Sorry about the unfortunate accident with your 84 TA. The Vette's a great car, and this one's great find. The C4 is the most under appreciated generation Mo.Yr. This is the first gen. Vette that was totally computer designed. And built new from the ground up. I love mine.

About

After the "unfortunate incident" with my 1984 Trans Am, I went through a dark period where I just couldn't muster any enthusiasm for a sporty car. I finally started coming out of it a bit at the end of the 1989 model year and was negotiating with a Pontiac dealer for a new TA. A friend of mine heard that I was looking and offered to sell me his one-owner 1986 Corvette for whatever price I could weasle out of Pontiac for the new TA. The car had 4,000 miles on it and still had the "new car" smell about it, but he just wasn't driving it and he wanted the garage space for another vehicle. I took the opportunity to pick up a Corvette.

It doesn't get used much or driven in any sort of inclement weather. The exterior and the interior has been kept nicely detailed but it needs some cleanup under the hood.

Oh, and yes, it IS true that this generation of Corvette will exceed 150 MPH out of the box. ;)

Specs

The car is bone stock in every way. I'd like to tear it apart and blueprint the engine but haven't had an excuse to do so as of yet.

Factory Options

The car is fully optioned, including the top-of-the-line (for that year) Bose AM/FM/cassette stereo.

Mods

None.
