Corvettes on eBay: Rare Malcom Konner Edition 1986 Corvette

Malcolm Konner was a prominent Corvette dealer from the 1960s to the early 1980s who claimed to be “The World’s Largest Corvette Dealer” in his newspaper ads.

“Because we sold and serviced so many Corvettes,” Konner’s son RJ Konner told Corvette Magazine, “we were an invaluable resource for Chevrolet. They had a technician or engineer at the dealership 80 percent of the time to troubleshoot and help evaluate problems that came up in the field.

A 1986 Corvette wound up upside down after being struck by a 1999 Blazer Thursday morning, according to a Colorado State Patrol spokesman.

The accident happened in Hygiene, Colo., at 75th Street and Colorado 66 when the driver of the westbound Blazer turned into the path of the oncoming Corvette.

[PICS] 1986 Corvettes Customized on SPEED's Car Warriors From Us on Twitter

Last night on SPEED, we watched two shops from California duke it out as they attempted to modify and customize a 1986 Corvette in 48 hours. In the end, the blue team hailing from Shinbone Alley in Fresno came out on top with their 1986 Corvette which was finished in two-tone black and copper. The red team, from Sledsville in So-Cal, also went black and gold with their build, but their ambitious plan for customizing their Corvette was just too much to accomplish in 48 hours. Our friends at SPEED sent us some additional photography of the cars taken during filming of the show and we’ll share them with you after the jump.
