Some believe that describing a vehicle in extreme detail is what’ll sell it, along with a detailed picture of every rock-chip or any other imperfection on the car. Others would argue that it is all in the way you present these details. The creator of the eBay listing for this 1953 Chevrolet Corvette, however, shows us that sometimes cars just sell themselves.
Not literally, after all, they did make the listing. But as Corvette Blogger points out, the only words they offered in the description are: “1953 Corvette. Car runs and drives. See attached pictures.” The seller did provide 19 pictures though, and those show that this one-of-300 1953 Corvette is far from show car-condition. Even so, there was 1 bid of $100,000 placed. Which, by the way, did not meet the reserve.
We’ll have to agree with Corvette Blogger on this, it’s very likely that a dealer or restorer scooped this Corvette up. The lack of info provided by the seller, the very quick sale, the fact that there are even less than the original 300 that were produced, and the fact that the parts for the 1953 model year are very hard to come by, are all the points that led us to this conclusion.
Here’s a link to the “ended” listing.
