Miller was shocked when his friend said he had "three or four cars" he wanted to restore.
"I didn't know he was a car guy."
Being a longtime Corvette owner and collector, Miller wanted to see the 1967 convertible in his friend's barn. He was also interested to know if it was for sale.
"I said I want to see it because my nephew was looking for one. So, I go down and take a look. I walk in the door (of the barn) and see the body sitting there. He didn't know what he had."
The '67 turned out to be a '69; he had both tops and it was originally a four-speed car. Somebody "down the road" had blown up the 427, but nobody knows what happened to it.
"If I was a lot younger and had a place to work on the '69, I'd redo that car. I hate to see cars disappear into the ground," Miller said.

His friend wanted $10,000, which Dale figured was too much.
There must be a ton of old Corvettes that fall into this price slot. Not every barn find is a gold nugget, but this car still represents value for somebody that wants to own the car long term and not flip it.
"You're going to have 30 to 40 in it. This '69 is the type of find that is good deal for somebody that will work on the car in their garage. If you turn it over to a pro shop, you'll have 60 in it," Miller said.
Miller presented the barn find to a number of Corvette collectors. They were looking for a car that they could "turn for a few bucks." But right now, they could not get more out of the car than they would put in it.
"You could probably go find a date-coded 427 block for the engine," Miller said.
