C3 Corvette Information, Corvette Features, Corvette History, Corvette Videos
National Corvette Museum Published on Oct 20, 2016 Learn about the world's only 1983 Corvette in this video. The world's only 1983 Corvette has long been shrouded with mystery. Why is it the only one? How did it manage to survive? How did it wind up at the National Corvette Museum? In this installment of the NCM Heritage Series, we track down the people who were there as this car made its trip from the plant, through the Milford Proving Grounds, and into Corvette history. No 1983 Corvettes were sold to the public. The model year was skipped in preparation for the all-new 1984 Corvette, which launched the C4 generation. Forty-four Corvette prototypes were built as 1983 models. Only one remains, and it is on display at the National Corvette…

EYES on DESIGN June 21, 2015 Photos & Story By: Wayne Ellwood This Corvette was featured in the August 2015 issue of Vette Vues Magazine. Owner: Dan McMichael This particular car is the last one built by Joel Rosen. Back in the 1973-74 timeframe, Joel was facing some rather strong pressure from the EPA. His cars were rolling offenses....according to them. In the end, he agreed to pay a small fine for violating new environmental regulations and stop building these types of cars. Apparently, this choice was better than the alternative. This car is presented almost in “as purchased” condition. Although the car was repainted by Joel and the driveline has been refurbished, the car is pretty much original. Even the interior, which strikes many as being an odd color, is…
