For Sale: 1987 Chevrolet Corvette in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1987 Chevrolet Corvette is quite stock inside and out. That makes for a distinct low-mileage convertible. But the V8 has been given a few upgrades to remind you that a classic like this is also meant to be driven.

We like it when the appeal of a Corvette is as clear to see as black and white. This tasteful color combo starts with a body done in a timelessly attractive white. It shows all signs of being the factory application, and that goes with the low mileage (averaging about 1,400 miles annually) to give you the impression of a car that has been treated with respect over the years. These earlier C4s have the black trim line that fully encircles the car, and this distinct feature joins the black convertible top for a subtle two-tone style. Everything shows well and fits well, but the overall impression reinforces the underlying theme that this is a classic made to be driven on a whim. So you're looking at a well-priced drop-top that lets you enjoy it to the fullest.

The graphite gray interior carries a similar dark tone to the black, and so you have an appealing contrast to the exterior white with the roof on or off. Low mileage means less seat time, and the supple leather sport seats power adjust to provide the kind of comfort that could make some modern interiors jealous. This is built with the driver in mind with a sporty dual-spoke steering wheel, a tilt/telescopic steering column, and an informative digital gauge cluster. While sporty, the C4 Corvettes are also known for being luxurious. This includes amenities like power windows, power locks, and Bose AM/FM/cassette stereo. Even the factory air conditioning is still in place, and now it's blowing cold with modern R134a. So this is ideal for taking down the roof at any time and staying cool while open to the world.

A mainstay of the Corvette is a powerful V8, and this one has some fun with the legend by adding the classic Corvette cursive script valve covers that belong on a first-gen Vette. But this 5.7-liter L98 motor is a far more modern powerhouse. It's a fuel-injected setup with 1987-correct aluminum heads. Plus, this has some nice updates like an MSD ignition and likely a TPiS throttle body. There's even an upgraded exhaust to give you a touch more of that terrific V8 tone. It's this mix of power and comfort that makes this an excellent grand touring machine. The four-speed automatic transmission has highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, you have four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS, power steering, cruise control, and a fully independent suspension.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a cool-looking true classic C4 drop-top. It also has a value price that can let you personalize this Corvette, including unlocking more power from the hardy V8. That's why the appeal of this one is as clear as black and white. Call today!!!
