In theory, if you put together the best of two worlds you should get one great product, but we’re not really feeling it here with this Volvette.
This creation dresses a 1992 Corvette coupe with actual body parts – or so the seller says – from a 1967 Volvo P1800 and we quote the ebay description:
“A complete 1992 Corvette and a complete 1967 Volvo 1800 were the starting point for this professionally constructed custom car. The body panels of the Corvette were modified and/or replaced with the Volvo 1800 body parts to create a vehicle that appears to be a modern looking Volvo 1800, but with all the amenities of a modern vehicle. This car is basically a Corvette that looks very much like a custom Volvo 1800 . It is titled and licensed as a 1992 Corvette.”
One thing that the builder didn’t / couldn’t get right is the roof with the windshield and side windows betraying the replica’s foundations. In addition, the Corvette’s interior was left intact.
Right now, the highest bid on ebay for the 5.7-liter V8-powered model stands at $10,000, without having met the seller’s reserved, which should be over $30,000, as that’s the point that the previous auction ended without a sale.
