1991 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
In 1991 Chevrolet created an identity crisis with the C4 model
version. That crisis fueled by the standard C4 Coupe which this car
IS vs the C4 ZR-1 high performance version that was virtually
double the price, which this car IS NOT. Problem is there are very
few visual differences between the two models with the price being
the biggest difference!
This 1991 example, a C4 Coupe originally with an LT-1 Engine has
had an engine change. Gone is the problematic fuel injection and
replaced by a 1981 Block, which was bored over (.30) and other
modifications which are described under Drivetrain. A removable top
and an interesting repaint are among some of the highlights of this
The fiberglass unibody painted in deep black with multi spectrum
large metal flake covers the entire car. Paint is in good
condition. The large glass hatchback shows no cracks or chips, as
does the rest of the glass. 5-spoke Americans Racing mag wheels are
on all 4 corners. Silver inserts in the hood venting, as well as
silver highlight painting on the hood scoop add contrast to this
menacing car. Automatic flip around hidden headlights reveal
themselves when light knob is pulled. Also new for 1991 were square
inserts for taillights which are positioned under a matching
painted rear spoiler.
Black leather bucket seats, which are in good condition, show the
wear only time can create. Vinyl over carpet and plastic control
housing is seen on the door panels and handles. These surfaces show
wear. Black vinyl and plastic cover a center console, and have an
aftermarket pioneer stereo system, as well as airflow controls
installed. An orange digital screen in the center of the dash shows
MPH, as well as mileage which is clocked at 117,243 miles.
As mentioned earlier, this car has had the engine replaced. Not a
shabby replacement it includes a 1981 4-bolt main bored .030 over
making it a 355ci. There is a Comp Cam and new aluminum heads. 780
cfm double pumper, Hooker Headers and Flow Master mufflers. A
2.59:1 differential transfers power to the rear wheels.
This 1991 Corvette shows nicely and has definitely been driven and
enjoyed. Interesting repaint, as well as a better performing engine
drop in, make this car a unique Vette. No, there are not matching
numbers, and original everything, but a custom driver that still
performs, and is within a reachable budget.
