First Corvette C2 goes to auction

The first C2, that was built in 1965, will go to auction. Specifically this Corvette came off the production line on August 6, 1964, and except for the serial number no. 1, it was the first car that was painted in the Satin Silver color. The head for production was John Evans and his five workers, who assembled the car in the St. Louis factory. Noteworthy is considered the fact that Chevrolet used the car to show the placement of four disc brakes for braking the car.

The car is equipped with a 5.4 liter 365 hp engine combined with a 4-speed manual transmission. It has traveled 28,000 miles, it has a full service history, while it wears the Kelsey Hayes wheels. The auction house Meccum Auction expects to sell it from $100,000 up to $ 150,000.
