For Sale: 1988 Chevrolet Corvette in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1988 Chevrolet Corvette is a low-mileage coupe that's been exceptionally preserved while also being given the right upgrades where it counts the most. That means sleek paint, mirror-like wheels, a terrific-looking interior, cold-blowing air conditioning, and fuel-injected V8 power. And it's all offered for an exceptional price.

Dark Red Metallic is a great color to have on this Corvette. It provides the flair of red but with a darker tone of sophistication. This shows all the right signs of being the original application, and the smooth shine goes well with the nice body panels on a car that has averaged only about 1,100 miles annually. And this darker red goes great with the darker elements of the car. On a C4 like this, the black glass roof panel on top and the dark rub strip that surrounds the whole 'Vette are crisp and dark, so they look fantastic against the paintwork. And really, the whole mid-C4 appearance is arguably the best of the bunch. It combines original elements like the full rotation headlights and concave rear styling with newer features like the top-mounted center brake light. Plus, C7-style polished alloys and wide exhaust tips add to the sporty style and individuality we love in a Corvette.

Because we love the look of darkness against the deep red paint, you'll love taking out the targa top to show off the full black interior. Low mileage means little seat time, and so the leather upholstery looks exceptional. The dual-spoke steering wheel was purposely designed to give you a commanding view of the unique instrument cluster. The digital gauges were state-of-the-art when they were introduced, and so it's a signature piece that everyone looks for today. That's why it's essential to have it looking as good as this one. As you gaze across the entire interior, there is a time capsule style for most of the components, including the controls for the power seats, power windows, and power locks. And while the air conditioning looks factory, it was recently serviced and now blows cold with modern R134a refrigerant. We like the upgrade to an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth because it means modern driving music and convenience. But purists will also be happy to know a stock unit comes with the sale, too.

Since the interior and exterior look so good, they made sure the engine bay was ready to be displayed, too. Just like the rest of the car, it has a clean and tidy style with just the right touches of individual flair. The L98 350 cubic-inch V8 is another great mid-cycle Corvette feature where you have a hardy and more powerful motor than the earlier cross-fire L83 units. It fires up nicely and runs like a well-respected classic. Plus, with a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, cruise control, and a fully independent sports suspension, this Corvette has all the right features to be a great weekend getaway machine - both for the interstates and the back roads.

The sale comes complete with nice documents like the owner's manual, a reproduction window sticker, a reproduction buildsheet, service manuals, and maintenance records. This is the preserved C4 that also has the right upgrades that will make you want to add to the low odometer every weekend. Call today!!!
