Corvettes on Craigslist: 1958 Corvette Roadster is a Backyard Basket Case


Yes, folks, there really is a 1958 Corvette roadster in this photo.

If you look hard enough.

The owner just listed the Corvette for sale on the Nashville Craigslist (although “Tampa” is listed next to it and the surrounding vegetation and seller’s contact numbers suggest that it’s a Florida car).

This is one vintage ‘Vette that might have the new owner really singing the blues by the time he gets through restoring it.

We don’t know much about the car, based on the ad, but you can tell from the photo that this ’58 definitely needs a “complete restoration,” as the seller puts it delicately.

Further “encouraging” tidbits of information include the fact that it doesn’t come with a top, engine or transmission. Oh, and no title or tag. And did we mention the fact that the frame is said to be rusty? One “plus” is that the seller says he DOES have the passenger side door, though.

But hey, if you’re looking for a project car that will test your restoration skills, look no further. And, if you happen to have a Harley, ATV, side by side, boat, or some other fun toy, the seller says he might be willing to trade with you.

Would you pay the asking price of $8,700 or move on to another project?
