    BRUNSWICK, Maine — The famous “entombed” Corvette that spent 27 years bricked into a vault inside a Bath Road building could sell for at least $175,000 in a Florida auction Saturday.

    The Corvette is one of more than 3,000 vehicles to “ride the red carpet” at the Mecum’s Kissimmee Auction at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Fla.

    The car has an automatic transmission, red interior and a “Blue Flame” 6-cylinder engine.

    Richard Sampson, a businessman who built a chain of 33 grocery stores, purchased the car new in 1954 and drove it until 1959. Then he took it to the construction site of a store in Brunswick — currently home to China Rose restaurant, 42 Bath Road — and had workers enclose it in a brick-and-mortar vault, according to a story by Kane Rogers in this month’s edition of Mecum Monthly, an auctioneer publication.
