The 2005 Corvette promos were manufactured by Revell. 2005 was the first year of the "C6" generation. Therefore, the promos were completely different than all the previous years. There were only convertible promos made in 2005. The bodies were molded as 1 piece of plastic with separate mirrors. These bodies were molded in dark orange, light gray or red plastic. The dark orange bodies were painted "Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic". The light gray bodies were painted "Machine Silver Metallic". The red bodies were painted "Victory Red", two-toned silver, had Indy Pace Car graphics, an "AN AMERICAN REVOLUTION" windshield banner and the rear license plate had a white Chevy bow-tie. The interior tub, rear wall, speaker panel, seats, seat backs, dash, gauge panel, shifter, door panels, steering column and steering wheel were all separate pieces. These parts formed the interior assembly. The clear plastic windshield and interior assembly were inserted into the underside of the body. The rear license plate was printed on the body and (except for the Indy Pace Cars) read "2005". The 5 spoke wheels were chrome plated. The blackwall tires had no lettering molded into the sidewall. The chassis was molded in black plastic and attached to the body with 4 black philips head screws.
Boxes: The 2005 Corvette promos came in white boxes with black artwork. The promo was wired to a cardboard tray inside.
Note: The interiors of Revell C6 Corvette promos are very easy to interchange. This website shows all the factory interior/exterior combinations for 2005-2007 Corvette Promos. Any combination not shown on this website was altered after it left the factory.
Note: There are additional 2005 Corvette promos located in the "Test Shots" section of this website.
Note: Revell also made a 2005 Corvette Convertible Snap Kit. This kit assembled just like a promo. It's located in the "Snap Kits" section of this website.
