25k: Cheapest C2 Corvette Ever: 1965 Chevy Corvette

 The C2 Corvette is one of the most desireable of Corvettes – it is prized for its clean/elegant styling, powerful V8 engines and generally looks like a million bucks even un-restored.  We featured an elusive Value-Vette a few weeks back that sold for bargain price of $33k and were astounded to see a C2 offered on craiglist for much…MUCH less.  Find this 1965 Chevy Covette for sale in Dayton, OH for $23,500 via craigslist.

Looks like a typical Vette from this photo – sure, it’s seen some fiberglass work in the form of a lip spoiler in the rear and some fender flares, but they seem to be well executed and the paint doesn’t look bad.

Inside it’s not pretty; there is an automatic shifter were the 4-spd shifter originally lived and for some reason the person who swapped out the manual left the clutch pedal in place.  Despite that, at this point we’re still not sure why this is so cheap…

It’s not a numbers matching setup anymore – this is a 350 cubic inch crate motor that the seller says is from “elderbroc” likely an ancient ancestor of famed aftermarket parts retailer Edelbrock. Still no reason to make this Vette this cheap…

 AAaaaaaggg…my eyes!  It cannot be unseen.  The horror.  Some butcher grafted what looks like the front of a Pontiac GTO or mid-80s Chrysler K-Car on the nose clip of the C2 Vette. For once…words escape me…
