Are you considering purchasing a wrecked corvette? This video explains what you need to do when looking at repairable corvettes for sale.
If you’re looking at a certified pre-owned, late model used corvette, with a warranty if at all possible.
A newer used Corvette is a big investment, mostly over $35,000. And it’s a technologically complex vehicle, so you want to be as sure as possible that it’s been serviced, inspected, and guaranteed. You need to find the right mechanic for the inspection, someone who understands Corvettes and the specific year you’re considering. Deal breakers would include any kind of branded title, such as “Salvage” or “Reconstructed.” Those cars will always be very hard to resell and aren’t usually worth what sellers are asking. You should have a mechanic check it out like any other used car, especially because of the comparatively higher prices Corvettes command and the possibility that the car has been driven very hard. Corvettes have already had big run-ups in value. To buy into a Corvette that has a lot of appreciation potential, you’re going to need to spend a lot of money up front.
