To swing open the barn doors to find an iconic Corvette that has been stored inside for years is an amazing rush to those that have experienced it. While we can’t always be there in person to watch as an old Corvette that’s covered in a layer of fine dust is pulled from the barn to outdoors, perhaps for the first time in decades, we can relive that feeling though pictures.
Sometimes things come cheaper by the dozen.

That’s how many second-generation Corvette Sting Rays are up for auction as a package deal right now on eBay. Bidding had reached $67,807.07 as of 9:00 am Eastern Time on Monday morning and so far the reserve has not yet been met.

There’s gold to be found on eBay and I swear I get a funky feeling inside when I come across the occasional barn find on the auction website.
Here’s a one-owner 1966 Corvette big block that’s been tucked away in a barn since 1981. The owner passed away a couple years ago and now his widow is selling the property which forces the sale of the Sting Ray.
Over the weekend, we featured a video from XCAR that was essentially a look at the C2 Corvette from the perspective of those in Europe. Here we have a video first published late last year of a 1966 427 Corvette Sting Ray Sport Coupe in Hong Kong. The classic Corvette has been converted to right-hand-drive and also has fixed Plexiglas headlights.
The video is in English and the cool Sting Ray gets the walk-around treatment before getting on the roads of Hong Kong. A pretty neat setting to see American Muscle.
