1959-corvette-031964 Corvette - Barn Stored for 30 years

This '64 Vette was recently pulled out of storage after sitting for 30 years. It looks to be pretty much intact with the exception of some poor modification decisions by a previous owner. Luckily the original engine and transmission are still there, although the heads are long gone. But the block and intake are matching numbers, so that's a start. Read the rest of this entry »

1959-corvette-031959 Chevrolet Corvette Uncovered

Barry sends in this 1959 Corvette that's been uncovered after a few decades. He said it was found in a guy's shop after sitting for 28 years. It comes with a fresh 283 matching motor, a 4 speed out of a 1961 Vette and both tops. It would be great to see a classic Corvette like this back on the road. Read the rest of this entry »

This is one of those I-Spy games. Can you find the muscle car hidden in these pictures? I'm told this twisted mass of rusted metal is a '67 Corvette. A 427 cid big block no less. But unless you've got a sharp eye for Corvettes you wouldn't know it. Read the rest of this entry »

1956-chevrolet-corvette-061956 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

This '56 Corvette shell and chassis has been sitting in storage for over 35 years. It was stripped in 1974 for a restoration, but as we all know sometimes real life gets in the way of our hobbies. The original 265 engine is long gone as is the rest of the drive train. No word on whether this was originally a 3 speed manual or a Powerglide automatic. Read the rest of this entry »

1955 Corvette

Sometimes those stories about a dream car tucked away in some old guy's barn aren't too far off. Here's a candidate for a really nice project. It's a 1955 Corvette that looks to be Pennant Blue. This was a super rare color with only 45 produced because it was replaced early in 1955 with Harvest Gold.

Actually all of the 1955 Corvettes are very rare, with only 700 produced. This was compared to 3,640 made the year before. The release of Ford's brand new Thunderbird was part of that sales decline and rumor was that the Corvette project would be short lived at GM.

Not much more info available on this car, but it sure would be fun to wrench on. Read the rest of this entry »

OUCH! These photos just make you cringe. The great thing about the Corvette fiberglass bodies is they don't rust. But catching on file and burning to the ground? Yeah, you still gotta watch out for that. Read the rest of this entry »

1966-corvette-convertible-031966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

Here's a cool little project that's been sitting in a North Carolina field. It's a 1966 Corvette convertible that someone started to do a resto-mod on. It's got a T10 four speed and Chevy 10 bolt rear end, but no motor. Interior is totally trashed (missing actually) and not sure what's going on with that left front tire. Maybe it's just the tire missing, but I don't see any spindle there either. As if there wasn't enough work to do on this car! Read the rest of this entry »

Yet another fire damaged Corvette. Those fiberglass bodies sure disintegrate in a hurry when they catch on fire. The source on both cars was the same, so you wonder if they were both torched in the same fire? Pretty expensive fire. Read the rest of this entry »
