We first featured this crazy rattle can panel painted Vette back in 2013 when it was ostensibly hauled from the garage of a guy (we’ll call him Larry) who owned it from 1974-2013 — now it is featured sans faux side header-pipes, but with some egregious ill fitting drag style wheels (front and rear). Find this 1965 Chevrolet Corvette C2 here on eBay bidding for $19,100 reserve-not-met with 5 days to go, located in Lompoc, CA.
Oddly enough the old ebay listing still exists in some kind of zombieBay format and we can see that the car sold (in nearby Ventura, CA) for $23,999 after 45 bids. It will be interesting to see where the reserve is set and how much the Hotrod Ranch wants/expects to make from this “barn find.”
Equally interesting is the fact that this new seller is keen to play up the “street racer” history, even though the previous sale included less aggressive wheels/tires. Good luck going over a speed bump with those rear rolling pins installed. Funnier still is the fact that the engine bay has not been cleaned from the “barn find” even though the valve cover has been replaced. This car is just full of interesting little things.
