As I sit here in our Detroit Bureau HQ, I find myself with a plethora of time on my hands for the next 4-6 weeks after my most recent knee surgery. This also means, in addition to physical therapy, I’ll be spending an unhealthy amount of time staring at the internet looking at Corvettes for sale which I have no business buying.
Today’s example comes from Facebook Marketplace in the form of a lifted 1976 4×4 Corvette. If you’ve ever been left behind when your buddies hit the trails because you don’t own an off-road vehicle, this C3 will ensure that that unfortunate fate doesn’t befall you again.
The body is finished in 1976’s most popular hue, Classic white. The ad itself is pretty succinct, but we do get the basic details. Under the hood, you’ll find a 400 Ford engine backed by a C6 transmission. Power gets to the 14-26 tires via a 12in drop Tombstone transfer case and a 4-link suspension. Jumbo coil-overs reside on all four corners and support 2.5-ton axles. Don’t forget the classy dancing ladies adorning the wheels. The seller does state that the vehicle could use some additional frame boxing and waterproofing.
The asking price for this beast is $8,500 or best offer plus the seller will entertain trades for a side-by-side or a dune buggy. Looking at the photos, I’d have to admit, this thing looks like it would be a riot to drive. If you’re looking for more info on this C3, head on over to Facebook Marketplace.
