You're looking at a 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe. A very strange 2006 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe.

Welcome to another episode of Autotrader Find, where I try to find the most exciting cars for sale on Autotrader, along with the strangest cars that you never knew existed. This one probably falls into the latter category. It's a 2006 C6 Chevy Corvette that's been given a completely new body to resemble a C2 Corvette, which was made from 1963 to 1967.

According to the listing, this particular Corvette was created by a company called Karl Kustoms, whose build process is "a detailed sequence of events, based on craftsmanship and quality." And I must admit, the body looks pretty much like it came from the factory, without any glaring problems or errors immediately visible in the 16 photos in the listing.

It also looks a bit like a C2 Corvette, which is perhaps the Corvette's most revered body style. The rear is an excellent C2 Corvette replica, with its fastback design, and the front is pretty close, too. Where this particular rebody runs into issues is its profile, as the C6 Corvette's wheelbase is considerably -- and noticeably -- larger than the C2's.

Inside, this rebody is totally unchanged from a standard C6 Corvette, which means you'll have your CD player, your climate control, your heated seats and practically everything missing from an actual C2 Corvette.

For a driver who really wants a C2 Corvette and doesn't want to put up with any of the issues of owning an older car -- like maintenance, parts availability and lack of modern amenities -- this could be an excellent alternative. Perhaps the only real drawback is its price: It's offered by McKee Auto and RV in rural Perry, Iowa, with 50,000 miles for $54,988. That's probably just enough to buy an actual C2 Corvette.
