Three Chevrolet models were auctioned off for charity at the Barrett-Jackson auction.
Online PR News – 30-January-2013 – Keyser, WV – At the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, three incredibly exclusive Chevrolet vehicles were auctioned off for charity. Timbrook Chevrolet provided us with the full details of each vehicle.
The biggest item in the entire auction was the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which was unveiled last week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. The latest addition to the Vette family marks the seventh-generation for the classic sports car—the most powerful, efficient, and luxurious Corvette to date.
But the Corvette at the auction was a very special one—#0001, the very first Stingray that will be produced in the third quarter of 2013. This one-of-a-kind Vette sold for $1.1 million at the auction. It was purchased by a very famous man in the world of NASCAR: Rick Hendrick, who owns his own NASCAR team and who founded the Hendrick Automotive Group and the Hendrick Marrow Program. All the proceeds from his generous donation will go to the College of Creative Studies, located in Chevy’s own backyard in Detroit, Michigan.
Also auctioned off was another Corvette. This one was a 1958 model which belonged to none other than Dan Akerson, the CEO of GM. This exciting donation from Akerson merited $270,000 for the college.
Finally, an incredibly rare COPO Camaro convertible was auctioned off. This is the only car of its kind that has ever been sold and ever will be sold. The only other COPO Camaro convertible will be housed in GM’s Heritage Center on display. The convertible went for $400,000. This money was donated to the American Heart Association.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will arrive at Timbrook Chevrolet in the third quarter of this year.
