Headline offering include a 1967 Chevrolet Yenko Camaro (Lot S134), one of less than 10 known to exist and the only Butternut Yellow example to have survived, the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 (Lot S165) piloted by the legendary Mickey Thompson at Bonneville, a 1968 Chevrolet Corvette L88 Convertible (Lot S188) and the last L88 Corvette (Lot S233) to roll down the assembly line.
