Here’s a great little project we found while perusing eBay’s Corvette auctions this week and for automotive archaeologists who relish true barn-finds, we bring you this 1954 Corvette.
This very original and complete 1954 Corvette had been stored in a barn since 1968. One of only 300 made in Pennant Blue, the Corvette shows deterioration from being stored yet according to the seller, the frame is sound and without rot.
The seller also claims the car has the correct numbers for the Blue Flame 6-cylinder engine, automatic transmission and rear end and he says he has confirmed that the engine is not seized up.
At some point in the life of this 1954 Corvette, flames were painted on the sides and the hubcaps were removed to show off the red-painted wheels. The front grille teeth are missing as well.
Check out these pics of this 1954 Corvette barn find on eBay:
Bidding on the 1954 Corvette has been pretty fierce with 34 bids received so far. The current bid for the car is $34,500 and it appears that the reserve price has already been exceeded. The auction will close in four days on Sunday at 9:00 pm ET.
