1986 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
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 of 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
For Consignment we offer a 1986 version of the America's sports
car. A 350ci V8 engine, and a very nicely preserved two-tone gray
paint, performance handling, and an improved fuel injection system
are just a few of the upgrades included for this year.
All clean bright two-tone light and dark gray fiberglass in good
condition. Some dulling in the paint and some areas of overspray,
but overall well preserved. Dual electric controlled sport mirrors,
and the removable roof has gone missing. 16 inch 5 spoke wheels are
on all 4 corners.
Gray checkered broadcloth inserts with darker gray clear bolsters
in bucket form grace the inside of this Vette. The driver's seat
has some staining. A digital driver information system is seen on
the square design dash, as well as the 4-speed automatic
transmission shifter in the console. The seats flank a console
glovebox and various power option controls such as power windows,
and power steering and a key fob remote access button will get you
into the rear storage area that has enough room to take the bags
for a long trip. Black carpeting appears is newer and replaced the
original and shows slight fading to blue under the green house
style rear glass. Door panels are black vinyl and have a peppering
of black inserts to add contrast to their style. An aftermarket
Kenwood AM/FM/CD player has been neatly inserted into the dash.
A 350ci V8 with electronic fuel injection can be viewed within an
original engine bay with the flip of the hood. All clean under here
with slight corrosion. Bolted on back is the 4-speed automatic
transmission. Keeping everything cool is an all electric fan
Reasonably clean and rust free. C4 suspension is seen which
includes a posi trac rear, and fiberglass mono leaf spring setup is
on the front and rear.
Started right up and the digital dash came to life with all the
stats. Drives very smoothly, has plenty of power, and the no roof
situation allows plenty of airflow. Solid handling, and we are
poised to eat our competition. Noted is that the A/C blows
Overall a clean Corvette all around. A 350ci engine which runs well
and starts quickly. Nice 2 tone gray paint, missing the targa roof.
All correct badging, and cloth interior.
