Rare 1955 Corvette brought home…

Written by Waisner on March 23rd, 2010

from the Amelia Island, Florida Gooding and Co. Auction by… me! This rare 1955 was one of only 700 produced in 1955 and the Pennant Blue paint was only applied to 45 cars that year. Also, 1955 marked the first year for the V8 in a Corvette.
I paid $126,500.00 plus shipping for this past Bloomington Gold award winner which had been part of the Paul Jones Collection of Jonesville, Michigan until Paul sold the car in 2007 at the Mecum Bloomington Auction for $178,500.00.
Will consider an offer on this car that advances ProTeam’s basis should someone appreciate this car as much as we do. Email: [email protected]

Also purchased at auction:
1967 Corvette Convertible, 300 hp, 4 speed… super rare and correct (real) Tuxedo Black with White/Black combo interior with its factory original body/trim tag. One of only a handful produced in this rare color combination. Body-off restored. NCRS Top Flight certified (98.2%) in 2007. Documented with warranty book/P.O.P, window sticker, dealer invoice, original canceled title, notarized deed of trust, owners manual packet, NCRS certificate/judging sheets/ribbon, and 1983 and 1986 dealer reassignment.
I really like this truly exceptional car and paid $73,000.00 plus shipping and am looking for someone who can appreciate it at least as much or more than me and will offer me a profit.
1995 Brand New Pace Car Convertible with only 53 miles from new… one of only 527 built. This car is in the wrapper with window sticker still on windshield. Automatic, leather, and loaded one owner car that I just bought at auction for $33,800.00 plus shipping.
Looking for an appreciative collector to advance my position. Email: [email protected]
