We’ve stumbled across another cool unrestored Corvette listed on eBay. Early last week we found the 1953 Survivor up for bids and now we’ve got this silver 327/350hp 1966 convertible seeking a new home. The hidden roadster was pulled from a barn in 2010 and claimed a Bloomington Gold Survivor Award in 2012.
Here is an honest to goodness Corvette barn find that just saw the light of day in California. According to a posting on the Corvette Forum by “Bruce at Billet”, this original one-owner 1963 Corvette was last on the road in 1979. It was parked in that barn for whatever reason, where it sat untouched for 33 years.

Some folks can’t understand the love affair a man can have with his Corvette.
But Joe Munch and his family understand it oh so very well.
Sunday, Munch will show off his one-owner 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the Old Town Motorfest in Saginaw, Michigan.

Visitors to Bloomington Gold’s Great Hall this year were immediately greeted by barn fresh and very rare 1957 fuel injected Corvette recently rescued from years of storage before reaching the main display area. The car was presented with all the dirt, dust, and debris still present on it. The Bloomington Gold folks were taking a survey to learn the public’s opinion on what to do with the car. To help out, take the survey after the jump and we’ll forward on the results.
The 1961 Corvette continued its design evolution with the model year becoming the first C1 without the distinctive teeth grill as well as the first year to feature dual tail lights. However, my Black Book says nothing about a LEER camper option which makes me think this could be an aftermarket modification. The ad just hit Craigslist last night but you’ll find the description to be incredibly terse for someone trying to sell a classic Corvette.
This 1969 Corvette T-Top Coupe had been left in the care of mother nature for an extended length of time with predictable results. No explanation as to why it came to be parked and left to the weather and rodents. Was it as simple as “it’s not running right, I’ll fix it next week” or maybe “not sure what the knocking noise is but better not drive it”?
Here is a fairly original 1959 Corvette that was stored away in a barn somewhere in Wisconsin since the mid-sixties. The Corvette was recently willed to a nephew following the death of the owner and the nephew’s friend shared these pictures on the Corvette Forum. Many times, we’ll see barn cars only after they’ve been pulled out of their cocoon so it’s great to see the new owner documenting the classic C1 straight-axle in its surroundings where its been stored for 40+ years.
