Well, there is a claim from a person named Chris Smith, that anybody with access to a Canadian dealership, can ask the dealership to pull up the C8 configuration tool via the GM workbench. So, a few people on the Corvette forum recently did just that, and were told there was no such configuration tool, but this did not keep the screen shoots, shot on a cell phone by user NBVette4U of, from going viral. It is further stated that this tool was only issued to all Canadian GM dealers.

There are a few reasons to think these documents may not be real. First off, there are small formatting inconsistencies and typos throughout and look unprofessional, not something GM would allow out the door. Second, the colors are listed as “Rapid Blue,” “Zeus Bronze,” and “Black” and don’t sound like color names GM would use. Third, there is no mention of engine options, like the twin-turbo V-8 we reported on a few weeks back that was bending the frame on the C8.

If all this is not enough to make you think twice about the accuracy of this report, why would GM only release this information to Canadian dealers, and why is only one-person reporting seeing this information if all Canadian dealers have this information?!

Stunning, low miles N.C.R.S.Top Flight!

What Mike likes about this car:
“It was 1992 and Corvette Mike was celebrating its 10th anniversary of being in business in Southern California. I am a huge fan of white interior and it’s so coincidental that today I am able to offer the super rare COPO Chevelle red with white interior and this stunning 1992 also red with white interior. Both are breathtaking in my opinion and will always be sought after by collectors worldwide.”

The original owner had this car in his private collection for years and it was purchased by the 2nd owner with only 1700 miles. Believed to be 8,100 original miles now.

It is a beautiful and rare (1 of only 232 built) color combination and even rarer with hardtop option. it also comes with N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award; Preservation Class with a score of 99.4!
