The 2002 Corvette promos were manufactured by Revell. There were 3 different bodies styles offered this year: coupes, convertibles and Z06 hardtops. All three bodies were unchanged from 2001 to 2002. They were molded as 1 piece of plastic with separate mirrors. The "2002" rear license plate was a separate piece and glued to the body before it was painted (or clear coated). The convertible bodies were molded in white plastic and painted "Electron Blue Metallic". The Z06 hardtop bodies were molded in white plastic and painted "Quicksilver Metallic". The coupe bodies were molded in either white or yellow plastic. The yellow coupe bodies were clear coated. The white coupe bodies were painted "Speedway White". There weren't any notable interior changes from the previous year. The Z06 hardtops had different seats than the coupes and convertibles. The interior tub, seats, seat backs, dash, shifter, door panels and steering wheel were all separate pieces. These parts formed the interior assembly. The clear plastic windows and interior assembly were inserted into the underside of the body. The front license plate read "CORVETTE". The coupes and convertibles used the same style chrome plated wheels as the 2000-2001s. These wheels had 5 thin spokes and resembled the optional high polished wheels. The Z06 hardtops received chrome plated Z06 style wheels. The blackwall tires had "GOODYEAR" "EAGLE F1" molded into the sidewall (all 1999-2003 Revell Corvette promos had the same style tire). The chassis was the same as the 2001s, except it was printed "2002 CORVETTE" "USED UNDER LICENSE". The chassis was attached to the body with 4 black philips/straight head screws.
Boxes: The 2002 Corvette promos came in white boxes with black artwork. The promo was wired to a cardboard tray inside.
Note: The 2002 "Millennium Yellow" Corvette coupe promos were not available at Chevrolet dealers nationwide.
Note: The interiors of Revell C5 Corvette promos are very easy to interchange. This website shows all the factory interior/exterior combinations for 1999-2004 Revell Corvette Promos. Any combination not shown on this website was altered after it left the factory.
