2013 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

In 2014 Chevrolet introduced the C7 generation of their world dominating Corvette, and it was faster, better looking, and better quality than the car it replaced.  The previous generation C6 isn't a bad car by any yardstick, but it got walloped hard by the depreciation hammer when the new one appeared on the street, so what was $60k in 2013 is now half priced three years later.  Find this 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport offered for $30,000 in Aitkin, MN via craigslist. This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!

There are a few reasons that this Vette is a bit below the rest of the market, first it was salvaged from a tree falling on it sometime in the past, and then it is a ghastly shade of white, and finally it has an automatic gearbox.  But, for about what you'd spend on a well optioned new Ford Focus RS, this thing has a 430 horsepower LS3 V8 and a bunch of speed parts borrowed from the Z06.  Not bad.

See a better deal on a car in the wrong color?


  1. If I'm doing a C6 I'll go back a couple years earlier and get an '07+ Z06.

  2. Does it come with a matching cooler, folding chair, and straw hat?
    I almost died of old age watching the Corvettes in my towns 4th of July parade.
