John Justo Car Collection 1963 Chevrolet Corvette up 10% on estimate

A 1963 Chevrolet Corvette has auctioned for $275,000 at the John Justo Car Collection in Florida

A Riverside Red, 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe auctioned at Mecum in Kissimmee on January 25. Considered the crown jewel in the John Justo collection, the car brought $275,000 - a 10% increase on its $250,000 high presale estimate.

Unrestored originals come to market far less often than enthusiasts would like, and, with a mere 5,500 miles on the odometer, this multiple-award winner boasts the rare combination of Riverside Red paint and low mileage that collectors seek.

Gus Grissom's Corvette Roadster brought $85,800 in Arizona on January 18-20, suggesting the classic car market remains in rude health.
