Evaluation: 39,891 miles. Bloomington Gold Benchmark and Survivor awards in 2013. NCRS Top Flight. Represented as unrestored and matching numbers. With the original owner for 43 years. Full documentation and with the (clearcoated) original paint, glass, interior, and drivetrain. Some small scratches and chips on the nose. Polishing swirl and sloppy masking of the painted stripes. Remarkably good chrome and brightwork. Original engine bay has been thoroughly cleaned up and is both complete and correct. Remarkably good interior. Looks like a car a tenth its age.
Bottom Line: This Survivor (capitalized in deference to Dave Burroughs) has been around but has traveled little except on and off auction blocks. It sold here in 2013 for $328,600, saw high bids here in 2017 of $525,000 and $380,000 in 2020. The odometer has added only 11 miles since 2017. A rare and valuable Corvette in its own right, rendered even more valuable by its exceptional documentation, history and preservation. It’s a relic entitled to veneration by the Corvette faithful, its ownership is both a privilege and an obligation to continue its preservation.
