    LOT #686 - NO RESERVE

    *************************************************

    1997 CHEVROLET CORVETTE CALLAWAY C7R COUPE
    LOT #687 - NO RESERVE
    2004 BJCCA CCA
    The first complete Callaway automobile, the Callaway C7R is a full monocoque carbon fiber front mid-engined, rear transaxle design. It is powered by a 383cid all-aluminum V8 with electronically-controlled port fuel injection making some 640hp breathing through the FIA-regulated air restrictors, this Callaway C7R led its class in the 1997 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona; subsequent rules changes precluded it from further FIA GT and Le Mans competition. Freshened at the Callaway Competition factory following Daytona, it is "on the button" and comes with spare nose and tail bodywork. Created by Paul Deutschman, the Callaway C7R's flat bottom design generates downforce at speed greater than the weight of the car. Its handling and aerodynamic performance delighted its drivers at Daytona: Ron Fellows, Johnny Unser, Boris Said and Enrico Bertaggia. Only two Callaway C7R's were built; the other is in the private collection of Callaway founder Reeves Calaway.

    I am a bit skeptical on that car - seriously

    ...Then in 1975, it was sold to Lincoln Auto Salvage still with only 12 miles on the odometer. They immediately sold it to a collector in Minnesota who in turn sold it for an estimated $12,000. In the process, it seemed like a good idea to someone to trade the engine block for a new short block in 1975.
    This seems strange to me - I would not have paid that much for a car w/ questionable history...

    Still a VERY NICE & historic car but for the money, nope

    I've known about this car since the mid-1970s. If it's good enough for Roger...........it's good enough for me. The only difference is he had the money - I didn't.

    For verification of its authenticity, simply ask Duke Williams who helped work on the car when it was new and knows the original owner.

    Only 20 L-88 Corvettes sold in 1967 and Roger has two.

    Now I ask you, is that fair?

    We now return you to the Callaway conversation. :t

    Before we return to the Callaway Conversation, So Roger has two of the 20, I understand (through a suburban legend of a now deceased friend) that one of the L88's from 1967 was wrecked (destroyed) back when it was new The "owner" was a dealer in VA and although I am not certain it was an L88, I was told the air cleaner the Hood type as seen on L88's - The time period was right for this... would you know if there were any wrecked beyond repair??

    Thanks

    Default When is this auction

    Possibly I just have not read enough, but when is the auction on the sledghammer? If I remember right, the car was sold to someone in europe a few years back, so I dont think callaway owns it. It would be a good investment, much better than those bloated 67's as those are definatly at the top of the market now and I think may be in for a downfall when there are better investments to be made.
