BOSTON (CBS) – The Corvette that spent years covered in dust will now have to endure desert sand.

Earlier this year, a Plymouth collector bought a 1978 Corvette which only had 13 miles on it!

In 1978, a man in Ohio bought the 25th anniversary limited edition Corvette, stuck it in his barn and then walked away. The car stayed that way for 33 years.

The man needed cash and sold it to ‘Corvette Mike’ Milian of Plymouth.

Now, its been sold to a Sheik from Abu Dhabi for $50,000.

The dust was not included, so before shipping the Corvette overseas, it got its long awaited bath.
