Default 88 barn vette

Just pulled this 88 out of a barn where it's been for 13 years. Have been told it has a rare gm factory body kit. Anybody know how I can confirm this?

its not a rare factory anything just an aftermarket body kit they were popular back then same with the Enkei (??) wheels. Bet those had a gold center webbing.
An 80s mobile for sure.

Actually it might be a bit rare as it may be a GM installed kit rather then some 3rd party generic kit. He posted more info in the General Discussion https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...arn-vette.html
