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.
If you’re in the market for a mid-year big block convertible barn find, you may want to head over to eBay Motors and take a look at what they have on the auction block—there’s a 427/390 hp ’66 Sting Ray that may be beckoning to you.
We’ve all heard about the used car that was only driven on Sundays by a little old lady.
Well, here’s a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe that apparently really was driven by an older lady throughout its history before it was parked in a barn in 1973 and left there for the next 41 years.
The barn find was listed on eBay and reached $45,544 before the bidding ended early today.
There’s gold to be found on eBay and I swear I get a funky feeling inside when I come across the occasional barn find on the auction website.
Here’s a one-owner 1966 Corvette big block that’s been tucked away in a barn since 1981. The owner passed away a couple years ago and now his widow is selling the property which forces the sale of the Sting Ray.
This 1968 L88 Corvette has come a long way since we first saw it as a fresh barn find in 2008.
The former psychedelic-painted racer was found in North Florida by our friends at ProTeam Corvette who rehabbed the street-raced L88 that was known locally as “Bounty Hunter”. Armed with a pedigree of awards, the Rally Red Convertible is headed to Mecum’s Monterey Auction in August where it will be offered for sale.
They’re still out there.
That’s the mantra repeated by Corvette collectors and restorers continuously in search of the next treasure that’s been tucked away out of sight for years. Sometimes those finds are rarer than others like this 1 of 3 known black/black 1965 big tank coupe on display at Bloomington Gold last weekend.
Few things increase the revs in our car collector’s hearts more than the prospect of a barn find — you know, your dream car that somebody put in a barn and never came back to collect. A little worn and thoroughly dirty, but mostly there, just waiting for someone to come along and give it a good home.
The debate had ranged for months.
To wash or not?
