Only 4 total 1986 Corvettes were ever sold featuring the Copper Metallic paint scheme. During this era, Copper Metallic was a color that left many at GM bewildered. Despite subsequent testing, the automaker found significant difficulty in trying to make paint of this particular color code adhere to the Corvette’s body. In fact, at more than one point throughout GM’s history, the Copper Metallic color scheme has been yanked from production due to quality control concerns.
I have 1 of the 4 copper metallic 1986 corvette Right at less than 60,000 miles and it is sweet!!!
I also have one of the 4 86 copper metallic Corvettes. It’s a z51 and it has 54,000 miles on it. I believe these are the only two of the 4 still on the road.
