History of the 1988 Chevrolet Corvette: Chevrolet\'s Corvette has been recognized as America\'s finest sports car for many years and is one of the longest-running models in the brands\' history, coming second only to the highly recognized Suburban. Due to a new design and production delays, the Chevy team did not have a model to offer that year and therefore, missed their opportunity to celebrate the 30-year anniversary in 1983. As a result, focus was shifted to the 1988 Corvette in order to instead celebrate a 35th Anniversary Edition. All models would be identical in color and available in Coupe form only. In total, only 2,050 would be completed, each with special exterior badging and a numbered anniversary identification plate on the console. In addition, the special edition models were further distinguishable by a white exterior finish with a matching white leather interior and leather-wrapped steering wheel, along with larger 17 white allow wheels!
