[Photos] Six of the Hottest Chevys at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach
This weekend is the annual Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Springs, Florida, where hundreds of classic and one-of-a-kind vehicles will cross the block and be sold to the highest bidder. A great many of the featured vehicles on the docket are Bowtie-branded, so we wanted to take a look at just a sampling of some of the amazing Chevrolets that will be available for the taking.

Lot #126 – 1971 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray T-Top Coupe
This Stingray is extremely rare—one of a mere 1,417 examples built. It was the recipient of a frame-off restoration (documented via photographs and receipts), and it still houses the original 350/330-horsepower LT1 engine. The interior is completely redone in sharp-looking Bridgehampton Blue vinyl and carpet, which matches the exterior color.

Lot #165 – 1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
This Rally Red ‘Vette is the very definition of cherry, recently benefiting from a frame-on restoration that granted it a new top and interior. With period-correct heads, intake, carburetor, transmission, and rear end, you’d be the talk of any vintage car show if you were to roll up in this piece.
