Corvettes on eBay: Garage Find 1970 Corvette Parked Since 1976

As the former owner of a fully restored 1971 Corvette LT1 coupe that I took a beating on with the economic downturn in 2009, this 1970 LT1 convertible up for sale on eBay through Tuesday night at 8:15 really caught my eye.

1968 L88 Corvette Sells for $330,000 at Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas

On Saturday evening at Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas auction, this red/red 1968 L88 Corvette found a new home for the low, low price of $330,000. That’s somewhat surprising given the fact that other 1968 L88 Corvettes have sold for quite a bit more at recent sales.

So what may have caused this prized performance sports car to stumble at BJLV?
