The moment this 1969 Corvette coupe presumably believed it was going to perish alone in a Delaware field was when it was discovered
Although the car lacks its original 427 engine and 4-speed transmission, it still demonstrates how much fans adore the ’69 model. With 24 bids already submitted, the price of the car, which the seller kindly describes in his listing as “definitely a project car” and one that “needs a lot of restoration,” has risen to $4,335 with the bidding set to end Tuesday night.
He claims to have traded in the Corvette for it many years ago, so we assume that as time has passed, he has realized he won’t try a major restoration himself.
We’d love to see someone revive this long-forgotten beauty, even if images indicate that some significant body and interior work, as well as taking care of some rust sprinkled throughout, will be required.
A short internet search reveals that vendors are asking anything between $50,000 and $99,000 for tastefully repaired specimens of this generation’s 427 Corvette. Indeed, the horsepower of 427s at the time ranged from 390 to 435, depending on the kind.
What do you think about this one’s potential? It would be a tragedy if this coupe never returned to respectability since there were only 22,129 produced in 1969.
