Nothing is cooler than a fuel-injected Corvette convertible!
Restored in 1983 by Clark Shoaf, this L84 is a prime example of a
quality investment car that can be driven and enjoyed. Dressed in
beautiful Daytona Blue with Saddle interior, it still wears its
factory original colors. With only minor patina on the hood, this
car looks like it was restored only a few short years ago.
Powered by its factory 327ci V8 producing 360 horsepower, this Fuelie was the most powerful Corvette offered in 1963. The engine is paired to the correct Rochester Fuel injection system, Part # 7017375. Unusually optioned with non-power steering/brakes, power windows and leather seats, this car was meant to be a combination of all go with minimal weight additions.
Although this Corvette is presented with history going back to only 1983, our review of the numbers and history of this car suggests you will be making a sound purchase. You will only be more surprised when you see the car in person. With its strong lines and beautiful interior this is a great buy for anyone seeking a Fuel Injected Convertible. We believe the value of the first year C2 with this option package is a great investment that will continue to grow in value and desirability.
