Corvettes on eBay: Barn Find 1965 Corvette Convertible


If you’d like to be driving a classic midyear Corvette by this summer, this might be your chance.

At least according to the current owner, who says this 1965 Corvette convertible will be “a very easy fix” for the winning bidder on eBay.

Right now, the highest of 34 bids has climbed to $25,700, which sounds like a pretty good deal for a C2 Corvette convertible that seems to be in decent shape from the photos.

The car comes with both tops, hard and soft, and also includes power steering, power brakes, tinted glass, and side pipes (though the owner doesn’t know if they are original or not).

The car was originally a four-speed but has been changed to automatic; however, the owner says all parts to make the conversion back to original will be included.

Also included are flywheel, factory 4-speed shifter, bellhousing, fan shroud and mounting bracket 4-speed shifter console, and water pump and pulleys.

He also notes that the frame appears to be free of rust and that the body panels are factory original. The factory blue paint has been customized at some time in the past.

As for the interior, the owner says the seats are nice, dash is ok, and passenger side door panel is a little worn. The old carpet was dirty and stinky, has been pulled out, and will need to be replaced.

He says he hasn’t tried to start the car, but is “sure it will run” since the motor turns freely by hand. The brakes will need to be checked out after sitting so long, but the tires are new because the old ones wouldn’t hold air from being parked.

The owner says he has set the reserve at $2,000 above what he paid for the car, which seems fair considering how long ago that was and how C2s have appreciated over the past two decades.
