Classic Car Overview
1992 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Same owner for the past 11 years One of 20,479 Corvettes made in 1992; one of 14,604 Corvette coupes made that year Nearly 30-year-old Corvette with fewer than 26,000 miles on the clock! LT1 5.7L V-8 engine with multi-port fuel injection (MPFI) and generating 300 hp and 330 lbs-ft of torque Four-speed automatic transmission (4L60) Bright Red (code 81U) exterior with red leather interior (code 733) Air-conditioning, cruise control, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power locks, power sideview mirrors, power bucket seats, rear window defroster and targa roof Safety and security equipment includes dual front air bags and anti-lock brakes along with Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR) By 1992, the fourth-generation Corvette had been around since 1983 (introduced as a 1984 model). While it had been tweaked inside, the outside looked much the same as it had over the previous 10 years. What was new for 92 was under the hood, a LT1 V-8 packing 300 horsepower and 330 lbs-ft of torque. Now, we have an almost 30-year-old Corvette with less than 26,000 miles on it here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. This model was made in GM s Bowling Green, Kentucky factory in December 1991. Dressed in Bright Red (code 81U), the car s paint and trim are in overall very good order, with very minor blemishes visible on the hood and driver s left rear corner near the hatch glass. The body is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the cargo area is tidy, the battery looks good while the body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the rest of the body. Even the courtesy lights under the hood still shine while the hood is opened. This car rolls on period correct Goodyear Eagle GS-C tires, size 275/40ZR17 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted on a factory alloy wheel. The wheels and tires are all in good order. For the 1992 model year, Chevy upped the ante over the previous L98 engine. The new LT1 engine packed 300 horses, an increase of 50 horses over the L98. The LT1 featured reverse-flow cooling (the heads were cooled before the block), and high-compression-ratio pistons, which allowed for a higher compression ratio of 10.5:1, a new camshaft profile, free-flowing cylinder heads and computer-controlled ignition timing. The was a low-restriction exhaust system with a two-piece convertor. A new distributor was also debuted, called Optispark, which was driven directly off of the front of the camshaft and mounted in front of the timing cover, just above the crankshaft and harmonic balancer. Backing this motor is GM s 4L60 four-speed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, cruise control, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power locks, power sideview mirrors, power bucket seats and rear window defroster. Safety and security equipment included dual front air bags and anti-lock brakes (ABS). Also new for 1992 was Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR), a form of traction control that utilized the Corvettes brakes, spark retard, and throttle close-down to prevent excessive rear wheel spin and possible loss of control. The traction control device could be switched off if desired. Inside, the car has a red leather interior (code 733). The bucket seats are in overall very good order, as is the matching carpet. The instrument panel, with its hybrid analog-digital setup, and the inner door panels are all in very good order. The center console, shift lever and handbrake (on the driver s side) are all in similar condition. A Delco-Bose AM/FM stereo completes the interior. Competition to this Corvette in 1992 included Acura s NSX, Aston Martin s Virage, BMW s 850i, Dodge s Stealth R/T Turbo, Ferrari s 348TB, Mercedes-Benz s 500 SL, Mitsubishi s 3000GT, Nissan s 300ZX Turbo, Porsche s 928 and Toyota s Supra.
