corvette convertible (Lot #668.1) features a 427/390 Turbo Jet V8 with 51,600 original miles.
Late-model Corvettes in Las Vegas will include a ’12 Callaway Grand Sport Convertible (Lot #642). This 25th Anniversary Edition is #12 of 25 built, and produces 620 horsepower, the most of any LS3-powered Corvette. With only 155 actual miles, a stunning 60th Anniversary Edition Corvette 427 (Lot #643) is equipped with the carbon-fiber package, 60th Anniversary Design Package, 60th Anniversary Stripe Package and 1 SC Package. A track-inspired ’16 Z06 C7.R (Lot #685) only has 1,400 actual miles and is #42 of 500 built.
“Corvette and Camaro have long set the standard for American design and performance,” said Steve Davis, Barrett-Jackson president. “These two models have made an impact on our culture for generations. No other American-built vehicle can boast nearly six decades of production like the Corvette. That not only speaks volumes about the Corvette, but the other incredible vehicles Chevrolet builds. We have a wonderful selection of these bowties within our sold-out docket for Las Vegas that is sure to have something to catch the eye of any level of collector.”
