You are bidding on a rare, 2-owner, BARN FIND, 1960 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. This is a survivor that does still run and drive! Zora Duntov actually drove this and the owners have a letter from his wife! The car was bought in 1972 and restoration started shortly after. It was put on the show circuit in 1976. Again it a survivor that is not numbers-matching but has a built 327ci motor with Holley carb, 4-speed transmission, dual exhaust and stainless steel brake lines.

Car was originally turquoise and white and was repainted the current black with all black interior too. The car has been sitting for the last 10 years for the most part. Some work has been done to keep it running but mainly has been parked. It could be put back on the road as is with some work or completely restored since most of the car looks to be original.

This is a rare classic car with a reserve to protect some of its value. The owner wants the car to sell in this first auction – so, if you are interested, bid on the auction. Bid retractions are not accepted. Retracting your bid for an incorrect amount without entering a corrected amount is a clear attempt to reveal the Reserve as well as a violation of eBay policy. We block bidders who violate this policy and also report the violation to eBay. If the Reserve is not met we will work with the high bidder to complete the sale.

The Body is very solid, nice, shiny, and straight for having been sitting for years and having a 40-year-old paint job. The car was purchased in 1972 and was restored over the next few years. It was an NCCC show car for many years. The car was enjoyed and driven for the next 40 years and is pretty much the way it was when built except the aging factor. There are no dents, dings, or major damage to the body except for minor scratches and a couple of chips from the long storage and one crack on the passenger side rocker. The 40-year-old paint still shines although the pictures make the car look way better than what it really looks like. Paint restoration/buffing would bring out the beauty again. There are a few areas that would require some paint touch up if you choose this route. All the stainless trim is present and most is in good shape. Some pieces have a few minor bumps and bruises but should be restorable. The chrome pieces are in fair-to-good shape with some minor pitting. Bumpers are nice and straight although there are some minor pitting and issues, but all could be restored or new NOS pieces used as replacements. Weatherstrippings are fair to good shape. A new convertible top was installed years back but has never been up so it probably doesn’t fit anymore. The hardtop is in great shape but the driver-side quarter glass is spider-webbed. Except for that, the glass is in great condition with no cracks or delamination. The windows, doors, trunk and hood operate as they should. The hood release mechanism will need repair. Again, this car has been sitting for years and still has all the dust and cobwebs! She needs a full detailing, polishing and mechanical systems check!

The Black Interior is in nice shape considering the age. Most of the interior is free from damage, rips or tears except for a couple of small holes in the driver’s seat and some other imperfections throughout the interior. Again, this car has been sitting for years and does have some rodent and mildew smell and will need a full interior detailing and/or replacement because its old. Most are still working; horn, instrument lights, oil pressure gauge, battery, temp gauge, headlights, radio, brake lights, speedometer, odometer and directionals. Marker light bulbs in rear are bad and do not work. The steering wheelis in good condition. Carpeting and the door panels are in decent shape.

The Drivetrain does operate! A battery was installed and it started right up without any issues, smoke or noise! The non original 327ci engine was rebuilt during the restorations and is untouched except for a Holley carb that was put on several years ago. The car does run. The 4-speed wide-ratio transmission appears to be a T-10 and is probably not original to the car (please see pictures) and runs and shifts as it should with no issues. Clutch seems to be fine too, no slipping or noise either. The master cylinder was changed out along with new stainless steel brake lines and brakes all of the way around several years ago but the job was never completed all the way. There are no back brakes and very little front brakes. The system probably needs to be bled. It is movable and will manage to stop at very low speed. The system needs to be gone through again. It has NOT been driven on the road or up past 15 mph. I did drive this around my yard and I don’t think there are any more issues. All systems need to be checked, serviced and inspected before putting back on the road.

The Undercarriageis good. I’m sure there are a few issues but I haven’t seen anything major with the body. The frame on the other hand does have at least 2 areas that are issues. First is a ¾” rust hole in the bottom of the frame, driver side where the frame straightens out. Second is the passenger side front leaf spring mounting area. It is cracked and rusted around the mounting bracket. Both probably could be repaired in place to make it a driver again. Fuel and brake lines appear to be in good condition. Exhaust appears to be in fair to good condition. Tires and wheels look good but tires are old nylon belted tires from many years ago. The old ET mags are heavily pitted and corroded.

Other info: Car comes with two sets of keys and clear Ohio title stating 87,416 miles.

I realize that it is difficult to purchase a vehicle you may not be able to inspect in person. I build vehicles too – so I try to show you everything I would want to see if I was buying a vehicle for myself. As you can see by my feedback (100% positive), I describe my vehicles accurately. I have sold other vehicles on eBay to happy buyers worldwide so you can be confident when making a purchase.

This description includes a video (the first picture should have a “Play” arrow on it). The video may not play on all mobile phones. Please view it on your computer if it doesn’t play on your cell phone.

I have made my best effort to accurately represent the car based on my expertise as a vehicle builder, what I have observed in evaluating it and preparing it for sale, and what I have been told by the owner, but this is the extent of my knowledge. Please ask questions before bidding! This is being solid AS IS with no warranty or guarantees and is up to the buyer to verify any and all info listed above in the description! This vehicle is also for sale locally. You are welcome to arrange a viewing of this vehicle.

Terms: Contact must be made by the buyer within 48 hours and a non-refundable $500 Paypal deposit is due within 48 hours of end of auction close, balance due within 7 days of auction close as cash or bank wire only. Due to space limitations and other upcoming auctions, buyer MUST take possession within 7 days of auction close unless other arrangements are agreed upon. I can store this vehicle for $125 a month (in advance) if you need time to make affordable shipping arrangements. Paid storage is in a dry, heated, secure indoor location. I do not finance. No trade or barter.

I am not responsible for any fees or taxes associated with registration, license plates or any out-of-pocket costs. Nor am I responsible for emissions compliance. Buyer is responsible for all state, county, city taxes & fees as well as title, registration, license plates and emissions compliance in the State/County that the vehicle will be registered. No warranty, sold as is.

Vehicles that are described as Estate or Barn Find have usually been sitting for several years. Unless otherwise noted, these vehicles need to have a system/safety check before embarking on any long road trips and are recommended to be trailered to your destination.

Shipping is the Buyer’s responsibility. I will not ship but will work with your shipping company. A list of contact information for some of the shipping companies previous Buyers have used can be provided upon request for your quotation and shipping needs. Pick-up arrangements (by the Buyer or the shipping company) must be coordinated in advance to insure my availability since I am often in and out on business. Local delivery may be possible within 200 miles of zip code 44056 for an extra charge. Buyer is responsible for all shipping and related arrangements and payments. Vehicle must be paid in full before it leaves my premises.

Insurance: I highly recommend that the buyer put insurance on the vehicle upon purchase as I am not responsible for any damage incurred after leaving my premises.

Please ask all of your questions and/or come see the vehicle before you bid because a bid is a commitment to purchase. As you can see by my feedback (100% positive), I describe my items accurately. I have sold other vehicles on eBay to happy purchasers.

Good luck and happy bidding!
