Over the weekend, a wholesale company specializing in repairable vehicles sold a damaged 2014 Chevrolet Corvette on eBay for the not-everyday low price of $46,100.
The company, called 74 Auto LLC, listed the clean-title Corvette with a “Buy it Now” price of $46,900, but after 27 bids, the highest bidder won the car for $800 less than the “Buy it Now” price.
The Stingray may have had a bite taken out of it, but 74 Auto said in their listing that the frame and cooling system averted damage. The eBay listing also says the suspension “appears to be OK”.
Twenty-seven bids is pretty good for a wrecked ‘Vette on eBay. I’d speculate a lot of those bids were from repair shops looking to fix the car and sell it for a profit. I believe private buyers are disinterested in wrecked cars like this because in a post I wrote a few months ago, many of you got upset that a dealer was revving a Corvette that just came off the delivery truck. To verify my belief, I’ll poll you.
Could you discount damages enough to be able to purchase a used Corvette like this at a discount? If not, how low would the price have to be in order for you to buy a C7 in this condition? Let us know in the poll below.
