Neil Armstrong's former 1967 Corvette hits eBay

There's so much Americana in this auction it's amazing. Back in the 60s America was enamored with spaceflight and astronauts were the massive national heroes that they should be. Astronauts got all the chicks and had the sweetest cars, just like this 1967 Chevrolet Corvette that was once owned by Neil Armstrong.

Armstrong was the first man to ever walk on the moon. Armstrong's Corvette is a manual transmission, 427 engine Corvette with power windows, and air conditioning. In the 60s, Armstrong sold the car to a NASA employee that and drove it until 1981 before selling it. The car is now on eBay for anyone to purchase, and it looks like it's in need of restoration. As of now the car is bid up to $120,427 with several days to go in the reserve still hasn't been met.
