There are many classic Corvettes as well as modern Corvettes that we love and someday they will be classics in the future. One of the biggest Corvette classics to date is the 1963 Corvette Grand Sport. Only five of these cars were produced and there were labeled the â€œfather of the Corvetteâ€.
This classic car competed with Shelbyâ€™s Cobra roadsters before it was cancelled in 1964. Now a days it is extremely rare to find one of these Corvettes on sale today – but for the first time in awhile one is going to be auctioned off. Keith Martin – the publisher of Corvette Market Magazine and RM have dubbed the Grand Sport the most important Corvette that was ever on sale.
The Corvette Grand Sport to be auctioned offÂ in JanuaryÂ is chassis #002 and is only one of two roadsters that were made. It is equipped with its original unrestored body and was once owned by Roger Penske and George Wintersteen.
