Corvettes on eBay: 38K Mile 1966 Corvette Barn Find Parked Since 1976


This 1966 Marlboro Maroon Corvette convertible was driven into a barn in western Pennsylvania and parked in 1976 and hasn’t moved over the past 41 years, according to its seller on eBay.

The seller became aware of the classic C2 Sting Ray while liquidating some of his father-in-law’s estate. He found the Corvette under tarps in the barn on his father-in-law’s farm.

Further investigation discovered the car to be completely original mechanically, he says, though it apparently has been repainted at some point.

Included in the sale is a color matching hardtop, but the listing doesn’t talk about any other options. We do know that the interior is black.

The mileage on the odometer is impressive, reading just 38,308 miles, which the seller says he knows to be correct.

The engine is a 327 and warrants further investigation by any purchaser. In an update, the seller believes it to be a 300 horsepower version, though his brother-in-law told him at first posting that it was a 350 hp.

“Since the car is completely original (save paint??), all numbers should be matching as one would expect with an original stock car,” the seller says. “I have not verified this but I have no reason to believe otherwise.”

He says his mother-in-law is still living at the farm and is not aware of any issues or modifications made to this car.

With no body damage anywhere to the car, the seller notes “this is a perfect candidate for restoration, or just freshen it up and drive it.”

The bid is up to $31,600, with activity closing this Saturday.

  1. I find myself wondering a few things. If it was only 10 years old when it was parked and was never damaged then why would it have been repainted? Why is the interior partially dismantled? Why is it wearing ’65 wheel covers? The lower portion of the ignition shielding appears to be missing (not unusual), and the engine compartment doesn’t appear to have aged very well — was it a leaky barn?
