Corvettes on eBay: 1965 Barn Find Corvette Has Been Parked Since 1977


Here’s a 1965 Corvette coupe barn find that’s been in the same family since new.

The seller, located in Miami, Fla., says he bought the car from the person who’s owned it since 1971 when he bought it from his brother, the original owner.

The car has been parked since 1977, sitting in a garage, though the owner would turn the motor once a year to ensure it was still working okay. Even now the motor still turns manually.

Speaking of the motor, it’s got the original 327/365 hooked to a 4-speed transmission and has been driven just 34,000 miles over the past 53 years.

The seller says the car remains solid with no rust – “straight car, great body, body lines, body gaps.”

The interior is also said to be in “very nice” condition. The car comes with a teakwood steering wheel, the original jack, and the original rare power antenna. Windows go up and down, and the doors open and close great, according to the seller.

He originally planned to restore the car but says now if he can sell it as is, he’ll just do that.

Right now, the opening bid request is $39,999, with no offers made yet, and the car is being offered at no reserve. We’re assuming that means someone could theoretically get into this C2 Corvette with a lot of potential for less than $40,000. This could be a reasonable way to get into this generation if you’re on a budget and would also allow you to apply your own personal touches to a classic Sting Ray.

  1. Pretty tough looking for a 34,000mi car. Doesn’t appear to have had an easy life to this point.

  2. Original color was ? Dark blue, black or Honduras Maroon? Other than an unoriginal hood, it looks pretty “original”. Did it once have factory sidepipes or, like the American Racing mags and the ’67 big block hood, were they just go-fast add-ons?

  3. Here’s my question. Why did people park Corvettes in a barn, garage, or what ever? They don’t park Buicks, Dodges, or any of those boring cars but the seem to want to save a Corvette. Interesting. Like they already know that they are something special but it hasn’t really sunk in yet “Why”.
