LOT L66 1977 Corvette Martel Continental Coupe

Our next Corvette is one I missed while at the Mecum auction. I didn’t realize it was a Corvette. It’s a 1977 Corvette Martel Continental Coupe. There were 49,213 1977 Corvette produced, but I never saw one that looked like this. According to Hagerty’s website, it is likely the creation of Gerry Martel, a Massachusetts appraiser, restorer, and all-around car guy.

The 1977 Corvette Martel Continental has an Edelbrock V-8 engine with an automatic transmission. The Green and Black two-tone exterior have a split rear window and the Continental kit on the rear. The interior is also Green and has a wood dashboard. The car was offered as part of the Klairmont Kollection and sold at no reserve for $19,800. One thing for sure, it is sure to be the only one in its class at the next car show!

There were two Motion Corvettes avaialbel:1972 Chevrolet Corvette Motion Moray GT and 1973 Chevrolet Corvette Motion Manta Ray GT. The 1972 bid to $70,000 and the 1973 Sold for $88,000.
