Top 10 Corvettes of All Time


The Corvette is an automotive icon, an example of just how impressive a car can be mechanically and aesthetically, yet at the same time offer an affordable (relatively speaking) price tag.

Having now driven the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, we’ve decided to look back at the entire history of the famous sports car to pick and choose our favorites, including some of the most original, significant and downright awesome Corvettes of all time.

Mecum Auctions has announced that it will be offering a very unique Corvette collection for sale during next weekend’s Bloomington Gold event.

The auction, scheduled to take place at the Pheasant Run Resort on East Main Street in St. Charles, IL on June 24-25, will see each car in the collection, which comprises a black Corvette from every year from 1954 to 1969, offered at no reserve.

Among the cars up for grabs are some very desirable models, ranging from early fuel-injected, solid axle machines to a split-window 1963 mid-year Sting Ray and even coupes and convertibles of the same model year, plus a fist full of 1965-69 396/427 big-block cars (including the 1966 Big Tank coupe shown above). Without question, this corral of Corvettes is expected to be the highlight of this year’s auction.
