Bill Mitchell has a lot to take credit for at General Motors. The late, great automotive designer touched countless vehicles over the decades he was a part of GM design.
This particular C3 Corvette wasn’t part of Mitchell’s design, however. In fact, the link to Mitchell seems quite weak, according to the 1980 C3 Corvette’s sale page on eBay. But, its “historical” presence is said to be traced back to a successor to Mitchell’s “Great White” Corvette.
The 1980 Corvette sits with only 700 miles on the odometer, and wears some very time appropriate paint hues.
It could be either the best, or worst, way to spend $250,000. There’s no documentation to back up the Mitchell linkage, but how cool would it be to know this Corvette had his blessing.
