Corvettes on Craigslist: 1974 Corvette with a VW Diesel Engine

Where do 1970s Corvettes go to die?

Apparently New London, Connecticut, if this Craigslist ad is any indication.

The owner describes it as a “one of a kind project car.”

We’d be inclined to believe him in that summation.

If you think the 2014 Stingray is a fuel-efficient monster, then take a look at this 1974 Stingray that has been sliced, diced, chopped, and mutilated with a 2002 VW diesel engine that’s visible through a hole cut in the hood and a Toyota truck 5-speed transmission, all put together with an Acme Adapters adapter plate.

This CorVWette doesn’t know whether to speak English, German, or Japanese!

If you doubt that the operation was a success, the owner claims the CorVWette has been a “blast to drive” during the past three years when he’s used it as a daily driver. It even delivers an incredible 55+ miles per gallon, he claims.

Best of all, if you happen to like Corvettes (or CorVWettes) that need a paint job, especially on the front bumper, and feature an interior that’s best described as “needs a little work,” then this is your lucky day.

The owner says it cost him a whopping $12,000 to put it all together, but he’s willing to take $6,000 today…or best offer. Oh, we forgot to say that the CorVWette has a “custom” cup holder and even got new tires last fall – so there are two expenses you won’t have to worry about!

Somehow, we have to think the owner might have been better off taking his $12,000 and buying a very nice late C3 Corvette that didn’t need any work.
