[i]This is the ultimate Corvette "barn find". This corvette was delivered to Mr. Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, on December 15, 1966 from Jim Rathman Chevrolet in Melbourne, Florida under a program initiated by Mr. Rathman to provide our astronauts with a Corvette. They would keep the Corvette for a year and then turn it in and get a new one.
This Corvette was bought by a NASA employee when Mr. Armstrong turned it in and was retained by the owner until I purchased the corvette from him in February of 2012.
The Corvette had been in a climate controlled environment and not driven since Sept. of 1981. I had tried to buy the Corvette for the past 30 years with no luck until a phone call led to the purchase recently.
As can be seen in the pictures the car has 30+ years of dust and has had fender flares crudely added by the owner during it's time in storage. The only thing that has been done to the car since I purchased it is to get the motor running where it can be moved about the garage...[/i]
