As the Mecum Chicago 2013 auction approached, we brought you information on an awesome 1962 Corvette Restomod. Well, the auction has come and gone, and the '62 unfortunately failed to sell after reaching a high bid of $170,000.
The beautiful Vette is packed with a Z06-cam'd LS1 engine and 6-speed Tremec with a polished aluminum transmission case. Nearly everything about the Vette is custom, including one-off stainless steel headers and side pipes, a one-of-a-kind engine cover, custom-made frame with rack and pinion steering and Air Ride Technologies suspension - all major contributions in making this car a sweet competitor on-track and off. You can read more about the car here.
While this fine Corvette didn't sell, the top seller of the Chicago auction was a 1963 Harley J. Earl Corvette, which brought in $1.5 million.
There were two other Corvettes that earned places on the Top Ten best sellers including: a 1967 Corvette convertible, which placed fifth and brought in $135,000, and a 1962 Corvette convertible in eighth fetching $110,000.
