1967 Big Block Corvettes to Be Featured at 5th Annual Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Auction
PALM BEACH, Fla.--Corvette enthusiasts and collectors worldwide will descend on South Florida to select from an impressive array of 1967 Big Block Corvettes that will cross the auction block at No Reserve during the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event from March 28 - April 1, 2007, in Palm Beach, Fla. The fifth annual Palm Beach event will feature over 600 of the world’s most exclusive collector automobiles, approximately 100 lifestyle vendors and 17 hours of coverage on PEE.
The 11-car group of 1967 Big Blocks includes a variety of options and horsepower. Five of the Corvettes feature the desirable 427cid/435 horsepower V8 engine combination, with a 4-speed manual transmission.
“These Big Block Corvettes headed to South Florida demonstrate our ability to continually consign the most desirable, highly sought after collector cars,” said Craig Jackson, CEO of the Barrett-Jackson Auction Company. “Nothing represents pure American power and speed like a Big Block Corvette.”
“The bar was raised for Big Block Corvettes when ‘The Last Corvette’ sold for $660,000 at our Scottsdale 2007 auction,” said Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson. “That winning bid created quite a stir and helped fuel the awareness and demand for these iconic Corvettes.”
The lot numbers for the group of 11 Corvettes are: #392, #416, #659, #667.1, #683, #692, #714, #714.1, #721, #726 and #728. Please visit www.barrett-jackson.com for more details on each car.
