Here’s a restomod concept that you don’t see every day – a 1967/1977 combo currently for sale on eBay.
In fact, the seller in Statesboro, Ga., says he tells people if a 1967 and a 1968 Corvette had sex, this is what the baby would look like.
“When you see this car coming at you, you know it’s something different,” he says in his eBay ad.
We’d have to agree. We actually like the way the front end looks in the photo taken from a low angle, it reminds us of a ’68 down low and a ’67 up high on the fenders.
So far, the bid is up to $5,400, far short of the “Buy It Now” price of $12,500 before the sale ends Friday.
While the seller claims all the hard work is done – “mating the two years together, stance, etc.” – he admits the finish on the edges and some seams still needs to be cleaned up.
As it sits, though, he believes it’s already driver quality, “and you could feel good driving it to your local car show.”
“But restored,” he believes, “this car is worth at least twice of what I am asking. It runs and drives great.”
Unlike many C2s, this C2/C3 hybrid does have air conditioning, though the aftermarket unit isn’t currently hooked up because the lines won’t let the hood close, “so maybe the bracket needs to be shortened.”
We have to give the creator of this car credit for thinking outside the box. Usually when someone tries to create a restomod with a C2 look, he will use a C5 or C6.
This is definitely a different way to approach such a project on a lower scale budget. What’s your opinion?
