Vehicle Description

1985 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

Chevrolet has been pumping out Corvettes for 66 years, building about 1.5 million of them since 1953. That makes the 'Vette one of the most popular sports cars of all time. First- and second-generation Corvettes were one of the first true collectible cars of the modern era, and collecting Corvettes remains a global phenomenon. More than just another two-seat sports car, the Vette is an American icon. There's a good reason it's often referred to as America's sports car.

For Consignment we offer the 1985 version of America's sports car. A powerful 350ci L98 V8 engine, and mostly original car for the taking. A targa roof optioned car with the Z51 package, all wrapped in Light Bronze, and low (36,749) original miles.

Exterior
All clean Light Bronze fiberglass in good condition. Some slight difference in the paint between the melamine front bumper and body. Dual electric controlled sport mirrors, and a smoked glass targa lift off roof panel is seen. This has a crack in the original roof; however, the consigner is providing a new targa roof for this car. Black trimmings help breakup the bronze on this hidden headlight car. On back the large greenhouse glass cargo area emits from the rear roll bar/B pillar. The flat back with dual round taillights has a nice decal black stripe on the back trunk deck just above. 16-inch aluminum wheels and radials are bolted on all 4 corners.

Interior
Metallic Bronze leather high back buckets are in the gold carpeted passenger compartment. These seats show some cracking and wear not unlike well aged leather. They have a centrally located power-controlled toggle for infinite adjustment of the seats. A digital driver information system is seen on the curvaceous dash, as well as the automatic transmission shifter that offers overdrive. Power windows, and power steering as well as a key fob remote access button will get you into the rear storage area that has enough room to house the removable top. All is clean for the digital dash and surfaces inside the cockpit.

Drivetrain
An original 350ci L98 V8 can be viewed within a clean engine bay with the flip of the hood. It has tuned port EFI, and a 4-speed automatic on back. Slight corrosion is seen on a few surfaces but overall looking good.

Undercarriage
Very clean and rust free and has been recently given the once over. A C4 suspension is seen, in fiberglass mono leaf spring suspension is on the front and rear. This car is equipped with a posi-trac rear and has the Z51 handling package. Power disc brakes for all 4 corners.

Drive-Ability
Runs great, handled the test track with ease, and all functions were in working order during my test drive.

Overall a clean Corvette that the consigner has gotten good use of. A quick starter, smooth shifter, and plenty of power keep true to the 'Vette legacy of America's Sports Car. Bathed in Light Bronze, and a truly mid 80's interior with the shiny leather bronze seats.
