This is no way to treat a 1963 Corvette split-window coupe. Found in Washington by one of Google StreetView's drones, there's actually no barn to this barn find, just a car left sitting in the gray mist that folks in the Pacific Northwest call "weather."

This Corvette had a 12-year shelf life, and then according to the owner, it's "been veggin' on the spot since '75." If you are interested, it's one of the fuel injected models and comes with an extra engine and other parts. Of course, if it's been sitting there for 34 years, it could fall to pieces when you try to move it... and you'll probably find more than a few dead (or perturbed) animals lurking thereabouts. But that wouldn't stop you, would it? Check out the gallery below of this forlorn '63 Vette.

      I have to drive by there, that is all of 3.5 miles from where I am sitting right now.

        would you like to do the world of auto enthusiasts a favor and save this amazing car?

      The C2 'Vette has to be one of the best looking cars ever made... The C1 and C3 are good looking cars too, but the C2 is a damn sexy car, imo.

      Yet another awesome find by Google Street View.

      Two thoughts:

      1. Dude never turned in his license plates?
      2. Maybe this is actually a retro Corvette concept car disguised as scrap iron?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Here in WA, you don't have to turn in your plates, at least not that I'm aware of. Do you have to turn in plates in other states?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Nor in NH, MN and MO where I've lived, but in MA you need to turn them in.
        • 5 Years Ago
        havn't had to return plates in GA, SC, and FL so far...
        • 5 Years Ago
        Not in PA. I still have my first car's plate somewhere.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Same in CA, I don’t think you have to turn in your plates. We also don’t get paper plate or have to have inspections. Just smog checks. Also, it's not a big deal to see a car here without plates because you assume it was recently bought.

        I never heard of turning plates in.

      Three taillights? That was a popular modification. Why I don't know!!

      Having lived in Spokane for quite some time, I can tell you that based on the location of the car it is probably being used as some sort of meth storage. When I was in high school I saw an ad for a '71 Mustang in the paper and begged my dad to take me to check it out. Turns out this Stingray is in that same area. It was tragic, some of the roads around that place are still gravel. Needless to say we booked it out of there and never looked at the 'Stang. Perhaps that's why I'm still alive to write this.

        i'm pretty sure he was referring to the possibility of meth labs and other illicit activities in the area
        • 5 Years Ago
        You got scared away by gravel roads?

        And I thought I was tough...

      My 64 looked just like that first time I saw it. $24k & 1550 hrs later, it looks a little better . I,m ready to move on now.

      That Google StreetView is cool stuff!

      Its really the AutoBot named "MarketingTRON"

      I don't know.... 34 years in a location that gets snow with the window open? Wouldn't that potentially turn the whole chassis to flakes of rust? I realize the body panels are fiberglass, but the chassis is not.

      Certainly the entire interior would have also turned to rotten goo by this point.
