When I was at NCRS Orlando on Jan. 13, a 1963 Z went through the Mecum auction The bid got to $170,000 but didn't sell. The owner wanted $200,000. You could buy 4 2001 Zs for the price of 1 1963. Which is the better buy?

One of the '63 Z's would be a great companion for the 2001 Z.

It's worth it if you got it to spend.
I will also take a '67 L88, '56 SR2, '57 FI '63 Grandsport, how about a '63 Convertible with factory air

With the forecasted numbers for the 2001 and possibility of making a 2002, the '63 would be the hands down better investment. If the '63 is 100% stock/correct then $150k to $200k would probably be a good value. I saw a '67 427 coupe, which had a reasonable size production run, get $80k this weekeend on the barrett-jackson auction. A "real" '65 427 cobra, which are only slightly rarer than a '63 Z06 got $220k.

So... I ask GM, please keep the numbers down on the 2001 Z06 and do not use the name again for another 35+ years.

Pro-Team had one for sale recently. Can't remenber the price, but it was up there. I might check it out just for grins.

As an investment it will be MANY years before our cars begin to appreciate in value, like their 63 counterparts. If I wanted to invest the 50k I paid for my 06, I would have bought Tootsie Roll stock.

Interesting question...I would assume the vehicle that is doing the most appreciating would be the better buy and from the 170K bid that would be the '63!

I agree that the 63 is probably a better investment (if you can afford it) but the 01 is a better car.

Checked out the price at Pro-Team, they are asking 79K for the one they have, it was an export car, and came into the US from Switzerland by way of Canada I believe.

Hay come talk to me! For something less then $200K I would think about selling my original 1963 Z06. Included would be $20k of spare parts. For a look at the car see my web site www.z06vett.com

I don't think the 01 ZO6 will ever go UP in value... the '90 ZR-1 run was HALF what the '01 ZO6 run is going to be... you can get one of thoes for half what our ZO6 was, and the ZR-1 had a MSRP like 10,000.00 more than our ZO6...

ALSO -

Back then people did not buy a car just to keep it, they baught them for a reason. There are MANY '90 ZR-1's in plastic bag's with 2 miles on them, Never been driven a day in the life... people did not do that back then, which is why they are so rare besides the production run. I would be very, very shocked if the '01 ZO6 ever became worth anything at all.
