Corvettes at the Barrett-Jackson Auction Raise Over $2 Million for Veterans

When it comes to helping veterans, General Motors is serious. Earlier this year, Chevrolet sold two Corvettes at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. Combined, the two Corvettes fetched $2.325 million that will be donated to veterans organizations. Here at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet, we are proud to see Chevrolet doing so much to support our veterans.

The first model was a Corvette Carbon 65 Edition signed by President George W. Bush. This model was bought by John Staluppi, owner for Atlantic Automotive Group. He bought this unique model for $1.4 million. This money will be donated to Bush Center’s Military Service Initiative, which assists post-9/11 veterans and their families transition back to civilian life.

Next up on the auction block was a Corvette ZR1. This first production model was purchased by Rick Hendrick, chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, for $925,000. The proceeds from this sale will benefit the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This organization supports wounded veterans.

“GM and Chevrolet are proud to honor and support the brave men and women of our armed forces,” said Steve Hill, GM vice president of U.S. sales and service. “Thanks to the generosity of two of our dealers, John Staluppi and Rick Hendrick, we will be able to offer additional support to some of our most severely wounded veterans.”

We applaud Chevy’s presence at this event. If you’d like to test drive a Corvette for yourself, simply visit us at Vann Gannaway Chevrolet.
