Corvettes on Craigslist: 1977 Greenwood GT Widebody Corvette


John and Burt Greenwood are quite the legend in Corvette circles.

In the 1960s and 1970s, they made a name for themselves for their patriotically designed red, white and blue Corvettes.

John passed away in 2015 but not before leaving behind a stellar career that included several wins in the Sebring endurance race, as well as 32 Corvette-based Greenwood GTs for the street, including a 1977 recently listed for sale on craigslist for $28,000 or best offer. (Editor’s Note: The ad was deleted within the last day.)

The 32 cars were built from 1975 to 1977 and featured a widebody design reminiscent of Greenwood’s pole-winning 1975 Daytona entry.

This one has the desirable L82 engine with 4-speed transmission, apparently with just 46,000 miles on the odometer, but we’re not too sure about any other options (that could have included suspension and steering upgrades from Greenwood in those days) since the seller is vague in his listing. We’re also not too sure about the apparent update with the green paint and of course the unusual stainless steel Kamm rear end in place of the usual urethane bumper.

Still, this 1977 has one overwhelming thing on its side – scarcity; we’ll leave it to you if that is a good thing.

“This is a super rare piece of Corvette history,” the seller claims,”and I have not seen a genuine Greenwood like this for sale in many years.”

Whether that rarity translates into $28,000 for a ’77 ‘Vette remains to be seen, huh?
