When the first Corvette was introduced to the public through the traveling caravan known as Motorama, everyone knew there was something special about it. Each subsequent model that followed continued to strengthen that position. But how do you upgrade Americas favorite sports car? Make it a special edition!
Special-edition Corvettes are the tip of the spear when it comes to American auto manufacturers’ special models. The 1967 L88 convertible, 1969 aluminum block ZL1, and 2015 Z06 #001 have all commanded $1 million or more. Modern dealer-tuned cars from Lingenfelter, Calloway, and Hennessey have carried the tradition of making a great Corvette even better. Extremely-low-mileage 1978 Pace Cars indicate that people have thought of these cars as investments for nearly 40 years.
Keith Cornett of Corvetteblogger.com has gathered a Murderer’s Row of special-edition Corvettes in this first compilation on the subject. This book is an encyclopedia of information about some of the rarest Corvettes on the planet, and will serve as a guide if you’re looking to add one of these special machines to your collection.
