 Vehicle Description
The fourth generation Chevrolet Corvette was introduced at the close of 1982 production as a 1984 model and ended in 1996, meaning that there''s no such thing as a "1983 Corvette" (through 44 prototype 1983s were built, number 23 is the only survivor and is housed at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green). The C4 Corvette is known for it''s sleek look. Instead of fiberglass, it was made from reaction injection molding plastics, a sheet molding compound. The C4 coupe also is the first Corvette to have a glass hatchback (except for the 1982 Collectors edition) for better storage access. It also had all new brakes with aluminum calipers. The Corvette C4 came standard with an electronic dashboard with digital liquid crystal displays for speed and RPM. The C4 was a complete redesign of the previous generation, and the emphasis was on handling. The C4 Corvette was proclaimed the best handling car ever when it was released. This handling cam with the benefit of a solid, uncompromising ride. The unit-body frame used in the C4 was prone to rattles and squeaks due to minimal sound deadening. Also due to the external unit-body frame, the door sills were high and entry and exit have been likened to a "fall in and climb out" experience. The emergency brake was relocated between the seats in the 1988 for easier entry and exit. From 1984 through 1988, the Corvette was available with a Doug Nash "4=3" transmission - a 4-speed manual coupled to an automatic overdrive on the top three gears. This unusual transmission was a synergy that allowed corvette to keep a stout 4 speed, but add an overdrive. As technology progressed, it was replaced by a modern ZF 6-speed manual. However, the C4 performance was hampered by it''s l98 250 hp (186 kW) engine until 1992, when the second-generation LT1 was installed, markedly improving the c4s performance. 1996 was a high point of small block Chevrolet development and the 330 hp 9246 kW) LT4 was installed in all manual transmission cars.
