The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

1995 CORVETTE ZR-1

The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.

Classic Car Overview

If theres a bigger performance bang for the buck than the C4 Corvette, were not sure what it might be. Even 32 years later, this 1987 Chevrolet Corvette offers handling thatll embarrass more than 80% of todays cars, powerful brakes, and the legendary L98 small block V8. With only 39,725 original miles, this clean and unmolested Corvette coupe is a heck of a lot of horsepower and handling for the price of a 5-year-old Hyundai. The low-key white paint gives this Corvette a sophisticated look that is a pleasant change from all the silver and black C4s you see just about everywhere you go. Corvettes are plastic, so theres obviously no rust or damage to the bodywork, and the doors, as with most C4s, close with a reassuring thunk. The big clamshell hood fits well, another bugaboo that haunts Vettes that have been bumped, and the paint is in great shape for its age although it could stand a cut and buff if youd like to show it again. Both the front and rear bumpers are in nice condition with no cracking or discoloration, and I, for one, have always liked the high-mounted light atop the B-pillar hoop, which reminds me of the mighty ZR-1. The chin spoiler hasnt been terribly beaten up by steep driveways and the rockers have obviously avoided gravel roads in. There really arent any demerits to speak of, other than that a professional cut and buff would kick the Corvette up a notch, and even after all of these years this C4 still has a commanding street presence. The Saddle cloth interior was part of Corvettes state-of-the-art presentation, and GM poured every bit of tech they could dream up into the Vette, and even though this particular C4 isnt fully loaded, it still offers several amenities that make the driving experience a delight. The sport seats have been recovered and are some of the most comfortable ever fitted to a GM car, even today, and its easy to find just the right position. Theres a bit of very minor wear and tear inside, as youd expect, but the cabin overall is in good condition and certainly commensurate with its age and mileage. The door panels are excellent, the carpets are well-maintained, and the dash is uncracked, although a slightly saggy headliner can be easily addressed to erase the only demerit of note inside. The digital dash was perfectly in tune with the tech-happy 1980s and Corvettes came loaded with options like power windows and locks, A/C (could use a charge), a tilt wheel, cruise control, and a decent AM/FM/cassette stereo that has been left untouched, a rarity for an 80s sports car. The trunk area under the hatch is reasonably-sized and in excellent condition, too. Power comes from Chevys legendary tuned-port fuel injected 350 cubic inch V8, designated the L98 in the Corvette. In 1987, upgrades to the powerplant were substantial, like roller lifters for the camshaft and a revised exhaust system, so horsepower was up 10 to 240 and torque was rated at an impressive 345. It starts with a bark from the exhaust system and is at its best in cut-and-thrust driving where its perhaps the ultimate point-and-shoot machine. Linked to a 4-speed automatic transmission, its a fine grand touring machine whose road manners and performance were much improved over earlier models. Of note, it has not been modified or abused and it wears original 16-inch wheels with a machined finish that still look very good, all wrapped in performance radials at each corner. You probably wont find more performance for less cash anywhere else, and theres no question that the C4 Corvettes have bottomed-out the value scale, so they have nowhere to go but up from here. If you need a low-cost way to have some fun and get into the hobby with some of the best enthusiasts around, this might be your chance. Call now!
