[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.

The pictures of this 1966 Corvette barn find that were recently posted to Tumblr are amazing, but many questions still remain.

Former Barn Find 1960 Corvette Has Great Story Behind it

The story behind a Corvette is what makes it stand out in a crowd.

Take this 1960 Corvette, which has had just two very conscientious owners since rolling out of the factory in St. Louis, Mo., not once but twice.

The original owner, a teacher named Ed Graye from West Frankfort, Ill., ordered the car with the “big” 290hp, fuel-injected 283 engine with a three-speed manual because he wanted to drag race it on the streets.
