Le Mans Safety Corvette Expected to Fetch 20 to 30k in Auction

Chevy celebrated 50 years in 2003. It sent over six Corvettes to Le Mans as part of the festivities there. Two were pace cars and the other four were safety cars. One of those safety cars is heading to auction. The vehicle is well-maintained and expected to get 20 to 30k, however, the final price might be higher depending on the bidding for the vehicle.

Quote: "Equipped with a roll cage, warning lights, safety harness, decals, and everything else your fully decked-out safety car is expected to have, we are excited to see this thing hit the auction block. Back in 2003 the Chevy Corvette was powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 making 350 horsepower—and thanks to meticulous care by GM's Heritage Collection staff and the current owner, we don't expect much power depreciation, so to speak. " (Goldberg, 2017)
