As an auction noted for its annual delivery of a diverse and varied lineup, this year’s event produced a surprisingly focused top 10 sales list. Seven of the top 10 sales were Chevrolets and four of those were Corvettes. It was two resto modded Camaros, however, that followed the Ford GT in top dollars achieved, with a 1967 model selling for $77,000 and a 1969 bringing $74,250. Others to appear in the top 10 included a pickup truck, a Bentley and a Cobra Replica, demonstrating that despite Chevrolet’s top 10 takeover, variety was indeed still on tap.
