At this point in time, there are 279 Corvettes that will be offered during the Mecum Auction that is currently going on in Kissimmee Florida (Orlando Area).
Today (Sunday, January 7, 2018) there are eight Corvettes. One of the interesting ones is a 1963 ZO6 Corvette. It is one of 199 produced. It had a body-off restoration in 2015 and has been with its current owner for 48 years with records dating back to 1970. It’s first five years it spent as a racer.
There are four 1953 Corvettes available. Serial numbers 64, 147 and #91 which was formerly owned by Sam Folz, who is 1 of the 7 founding fathers of the NCRS. The fourth one is actually a resto-mod built on a Billy Dawson Corvette Correction chassis and built completed by Miller Customs in Findlay, Ohio

Yesterday we were able to snap a few shots of some of the Corvettes and will give you updates as the auction progresses.
Corvettes in the Ray Hott Collection at Mecum Auction
Our first group of photos is from the Ray Hott Collection which goes across the block Tuesday, January 9. It is offered at NO RESERVE!
Our next two Corvettes will be auction Friday, January 12, 2018.
The last Corvette we took photos of is 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Sting Ray Coupe Replica. This will be offered on Saturday, January 13, 2018, at the Mecum Auction in Kissimmee Florida.
Friday eighteen Corvettes went across the block. Eleven sold, and seven the Bid Goes On. Of them, the one that struck me was LOT J115.1 which is a 1963 ZO6/No3 that you can still put in your stall! It was certified in 2002 with a Bloomington Gold Silver. It looks like a very nice car!
Saturday twenty-seven Corvettes were offered, twenty-two sold, and five are still available.
