It would appear that this 1974 Chevrolet C10 Blazer is just another slammed hunk of junk. But according to the owner of the “Army Vette”, this Frankenstein monster of American muscle required “months of work” and a substantial amount of coin to fuse the shell of a camo-painted Blazer C10 onto the frame of a Corvette. The lengthy write-up can be found on this eBay page.
Due to the skeletal components, it’s actually registered as a 2000 Corvette C5, and features the same refinements that the old Blazer wouldn’t otherwise have such as cruise control and anti-lock brakes. And of course, there’s the power of the LS1 V8 under the hood. Because of the added weight, the owner went ahead and fortified the ride with QA1 coil-over springs, keeping the heavy body lifted enough so that it doesn’t scrape the high-performance rubber wrapping 20-inch SSR wheels underneath. A roll cage was also welded in for the sake of structural integrity.
With the bidding finalized, the Army Vette sold for $21,500. Is that a bargain price for a major conversation piece? Or is it overspending on an over-the-top money pit? We’ll leave it for you to decide in the comments below.
