When it comes to iconic barn finds, the Corvette is one of the most coveted to come across, especially fuel injected Corvettes. This 1961 Corvette was pulled from a barn and is now road worthy. It’s a number matching car, but needs some work. Take a look at this Fuelie here on eBay.
The seller claims this is the original 283 cui V8, but the fuel injection system has been swapped out for a carburetor. The fuel injection system is still with the car, but needs to be rebuilt. The seller claims this Vette runs and drives nicely. They don’t state whether it is the 275 or 315 horsepower motor, but either way it will be a fun. Just be sure to do your due diligence before bidding.
The interior is complete, but is in need of some freshening up. Not only did this one come with fuel injection, but it also came with a four speed manual, which makes it even better.
Early fuel injected Corvettes can fetch up to six figures, but this one is going to require a complete restoration to even come close to that. The seller’s estimate of $30k to finish it seems conservative and it will likely take more than that to complete. For the right price though, this could be a good buy.
