The item numbers have no correlation to any of the original manufacturers' item or part numbers. When this website assigns an item number to a particular Corvette promo it will never change. Collectors are welcome to use these item numbers as a reference.
Why does CorvettePromo.com use color names that differ from what's printed on the original boxes?The dealer promos are listed with their correct GM color name, regardless of what was printed on the original box. The friction promos are listed with generic color names.
