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 Museum, in Bowling Green, Ky.
