This 1986 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible has the great look of a classic that has been given good investments over the years. It makes for the kind of drop-top you'll want to drive everywhere. After all, you get to enjoy the fuel-injected V8, and everyone gets to enjoy the sight of an impressively sleek classic.
The paint is a nice standout on this car. We have a receipt showing $$$$ thousands invested in a full respray in 2007, and it still retains a radiant metallic glow in the light that's perfect for a sunshine-friendly convertible like this. The color holds close to 1986's Dark Red Metallic, and we especially like how it has the excitement of red but gives it an added sophistication. It makes for a dignified appearance. It also harmonizes with the black on the folding top and body accent strip that encircles this car. Good body lines, clean factory alloys, and an overall quality appearance really makes for an attractive drop-top.
Just like the exterior red, the graphite grey interior has a great sophisticated tone. Plus, a receipt from 2012 documents a nice interior investment that includes the leather seat covers. A good Corvette is a terrifically loaded machine, and so this one has power windows, power locks, cruise control, working courtesy lights, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The radio has even been upgraded to give you the best in driving music. It's an AM/FM/CD unit with a USB input for your iPod and a subwoofer in the rear. The power adjustments and level of bolstering on the bucket seats remind you that this is a driver's car. That feeling is furthered by the dual-spoke steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. It's a setup specially designed to give you a clear view of the unique full digital gauge panel.
The L98 350 cubic-inch V8 is a great motor. It gave you the hardy reputation of the small block with the added power and consistency of the excellent Tuned-Port Injection system. This created a motor with a wonderfully versatile powerband that still delivers the right Corvette growl from the dual exhaust. And the C4 was also made to be a great grand touring machine. With a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS, power steering, and a fully independent suspension, this convertible is great for enjoying on trips near or far.
This is a shining classic with a terrific driving personality. So if you want to enjoy a deep red drop-top Corvette, call today!
