2008 Wil Cooksey Limited Edition Z06 Corvette
For those of you who know these cars, I don\'t need to say any more, however, for those who haven\'t heard of the Wil Cooksey special edition, here are some specs and the story behind this particular car.
In 2008 a prominent GM Union exec. ponied up the $85K and had delivered to his lake Michigan home, a beautiful Crystal Red Tintcoat Wil Cooksey Edition Z06 Corvette. Number 202 out of 505 (427 produced for the US market, 78 went international). He enjoyed the car for several years and even had a special under-hood insulation mat made for it and the Z OHH 6 license plate commissioned for it. After a few years of enjoyment, the new SS Camaro\'s were being introduced and he needed to have one... of each.. a coupe and convertible. He chose to sell off the Wil Cooksey Vette with less than 2000 miles on the clock. That is when the current owner purchased the car. In the past 4 + years, the current owner has only driven her roughly 400 miles, putting a whopping total of 2384 miles on this beautiful car. He loved this car so much, he had a special garage built especially for her. After having this car for a few years and enjoying the times out, he is ready to move her on to someone else and get into an older Corvette.
The asking price is $75,000. There are many dealers asking the original list on this car still and only examples with many more miles are selling for much less. There may be room for some negotiation.
