Barrett-Jackson’s Most Expensive Chevys

Last time we talked about Chevy's at Barrett-Jackson, we told you that public interest in collectibles was on the rise -- maybe because of the accessibility to spectate at these auctions or just because the industry is revving back up after the recession. Now that the first Barrett-Jackson auction of 2014 has wrapped up, we now know that people bid like they've never done before. This event was full of record-breaking, jaw-dropping sales on some of the best Chevys to ever go into a public auction.

Amongst the most expensive Chevys at the Scottsdale, AZ were some of the cars we mentioned to be the coolest in our previous post, and others many overlooked. For example, one Corvette was barely noticeable on their website, wasn't covered by any auto blogs, and as far as we can tell no one really thought much to look into it...but this L88 with three low quality pictures was a big winner.

As you'll notice, classic Corvettes dominated this year, which we think is related to the popularity of the new Stingray body style and timing of the 2015 Z06 release.
