Barn Find: 1968 Corvette Convertible

As posted on the Corvette Forum, user Trophy Blue has a friend that found this 1968 Corvette Convertible with 34,000 original miles sitting in a barn. The Corvette was wrecked some 25 years earlier and the car was parked. According to the post, the Corvette sold for under $5,000.

For those that love barn stories in general, check out the post. Someone replied with a photo that shows 16 Chevelles rotting in a field. Of course you know that someday the owner is going to fix them up and sell them at Barrett-Jackson. He’s just “storing” them until he’s ready. From a pricing perspective this could be a real good buy depending on how the new owner can turn it around. It was the 1968 Corvette T-Top model that led the way at 17% in this year’s Top Appreciating Corvettes from our Corvette Price Guide. The one year appreciation figure for the 1968 Corvette Roadster is 11%.

  1. There was a 69 or 69 coupe 427 400hp with factory air in similar condition that sold in my area last year. It had low original miles, but had been wrecked front and rear in the early 70’s and never fixed. The engine compartment looked like a survivor car, and the interior was gorgeous, but it was twisted enough that the t-tops wouldn’t latch. That car brought $26K at auction.
