Here’s one you might have missed earlier, unless you were following the Silverstone Auctions at the NEC classic car show late last year. It’s a 1963 C2 Corvette purchased new by Cliff Richard. Supplied to him in March 1963 when he was still living in Winchmore Hill, London and using his birth name of Harry Webb, the eye-catching roadster came with a 327cu in V8, four-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip diff.
It also came with a factory hardtop and was originally registered with the number 7 EXV. The car has been through the hands of Corvette specialists Claremont Corvette, which is where the current owner purchased it from. Despite being offered with lots of history, signed original log books etc., the car failed to sell at the auction and was retained by the current owner. It remains to be seen whether it will appear ‘movin’ and a-groovin’ at a future auction. (Image: Silverstone Auctions).
