Here’s a Corvette on eBay that sounds like it deserves to be restored to its former glory of the 1970s.
The seller says this heavily customized 1974 Corvette has been saved from two garage fires, the crusher, and many other obstacles over the past 32 years.
It would be a shame to see it wasted.
At one time, it was apparently a very nice Corvette with a Greenwood Ecklers wide body kit, complete with a 350 engine, 4-speed transmission, air conditioning, and power windows.
The seller bought the car from the original owner, who pointed out that it won People’s Choice awards many times in its heyday.
The inspection sticker on the windshield shows it was apparently last checked out in New Hampshire way back in 1984.
The seller claims the modifications to the body were done correctly, with no splits , tears, or bonding issues, though he does point out some obvious flaws from sitting for 30-plus years.
For example, the frame is facing repair or replacement, and the left rear caliper and the engine are both frozen. Likewise, the driver’s door doesn’t open, meaning you have to climb in through the passenger door.
You can buy the car now for $6,000, though the bidding war hasn’t exactly heated up.
Whoever buys the Corvette at full price will also get a 1974 Corvette coupe rolling automatic frame with removable cross member – “a great replacement item and starting point for this project,” the seller claims.
He maintains it’s a “very complete” Corvette that even includes keys and CB radio.
