Description

The '80's Corvette is modeled after the planned GM 1983 Chevrolet Corvette. But no 1983 Corvettes were ever produced for commercial sales. Of the 43 prototype and assembly line test cars that were made up through early September 1982 - only one vehicle remains. It currently resides at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky on permanent display. When Corvette production resumed in January 1983, a decision was made by GM to sell those cars as an early production run of 1984 models.

This casting featured an opening hood and a two-tone interior. The window piece includes a painted roof and can be found in various opacity versions for most release years. This casting design does not have door mirrors included.

A similar casting was released in 1996, called the Corvette Coupe and is an Ex-Corgi casting. They are often mistaken for each other, the main difference is door mounted side mirrors.
