Default New Carl’s Jr. Ad Stars a ’75 Corvette That's Up for Grabs



Carl’s Jr. has had some pretty impressive spokespeople over the years, but none will probably deliver the kind of knock-out punch that the latest Carl's Jr. model will: a ’75 Stingray.

Read the rest on the Corvette Forum homepage. >>

I liked the Count's 75 build over the Gas monkey's 68. Plus they didn't destroy a rare desirable car in the process. I'm not knocking either I just favored the 75.

They nailed it, in fairness to Gas Monkey their goal was a Hot Wheel car and they did exactly that.
I love the old c3 racer look and didn't think they could make a 75 look that good.

Just curious what a paint job like that would run these days?

Saw the show last night. Finished results was great. Someone will be a lucky recipient of a cool 75.

You're looking at $10-$15K for paint like that. add $5K for body work.

Watched the episode last night. The format fit exactly what Count loves to do best... all 70s, all the time.

Why does the ad photo show a car that looks nothing like the finished car?

The contest to win the car has been going on for a couple weeks now. I'm sure they didn't want to ruin the reveal on the show and build some buzz for the episode.

So all in 20k, i think that might be a little low, either way say 20, add 15 for starting point and your'e into for 35k, thats a pretty badass ride/ show car for 35 k imo.

You can watch the Carl's Jr. Corvette episode on History.com. You'll need your cable provider's username and password to stream the show.

Anyway, here are a few screenshots to give those of you who did not watch the episode, an idea of what the car looks like.

Personally, I like stock-looking cars, but they did a decent job with this one ... I can only assume, since they never show the actual work being done.
As far as the paint goes, since I was a teenager during the 1970's I saw plenty of metalflake paint jobs, which—just like bell-bottom pants—should be relegated to that era.
