A historic collection of 36 classic Corvettes saved from dilapidation after being hidden underground in a Manhattan garage for decades will soon be given away in a nationwide sweepstakes.
Corvette Heroes is hosting The Lost Corvettes sweepstakes that will be giving away the cars that it touts as the “greatest barn find in automotive history.”
The Corvette collection has an unusual backstory: this isn’t the first time all 36 of the Corvettes have been given away together. They were originally a part of a 1989 giveaway that landed the cars in the hands of a Long Island man who then passed the cars along to artist Peter Max. Max, however, left the Corvette collection untouched in multiple Manhattan garages for decades before the current team acquired the fleet and decided to host a new giveaway.
The sweepstakes collection includes a Corvette from every production year
