1987 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Mention the name Corvette and immediately someone in the conversation will perk up and pay attention. It's a timeless American sports car and has gone through several personality changes. From the 2-seat coupe when first introduced, to a fast 50's classic, to the Stingray versions of the 1960's and early 1970's. And now all sleek and trimmed with lots of power, no more chrome, retaining the hidden headlights and a much lower profile for the 80's.
For consignment, we now present, from way back in 1987, a morsel of Corvette history in the flesh, a Chevrolet Corvette! Drum roll please....
All clean deep blue painted fiberglass is seen on this exterior in fair condition. Some dulling in the paint, some areas of paint cracking and several inclusions have embedded themselves into this paint. On back is some major scratching from battles lost with the curb on the rear roll pan. A Greenwood Corvette aero package has been mounted on to the bottom of this car and it includes extra fairings for the rockers, and rear of the car, as well as the front spoiler in black but sans the Greenwood nose. A rear spoiler in body matching blue is on back and we look like we are ready to go road racing. A black canvas convertible top is on and it presents in very nice condition with a clear rear plastic window. 17-inch black wheels are on all 4 corners wrapped with good condition rubber.
Gray leather buckets grace the inside of this Vette. A digital driver information system is seen on the square design dash, as well as the 4-speed automatic transmission shifter in the console. Power windows, power steering and a key fob remote access button will get you into the rear storage area that has enough room to haul "stuff". Carpeting appears in good condition but has faded from its original gray to a lighter brown. Door panels are molded vinyl and contain a central black actuator panel with locks and a courtesy light. On the driver's side the upper sill panel is becoming unglued and is moved away from the actual door just a bit. The steering wheel is showing some paint rub off and is wrapped in a leather covering. The original radio is now replaced by an aftermarket JVC AM/FM/CD player. Directly above this is an information panel that will illuminate any potential problems on this screen when they arise. The top works flawlessly, and folds neatly into a rear fiberglass cowling all neat and seamless.
A 5.7 Liter electronic fuel injected V8 can be viewed within an original engine bay with the flip of the hood. Bolted on back is the 4-speed automatic 700R4 transmission. Keeping everything cool is an all electric fan cooling system. Feeding the engine is EFI, and on the back is a 2.73 axle.
Reasonably clean and rust free all good underneath with an overall light undercoating which has patinaed nicely. X-bracing shows and ties the car together for extra stiffening. Suspension includes an aluminum forged mono leaf spring and is seen on the front and rear. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
This car started right up and on the test track performed much like a 1987 Corvette! I was nagged by a check engine light in the previously described warning panel, the passenger headlight will not flip up, also the power mirrors and wipers are also not operating.
Overall a fairly clean Corvette with some extra Greenwood body fairings and a rear spoiler that the consignor has enjoyed and is now ready to move on. An exterior and interior that remains true to the 'Vette legacy of America's Sports Car.
