What’s that old saying? Ah, yes. If you dream it, you can build it. Endless opportunities await in the world. Some are dreamt up, while some come from nightmares.
It’s up to you to decide where this 1979 Dunham Coach Caballista Corvette hails from, but there’s no denying it’s… different.
This machine is for sale on Craigslist as you read this and it possesses quite a history. So the story goes, according to Car and Driver, Les Dunham made a business out of customizing cars in a way the typical dealer couldn’t in the 1970s. In fact, Dunham was tapped to create the Corvorado for the James Bond film Live and Let Die. That car also melded Corvette and Cadillac cues. But that wasn’t the end for Dunham.
He then went on to create what you see here, the Caballista Corvette. A C3 Corvette was used as the basis and then was outfitted with body parts, pieces and cues from Cadillacs of the era. Between 1977 and 1982, Dunham reportedly only built 50 of these vehicles, meaning it is actually a rarity.
And it won’t break the bank either. It’s asking price is $22,500. And instead of basic transportation, you could have this. You know this would be cooler than a Chevrolet Cruze.
