Bob McDorman’s Bill Mitchell Corvettes, the 1953 GM dream cars, or just their visit to Kansas City, Mecum is definitely pulling in some cool stuff.
This weekend’s Bloomington Gold Corvette sale is no exception. I’ve always said that a black Corvette with red guts would be my dream combination. And on Saturday, Mecum will be offering a black Corvette from every year from 1954 (the first year you could get something other than white) through 1969; many with my coveted red interior, and all of them spectacular.
Amazing really is the right word for it, too. There are lots of highly desirable cars in this bunch. The ’55 is a V8. The ’62 is a big brake Fulie. The ’66 coupe is a “tanker” with a big fuel tank geared toward racing and a radio and heater delete. They almost all have the top engine options; many with rare factory fuel-injection or big blocks. The Midyear cars feature both coupes and convertibles. I think I’d still hate this guy if he weren’t selling off his collection.
You can learn all about the Mullis black Corvette collection, or any of the other great Corvettes and related memorabilia that will be sold this weekend, by visiting Mecum’s website.
In the meantime, the slideshow below provides pictures of all the Corvettes in this collection provided by Mecum Auctions. Try not to drool all over your kepboard.
