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!

Classic Car Overview

1989 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Myron E. Scott went to work for Chevrolet in 1937, as an assistant director for the Public Relations department, where he was responsible for photography of new cars, designing press kits, graphics, and special events. He was also known for being the creator of the All-American Soap Box Derby. After winning a contest with 300 submissions, Myron thought the name Corvette rolled off the tongue well and thought a tie to the fast strike ships called Corvettes from World War II would appeal to the American men, many who had served. This would go on to form the foundation for the nautical names that would be applied to Corvettes and concepts such as the Mako Shark and Sting Ray (later to be used as Stingray). For consignment, a very nice example of a 1989 Corvette in convertible form. Bathed in black with a black canvas convertible top and 350 cubes awaiting your command to fire up. Now is your chance to get into the classic car game and you are starting near the top with this Classic Corvette from the late 80s. Exterior Black like midnight, bathes the fiberglass sculpted exterior. Badging is all correct, as well as working hidden headlights. Black plastic trimming wraps entirely around this car at the midline and keeps with the all ebony theme. A black canvas convertible top gives you the ability to go topless or drive in the rain with it up and a body matching black hardtop is also included for a more coupe-like drive. A nice fiberglass rear top covering hides the top when in the down position. On the back are the round taillights deeply inset within the neoprene rear bumper and rear roll pan. Quad exhaust tips are showing off at the bottom of this bumper. 5 spoke satin finish wheels in 17 and 18 inch are noted on all on the front and rear respectively and there are no curbing marks on these. Interior Near perfect gray carpet floods the floors and the back trunk area, and also is in very good condition. Gray leather buckets, showing as original, have minimal wear with the usual fold lines that come with use. These buckets flank a black and gray center console/gray topped storage unit with hidden power seat controls in a cubby under the crossed flags plate. This console also houses the controls for power windows, and exterior mirrors, shift lever for the automatic transmission, climate control, aftermarket AM/FM/CD, and a data center with a screen to display information regarding gas mileage, service warnings and other key components of the car. An all digital cluster of gauges in colorful form all working like new are fronted by a black rimmed rally style steering wheel. Drivetrain The stout 350ci V8 small block is topped by tuned port electronic fuel injection and is backed by a 700 R4 4-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly with a 2.59 geared rear axle on the back. The engine is very clean and has little corrosion and nice shiny hoses and belts along with some tinted silver cast aluminum valve coverings. Save for a little bit of road dirt on the underside of the wheel wells, its all clean under this hood. Undercarriage C4 suspension is clean, showing a slight patina on the aluminum cast suspension. The frame and floor pans are all very sound. Power disc brakes are on all 4s. Drive-Ability A quick starter and good runner this car presented with no problems. Sit back and feel the pressure as you are pushed into your seat and let the wind blow through your hair. A very stout runner and still a looker 33 years later We are in the game here with a nice looking and well cared for Vette. A real celebration in the total style of the sporty car Harley Earl thought up 36 years earlier. And the legend continues...into your driveway.
