Chevrolet Corvette Description
This is also known as Corvette Coupe. Although Mattel aquired Corgi in 1989, models never mixed until 1996 when there were several corgi casting found in the Hot Wheels line-up. This was quite short lived though. Although similar in appearence to '80's Corvette, this model is a former Corgi casting, and they are in fact 2 different cars. Based on the mid-'80's Chevorlet Corvette. This casting features an opening bonnet/hood.
