Evaluation: One owner car until last year. Bought new by a Remington engineer in Connecticut who lived in his mother’s house and kept the Corvette there until he died in 2021. It reportedly never even left the state during his ownership. Obsessively maintained and kept remarkably clean. The paint is original but looks only a few years old and was recently detailed. No rust or leaks anywhere. Fantastic interior. Any Corvette this obsessively preserved is a gem, and the top notch options are icing on the cake.

Bottom Line: This impressive Corvette was a $190,000 no-sale in Kissimmee this year. A $200,000 winning bid, then, is surely less than what the seller was hoping for, and Mecum’s $280,000 high bid seems perfectly reasonable given the car’s equipment and history. Even so, rather than chasing every last bid on the Mecum tour the seller, who found the car last year, wisely decided to let go. He still likely made a very handsome profit on it.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
