I was told that it was part of a special order for a Corvette Club in Pennsylvania. Not sure how many cars were produced. Could be as few as 20 to 25.
They are signed with the initials R W and numbered. This is chassis number 005.
Only other one Ive ever seen is pictured on Corvette promo dot com website. Car began life as an MPC 1978 two tone silver Corvette promo. Then came several coats of hand rubbed black lacquer paint... Which looks like its a foot deep. The spoilers, mirrors, wheels, tires and decals are from the MPC Indy 500 Corvette Pace Car kit #1-3710 Perfect windshield post.
There is another version of this car but it was made using an MPC 1979 Corvette promo. Build quality compared to this version is poor at best.
