Check out this unbelievable Barn Find featuring a 1965 Corvette Sting Ray Convertible! We first caught these photos on our website of all places over the weekend via Corvette seller Mike Furman and his Sunday delivery post, and have since tracked them back to a Facebook post from an Ohio-based towing company.
Speedy’s Towing and Recovery of St Louisville, OH shared these photos of a Nassau Blue 1965 Corvette Convertible that was literally buried under mounds of garbage and debris. The before and after photos say it all!
Once they dug down and cleared the junk away, they were able to roll out a numbers-matching 1965 Corvette with the fuel-injected 327/375 hp V8 engine. According to the Facebook post, the Nassau Blue Sting Ray was parked in the late 1960s and it has just 47,000 miles on the odometer.
From the photos, we see the tires look like they were sitting flat for years, but they hold air and the towing company says the brakes weren’t lock up so the car was able to be rolled out of the garage before being winched up on the flatbed.
Usually the story ends there with a new owner having an old Corvette to restore, but this car is now for sale at Phil Stalling Classic Cars in Utica, Ohio:
