Unique Harley Earl Corvette makes a mammoth $1.5million at auction

| 17 Oct 2013

The 1963 'Harley Earl' Corvette nudged the £1million mark to sell for a mighty $1.5million at Mecum's Chicago auction.

Almost 1000 classics crossed the block raising a total of $18.5million, but the Corvette outsold the next priciest lot by a million bucks.

The reason for the interest in the car was that the 1963 one-of-a-kind styling exercise was given to the designer of the original Corvette who used it as his personal transport.

Lagging well behind at $500k was a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.

Other interesting lots included:

1965 Shelby Cobra, CSX4337, $140,000

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, $135,000

1968 Dodge Hemi Dart Lightweight, $125,000

1969 Pontiac Trans Am, $118,000

1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible, $110,000

1951 Willys Overland Custom Pickup, $100,000
