Andy’s AutoHunter Picks | ClassicCars.com Journal

I should title this “AutoHunter Picks: Corvette Edition” as the cars featured are all different versions of America’s sports car. Thanks to AutoHunter there are a number of truly excellent examples of Corvettes on the site just in time for you to buy that Christmas gift that would not fit under the tree.

Most of my AutoHunter Spotlights feature just a single car but in order to offer something for everyone in the Corvette world, we decided I could feature three different cars.

I’ll start with the oldest, a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible.

According to the seller listing this Vette, it is a numbers-matching example that went through an inside-and-out restoration and is optioned with aluminum turbine-style wheels, an AM/FM radio, a walnut steering wheel, and power disc brakes.

Under the hood is where the fun begins as this car is rare and quite powerful, being factory equipped with the Chevrolet 435-horsepower L71 Turbo-Jet 427cid big-block V8 engine mated to a reportedly numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission. 

The car received a comprehensive restoration and includes a removable body-color hardtop, the removed original gas tank with a portion of the original tank sticker, documentation, restoration photos, manuals, receipts, spare parts, and a clear title.

Finished in its original color of Ermine White (code 972) over a black vinyl (code STD) interior that is matched to the door panels, dash, center console, and carpeting, this would be a C2 car that I would love to own personally. The auction for this stunning 1967 factory big block Corvette ends on January 3, 2024 at 12:30 p.m. MST.

My next pick is quite a bit newer representing the C4 generation. It is a 1993 Chevrolet Corvette 40th Anniversary Edition coupe. This car has covered a total of only 13k miles from new and is basically an opportunity to buy a brand new 1993 Chevrolet Corvette 40th Anniversary Edition car.

This Corvette is described by the listing seller as all original 13k mile car that is powered by its original LT1 5.7-liter V8 that is backed by a four-speed automatic transmission. Features include a removable roof panel, power steering, a tilt steering column, air conditioning, power windows and locks, an AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo, power seats, and power disc brakes.

The car is painted in its original Ruby Red Metallic over its original Ruby Red leather interior and comes from the selling dealer with the original window sticker, brochures, and literature; a clean CARFAX report; and a clear title.

If you have always wanted a top tier original C4 Corvette this car would be a great opportunity to realize that dream, but act fast as the auction for this 1993 Corvette ends on auction ends January 3, 2024 at 12:00 p.m. MST.

My final pick is the car that has continued since its introduction to take the sports car world by storm, a 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2LT Z51 coupe.

This is another example of buying what is practically a brand new car as it has covered a total of only 611 miles from new.

The seller describes this C8 Corvette as a 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 2LT Z51 coupe that has received over $20,000 upgrades which include a $600 ceramic coating, $450 ceramic window tint, $500 custom-painted rockers, an extra $2,000 translucent roof panel, a $5,000 Fabspeed exhaust system, $10,000 Avant Garde three-piece wheels and Michelin Pilot Sport tires, $2,700 in custom engine bay and engine covers, and a $350 custom yellow car cover. It is powered by an LT2 6.2-liter V8 mated to a TREMEC TR-9080 eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transaxle. It is equipped with LED headlights, a removable roof panel, a 14-speaker Bose audio system, a power front lift system, and a Fabspeed exhaust.

The car is painted in Accelerate Yellow Metallic over a Sky Cool Gray leather interior, and it is being offered with a car cover and translucent roof panel with a storage bag, a window sticker, owner’s manuals, receipts, a clean CARFAX report, and a clear title.

If you want the fastest car on my list this is definitely the way to go. I love the Accelerate Yellow paint and the upgrades on this car make a great car even better. Like the other two cars, though, you should act fast if you like it as the auction for this car ends December 29, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. MST.

So there you have it, three very different Corvettes from three generations. You know you want one of them so why not just hit the bid button on the one you like the best?
