Corvettes on eBay: Garage Find 1970 Corvette Parked Since 1976

As the former owner of a fully restored 1971 Corvette LT1 coupe that I took a beating on with the economic downturn in 2009, this 1970 LT1 convertible up for sale on eBay through Tuesday night at 8:15 really caught my eye.

The lines of the car make it one of the most beautiful Corvettes ever built, in this writer’s opinion.

But sometimes beauty comes coupled with a beast, especially in this case.

As the seller notes repeatedly, this car needs everything!

Corvettes on eBay: 1978 25th Anniversary Corvette with 15 Miles

Today we bring you yet another low-mileage 1978 Corvette.

Way back when the ‘Vette was celebrating its 25th anniversary and I was still a teenager, some folks got the idea that they would buy one – or more – of these “special” Corvettes and hang on to them to sell for a war pension sometime in the future.

‘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.

[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.

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.
