1954 Corvette: Abandoned Project

1954 CorvetteIt happens all too often, someone comes across a barn find, buys it, pulls it home, and starts tearing it apart. Then as life goes, other things get in the way and the project is left in pieces. The process then starts all over again, years later someone else comes across the unfinished project, buys it, tows it home, and starts working on it. If the car is lucky it will get finished, but far too often they never see the open road. The owner of this desirable ’54 Corvette found it in a barn, at which point it was running and driving. They started the restoration and now the car is not running and will need considerable work to be drivable again. Thankfully, they have realized they have to many other projects and aren’t ever going to get around to fixing it. They have listed it here on eBay, where bidding is already over $16k. So do you think this Vette will ever see the road again?
