A General Motors Corp. Chevy SSR VIN 2 model netted a winning bid of $137,850 on the eBay online auction site May 5.

The bid was placed by Bob McDorman of Bob McDorman Chevrolet in Canal Winchester, OH, in the final two minutes of the auction.

GM announced a year ago it would be auctioning 25 Signature Series SSRs. GM had said the proceeds from the second SSR built would be given to the SAE Foundation, but the organization now says it is donating the money from the eBay auction to the Heinz C. Prechter Award for Automotive Excellence. The award, named after the late founder of ASC Inc. who worked on the SSR before his death, will benefit college students.
