Forgotten 1969 Corvette Pulled from the Weeds

Forgotten 1969 Corvette Pulled from the Weeds

This 1969 Corvette T-Top Coupe had been left in the care of mother nature for an extended length of time with predictable results. No explanation as to why it came to be parked and left to the weather and rodents. Was it as simple as “it’s not running right, I’ll fix it next week” or maybe “not sure what the knocking noise is but better not drive it”?

Note the traces of red in the blackberry and brush to the right of the hole where the Corvette had been parked. That vehicle is a mid-50′s Chevrolet dump truck!

The good news is that the Corvette has been rescued and now awaiting a complete restoration at the Corvette & High Performance restoration shop in Olympia, WA. Check out these photos showing the ’69 Corvette just after it was pulled from the weeds:
