You gotta love a homebrew custom car. Even if it isn’t your idea of a perfect ride, the hard work and ingenuity that goes into creating something utterly unique is still worth appreciating. Such is the case with this bizarre C3-generation Chevy Corvette limo, which, as it just so happens, is currently listed for sale.
Recently posted to Facebook marketplace, this Chevy Corvette limo hails from the late ‘70s, and was converted to its current stretched-out, four-door form in 1990. Motivation is sourced from a small-block V8, which connects to the drive wheels by way of an automatic transmission.
Outside, this C3 Corvette limo commands attention thanks to its ludicrously long overall length, an aesthetic that’s enhanced by an outrageously aggressive IMSA GT-style body kit swimming in vents, wings, flares, and extra curves. The wheel arches are massively flared, and the whole thing is slathered in white paint.
The interior matches the exterior with white upholstery throughout, while passengers on the rear bench seat are entertained by what appears to be an ancient RCA television set.
According to the listing, this C3 Corvette limo sports just 1,600 miles on the current motor, and still drives great. The odometer in the dash reads 26,769 miles. The wheels are wrapped in new tires, and although it’s a bit rough around the edges, a thorough clean-up could do this thing wonders.
The seller states that after 20 years of ownership, the current owner can no longer drive, and thus, must part with this unique and wild-looking creation. The car is listed with an asking price of $12,900 OBO, and is located in Gardnerville, Nevada.
Indeed, this C3 Corvette limo isn’t your typical classic car. Finding the right home won’t be easy, as it takes a special sort of buyer to want something like this. Nevertheless, we have to give it to the original owner for having the guts to build the thing in the first place.
