Modified C3 Corvette Is Made From Comic Book Dreams

Modified 1973 C3 Corvette Comic Book

If Wolverine ever decided to skip the X-Jet and get a car, it would probably look like this.

It’s no surprise why this C3 Corvette sold so quickly on ClassicCars.com. It’s a 1973 car with a supercharged 427 and a Turbo 400 automatic, making it a perfect drag-racing candidate. It even has relatively drag-ready tires, wearing 205s up front and 295s in the rear.

It’s in amazing condition as well. The engine got a full rebuild 3,000 miles ago, the supercharger was rebuilt, it has a new custom interior, and the body was given a full wrap to the tune of $4,000.

And that’s where the problem arises.

We 100 percent support anyone who wants to spend the time and money to make a car unique. But we 100 percent don’t have to like it. In case you missed the picture, this car is bright yellow, and it is covered in wild blue wave graphics. And with the big chrome breather hanging out of the hood, all we can think of is Wolverine. You know, the maniac X-Men character who wore that hideous blue and yellow spandex outfit. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but we think anyone who likes the blue and yellow scheme might be half blind.

It’s not the end of the world though. This is just a wrap, and while it’s a bit awful to just waste all that money, you can peel it off and go back to solid yellow. What you’re left with is a really solid performer that is worth the purchase. The car is well restored, and it features a lot of smart upgrades like the electric pop-up conversion. Even if you keep the questionable visual wrap, it is hard to argue against a C3 with close to 600 horsepower.

If you’re interested in this comic-book Corvette, we’re sorry to report that ClassicCars.com has sold it already. No word what the car went for, but you can snag more info direct from the site if you are looking to buy yourself a similar ride…maybe in another color.
