I think I’ve mentioned my affinity for guns, whisky and Corvettes in a previous post and although I can’t really claim the “all American guy” trifecta with this story, Meatloaf would say “two out of three ain’t bad”.
Charlton Heston, actor extraordinaire and 2nd Amendment rights champion was also a Corvette owner. His 1999 Black Corvette Coupe is currently listed for sale on eBay as the current owner looks to cash in on the death of the movie icon. The Corvette is a mostly stock automatic with just 18,500 miles. The current owner claims the only changes were new LED halo taillights, C6 style chrome wheels and a Borla Stinger exhaust system. The original factory rims and taillights also come with the car.
If you’re contemplating the purchase of the Corvette previously owned by Moses himself, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got more documentation than just a pencil with bite marks. Luckily for you, this Corvette comes with the actual registration and insurance card with “Chuck” Heston’s name and Wilshire Blvd address.
The auction runs through April 17th and the current bid of $20,800 has yet to break the reserve. “Cold Dead Hands” jokes aside, with the provenance of celebrity, this Corvette would give bragging rights to any owner.
