Remember the character Harvey Dent in the 2008 movie The Dark Knight? He’s the guy who had half of his face was mangled after The Joker blew up the building in which Dent was being held captive. From one side his injuries were not noticeable, but the other side of his face told a different story. This damaged 2014 Corvette Stingray reminded us of The Dark Knight when we stumbled across it on eBay. The passenger side looks fine, but the driver’s side shows some battle scars.
The Laguna Blue Stingray on eBay is VIN 3,460 and sports the gray interior. It’s travelled just 2,552 miles since new. Options on this Stingray include automatic transmission, heated/cooled seats, HUD, and chrome wheels among others.
The seller states that they acquired the car from the original owner. They also say that the car does come with a clean title since insurance never got involved after the “incident”.
When viewed from the passenger’s side, the Stingray appears to be a normal, low-mile C7. Swing around to the driver’s side and that’s where things go downhill. This Corvette has sustained a punch in the left side of its nose taking out the left front fender, fascia, and numerous other bits.
The auction listing points out that the frame shows no indication of damage and that the cooling system is still in good shape. They also mention that the car will need a left headlight, left front wheel, driver, passenger and seat airbags as well as a host of miscellaneous small parts. We’ve certainly seen Stingrays in worse condition.
So if you’re looking for a good winter project this may be a good option for you. The noted damage doesn’t appear to be too bad and the car does still have a clean title. As we write this, the car already has 23 bids and is up over $41,000. If you must have it immediately there’s a $48,900 Buy-it-now option.
