Corvette JRG Special Race Coupe Heads for Auction
Besides the obvious lack of a folding fabric roof that was replaced with the optional ‘419’ hardtop, this car also differs from the original Corvette via its removed bumpers and hubcaps, but other than that, it’s not heavily modified for racing.
In 1989, the JRG Corvette got a new owner who wanted to take it drag racing, and as such cut the rear arches to accommodate huge tires, but it has since been brought back to regular racing condition via a 12-month long restoration. Bonham’s say they expect the car to sell for somewhere between €55,000 to €65,000.
