Unless you are a serious Corvette enthusiast you’ve probably never heard of Tommy Morrison, but he wasn’t the lead singer of the Smiths or a professional boxer. However, he prepared and modified Corvettes for racing purposes back in the 80s and was credited with more SCCA (Sports Car Club of America) showroom stock victories than any other builder and he was (probably) the reason SCCA banned the Corvette from stock classes in 1988. Regardless, if you want to put some money into a car that could be the equivalent of a future “Shelby” or “Saleen” or “Ruf” — this could be a good bet. Or maybe you just like something to go with your gold chain? Find this 1984 Chevrolet Corvette C4 offered for $5500 in Washington Township, NJ via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

This Corvette may be one of a kind, or at least is very rare. it has a Tommy Morrison Body Kit ( ground effects package). This body kit was manufactured by Morrison Automotive, his shop that built his race cars back in the 80s/90s to provide aerodynamic stability in his race car. It consists of fiberglass panels completely around the car from the black center line down and a rear spoiler. I have done extensive research on the internet and have not found another car with this kit. I did find a picture of his race car on Corvette forum. One of his race cars is on display in the Smithsonian.
