Looks like the marketplace on Facebook is becoming the new Craigslist as the go-to site for selling wacky-looking Corvette projects. After all, where else would you expect to find “gems” like this 1984 Corvette rat rod!
This Corvette convertible has a C4 Grand Sport blue exterior with white body stripe, but on the front has been grafted a custom 1946 Chevy front end with a wide verticle grille and large round fenders that cover the front wheels. A single headlight is positioned on each side of the car to light the way. Given that the C4 has a clamshell hood, I have no idea how they get into the engine compartment with the ’46 Chevy front end attached.
The rear fascia has been updated with later C4 rear end that features the rectangular taillights and embossed Corvette name in the center. There are no photos of the interior other than an early C4 seat’s headrest that appears in one of the three photos provided.
The Corvette’s exterior finish was also given the rat-rod treatment, but making a plastic-bodied Corvette look like it’s rusting just doesn’t really work here. I think most will be thinking that someone killed a ’96 Grand Sport to make this??
The Corvette rat rod is located in Anniston, AL and is offered on the Facebook marketplace for $3,500. We note that the seller doesn’t have a title for the car so have fun with that. Here is the description and the phone number for the seller if interested:
