Back in the 1970′s John Greenwood teamed up with Eckler’s Corvette parts to produce a run of wide body Corvettes. The entire kit could be purchased through the Eckler’s mail order catalog. Owners could choose several options including different width fenders, unique rear clips in addition to Sportwagon, Panelwagon, and hatch back rear end treatments. If you failed to order one these of kits back in the day, you’ve another chance at it with this Eckler’s Can-Am wide body we stumbled across on eBay.

We’ve all heard about the used car that was only driven on Sundays by a little old lady.
Well, here’s a 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe that apparently really was driven by an older lady throughout its history before it was parked in a barn in 1973 and left there for the next 41 years.
The barn find was listed on eBay and reached $45,544 before the bidding ended early today.

If you’re looking for originality, uniqueness, and rarity, then this 1967 Corvette COPO convertible might be for you.
In case you’re not familiar with COPO, it stands for Central Office Production Order. Basically, it allowed Chevrolet top dogs and a few dealers to order new vehicles with special features not usually found on the ordinary production vehicles.
This particular Corvette is one of only five known to be painted with Silver Pearl exterior paint and a red interior, a combo not available to ordinary folks.
When you’ve got one of only 116 1969 L88s ever made, you’ve obviously got a prize Corvette.
Add in an impressive frame-off restoration, mix in a very interesting racing heritage, and you’ve got the makings for one very, very desirable Stingray.
Just how desirable?
How about a Corvette that fetches $680,000 at the recent Mecum auction in Dallas?
One of the great things about the Corvette community is its appreciable tolerance of divergent viewpoints. Those who think the ultimate Corvette is a pristine Top Flight® award winner get along, at least for the most part, with those who think that a 1,000 horsepower in their modified Corvette is almost enough. If we accept this premise, then there must be Corvette fan somewhere who is also a Transformers aficionado and would love to have a modern, say a 2006, Corvette coupe that has been customized to pay homage to Autobot Sideswipe from the film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
You apparently just missed out on your chance to own the first Corvette Stingray ever to produce 1,000whp – at what looked to be a bargain price.
Vengeance Racing – saying it needed to make room for a new project – had been offering a 2014 Corvette Stingray for sale on eBay that featured more than $45,000 worth of modifications. The bidding reached almost $72,000, without meeting reserve, before the auction apparently came to an end on Sept. 1. We’re assuming the car sold for an unknown price because the listing says the bidding has ended and the car is no longer available.
