The "Entombed Corvette"

This 1954 Chevrolet Corvette roadster is the famous "Entombed Corvette" removed from a brick vault inside a Brunswick, Maine grocery store once owned by local businessman Richard Sampson. A successful and somewhat eccentric man who built a chain of 33 grocery stores, ran for governor and served as a Senator from Maine, Sampson bought the car new in 1954 and drove it until 1959, when he took it to the construction site of a new store in Brunswick and had workmen enclose it in a brick-and-mortar vault. "The Oldest, Lowest-Mile Unrestored Corvette in the World", the  Entombed Corvette will cross the block at 4:50 PM at the Mecum Kissimmee Auction, Saturday, January 26, 2013. Read all about it!
