Corvettes Galore at the Carlisle Fall Collector Car Auction

The Fall Carlisle Collector Car Auction is coming up on September 28-29, 2023, and it is a must-see event for any Corvette enthusiast. This auction will showcase over 400 consignments, including three spectacular Corvettes from two different generations. These cars are not only stunning in appearance, but also have remarkable histories and provenance. Whether you are looking for a classic, vintage, or modern ride, you’ll find something to match your style and budget at this auction.

1954 Corvette

This car is a true survivor, with only 50,000 original miles on it. It has been stored in a temperature-controlled unit since 1981, and has recently undergone a complete service. It has a new soft top, chrome, and other parts, but retains its original charm and character. This is one of only 3,640 Corvettes made in 1954, and it is being offered to the public for the first time since it was sold new. An original car is always worth more that a restoration, especially when it comes to Corvettes.

1955 Corvette

This car is a rare gem, with a V8 engine and a Harvest Gold color that was only applied to 120 of the 700 Corvettes produced in 1955. It also has a green top and interior, creating a striking contrast. This car is not only gorgeous, but also highly acclaimed. It has earned a 99.3 in NCRS Top Flight rankings, an NCRS Performance Verification, the Duntov Award, the Bloomington Gold certification, and the Gold Spinner Award. This car is a true collector’s dream. To some.  this color might be an acquired taste, but we think it’s the epitome of Fifties cool.

1970 Corvette

This car is a head-turner, with a white body, a black roof, and an LS5 engine. It has received a body-off-frame restoration and is represented to be as accurate as the day it rolled off the assembly line. It has many options, such as power windows, factory air, custom leather interior, and more. It is one of less than 100 of the originally built 17,300 1970 Corvettes to come fully equipped. It has also been verified by an NCRS Master Judge, making this car a rare opportunity. Besides, what’s cooler than a big block C3 with P02 hubcaps and whitewalls?
