This Chevrolet Corvette sells for $28,000 on eBay. In the US, this is how much a new Toyota Camry costs. In general, the price is pretty high. Perhaps, it is not so much, considering a rare Corvette of the first generation. Moreover, this is a car of the early series, when roadsters were equipped with a rare six-cylinder engine with a volume of about 4 liters.

A couple of years after the start of production, this engine was replaced by a more efficient V8. However, this specific Chevrolet does not have an engine at all, as well as taillights, some interior elements (including seats) and a huge variety of decorative details.

In the last century, an owner of the car was seemed to not care much about the future of his vehicle. It is worth noting that even the body paint has disappeared. However, this is not an amazing sight for 51 years of downtime.

The interesting thing is that the car has been preserved quite well. What is still left does not plan to fall off. The proper care of the body will not require much time and effort. It is necessary to search for the missing decorative elements and, of course, to get an engine somewhere…
