Is this the #99 yellow car? If so it was listed as totaled.

Your email probably won't be flooded with offers with that level of information. Perhaps you have some more details to share?

This is not a Corvette Challenge Car as Daniel researched it as totaled. That car was totaled so bad after the end of the season that the passenger was killed and the driver paralyzed. He was impaled by the driveshaft that came up through the tunnel. I know where some body parts of the Challenge Car are.

Maybe Rutherford drove that car, but itís not the one he raced in the Pro Corvette Challenge. A real B9P will run between $30-47k and are very well documented to ensure these collector cars are not counterfeited.

The salvage title also makes this car worth near zero to any collector. If this car is a salvage title, I would recommend parting it out or selling it for the value of a salvage C4 with those miles, 4k?

Iím not inferring that the car for sale has a bad title, rather that this car is not the car RPO B9P Corvette Challenge Car produced by Chevrolet . It may have some parts from the #99 Challenge Corvette, but thatís it.

Here’s a photo of the rear clip salvaged from the actual #99 Corvette Challenge Car. And no, they wouldn't try to salvage the cage, rather replicate it.
