An eBay seller in Merritt Island, Florida offers a historic deal for Corvette collector. The seller claims that NEIL ARMSTRONG’S 1967 CORVETTE hasn’t been driven since 1981. The engine is running, but the car has only been driven short distances. The car’s odometer stopped working since 1970s. Here’s the seller explanation for its history and other historic details:

This Corvette was delivered to Mr. Neil Armstrong the first man on the moon, on December 15, 1966 from Jim Rathman Chevrolet in Melbourne Florida under a program initiated by Mr. Rathman to provide our astronauts with a Corvette. They would keep the Corvette for a year and then turn it in and get a new one. This Corvette was bought by a NASA employee when Mr. Armstrong turned it in and was retained by the owner until I purchased the Corvette from him in February of 2012. The Corvette had been in a climate controlled environment and not driven since Sept. of 1981.
