[VIDEO] Barn Find 1963 Corvette SWC to be Offered 'As-Found' at Illinois Auction

Complete with dust and cobwebs, this 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe will be the latest barn find to be auctioned off, with a new chapter in its life due to begin next month in Illinois.

According to Sullivan Auctioneers of Hamilton, Ill., one of the largest real estate and farm machinery auctioneers in the country, this Corvette was bought in 1974 by the late James T. Spees of Carthage, Ill., and has not been licensed for the last 29 years. In fact, a video on the Sullivan website shows the car being loaded out of a metal building onto a rollback and carried away.

We don’t know many other details about the car, other than that it is red and has 39,000 miles on the odometer. It’ll be presented “as found” at the auction, “dust and cobwebs included!”

Based on the video, though, the body of this Corvette appears to be in very good shape, with no apparent damage. We couldn’t see the interior through the dirty windows, so we don’t know what kind of condition it’s in.

Now it’s being sold for the Spees family, one of the many vehicles being sold at no reserve at the Sullivan Auction on Monday, April 2 starting at 9 a.m.

  1. i had the pleasure of seeing this great car last june, interior is very nice, body is very nice, the car never spent a night outside, was is a section of the barn that was partitioned off from the rest, never exposed to any outside elements, lots of cars called barn finds, but this is a true barn find in every sense. best of all it was born riverside red with red interior, the bias ply blackwalls were all still holding air. really awesome car!!
