1989 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
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 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, a very nice example of a 1989 Corvette in
convertible form. Bathed in black with a black canvas convertible
top and 350 cubes awaiting your command to fire up. Now is your
chance to get into the classic car game and you are starting near
the top with this Classic Corvette from the late 80's.
Black like midnight, bathes the fiberglass sculpted exterior.
Badging is all correct, as well as working hidden headlights. Black
plastic trimming wraps entirely around this car at the midline and
keeps with the all ebony theme. A black canvas convertible top
gives you the ability to go topless or drive in the rain with it up
and a body matching black hardtop is also included for a more
coupe-like drive. A nice fiberglass rear top covering hides the top
when in the down position. On the back are the round taillights
deeply inset within the neoprene rear bumper and rear roll pan.
Quad exhaust tips are showing off at the bottom of this bumper. 5
spoke satin finish wheels in 17 and 18 inch are noted on all on the
front and rear respectively and there are no curbing marks on
Near perfect gray carpet floods the floors and the back trunk area,
and also is in very good condition. Gray leather buckets, showing
as original, have minimal wear with the usual fold lines that come
with use. These buckets flank a black and gray center console/gray
topped storage unit with hidden power seat controls in a cubby
under the crossed flags plate. This console also houses the
controls for power windows, and exterior mirrors, shift lever for
the automatic transmission, climate control, aftermarket AM/FM/CD,
and a data center with a screen to display information regarding
gas mileage, service warnings and other key components of the car.
An all digital cluster of gauges in colorful form all working like
new are fronted by a black rimmed rally style steering wheel.
The stout 350ci V8 small block is topped by tuned port electronic
fuel injection and is backed by a 700 R4 4-speed automatic
transmission that shifts smoothly with a 2.59 geared rear axle on
the back. The engine is very clean and has little corrosion and
nice shiny hoses and belts along with some tinted silver cast
aluminum valve coverings. Save for a little bit of road dirt on the
underside of the wheel wells, it's all clean under this hood.
C4 suspension is clean, showing a slight patina on the aluminum
cast suspension. The frame and floor pans are all very sound. Power
disc brakes are on all 4's.
A quick starter and good runner this car presented with no
problems. Sit back and feel the pressure as you are pushed into
your seat and let the wind blow through your hair. A very stout
runner and still a looker 33 years later
We are in the game here with a nice looking and well cared for
Vette. A real celebration in the total style of the sporty car
Harley Earl thought up 36 years earlier. And the legend
continues...into your driveway.
