Milwaukee Barn Find Nets a Trio of Corvettes

I spoke before about the rarity these days of chancing upon a genuine barn find, and just as soon as I said something, an even bigger find popped up in Milwaukee. This time with three Corvettes, two ’57s and one 1963 Convertible, stashed in a neighborhood body shop garage attached to a small residential property. What a package deal!

Unlike the last story, these cars needed a bit more than just fresh gasoline and air in the tires. Their time in storage was clearly not so glamorous.

According to a MSN Autos report, of the two C1 Corvettes, one had seen much better days. It was in a pretty substantial wreck and didn’t have any driveline components. The other C1 was actually all there, with a complete drivetrain, but the bodylines were no longer original. It was in the process of looking like a Jaguar E-type with some alterations to the front fenders that never got completed.

The C2 was also mostly complete, but still had minor damage (they were in a bodyshop after all). It had been parked since the ’70s. Interestingly, in the house that was also on the property, an old roll of unusual film was found in an attic that had pictures of what bears a resemblance to the Mako Shark concept, though not much is known about the photo.

Will the next barn find be filled with as many unique stories? We will have to wait and see.
