parked in 1968? I'm calling the BS flag on that one.
Brenton Cozby May 26, 2012
seriously though. how do people forget about these cars? after 10 years you'd think they'd realize they're not using it and sell it

It's a C1, C2s were stingrays, started in 63 with that Split Window.
Lee Riddle May 25, 2012
C2 had pop up headlights
Jeepster Hemi Cusano May 25, 2012
It's a C2, look at the headlights.

my guess. he bought after a return home from war. then drove the hell out of it. then the owner was sent to Vietnam. if this car could talk. oh and people stop selling these beauts on ebay... it's so 2004. i would think private auction would have been a better route. ebay fees will be in the thousands...

Jesus, where are these mythical, treasure trove barns at?!
Jessica Rivera May 25, 2012
Wow, he put 93k miles in 7 years, in the 60's! That a lot
Description: Professional restorers may very well end up fighting over the chance to completely rebuild a car that could be somewhere in the neighborhood of six-figures. In its current condition it is up for sale ...

Then the reserve is too high. 93k is too much and the car is too far from driveable. Nobody is going to pay over 40k for a bad starting point for an expensive restoration. Best hope is finding a guy who likes the story and wants a driver.

The best part of waking up isn't Folgers in your cup...its finding a C1 Vette in your garage!
drew May 25, 2012
is it even possible to just park that car?
SupaDupaMe May 25, 2012
After u look at the other pics... U get the sense that this restoration is going to need a lot of time and money.... Gonna be worth it thought

Paul Lissona May 25, 2012
And I couldn't ever let a car get a thousandth this dirty, neglected even.
Trent Bourgeois May 25, 2012
I wished someone would have in my garage. It wouldn't be going to auction.
Tony Flaherty May 26, 2012
What I can't believe is that some idiot is after offering $7,600 of his hard earned cash for this shit heap.
Tony Flaherty May 26, 2012
Must be the worst wiper design ever.
Dylan Bruder May 25, 2012
The whole car is beautiful

Looks like a Toyota floor mat... Once that thing starts, it's out the other end of that barn!
Carlton Sofocusedon Green May 25, 2012
Such a tiny tach
Andrew McNeal May 26, 2012
Seems like a lot of towels and a water hose would go a long way towards cleaning up this Vette in and out, not too bad
Justin Routh May 25, 2012
Id get to running condition and get it past 99,999 back to zero get 2k miles on it and restore it make it look like a 2k mile original lol
