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

The rest are on SORN

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

Re: How many corvettes


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

Re: How many corvettes


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!
