There’s showmanship, and then there’s the guy trying to sell this red on red 2014 Corvette Z51 3LT on Craigslist.
From the first glance at his ad, you can tell this guy has the right stuff when it comes to writing ad copy and using Photoshop to make some wild-looking photos of his Stingray, complete with bald eagles on the mirrors and huge flames roaring behind the car, not to mention beautiful girls surrounding YOU sitting in the driver’s seat.
We’ve already told you a few days ago about the great deals out there on C7s, and this one is no exception.
This Z51 coupe – or “All American chariot of the free world,” as the seller puts it – stickered for $69,000 just three years ago and has covered only 31,000 miles since.
“This is my 2nd Stingray and 5th corvette that has served primarily as my road trip and show car, and is in absolutely perfect condition inside and out,” the seller claims. “The red paint and red leather interior and leather-wrapped dash and console show no signs of wear, as I have it detailed every 5 washes.”
Even better, he says he just took it in for the major 30,000 mile service and oil change, and “everything is perfect,” including tires, brakes, engine, transmission, and drivetrain.
As he says: “Look, if you are the type of person that can be talked into having one more drink at midnight when you have a very important presentation or interview early the next morning, then the Stingray is not for you. One second you’re cruising the speed limit on the 202 late to work, and next thing you know you’re doing 190 in the carpool lane and you still haven’t shifted out of 5th gear.”
Unfortunately, the bald eagles and beautiful girls are not included in the sale, he says, but he promises “one lap down Mill Avenue in this sucker and you’ll have plenty of your own.”
“I will however throw in a case of Coors Light, a large American flag, and a firm handshake when you buy it,” he concludes.
