If you’ve ever wondered what the Midas touch would look like if applied to a C7 Corvette, look no further than this 2014 Corvette Stingray.
Besides its liberal dose of the golden touch, this one also has the honor of being the lowest priced C7 currently on the Web (that’s not been wrecked) – at the Buy It Now price of just $36,995.
And it’s even a 3LT.
However, a look at the photos – plus the odometer – will show why this one is priced so low.
The Lime Rock Green Stingray has been coated with gold (paint, we presume) on just about every surface that used to be black – places like the bottom of the rear bumper, the hood vents, the front grill, the custom wheels, the fender vents, etc., etc.
And that’s just the exterior. The interior has more of the gold dipping, too.
“This one turns heads EVERYWHERE!” the listing on eBay says in what might be the understatement of the year.
While some of you might not like the custom gold touches applied liberally to this C7, the listing notes that “the car still runs down the road ok and there does not appear to be any major issues.”
We noticed some wear and tear in the interior, particularly the plastic sides of the seats, and the seller, in a round of transparency, admits that the 22-inch wheels scrub a little when turning, the radio/backup camera flickers on and off sometimes not working at all, the front grille has a crack in it, and some of the wheels have curb rash.
We do have to compliment the owner on his apparent excitement about driving his one-of-a-kind Corvette, which has definitely not been a trailer queen in its short life as it has already covered a whopping 79,369 miles since new.
Kudos to someone who wants to use his Stingray for the purpose Tadge & Co. intended all along: driving!
“The car does show typical wear for the age and miles but overall the body and interior are in good condition,” the ad concludes.
All in all, though, this is definitely the cheapest way we’ve seen yet to get into a C7 without bankrupting the bank – while at the same time being able to boast of driving the most unusual Stingray around.
