If you just happen to be working on a low-budget reboot of the post-apocalyptic classic Mad Max, then I think we may have found your star vehicle. One of the stranger finds to come up while searching “one of a kind” on eBay Motors is this custom 1966 Mad Max Corvette that is offered for sale by Orlando Classic Cars. The ad says that it “always draws a crowd”, and by the looks of the weaponry on this thing, we’ll bet it does a decent job of dispersing one as well.
While anyone can take a 1966 ‘Vette and make it look badass with flat black paint and some cool red graphic stripes, it takes a special kind of crazy to go the whole Mad Max. Not as crazy as Mel Gibson turned out to be after playing Max in three installments of the movie, but still, pretty crazy.
The devil is in the details, and he possible was someone’s partner when they started to build this ungodly machine. As you look closer, you start to see all the gun muzzles and bullets dangling off of this thing.
The roof is adorned with some nice “faux scrap metal” and a metal spiked mohawk. It makes you have to wonder whether this is supposed to be for former policeman, Mad Max’s car, or if it supposed to belong to the “Ayatollah of Rock-n-Rolla” himself, the Humungus (you know, that muscle-bound hockey mask guy from The Road Warrior).
Powered by a 400-hp 383 Stroker engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, you’ll make the most of the traffic-free roads of the apocalyptic wastelands. According to the seller, “the car is a blast to drive and handles great.” Translation: You can BLAST away at drugged-out wasteland freaks with the M-16s hidden under the grille and it HANDLE any dune buggies and motorcycles pirates trying to smash your windshield with chains and garden hose filled with lead shot.
As you can see from the above pics, whoever made this car had the foresight to know that machine guns, while appropriate for most post-apocalyptic situations, still needed to be supplemented with various other weaponry. Variety is the spice of life (or death) so you also get grenades, rockets, an axe and the nice touch of barb wire in case someone parks a little to close. But here comes the piece de resistance….
How many times have you been driving down the road when you were left without an 8-inch cutting device to help you navigate through pesky traffic? Here’s your solution. Not only is it good for fending off radiation freaks and gas bandits, it’s perfect for all your Crocodile Dundee “That’s not a knife” jokes you’ve been storing up over the years.
All kidding aside, it looks like someone actually put a lot of time and creativity into this unique ride. If you want it, it can be yours. You’d better hurry though, as there is only about 12 hours left on the auction at the time of this writing.
