Crocket and Tubbs called. Their Corvette is currently for sale on eBay. Chevrolet built a total of 22,789 Corvettes for the 1988 model year. Of those, just 7,407 were convertibles and a little over 4,000 cars got a manual transmission.
While this car didn’t actually show up on Miami Vice, it certainly could have. Shortly after birth, it received a Ferrari Testarossa-esque conversion courtesy of Classics International out of southern California. From a distance, it’d be hard to tell this car apart from the real thing. Upfront it’s got the exposed fog lights and turn signals. Along the sides, we see the trademark widebody accents that wrap around into the rear end. Out back there’s a faux prancing horse emblem residing between the tail lights.
Inside we see a black and tan interior with and without fuzzy seat covers. There’s also the very 80’s burl wood trim throughout, a car phone, and an aftermarket radio. A custom steering wheel helps guide you done the road.
According to the seller this car is one of just 10 that were built and that this is the only one painted “with the red and purple undertones”. We think it kind of looks like Black Rose Metallic so no complaints here.
The odometer currently shows a little over 20,000 miles on it and the listing states that it was maintained by the local Chevy dealership. The listing goes on to state that it’s never been hit, and everything works including the air conditioning. That’s a good thing since the car is currently located in Las Vegas.
The Vette-a-rossa is listed with a Buy-it-Now price of $28,000 which is pretty hefty for a 1988 Corvette, even with a 1-of-10 conversion going for it. If you’re interested in this C4, get to work as the listing ends this Sunday at 1:57pm eastern time.
