In 1963 Chevy built just five Grand Sports Corvette examples and, while all five are currently spoken for (and valued in the millions), Ohio-based automotive shop Mongoose Motorsports offers the next best thing with GM-licensed replicas. So, when the 2010 Fast Five movie production was in need of a custom, high-performance GS Corvette replica, they reached out to Mongoose.
This spare-no-expense movie car commission would ultimately yield the modified 1963 Corvette famously featured in the train heist scene of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker’s fifth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise. A decade after the film’s debut, this very car is now slated to cross the online auction block from April 14 through the 21st via Illinois’ Volo Auto Sales. Titled as a 1966 Corvette, this specimen sports a 380hp GM performance crate 350 engine mated to an automatic transmission and wrapped in a full custom tubular chassis paired with C4 suspension. Of the dozen units produced for the film, only three would survive, making this pristine example particularly noteworthy. While Volo doesn’t cite a valuation figure, this movie car is expected to go well into six-figure territory. For more info, you can check out the car’s sale page linked below.
