Corvettes on eBay: The Force is With This Star Wars Themed 1974 Corvette

Back in 1977, a young filmmaker named George Lucas changed pop culture forever with the release of the first Star Wars movie. That film not only ushered in cool special effects, it set the standard (in the immortal words of Spaceball’s Mel Brooks) for movie merchandising and soon Star Wars branded toys and accessories were everywhere.

Obviously, the first Star Wars movie made an impact on the former owner and creator of this special 1974 Corvette which showcases many scenes from the movie with hand airbrushed murals painted on every body panel.

With the next installment of the movie franchise due in December 2015, it’s timely that this Star Wars branded Corvette Stingray is now for sale on eBay.
