Corvettes for Sale: 2008 'Wil Cooksey' Corvette Z06 427 Limited Edition No. 006


Corvette owners love exclusivity, and this 2008 Z06 427 Limited Edition model is a prime example.

Currently up for sale on bringatrailer.com, five bids have already climbed to $60,000 for this very nice one-owner Corvette, and that figure is likely to climb with five days still left in the action.

Not bad for a car that listed for $85,945 when new.

And this one appears to be just about like it left the Bowling Green factory more than a decade ago, having covered just 1,000 miles during that time.

All 427 Limited Edition models, of course, had the same Crystal Red Tintcoat paint with a central black stripe over a Dark Titanium leather interior and were very well equipped, including the 3LZ Preferred Equipment package, 427-only chrome wheels and interior trim, 6-speed manual transmission, and the optional navigation system.

Even with this much time passed since its debut, this limited edition ’08 still produces more horsepower with its 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine (505) than the upcoming 2020 mid-engine Stingray (495) and will go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.7 seconds at 125 mph.

One neat feature of all 427 Limited Editions is the fact that Wil Cooksey – Corvette plant manager from 1993 to 2008 – chose the color scheme and then signed and numbered the inside of all 505 armrest console lids. Check out the photo showing this particular example’s signature.

Other 427-exclusive features include “427” hood badges, a body-color rear lip spoiler, and body-color trim on the door handles.

The Carfax report is clean for this car, which is No. 6 out of the 505 produced for worldwide sales (with 427 appropriately sold in North America), and shows one registered owner in Michigan (original delivery to Les Stanford Chevrolet in Dearborn) and two oil changes, one in August 2013 at 488 miles and another in May 2019 at 947 miles.

The new owner will receive the window sticker, build sheet, factory manuals, and a clean Michigan title.

  1. You have to keep in mind that the C6 performance numbers are actual 0-60 and standing quarter mile times, unlike the current C7 & C8 rolling 1 ft times that subtract wheel spin and 1 ft forward motion from the times. Most C7 reviews from professionals indicated that the difference in actual times verses reported times were 0.3 to 0.4 second differences. Accounting for this difference, places the C6 Z06 only 0.4 seconds slower 0-60 than the new C8 Z51, with identical quarter mile times and a faster trap speed (125 mph vs 121 mph).

    I plan to keep my 2013 Z06 for at least a few more years until the C8 Z06 or ZR1 is released. Even then I am still not sure if I want to give up the fun of a manual for the faster DCT. Thankfully, I also have a 2013 427 that I plan to keep regardless if I upgrade my Z06 to a C8.

  2. My god that is one beautiful C6, my other favorite color too. I have a very nice JetStream Blue C6 which is my other favorite color, but compared to this one mine is a little embarrassed. Mine is very nice but has way more miles and this one costs about 3-4 times what I paid for mine. Damn nice though.
