For Sale: 1990 Chevrolet Corvette in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

A value-priced bright red 1990 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is instantly attractive. But the desire here goes much further than affordability. It's a fun driver's car with extra details like the side-exit exhaust and racing stripes. Plus, you control the fuel-injected V8 with the ultra-desirable six-speed. So it's time to have some drop-top classic Vette fun.


We like the earlier C4 Corvette design, and this was the last year for it. It was known for its wedge shape amplified by low-slung details like the pop-up headlights. And the factory-correct Bright Red was resprayed later in life so that it can show off this profile with a vibrant style. This example really uses the car's full style to its advantage. For example, the upgraded black racing stripe not only outlines the double-hump power dome hood, but it also coordinates nicely with the waistline trim that encircles the full car. And there are other cool blackout additions, like the torque thrust wheels and side pipe style rocker trim. Add in a well-fitting black roof, and this Corvette has the look of a classic two-tone.


The color theme continues inside with plenty of red and black. It remains highly stock with unique pieces, like the lighted doors, an airbag sports steering wheel (its first year), and a nice mix of analog and digital gauges. Plus, this is loaded with everything you want, including power windows, power locks, power steering, a premium AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo from Bose, cruise control, and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And best of all it feels like a terrific driver's car. You know it from details like the sport seats that power adjusts for the ideal position and the FX3 ride selection system. And the bar in the rear adds bracing while also giving you cool race-style roll hoops. Also, don't forget to check out the build tag that tells us this was born with a stick shift in the center console!


The classic L98 350 cubic-inch V8 was even upgraded to the color theme with a dark style and upgraded red accents. But what you'll really like about the motor is the overall tidy style that tells you that it has been properly maintained over the years. So while it's unknown if the odometer reflects the full actual mileage, the fuel-injected motor continues to fire up and run with an eagerness that lets you know this is a car built for driving. After all, this gives you the best in control with a fully independent suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the desirable six-speed. We also bet you noticed those side pipes. They are actually routed through much of the traditional exhaust but exit in front of the era wheels. So you still get a nice growl while retaining more stock components.


This is the sleek red Corvette with the right driver-ready upgrades and overall driver-ready style. So if you love a bold drop-top that loves the back roads, call today!
