Neil Armstrong's 1967 Corvette Sting Ray for sale as ultimate barn find

An eBay auction for a beat-up 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, purportedly first owned by astronaut Neil Armstrong, ended Sunday evening with a final sky-high hammer price of $250,090. But despite the astronomical bid, the seller may have not sold the first moonwalker's car. The highest bid for the sports car described as the "ultimate Corvette 'barn find '" failed to meet the seller's hidden reserve, the price above which he was obligated to sell. The seller could still choose to sell the car for the $250,090 offered, which appears to have been clearly focused on the claim that Neil Armstrong had driven the car rather than its make, model or condition. Although described as stored in a climate-controlled environment, the Corvette Sting Ray has not been driven since 1981. "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 seller wrote on eBay. "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." To prove its pedigree, the seller presents the car's original General Motors "Protect-O-Plate," a factory issued metal tag that displays the name of the car's original owner. A carbon rubbing of the raised plate shown with the description reveals the name "N. A. Armstrong."
