The seller of this unique 1965 Corvette restomod convertible wants it to go to the “right person” who can complete it to its full potential.
“It sounds amazing,” he says in his eBay listing, “and draws a crowd the few times it has been driven.”
The major work seems to have already been done, including a 454 big block engine built by Texas Joe less than 100 miles ago, complete with cam, headers, side pipes, Quickfuel Carb, fuel pump, MSD ignition, coil, distributor, Champion radiator, and electric fan.
The very slick black paint and custom bodywork were done by Dirtybird Customs out of Arizona.
Other new parts include a Muncie 4-speed transmission, Hurst shifter and linkage, Wilwood brakes, seats, carpet, pulleys, and Flaming River steering column.
The seller has already invested four years and “tons of money” on the car but says now it is “almost complete” and “runs and drives so you can work on it and drive it.”
He says small things still need to be done, like bleeding the brakes, for one, and hooking up various items like the fuel sensor in the instrument cluster and a different distributor for the tach to work, for another.
Also needing to be installed are the front grill, parking brake hardware, door locks, vent windows adjusted, and some other items, he says.
Still, the eBay ad boasts that the new owner will be getting “a one of a kind type of car” that is a “unique investment” and won’t go down in value like a new car.
So far, bids have climbed to just $18,100, with time expiring on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 7:43 p.m.
