1994 Corvette C4 Coupe - 1 of 92 - wip

"Copper Metallic" (WA136A)

"Ten different exterior colors were available for '94, with only 116 of the 23,000+ Corvettes painted in this color, easily making the rarest color offered. In fact, when producing these cars in the Bowling Green factory, Chevrolet determined it would be especially difficult to match this color consistently on the various body panels. After only three days, the decision was made to pull the plug on this color after only 91 coupes, 24 convertibles, and possibly one ZR1 were built."

So: let's do this. As there are only 92 Coupes out there, I named my album this way.

Some more information:
The color code for the copper metallic is WA136A (DuPont: B9421; PPG Code: 4808)
An overlook of the color codes by year for the Corvete C4: corvetteactioncenter../c4_paint_codes.html
Another link selected by C4 1994: paintref.com/cgi-bin..year=1994&con=oy
Googlesearch results: google.com/search?q=..orvette&tbm=isch ; on some pictures you can see how difficult it was to paint. Some front ends have little other color like the rest of the car.

This color looks incredible on the C4.

🙂 I found three Copper Metallic-isch Corvettes and I think, it will be a nice addition. When you go through the years, there are so many nice colors. I can not build them all. But a bunch of them I'll do.
I never thought, zhat I will be fixed on to the Corvette that much. I have to concentrate to the basic project again *lol*
