You can look at this custom Corvette in two ways.
The owner of this self-described “one of a kind vehicle” is asking $23,500 for his 1989 Corvette convertible that’s been modded with a pretty slick 1967 Sting Ray retro body kit.
Up for sale in the Binghamton, N.Y., area, the car, which is said to have just 63,000 miles, looks very nice in the craigslist photos with its medium blue exterior and C4 tan leather interior.
The seller describes it as a “super clean” Corvette that “runs, drives, and sounds excellent” with a 5.7-liter Tuned Port engine that if the original produces 240 horsepower. The tires and brakes are described as “like new,” and the photos of the interior seem to live up to the “excellent condition” rating given by the seller.
If you don’t want to shell out big bucks for a C2 Corvette, this might be a good option for you. We don’t usually care for these C4-into-C2 transformations because the lines of the original Sting Ray are too stretched out, but at least looking at the photos, we like this car, especially with the black stinger hood (that tilts by the way), exhaust extensions out the rear, and later model wheels. About the only changes we’d make would be to add back the chrome bumpers, at least on the front.
If you’re considering a conversion like this, this would likely be the least expensive way to do it.
