Engine & Transmission:
The first Corvette produced at Bowling Green was this 1981 model, on June 3, 1981.
The Bowling Green facility was previously a Chrysler air conditioning factory.
Kentucky Governor John Y. Brown drove this car off the end of the assembly line to commemorate the opening of the factory.
Earl Harper, plant manager for the new Bowling Green facility, handed the keys to local Chevrolet dealer Jimmy Greenway, who had sold Chevrolets in Bowling Green for a quarter of a century.
The car has been stored since purchase exactly as it left the factory.
