This Corvette Butt Transplant Finally Happened: C5 with C7 Rear Fascia
“Frankenstein”, “Looks like a$$”, “Eww”. Those are just some of the sentiments surrounding this C5 wearing a C7 rear fascia that member “Bandit 00C5″ posted to the forum. How awful is it to put a C7 rear fascia on a C5?
There’s nothing like a C5 Corvette that’s been kept in mint condition. You needn’t look any further than this 2004 Commemorative Edition Le Mans Blue Coupe as evidence. And lucky you, it’s for sale.
Think of this as an opportunity for you to learn a couple of new things about the C5 Corvette, or even be reminded of some things you may have forgotten along the way.
Even though both are unmistakably Corvettes, the C4 and C5 are very different cars.
