Don't purchase a 1992 Corvette and squirrel it away in a warehouse
hoping it will make you wealthy. If you want to collect something
that really might make a fortune someday, try coins, Hummel's, or
hood ornaments, or a limited run of "the Artist Formerly Known As
Prince" plates. This car was made to be driven. It would be a shame
to own it and have it any other way.
Imagine, someday opening the door to a Classic from 1992 which
happens to be a Chevrolet Corvette. Sporting a mere 23,683 actual
miles on the body and draped in beautiful black this fiberglass
piece of road sculpture sucks you inside. As you take it all in it
starts up and you are mesmerized by the roar of the V8 which is a
very worked over LT4 502hp dyno proven engine. With all the work
performed by Corvette Paramedics over the course of 4 years and to
the tune of $50,000 we now have a C4 'Vette with very nice comfy
tan and black leather interior that nearly puts you to sleep, when
suddenly you are awakened by a snap of your neck, and your right
foot is to the floor, and you are speeding forward. That someday
could be as soon as today, if you contact one of our car
specialists, or walk into our overwhelming mall, and hop in...you
All pristine black covers all the fiberglass, which remains in good
shape. A few scrapes are noted on the lower body but otherwise the
paint is looking beautiful. A clamshell hood and black removable
targa top are just the basics. Further investigation reveals hidden
headlights, body matching integrated bumpers front and rear, and
aerodynamic straight fiberglass panels with well minded gaps
throughout. Simple badging, and round inset tail lights with dual
dual horizontal chrome tipped exhaust are seen on the rear of the
car and pop up headlights in full working glory protrude upward on
the nose when headlights are turned on. 17-inch shiny Centerline
wheels wrapped in nicely preserved radials adorn each corner.
The dream continues with black leather covered high back buckets
that have tan panel inserts. While being grabbed by this leather,
use the side and console controls to electronically put you exactly
where you want to grab the wheel, shifter, and press the
accelerator to start your drive to hyperdrive speed. A smooth black
center console races forward to the dash, and houses some storage,
seat controls, and the shift lever. Moving up into the center of
the dash is an AM/FM/Cassette/CD changer capable JVC radio, temp
and airflow controls, all push button. This panel makes a sharp
left in an upward curve and melts into the analog cascade of orange
numbered and lettered gauges, which huddle around a central
vertical rectangular orange LCD readout for speed, and mileage.
Nice clean tan carpet with black Corvette embroidered mats covers
the floors and storage area and shows little fading overall in the
This is where things get juicy folks. As the story goes, the owner
of Corvette Paramedics was lucky enough to come into a stockpile of
LT4 V8 engines and our consignor was fortunate enough to purchase
one of the rare mills. Let me catch my breath and get ready for
some tech to be thrown at you, and awayyyyy we go...A former LT4
5.7L V8 now is displacing a 383ci of power thanks in part to a
forged Eagle crankshaft, Eagle rods and Diamond pistons. The block
has been fitted with ported LT4 cylinder heads, a custom ground
Comp Cams roller camshaft, and Comp Cams roller rockers. Going
further into this killer mill we note a port matched intake
manifold and FAST XFI electronic fuel injection. If that wasenough
of a power boost for you, a Procharger D1SC has been bolted on to
provide an even further kick in the shorts. Bolted to the back is a
700R4 4-speed automatic with a 3,200rpm stall converter that sends
power back to a limited slip 2.59 geared rear axle.
Looking underneath, just as nice as the topside, with no rust,
slight patina, and very clean, even devoid of road dirt! A solid
construction with extra stiffness to carve those curves is noted.
Independent coil springs for the front, and a 5 link transverse
leaf spring rear suspension is seen as are 4 wheel power disc
brakes all around. Plenty of lightweight materials have been
utilized for this suspension and underside mechanicals, all for
more power from that killer V8 upfront. Melrose headers are on for
the big exhale and send spent fossils rearward through a pair of
Random Technology high flow converters before passing through a
stainless Corsa muffler set and piping.
A quick starter and hopping inside those leather seats just grab
you. After achieving a perfect driving position, it was off to the
test track where she performed just beautifully, with rocket-like
acceleration, handling on rails, and quick stopping. Steering was
tight, and it provided a smooth ride at cruising speed. My crack
decoder wasn't up to the test track trip with me, but he did note a
bit of blue smoke seen from the tail pipes during start up.
We take in a lot of 90's era Corvettes here at the Classic Auto
Mall, some have been hermetically sealed in a bubble while others
have been beaten hard and put away wet. Typically, they were bought
by individuals who found success, and wanted a powerful status car
they could fool around with, punch the gas, put down some rubber,
and move on to another vehicle. This car could be described as a 1
of a kind favorite toy for its owner, who painstakingly took care
of all aspects of the upgrades and maintenance that come with a
sports car from the early 90's. Used but not abused, and all very
nice and very fast... isn't it your time to own a Corvette?
