Loony Labor Day: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette

I bet you thought we'd forgotten about Loony Labor Day.  (whoa...today is Labor Day...where did the summer go?).  Anyway, if you are new to the lunacy around here, let me introduce you to  DT's annual end of summer tradition of featuring the craziest cars for sale on the web.  Find this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette here on eBay offered for $8,500 buy-it-now or make-offer located in Annandale, MN.



 Wow...a 1963 Corvette split window for $8500 -- what kind of crazy time machine is this...oh...not a crazy time machine...just a crazy machine.  A crazy machine that'll drain your wallet faster than you can say AAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

    1. We need some kind of upvote system so I can give a thumbs up when a comment such as this one makes me laugh out loud. The accumulation of metal pieces offered for sale here hurts to lay eyes upon.

    2. Only $30 per pound for metal and trash.

  2. My initial thought was that it might be worth it for the VIN tags and rear window frame for someone to convert their non split window to a more valuable 1963, however, "New York Issued VIN" seems to negate any such value. Loony indeed

  3. He had better clearcoat that vintage patina quick before losing $8499 value.

  4. Seller kindly deflated the rears so you get an idea of how much torque that three-two-seven churns out the moment he drops the clutch as the Christmas tree lights up at the drag strip.

  5. What a beaut! Little Armor all on the wheels, good coat of carnuba, little duct tape here and there...maybe a can of liquid engine rebuild...

    Voila!
