This next car brings so many more questions than answers. What am I looking at? How did we get here? When will this car be flipped for stupid money on eBay by MotoExotica? How have we not featured this car on DT before? How has CFlo not owned this car for a few years? Would K2 Mystery Car approve? How much is that doggy in the window? Who is KBZ and why does he wear a Mexican wrestler mask whenever he visits DT HQ? How does the Smurf population reproduce with only boy smurfs? Why can’t I have the time (and skillz) to build something like this? Find this 1992 Chevrolet Corvette Volvo 1800 here on eBay with starting bid of $29,500 reserve-not-met and $40,000 buy-it-now located in Portage, IN.
At first glance this beast appears to be a Volvo 1800 sporting some fancy late-model wheels and grounded to the ground with some coil overs…but wait…check that raked windshield…yup, this is a 1992 C4 Corvette that has been restyled to look like a 1960s Volvo 1800….because why not!
From the seller:
A complete 1992 Corvette and a complete 1967 Volvo 1800 were the starting point for this custom car. The body panels of the Corvette were modified and/or replaced with the Volvo 1800 body parts to create a vehicle that appears to be a modern looking Volvo 1800, but with all the amenities of a modern vehicle. This car is basically a Corvette that looks very much like a custom Volvo 1800 . It is titled and licensed as a 1992 Corvette.
This very unique car, which one might now logically call a custom Volvette 1800, was featured in the Volvo magazine Rolling (www.vcoa.org) in May/June and July/August 2008. It has all of the features, chassis, interior, luxury and fantastic drivability of a 1992 Corvette with the appearance of a customized Volvo 1800. All of the original Corvette features are 100% functional including heat/air conditioning, ventilation, power steering, power seats, power windows, stability ASR, etc. The Avon M600 tires are 255/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear and these are mounted on 9 1/2″ new Corvette wheels, The amount invested in this custom professionally built car far exceeds the buy it now price.
This Volvette is complete and fully operational in every respect. It is ready for many years of use and enjoyment. The Corvette engine, drive gear and chassis are all in excellent condition. This Volvette will always turn heads and attract a crowd, and will be a real hit at car shows and concourse competitions.
