It’s baaaaaack! In case you missed the opportunity to buy this Corvette when it was being offered at auction by Insurance Auto Auctions, as we reported on March 10, 2014, it’s now back on the market.
The car has shown up in a Craigslist ad in San Antonio, TX, looking a little cleaner, but still in the wrecked condition it was in a couple of months ago. The current owner is asking $24,500. Judging from the appearance, all the new owner did was clean the exterior and freshen up the tire dressing.
It will take a lot more than a little elbow grease to return this car to life. All the exterior panels are missing on the driver’s side, as are the front and rear bumper covers. In our previous report, we noted that the auction site description indicated that the car wouldn’t start; that the loss was due to a collision; and the primary damage was on the left side with secondary damage “All Over”. The auction’s description is no longer available on their website.
The C7 has four airbags and the only one to deploy in this car was the driver’s seat side airbag. The steering wheel airbag and the two on the passenger side are still intact. That’s all we really know about the accident, so we’ll leave further speculation up to you.
The Cyber Gray C7 has a manual transmission, the Z51 performance package, heated seats and a 3LT Kalahari interior. The ad says that there is “no evidence of frame or inner structure damage.” However, if you look carefully at the photos of the opposite sides of the car in our previous post and in the current ad, the rear wheel on the driver’s side seems to have a couple of degrees of positive camber that is not shared by the rear wheel on the other side. For good handling, positive camber is not a good thing.
The ad also says that the current owner has “all the parts that isn’t [sic] on the car.” We’re not sure if that means the wrecked parts that came off the car, or other parts to replace them. We sent an email to the ad response address with our questions, but, as of press time, we have not received a response.
The car is obviously in bad shape, but for someone with a little creativity, and lots of skill, even if it can’t be put back in stock condition, it, or parts of it, could be made into something unique and special.
If you have any questions, please contact the seller. Good luck!
