This 1987 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is the perfect drop-top
classic for the right person. After all, the triple-blue style is
going to make this one stand out a bit more in a crowd. And the
fuel-injected V8 power, overdrive transmission, and sports
suspension make for a terrific cruiser. So you need to love driving
your classic and being seen doing it to really understand the
appeal of this convertible.
Red and black Corvettes seem to be the expectation for most people.
We love them, too, because it makes a mean sports car look even
meaner. But this one is for someone who wants a nice cruiser kind
of distinct. The factory-correct Medium Blue Metallic reminds us of
the colors like Jewel Blue and Nassau Blue in the early generation
Corvettes. So this one feels like a true classic. But while those
were all done up in chrome, this has a touch of contemporary where
a respray even included the formerly black waistline trim. The
finish is driver-quality, and that means it's the kind of car that
you'll drive on a whim without getting nervous. It's part of an
overall package that's right for real drivers. And details like the
good convertible top and the confident action of the doors are
where you're reminded that this is a low-mileage classic.
The dark blue convertible top goes well with the exterior paint,
and beneath it is a full blue interior. So while there are plenty
of people who love a rare triple-black classic, there are even
fewer people who ever get to see the paint, roof, and interior
coordinate for a triple blue car! A C4 Corvette like this is a
great cruiser for the way it gives you a long list of desirable
features. It includes power windows, power locks, and an
AM/FM/cassette stereo with Bose speakers. The factory air
conditioning has been upgraded to R134a, but it will need servicing
to blow cold again. Your leather bucket seat has terrific
bolstering and power adjusts to your ideal driving position. And
the tilt/telescoping steering column gives you a clear view of the
retro-cool full digital gauge package. There was even a roll hoop
added for extra safety and rigidity.
Part of what really makes this a solid driver is what's under the
hood. The 350 cubic-inch L98 fuel-injected V8 is a great all-around
powerhouse for plenty of horsepower and desirable get-up-and-go
torque. It only gets better in this one that has had over $4k in
head work invested within the last year. So it's a string-running
V8 at the heart of a true sports cruiser. The four-speed automatic
transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and cruise control make
this convertible a true grand touring machine. And the fully
independent suspension, new sport tires, and four-wheel power disc
brakes mean it's fun on your favorite back roads, too.
Complete with maintenance records, this is the distinct Corvette
for those who like a classic they can really drive. Call now!
