“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Corvettes.”
As a salute to one of America’s most notable icons, ProTeam Classic Corvette Collection and Sales has assembled a patriotic trio of Corvettes to be sold at the Kruse Fall Labor Day Auction on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2007.
The Star Spangled Collection features three first generation 1954 Corvettes one red, one white and one blue that will be sold together as one lot. All three Corvettes have the Blue Flame Six cylinder engine and boast numerous awards:
1954 Corvette Convertible, Blue Flame Six, powerglide. Sportsman red with red interior and beige soft top, this vehicle is one of only 100 produced. It is in body-off show condition and Bloomington Gold certified.
1954 Corvette, Blue Flame Six, powerglide with 21,535 actual miles. Polo white paint with Sportsman red interior, beige soft top and body-off restored. This vehicle is a National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) Top Flight certified and AACA Junior, Senior and Grand National certified.
1954 Corvette Convertible, Blue Flame Six, powerglide. Pennant blue with tan interior and tan (beige) soft top, this Corvette is one of only 300 Pennant blue Corvettes produced. It is Bloomington Gold certified and a Vette Fest Gold Spinner award winner.
“Anticipating how dynamic and eye-catching this Corvette display will be only makes me love what I do even more,” said Terry Michaelis, president of ProTeam. “We are very excited to be able to draw attention to these vehicles. What better way to celebrate the great American Corvette and ProTeam’s one-year anniversary of our Auburn showroom than with an unforgettable Star Spangled Corvette Collection!”
ProTeam’s Star Spangled Collection is generating national buzz, with a feature segment about the sale anticipated on the popular ESPN2 program “Bidding Wars” next year.
According to Michaelis, ProTeam’s cars are guaranteed to be number’s matching and show their actual miles, if so claimed.
The Star Spangled Collection (Lot #2789.1) will cross the auction block on Saturday, Sept. 1, 2007. ProTeam will be selling 20 additional award-winning Corvettes during this year’s Kruse auction. For more information or pictures of these Corvettes, visit ProTeam’s website at www.proteamcorvette.com.
