Detroit Muscle entries were led by the Corvette marque’s overall solid showing, with the top sale going to the 1969 Chevrolet Corvette L88 that sold for $401,500. Other Corvette highlights include a 1969 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 Convertible at $231,000 and a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette 427/435 Roadster realizing $214,500. The late-model BMWs and Mercedes-Benz also enjoyed a strong performance.
”Overall, we saw some very strong prices for both select, rare and outstanding muscle cars as well as on the like-showroom-new, late model cars, and it was very encouraging,” Ian Kelleher, President and COO, RM Auctions.
