There was a blue sport car which was hidden from the outside world under the rubbish. It is old garages and abandoned sheds that we found cars in very remote places. Sometimes, they literally have to be dug up. Just like this 1965 Corvette that was found in a collector’s garage under a big pile of garbage. This particular sport car was hidden under the trash for some decades. Fortunately, the car was found 50 years after it was put in the garage.
Blue Corvette from 1965
This unique blue Corvette left a garage for the last time in 1984. After purchase, the sports car was been used for only three years. The owner then decided to emptied the gas tank completely, took out the battery and loosened the wheel covers, which he put in a bag and placed it in the car. He then locked it and walked away. To this day, nobody can explain the basic reason why the owner left a three-year-old sports car in the garage.
Speedy’s Towing & Recovery from St. Louisville, Ohio, found the unique sports car after the owner died. The once bright blue car was then taken out of the garbage and moved to Phil Stalling Classic Cars where it was cleaned and placed on eBay for $50,000 (more than 43,000 euros).
Present condition of the car
The advertisement indicates that the car has some rust on the frame. It also has a completely original body (with a slightly damaged hardtop) and some small dents and damage. According to the advertisement, the exterior of the car doesn’t require any replacement. The wheel covers were removed from the bag and reattached to the wheels. Meanwhile, the family of the owner has not found any original paperwork, original keys or the soft top.
Covered under waste
The daughter of the original owner wasn’t even aware that Corvette was in the garage until a close friend of her father informed her about it. “The people she hired to clean the garage later reported that they had found a Corvette in the garage”, said the new owner of the car. Also, Stalling of Phil Stalling Classic Cars says “You hear things like this happening, but when it happens to you, it is very different”. “This is one of the best car finds we have had” they concluded.
