You might say I’m a pack rat. I still have my Eagles and Bob Seger t-shirts from my first concerts in 1977, along with my Members Only jackets from the 1980s, hoping they’ll one day come back in style.
That’s just the kind of garb that would fit right in when you climb behind the wheel of this barn find 1961 Corvette roadster.
This virtual time machine is currently up for sale for $50,000 on Kijiji after coming out of 25 years of storage, apparently in Calgary, Canada.
Yes, the body is currently sporting a wild 1970s custom paint job that appears to have not been totally completed. But at least it hasn’t been modified with fender flares and other custom touches from that time frame, though we can’t see the rear of the car in the photos provided to know for sure.
We also don’t know much about the mechanicals, other than the car has a dual quad 245 horsepower engine and a manual transmission of some sort.
It goes without saying that the original wheels are apparently long gone, replaced with likely decades-old wire wheels.
Moving to the interior, we find non-original seat covers and an after-market shifter, both of which are easily manageable. All the gauges are there, though we don’t know if they work or not.
The seller admits the car “will need restoration” or a buyer could “drive as is with a little tinkering.”
We’re not sure about the asking price, but if this can be negotiated downward, it might be a good project car for someone. Anyone interested in buying an original Eagles t-shirt or maybe a Tom Selleck Hawaiian print shirt after they finish the restoration?
