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!
You see, it’s part monster truck, part sports car.
It’s a 1968 Corvette body sitting on top of a 1970s Blazer frame and is currently up for grabs on eBay for the “Buy It Now” price of just $10,000.
The “monster Corvette” features a 427 engine and TH 350 transmission and has a transfer case for 4×4. It’s also got a new cam, heads rebuilt with valve seat grinding, springs, lifters, and new mechanical fuel pump,
Unfortunately, the gas pedal is broken off at the floor, and the four-barrel Edelbrock carburetor needs rebuilding. The front tires went flat after a few weeks and are damaged from sitting that way too long.
But did we mention the Corvette has a new Accel distributor, wires, and plugs, though?
Uh, the radio and center dash are pulled out – but all the parts are there, the seller says optimistically. He just pulled it out to wire in the new ignition.
By the way, one of the rear tires is locked up from sitting. But on a positive note, the seller does have a clear title!
One last thing you might want to know: this Corvette will only run off starting fluid or gas poured directly into the carburetor – since the carb needs rebuilding after all, remember?
Sure, it has some problems and needs a little work, but think what a one-of-a-kind Corvette you’d have when you got through fixing it up with a few weekend projects!
