Another day, another beautiful barn find saved from obscurity. This time it’s a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette that’s surprisingly well kept on the outside. If you’re a hardcore Corvette lover, than you know that that’s good news, considering the rare Brands Hatch Green paint job makes this already desirable Corvette even more so.
 
The car has been hiding out in a barn since the early 1980s, and has only 47,400 miles on the odometer. According to the seller on eBay, the engine, transmission, and rear differential are all original—though, not everything is in working condition.

He notes that the engine doesn’t run and the brakes don’t work. But what makes this car so beautiful is the body and its fantastic condition. According to BarnFinds, the Brands Hatch Green paint was only used on around 3,000 vehicles, making this quite a find.
 
There is some corrosion on the chrome bumper by the rear license plate as well as at the base of the A-pillars, but this is still in incredible condition. The rare paint along with equally rare green vinyl interior make it quite a catch for the right collector.
