1970 Nova sitting in MA. Small block car that looks like its been sitting for years.
This 1969 442 has been sitting off a well traveled road for a very long time. Never an answer at the door. Bucket seats.
I have been hearing rumors about this car for about seven years now. Every sway meet I go to I hear about the "All original, matching numbers, SS 396 Chevelle convertible sitting for about 30 years" A few days ago my buddy tells me about this big block chevelle convertible sitting behind a co-workers house and they are looking to sell it. I naturally go and check it out right away and realize that this car is the one I have been hearing about from a few people who have heard about it and so on. I get the owner at a price we can both live with and after a few hours of getting it out of where it was, I brought it home. He tells me it has been sitting since the early 70's. The only thing that saved this car was the truck cap he had sitting on it. 1966 SS 396-360 horse, 4-speed, 12 bold posi with 3.73's, console and buckets. All matching numbers down to the distributer.
Found this car in MA sitting under a tarp. Right next to it is an Olds under a tarp. Looks like its been sitting for a few years. Knocked with no answer, went back to my car to write a note and a car pulls in the driveway. The brother of the guy who owns it tells me has owned the Corvette forever and probably won't ever sell it.
