ONE OFF in the WORLD! - 'THE DARK LORD' (A.K.A. 'Baby') is now FOR SALE - $55,000 ROCK BOTTOM!

Fully Australian complianced & converted to RIGHT HAND DRIVE, using a Lexus steering column and a highly modified Ford rack-and-pinion setup that gives three turns lock-to-lock.

ONE-OFF FULLY CUSTOM 1980 C3 Corvette.
This IS A BRAND NEW CAR & Drives like one also.

Ground up resto in Australia
NO KITS used - Everything (Dash, spoiler etc) were handmade one-off's.
EVERYTHING was replaced with NEW and custom parts.

Less than 10,000km (6200 Miles) since full rebuild!!!
Stroked 383 V8 + 4 Speed TH700R Auto.
Currently on QLD Club Rego.

The car's Purple colour results from the C3's unique tint formulation. The formula incorporates a black-and-silver base that is sprayed with a translucent violet hue before being staged with light-dependent ghost flames and, finally, treated to 15 coats of clear.

This is NOT an invitation to a car show - My time is valuable to me, so PLEASE UNDERSTAND - I will NOT be available to stand around for hours with each looker.


I am happy to answer any questions you have by email or phone call but will NOT reply to ANY SMS questions due to scammers.

Please read VETTE article below before asking questions about it's construction, as they may be there! http://www.superchevy.com/features/vemp-0710-1980-chevrolet-corvette/

No pics in the thread above ;) just links to SuperChevy pics and a 5hitty youtube vid.

GLWS, it's a very niche market you're advertising to :(

Ever hear that saying, "a face only a mother could love".

OH; I can see the photos very well above, but thanks to StephenSLR; Wonder what I did wrong?

SO - can you ALL see them, NOW?

As for the rest - Yes, niche market, which is WHY I joined this forum, and if you don't like Corvettes, simply move on...

Stephen; I doubt some people would know what to DO with the power of some of the vettes..Anyway guys - THIS is my for sale ad, so can we leave it as this?

It's NOT a discussion about which car is beefier or gay...:rolleyes:
