Great news! We’ve found yet another Corvette treasure on Craigslist. If you missed your chance to score the yellow C4 with a fake motor in the back and the Decepticons thwarted your attempted purchase of the Transformers inspired C6 you’ve still got a chance to take home a thoroughly modded Corvette. Tap the magical Read More button below to behold this bright yellow 1979 Corvette sporting the nose from Pontiac Vibe.
The Albuquerque Craigslist brings this custom C3. According to the listing the car is a “One of a kind Corvette with a custom front end… A real attention getter!!!” We couldn’t agree more. We’re pretty sure no one has ever mated a Vibe and Corvette before. The seller also states that the car is powered by the base L48 engine which is bolted to an automatic transmission. It’s travelled 77,000 miles since new and listing says it runs and drives great. You will also receive a clear title with the purchase of your VibeVette.
Taking a look at the photos it appears that the modifications on the car have been done pretty well. Note that we always encourage you to inspect a car firsthand before buying it. Judging by the lights reflecting off the car, the bright yellow paint appears to be pretty smooth and in good condition. The 4 black wheels help give the car a somewhat menacing look.
The asking price for this later C3 is $22,350. When you factor in how much coin custom body work and paint alone can cost, that price tag might not be too far out of line. We’d still like to take a peek under the hood and inside cabin. We’re a big fan of custom Corvette and we’ve certainly seen worse, but we can’t help thinking of this as the automotive equivalent Lady Gaga’s nose on Sofia Vergara’s body.
