Auction Block: 1999 Chevrolet Corvette Dune Buggy

May 5, 2020

Especially amongst inexperienced wrench monkeys, there are a lot of custom car projects that — by all rights — shouldn’t exist. Every once in a while, however, one comes along that sounds like a terrible idea on paper but somehow makes for a motorized miracle. That’s what we have for you today in this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette, which has been transformed into a dune buggy and is now up for auction.

By every measure, it doesn’t make sense that someone would want to turn a low, sleek, fiberglass sports car into a stripped-down sand shredder. However, now that it’s been stripped of its bodywork, lifted, equipped with a roll cage, and had its frame shortened both front and back, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t want to take this franken-car for a spin. That goes double when you realize it still has its original 345 HP 5.7-liter LS1 V8 powering it. Perhaps most bafflingly, this vehicle is actually street-legal and comes with a clean Arizona title, upping the value even further for whoever can beat the current $15,000 bid. She’s not pretty, but she’ll get the job done.

Purchase: $15,000+
