I was on the local volunteer fire dept years ago and a barn fire happened and a 66 Corvette convertible was pushed out and saved from damage. Eventually the owner moved it to another guys where it was along a state road and everyone stopped to look. It wasn't for sale. It was blue, big block, 4 speed,  Drivetrain gone. I can't remember how much interior was in it. Might have been 6-8 years ago.  I now farm behind where the barn was and last 3 years its been parked there.  Here's a sad site in head high weeds.

I can't understand the logic behind people holding on.

I would be all over that Bill. Have a talk with that guy for me. A 65, 66, or 67 is on my list. It would be nice just to see pics of what it looks like under the tarp...
I know you have looked at picking up another car, maybe a Corvette is in your future. You never know what could happen, I have gotten a few cars just from staying in contact with guys, some of them actually part with them.

Some don't:

 I was in a similar situation with a Corvette about ten years ago. It was a 64 vette that was a true barn find, and had the chicken feathers and mice infested interior to prove it. The lady wanted 50k back then! I thought why keep the car in that condition. She probably still is "storing" it in that barn.

That ladies family will end up dealing with a car that's a mess.
I am curious what's living in the vette! I don't remember the body being junk. I don't remember a top. I might look into it. I have no idea what it's worth either

Not much.... especially if the VIN is on a "hot list".  That would be my biggest fear on one of these "Barn Finds".  Smiley

lol, hey Jano I think it has the hardtop on it and is facing away from the picture taker.

Bill is a real cool cat, I wouldn't be able to resist going over and lifting the tarp to check it out. Shocked

I see it !   Glass body.... right ? mmm....  Hang it on a S & W chassis, can not imagine much left underneath Cry would make a nice toy to haul up to Norwalk Bill. 42 should be up and running next season. All new. Lots of fun running those Gasser meets.....just a thought Grin
