If you grew up in the 1970s, you no doubt remember the custom Corvette station wagons that appeared in some of the magazines back in those days.
This eBay ad takes that modification in a different direction, though.
Silverado not cool enough for you? How about a 1972 Corvette pickup?
Yes, someone has actually turned this classic Corvette into a pickup truck that, as the seller points out, gives you “a place to store the t-tops.”
“Good start for a one of a kind project especially being a close range 4 speed Hurst manual,” the seller continues, “so if you’re looking for a cool rat rod, rod hot, or just a one of a kind classic that no one will have, look no further.”
This Corvette boasts of a “solid, rust-free” frame, according to the ad. All it needs is for a new owner to repair the windows that don’t go up and down anymore, replace the cracked windshield (a new one will be included), and overhaul the 350 motor under the hood now. Of course, why not take the plunge and drop in a big block to turn this car into “one amazing hot rod Corvette.”
By the way, you’d have plenty of room for a big motor since the AC and heater have already been removed to open up more space. The gas tank has also been moved so you fill up from the rear bumper now.
As for the paint, the owner says it’s a “good 10-footer” right now.
He admits the Corvette is “not a perfect car by any means but a nice driver or weekend car.”
If you’re interested, this Corvette could be yours for the Buy It Now price of $6,500, but the owner says he’s open to offers to be considered after he returns on Oct. 23 from a trip. Trades will also be considered but only for two-door cars like Opel GT, RX7, Camaro, or Mustang.
