Off the top of my head we have something like 18 no. 79's. There are double these numbers of 80-82's and double the no's of 78's.

Re: How many corvettes


If I'm reading the data correctly there are currently 2095 Corvettes in the UK - of which
112 are 1979's.

But only 46 are on the road. And one's mine
Clap

The rest are on SORN

79 L82 Auto

Having a lot of bhp is all very well, but on these forums it's torque that counts

2095 cars in the uk...im guessing this number is increasing slowly as they are getting imported. I dont suppose many leave the country once they are here

Re: How many corvettes


Hi,

Just had a chat with a well known dealer and he says that he has many Corvettes go thru his hands that dont even say Corvette on the V5 , sometimes is can say GMC Coupe or GMC Convertible , so basically I disagree with your figures ..

I imagine it could be almost double that ...


Kind regards

Jeff

I know of 7 C2's that have been imported and still not registered and 3 C2's that are no longer showing with DVLA. Higher higher!
