Here’s one of the better-looking barn finds we’ve run across lately, at least cosmetically.
This white 1960 Corvette roadster has been sitting in a garage for more than 27 years, according to an ad currently on craigslist in the San Francisco area.
The seller notes that the matching numbers engine is still in place, and while it doesn’t run, it does have compression.
“Great potential for restoration,” he adds.
The interior seems to be mostly intact, though in need of some sprucing up, but this one could be a nice car, seemingly without too much work.
The asking price reflects that assessment at $43,500, which might seem a tad high to some of you, though restored examples currently on the Internet range from $60,000 to more than $100,000. Sounds like someone could get into this one and not necessarily wind up too upside down, depending of course on how wild the restoration effort gets and what hidden problems are unearthed.
What’s your assessment? What do you think it would take to get this one back up to snuff?
