Little red Corvette, baby, youre much too fast Little red Corvette, you need a love thats gonna last. Prince The lyrics to Princes 1982 song capture the timeless appeal of every Corvette (red or any other color), certainly including the C4 cars which were in the late stages of development when the song hit the charts. This fourth Corvette generation would endure for a dozen years, from 1984 through 1996. The C4 Corvette represented a major development for Chevrolet and, over its long production run, featured many firsts for the legendary marque. Not least of these was the replacement of earlier Corvette body-on-frame construction with a steel birdcage uni-body, and a center spine connecting the engine to the differential and supporting the drive shaft. Body stiffness improved dramatically. The new exterior body design incorporated a track-inspired, clam-shell-style hood, hinged at the front, which exposed the entire engine for easy-access servicing. A horizontal rub strip bisected and surrounded the body and, in addition to giving the car a design signature for its wedge look, also concealed the seam where the two fiberglass body panels were joined. The C4 cars were lower, but also shorter than the earlier C3-series Corvettes, and delighted owners with more interior room, and a more comfortable seating position. Digital instrumentation and a completely re-designed interior with new seating technology were significant changes. Other innovations included power rack and pinion steering, forged aluminum suspension components, fiberglass transverse-mounted front and rear springs, and four-wheel disc brakes. The C4 was truly an all-new Corvette. In 1985 and 86, there were developmental improvements over the 84 model. As Car and Driver noted approvingly: Thats the way it has to be when your stated goal is producing the worlds best sports car. The more efficient L98 350 cubic-inch (5.7 liter) TPI (Tuned Port Injection) engine rated at 230 horsepower was standard. On overall performance, Hemmings Motor News declared: ... the C4 was a world-class sports car, capable of 150 MPH and .95g on the skid pad, at a fraction of the cost of a Ferrari. The very well-maintained, low-mileage, 1986 silver-over-red Corvette convertible offered here captures the Eighties vibe perfectly. At just 30,428 original miles, the car has traveled fewer than 900 miles per-year on average, making it a true (and rare) very low-mileage Corvette. The cars original light silver paint retains its like-new gloss overall; there is no sign of fading or significant wear. With the red interior and black fabric soft-top, its a classic combination that has retained its timeless appeal. All badging is present in the factory-applied locations on the body including the Tuned Port Injection nomenclature on the front fenders. The rear-deck luggage carrier is a handsome extra. Cabin glass and all lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. Original-equipment, crossed-flags-logo, 16-inch styled aluminum wheels in pristine condition are mounted with Sumitomo performance tires. Inside, the highly regarded bucket seats created specifically for the C4 by Lear-Siegler are upholstered in crimson-red leather. The seats are known for their comfort and highly effective side-bolstering. The s
