Corvettes on eBay: 1969 Corvette 427 Field Car


Just when this 1969 Corvette coupe probably thought it was going to suffer a lonely demise in the middle of a field somewhere in Delaware, there’s hope for this beautiful C3 now that the long-time owner is trying to sell it on eBay.

Despite not having its original 427 engine or 4-speed transmission, the car shows just how much love that enthusiasts have for the ’69 model. With bidding set to end Tuesday night, already 24 bids have been placed, jacking the price to $4,335 for a car described as “definitely a project car” and one that “needs a lot of restoration,” as the seller kindly puts it in his listing.

He writes that he took the Corvette in on trade several years ago and we figure with time marching on, he has come to the realization that he’s not going to attempt an extensive restoration himself.

While photos show some major body and interior work will be required, along with tending to some rust scattered throughout, we’d love to see someone bring this long-neglected beauty back to life.

427 Corvettes from this era draw big bucks on the current market, with a quick search on the internet finding sellers asking anywhere from $50,000 to $99,000 for nicely restored examples. Indeed, depending on the type of 427, horsepower ranged anywhere from 390 to 435 back in the day.

What do you think about the potential of this one? With only 22,129 coupes made in 1969, it would be a shame if this one never made the trip back to respectability, wouldn’t it?

  1. I like the green moss growing on the steering column. Who ever buys this basket case should leave the leaves on the car, just glue them on.

    How people could let what was once a premium automobile get like this is beyond me. The car didn’t deserve this!

  2. Sorry but this is not even a parts car. Real shame probably 10 people asked if car is for sale but no I’m gonna restore it , real soon.

  3. Count on a new chassis and birdcage. I love the ebay ad “Limited Edition”. As Scott stated, how does someone let a great car like this get to this condition?
