If you're a Corvette fan, this collection will interest you!

Eleven highly sought-after Corvettes from the Jim Osterman Collection of classic Corvettes is joining the Barrett-Jackson roster during the 12th Annual Las Vegas Auction. The auction takes place from October 3-5, 2019, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

“The Jim Osterman Collection includes some of today’s finest examples of classic Corvettes we’ve seen in one collection,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “It’s rare for a collection of this caliber to be sold in its entirety, and we’re proud to have it as part of this year’s Las Vegas Auction. It’s especially exciting to see this collection consigned following the announcement of the new mid-engine C8 Corvette, when enthusiasm for America’s Sports Car is running high.”

In the collection are two 1953 Corvettes in original condition, with multiple awards and distinctions behind them. A 1955 Chevy Corvette 265/195 convertible and 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window Fuelie are also in the mix.
