If you’re looking for some used Corvette parts to help with a restoration, this might be your big chance.
Eric and Keith Hay, owners of Wayne Auto Parts in Dover, Ohio, say after 57 years it’s time to retire so they will be shutting their doors for good at the end of June unless someone buys the land before then.
They originally planned to close at the end of 2013 but soon found out “we have a lot of stuff to sell,” as they put it in their Craigslist ad.
That stuff includes 110 Corvettes they have collected since 1970 in varying stages of being torn apart – but “no complete rebuildable cars,” they say.
The Hays say that they have Corvette parts from 1968 to 2003 for sale – “mostly used parts, engines, trans, wheels, headlights, doors, hoods, bodies, etc., all kinds of parts.”
This might be a good opportunity to pick up some parts for early model Corvettes as the photos with the ad show what looks like a Corvette hospital.
But you might want to hurry. An addition to their ad says the car crusher is there this month and “a lot” of the Corvettes may be smashed.
By the way, the owners say you can buy the land with or without everything on it, meaning this might be your chance to open up a Corvette salvage yard.
