Corvette 1988

Title Status --
Exterior Color Dark Red Metallic
Interior Color Black


Here's a classic 1988 Chevrolet Corvette with nice color combo, fuel-injected V8 power, and a loaded A/C interior. So yes, every once in a while you can find a vintage vehicle that gets you into the entry-level of the classic car world, and yet, still leaves you satisfied.

Dark Red Metallic is a great color to have on this Corvette. It provides the flair of red but with a darker tone of sophistication. Plus, it goes great with the darker elements of the car. On a C4 like this, the black glass roof panel on top and the dark rub strip that surrounds the whole 'Vette are crisp and dark, so they look fantastic against the paintwork. And really, the whole mid-C4 appearance is arguably the best of the bunch. It combines original elements like the full rotation headlights and concave rear styling with newer features like the top-mounted center brake light. Plus, those later-style factory alloys add distinction without taking away from the vintage flair.

When developing the C4, GM poured every bit of tech they could dream up into the 'Vette. Today it makes for a feature-filled inside that also has a retro-cool feeling. The black leather interior is anchored by a pair of power adjustable seats that help you find that ideal driving position. This is a highly original interior, so you find wear in the high traffic spots, but for the money you save, it gives you the option to choose preservation or restoration. The dual-spoke steering wheel was purposely designed to give you a commanding view of the unique instrument cluster. The digital gauges were state-of-the-art when they were introduced, and so it's a signature piece that everyone looks for today. That's why it's essential to have it looking as good as this one. But more than just the gauges, as you gaze across the entire interior, everything looks quite correct. This includes the controls for the power windows, power locks, and factory AM/FM/cassette stereo by Bose. The factory air conditioning is blowing cold, so this is perfect for taking out the targa roof and still staying cool while open to the world.

One of your favorite parts of owning this 'Vette will be opening the hood, because the C4 has that cool racecar-like appearance as nearly the whole front section tilts forward. And when you do that, you get an excellent view at the competition-worthy L98 350 cubic-inch V8. While the fuel-injected small block is one of those perfect motors for tuning, this example remains refreshingly original. And that's exactly the kind of powerplant you want in a preserved sports car like this. It fires up nicely and runs like a well-respected classic. Plus, with a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, cruise control, and a fully independent sports suspension, this Corvette has all the right features to be a great weekend getaway machine both for the interstates and the back roads.
