It’s been said that the Corvette is one of automotive’s most recycled cars and while that may be the case, it’s still a bit sad to see a Corvette whose only future is destined to be chopped and shopped.
We found this barn find 1971 Corvette on eBay with no reserve and the current bid at $760.
The seller claims the car has been stored in a barn and was pushed outside for pictures. “This car will be sold As Is for parts ONLY!!!!” says the ebay listing.
Judging from the photos, you can see the car pretty much has damage all the way around. It’s missing its left rear bumper, the interior is shot and most of the body panels show some sort of damage. The car was most likely in a major accident as the front of the car is all pushed in and the doors looks like they no longer fit correctly. The saving grace may be the engine which appears to have aged okay while in storage.
The car may been stored in a barn, but now that it’s outside, we see weeds creeping up inside the engine compartment. Cars stored in this condition don’t tend to hold up very well so it’s good the seller is trying to move it now.
If you’re interested in a Chevy V8 or any other parts that can be gleaned from this basket case, head over to eBay as the auction will close on Saturday evening.
