Even covered with cobwebs and dirt, this black-on-black 1969 Corvette, complete with side pipes, strikes a sinister pose sitting in a metal building.
Now the owner has decided to part with his chrome-bumper Stingray, which has been sitting for the past 25 years or so after purchasing it. Click here to view the eBay listing.
He planned to restore it but admits he has too many projects right now and has decided to give someone else a chance to rejuvenate the car, which was produced the second year of the third generation.
A quick glance at the car doesn’t reveal significant body issues, so a simple wash job might reveal that it could be turned into a show-stopper without too much trouble. “It doesn’t appear to have any accident damage,” as the seller puts it.
Likewise, he says the car was running when it was parked a quarter of a century ago so he believes it shouldn’t have “any major issues” now with the 350/350 horsepower engine that’s hooked to a four-speed manual transmission. It’s also equipped with T-tops, air conditioning, manual steering and brakes, power windows, and tilt-tele steering wheel.
The interior needs some work, with the console missing, among other things, but on the bright side, the black leather seats have already been restored.
The auction ends Monday at 10:13 p.m. So far, seven bids have reached $7,000. The seller claims the reserve is low, so someone might just pick up a bargain with this car.
First, though, they’ll need to bring a trailer to bring it home.
