Corvette Of The Day: 1986 “Copper Metallic” Corvette
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.
