An exceptionally rare, barely driven 1953 Chevy Corvette is up for sale after being hidden away in a garage for close to 40 years. 

The immaculate ´Vette — which is asking $249,800 through Classic Promenade, a dealership in Arizona — shows just 5,800 miles on the odometer and is one of only 300 Corvettes built in 1953, the model´s first production year. 

Not only is the car rare and significant, it also has quite the backstory, according to its selling dealer. A 20-year-old Lyle Hill bought the car in 1962, drove it for a few years, and then tucked it away in storage for the better part of the next four decades, which helps explain how the nearly 70-year-old car boasts such astonishingly low mileage.
