This next car had me do a double take. And then check to see if it was a scam. How is it possible that a custom car built by legendary George Barris could possibly sell for less than a new Honda Civic? Maybe a really crusty Barris custom that needs total restoration built for his 2nd cousin…but no…this is in amazing shape and was built for John Belushi. I could not find a photo of the famous SNL founding cast member with this car…but there has to be one out there. Find this 1975 Chevrolet Corvette offered for $24,999 in Bellingham, WA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
From the seller:
cylinders: 8 cylinders
odometer rolled over
paint color: custom
title status: clean
YES, this in fact a 1975 Custom Corvette built by the Legendary George Barris for John Belushi!!!!! Was in John Fosters collecion since 1995. John Foster passed and car was sold at his estate sale. This is a 1 off custom. 350 small block, auto trans, PS, nice paint, nice interior, T-Tops. Just cool as heck. I am looking to trade up or down as long as it’s not a project. Please no boats, motorcycles (I am to old) Something that spins heads like this Corvette. Let me know if interested in a trade and what it is. Mustang, Nova, El Camino, CJ Jeep, Challenger, Hot Rod, Chevelle, Rambler, Classic older pick up, Pontiac, just some ideas. Car isn’t perfect but very dependable and priced I believe under true value today. (yet alone 10 more years from now, who knows).You can call me or reply by craiglist.
OTHER George Barris known customs include the “BAT MOBILE”, Bill Car’s legendary 55 Chev “AZTEC, the “BARRISTER, the “KOACH” and their “DRAG-U-LA”, Barris’s 1975 “SNAKE PIT”, Elvis Presley’s custom “STUTZ” and the “JOKER MOBILE”.
