[PICS] 1966 Corvette Big Block Barn Find

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.

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.

A lawsuit filed recently claims that the psychedelic pop artist of the 1960s – who once painted an entire Boeing 777 and a 600-foot stage for the Woodstock Music Festival – hasn’t paid two New York men the commissions he allegedly promised them for handling the sale of the 36 Corvettes.

1964 Fuel Injected Corvette Garage Find

Here’s a garage find C2 Sting Ray with an interesting past.

After being driven sporadically by the owners for a couple of years, this 1964 Corvette coupe has been sitting in a garage on jack stands since sometime in early 1973. The long-time owner died earlier this summer, and the car was dug out from the garage and sent all the way across the country to a fellow named Rick F on the West Coast.

[VIDEO] Peter Max Corvette Collection to be Sold at Auction

For years, Corvette enthusiasts have been intrigued by the Peter Max Corvettes, that collection of 36 Corvettes owned by the pop art star who became famous in the 1960s.

The Corvettes, one each from 1953 through 1989, were the grand prize in a VH1 contest back in 1989, with a carpenter from Long Island chosen as the lucky winner.
