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.

Corvettes on eBay: Wild 1970 Corvette with Psychedelic Paint Job


Back in the day, a lot of car magazines featured C3 Corvettes painted wildly.

The Stingray just seemed to be one of those cars that was perfect for painting that way. We remember one in particular painted red, white and blue with white stars on it.

Now you can take another trip back to the Psychedelic ’70s in this 1971 Corvette Coupe.

Corvettes on eBay:  Untitled 1996 Corvette Grand Sport with 480 Miles


When it comes to Corvette icons, one of the most historic names has been Grand Sport.

After a long hiatus after the original five 1963 Grand Sports were secretly produced by Zora and crew, the name lay in rest until the end of the C4 generation when Chevy revived it for one year in 1996. Then with the C6, Chevy brought it back from 2010 to 2013, turning the Grand Sport into sort of a “Z06 Lite” and proving that the name still carried clout as that version dominated sales of the Corvette during those four years.

Most C4 Corvettes don’t get much respect in the market these days, but for fans of that generation, the Grand Sport (at least the convertible version) is probably the best investment you can make right now – perhaps better than the legendary ZR-1.

And right now on eBay, you can buy what looks to be a great example of a Grand Sport Coupe that is essentially a brand new Corvette with just 479 miles showing on the odometer.

With just 300 of the first-year Corvettes produced back in 1953, it’s always a big deal in these modern times when one goes up for sale.

We have written about a couple of 1953 Corvettes seeking new owners in the past few months, and there was recently a listing was added on eBay for a first year Corvette with the VIN sequence number of #071.

Unfortunately, in the time that we saw the ad for the 1953 Corvette on Friday to this morning when we are ready to publish our article, the auction was ended early.

Corvettes on eBay: 1968 Monster Corvette 4x4


A couple of years ago, a buddy of mine sold his 1997 Corvette.

Well, the new owner decided he really wanted a pickup instead of a ‘Vette so he wound up taking a loss a few weeks later and sold it to me to get a truck.

Too bad this unusual creation wasn’t available in 2012. It might have been just the ticket for that unhappy Corvette owner!

The car had been up for sale on eBay, but a check of the listing on June 4th showed that it had been removed because it was no longer available. Prior to the auction ending we saw the bidding was closing in on $40,000. A quick phone call confirmed the sale, but the spokesman declined to reveal the final selling price.
