2008 Wil Cooksey Z06 Crystal Red / Black / Titanium two-tone Leather Corvette Wil Cooksey Limited Edition Z06 (1/500 produced) 3LZ Premium Option Package, 6-Speed Manual Transmission, Bose Navigation Stereo, and the Spider Chrome Wheels with only 22k miles!

This is an immaculate condition, low mileage Wil Cooksey Limited Edition (1/500 produced) with all the original badges, no modifications, and the original Wil Cooksey signature. I had the immense privilege of meeting Wil Cooksey at a car show in 2013 in Houston, TX. He was a remarkable man. I told him I had a 1994 Polo Green and a 1995 Aqua Blue Corvette when I was younger. Without looking at a book, he could tell me how many of those colors were made, how many were made with different interiors, and quote all the option codes for the C4 without looking at the book. He was a walking Corvette Encyclopedia. Wil was a highly adored plant manager at the Corvette Bowling Green factory from 1993-2008 and was inspirational in pushing the Corvette product line to enhance the body style changes and increase its performance.

Without his leadership, most say, the product line would not have been left in production during the 2008 Great Recession, and the Corvette as we know it might have been discontinued. When he was nearing retirement GM had talked of retiring the Corvette product line, and GM was actually to become a State Owned Enterprise by the US Government to keep the 100-year-old company alive. Wil insisted the Corvette product line continue to be produced and that GM would not close it down.

After this challenge to our country, GM continued to produce the Corvette, but due to economic challenges in our country, production numbers were lowered by 70-80%. Thank you, Mr. Cooksey, for your contribution to our field. We hope Wil is doing great and staying healthy!

All Wil Cooksey 427 Limited Edition models were equipped with Crystal Red Tintcoat paint with a central black stripe over a Dark Titanium leather interior and were very well equipped, including the 3LZ Preferred Equipment package, 427-only Spider chrome wheels and interior trim, 6-speed manual transmission, and the navigation system.

The Wil Cooksey limited edition Corvette was the last of 427 cars built specifically for North America and the only 2008 Z06 available in a Crystal Red Metallic Tint Coat and a 7.0L 427cid LS7 V8 engine with 505hp. The vehicle contains spider-chrome-design Z06 wheels, Z06 sill plates, a Stinger-style stripe on the front hood, fascia, chrome exterior badges, and a painted Z06 spoiler and body-color door handles.

The Wil Cooksey 427 Corvette also features a Dark Titanium leather-wrapped interior and a special Crystal Red center trim plate. All 427 of the limited edition Corvettes were signed and numbered in the center console area by Wil Cooksey, the Corvette plant manager who retired in 2008 after 15 years as the plant manager. Thanks to its strong engine, the Wil Cooksey Corvette can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds. Another unique item about this Corvette was there were only 427 released in North America. The other 63 were sold overseas, making it rare.
