1988 Chevrolet Corvette B2K Callaway Twin Turbo for sale in Flushing MI
Stunning and simply as new 1988 Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette with less than 7,000 miles since new. The car has always been part of a Corvette collection and has received regular dry weather use and climate controlled storage. A truly amazing car to drive with 1988 being the last year for the 4+3 Manual transmission and it really was finally a joy to drive. The car is basically indistinguishable from new and needs nothing to be driven or shown at Corvette events. The Original owner of this Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette was famed Oregonian entrepreneur, Car Wash Innovator, and race car enthusiast, Daniel C. Hanna. Included are the Original full grain cowhide Callaway Corvette Owners Manual "Book Binder" including key codes, 1988 Corvette Owners Manual, special Callaway Turbo Systems Owners Manual PLUS Letter sized matching full grain cowhide Callaway Corvette Twin Turbo binder including Callaway Corvette specific manuals. The RPO B2K was the only time in Chevrolet’s history that a specialist manufacturer was entrusted with a technically advanced, high performance RPO. The 1987-1991 Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette could be ordered from select US dealerships, with the cars shipped to Callaway’s facility in Old Lyme, Connecticut for the twin turbo conversion, and then returned to the dealership for delivery. GM even went so far as to cover the Callaway conversion under their standard 12-month/12,000 mile warranty. Production of the Callaway Corvette was planned at just 500 – according to the Corvette Black Book, 188 were sold in ’87, 125 in ’88, 67 in ’89, 58 in ’90, and 71 in ’91, for an actual total of 509. Throughout production, changes were made. Optional wheels were available in 1987 cast out of magnesium from Dymag in England and were available in 16-inch diameter and later in the year, a 17-inch size. In 1988, power levels increased. Horsepower was now rated at 382 and torque rose to 565 lb-ft. That year also saw the 17-inch Dymag wheels become standard equipment with other options such as an automatic transmission and full leather interior also was offered. The Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette was officially produced, between 1987 and 1991 under the Chevrolet Regular Production Option “B2K”. By ordering a Corvette through the dealer, and checking the option box for B2K, it triggered a series of events, which ensured the cars received special equipment and handling. While the final production exceeded 500 Corvettes, the total that were ordered through the Bowling Green plant was lower due to a few factors. These factors included many dealers sent cars already in the process of delivery to their stores, or may have been on their lot and were used to "prime the system," as Reeves Callaway has explained to us. "Callaway Cars was under obligation to deliver a product, and we did so by taking some cars in after they left the Bowling Green Assembly Plant." These cars would not have had the RPO code in the glovebox, but would have been built using the exact same parts list and built to the same standard as any other Callaway Twin Turbo Corvette. Individuals could also send in their own Corvettes to Callaway in Old Lyme for what is called a “Direct Conversion”. These cars are built to the same standard as the cars during the Twin Turbo program however, some parts might be changed for what was currently available. As an example, a flat-hood on a 1987, or different wheels, etc. 1988: 05 cars were ordered with RPO B2K, while Callaway records show 125 cars constructed. Bowling Green records showed 50 coupes and 55 convertibles made while Callaway records showed 60 coupes and 65 convertibles. 1988 also saw the official release of the automatic transmission – 10 coupes and 16 convertibles were equipped this way. In 1988, Corvettes saw 17-in
