Corvettes on Craiglist: This Viper Was Built on a C4 Corvette

If you can’t make up your mind whether to buy a Corvette or a Viper, then this might be the perfect car for you.

The owner of this C4 Corvette has done major body work and changed it into a 1996-2002 Viper lookalike. The owner doesn’t say which year Corvette it is, but based on the dash, it looks like a 1985-89 before the interior changed in 1990.

If you don’t mind having a car who apparently doesn’t know who his daddy is, you can snap up this beauty finished with a black exterior and silver racing stripes for just $10,999 in a Craigslist offering from Miami.

Apparently, the owner may have realized the hybrid Corviper was a mistake, since he admits it needs a tune-up after sitting for nearly a year. Who wouldn’t drive a real Viper for a whole year, after all?

The Corviper has a Chevy Tuned Port injection engine, which replaced the Cross-Fire engine that was offered in the debut 1984 models, so that leads us to believe that you’re more than likely buying a 1985-89 Corvette.

The owner says some original parts were used, including emblems, lights, mirrors, and wheels, and notes that the interior features racing seats, power windows, door poppers, and an Alpine detachable CD player, Kicker Woofers, and a Memphis Belle M Amp.

Since some folks are currently criticizing the C7 Corvette for looking like a Camaro, we’ll just say that this hybrid Corviper looks like a 1990s Firebird and leave it at that.
