Corvettes on eBay: Burnt but Still Viable 1957 Corvette Fuelie

‘Tis better than to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

That old quotation pops to mind about this 1957 Corvette Fuelie currently being auctioned on eBay.

Just a few months ago, this was a completely restored Corvette, one of just 713 produced with fuel injection that year. It’s also one of just 664 four-speed 1957 Corvettes and has the correct numbers-matching engine.

Then disaster struck, with a dash fire leading to the damage you see in these photos.

CORRECTION: 1960 CERV 1 Sale Still in Play According to Mike Yager

UPDATE: We heard from Mike Yager this morning after we published an article regarding the sale of the 1960 CERV 1 (Chevrolet Engineering Research Vehicle) at RM’s Monterey Auction. He told us that the price was incorrect and that negotiations with a potential buyer are continuing.

We’ve pulled the incorrect article and will wait for final confirmation as to the status of one very cool prototype.

We apologize for the confusion.


[PICS] 1972 Corvette Field Car Gets a Second Chance on eBay

Barn finds and field cars.

It’s always seemed to me that when looking at pictures of a barn find Corvette, no matter what the condition, there is an emotion that feels almost magical. The sight of a Corvette sitting outside in a field where it’s at the mercy of the elements brings up feelings that are exactly opposite.

Seeing a Corvette rotting away in a field or backyard is just sad. But thanks to eBay, there is hope that these Corvettes might get another chance.

We’re hoping this 1972 Corvette field car that recently sold on eBay falls into that category.

But that’s the story behind this impressive time-capsule of a Corvette that will be auctioned off at the Rick Cole Monterey Auction Aug. 13-15 at the Marriott Hotel near Fisherman’s Wharf.

Corvettes on eBay: Little Pink Corvette by Legendary Customizer Larry Watson

It’s not very often that we get to write the description of a Corvette as “pink on pink.” But that’s the case with this wild 1969 Chevy customized by the legendary Larry Watson that is now for sale on eBay.

This might be just the ticket for Barbie, if she wants a retro Corvette to ride around with Ken.

Corvettes on eBay: The Force is With This Star Wars Themed 1974 Corvette

Back in 1977, a young filmmaker named George Lucas changed pop culture forever with the release of the first Star Wars movie. That film not only ushered in cool special effects, it set the standard (in the immortal words of Spaceball’s Mel Brooks) for movie merchandising and soon Star Wars branded toys and accessories were everywhere.

Obviously, the first Star Wars movie made an impact on the former owner and creator of this special 1974 Corvette which showcases many scenes from the movie with hand airbrushed murals painted on every body panel.

With the next installment of the movie franchise due in December 2015, it’s timely that this Star Wars branded Corvette Stingray is now for sale on eBay.
