Default 08 black convertible z51/3lt/6spd

$29,500

I bought this car locally in "Nashville,TN" 11 months ago. The car had 53,464 miles on it, it now has 54,576. This is my 14th Corvette and I always tell my wife it is my last but that never is the case.

I think that this car may be a rare find, if not now possibly in the future?

The car was a GM PILOT VEHICLE delivered to the Tech Center in Warren Michigan on 4-17-2007. The VIN number is 1G1YY36W685100006. A very low number!

The car is a six speed Black Convertible with the power top. It has the Z51 suspension, NPP exhaust, NAV and 3LT package. The interior is a combo RED/BLACK. The wheels are QG6 Aluminum 5 spoke.

The car is completely stock as far as I can tell. I have added a skip shift kit and a Mild to Wild remote control.

With the miles, it has not been a "Garage Queen" other than for the last owner and myself. It looks good and drives great. I took it for EMISSIONS TEST today and it passed with no problem. If it sells, I will be looking for a Coupe with AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. I am getting too old for ROWING GEARS!

Thanks! I was not looking for a convertible when I bought it but it was so nice and loaded, I could not pass it up. I traded my 03 Anniversary convertible for this one. At the time, I did not notice the low VIN number and the History that goes with the car. I often wonder what GM did with it? They put 12,000 miles on it.

THANKS Another Forum member told me that only 300 2008 Models had that interior and 923 Convertibles had the Z51 option.

No buyers? If mine sells, I will be looking for a Red Coupe 3LT with Auto Trans.

It means that it was a car built for GM. The code is WD1 Pilot Vehicle. The car was built on 4-24-2007 and shipped to General Motors at Warren Michigan. I do not know what they did with it, other than to make sure it worked OK or possibly for Photo shoots? The VIN number indicates that this was the 6th Corvette built that was assigned a VIN number. I have included the build sheets in my post so you should see WD1 PILOT VEHICLE on page 2. This would be the 6th LS3 engine put into a production car! PS I had never heard of a PILOT CAR either and now I have one!
