Hi, again I'm still having a problem uploading pictures, but I'll leave that for some other time. Does anybody know whether at  the time when C3 were in production, one could order a corvette airbrush sprayed to his/ her own liking ? If yes, could anyone tell a company name that use to do them please? Joe

  To my knowledge, the answer is no. Not saying this probably could have been worked out between a dealership and a customer. But back then dealers were only interested in one thing, selling cars. Nice looking car.................jack

As I remember, throughout GM, no unique airbrush jobs, other than what might have been offered as part of a "Special Edition Pkg". Prior to "soft bumpers", any customer could order a "special color" from the factory, as long as it was a paint they could work with and you could identify the source so that they could get the codes. The paint job itself, was like any other production car/truck. There was an additional charge for this but, again as I remember, it wasn't all that much, and could be waived on large enough fleet orders. I was with Pontiac Division but the policy was throughout GM. The problem started with the soft bumpers having to have a more elastic paint. For a brief time, you could still get special colors but, the soft components would still come through in a standard color. That didn't last too long because all of a sudden, up popped some weird looking cars. To my best knowledge, the only special paint to survive was ultra large accounts, like Mary Kay. Sorry to ramble, I hope this answers your question.  Dan
