Here's a classic 1987 Chevrolet Corvette with nice colors, original
V8 power, and a loaded A/C interior. So yea, every once in a while
you can find a car that gets you into the entry-level of the
classic car world, and yet, still leave you completely
Burgundy is a great color to have on this car. It provides the flair of red but with a darker tone of sophistication. Plus, it goes great with the darker elements of the car. On a C4 like this, the black glass roof panel, side & tinted rear glass, dark rub strip that surrounds the whole 'Vette are all so crisp and dark that they look fantastic against the burgundy. 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. And those factory alloy wheels become more distinctive with every year this coupe journeys further into classic status.
When developing the C4, GM poured every bit of tech they could dream up into the 'Vette. Today it makes for a feature-filled inside that also has a retro-cool feeling. The gray leather interior is anchored by a pair of power adjustable seats that help you find that perfect driving position. This is a highly original interior, so you find wear in the high traffic spots, but for the money you save, it gives you the option to choose preservation or restoration. The two-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. But more than just the gauges, as you gaze across the entire interior, everything looks quite correct. This includes the controls for the power windows, power locks, and even the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input doesn't look out of place. The factory air conditioning is still blowing cold, so this is perfect for taking out the targa roof and still staying cool while open to the world.
One of your favorite parts of owing this 'Vette will be opening the hood, because the C4 has that cool racecar-like appearance as nearly the whole front section tilts forward. And when you do that, you get an excellent view at the competition-worthy L98 350 cubic-inch V8. While the fuel-injected small block is one of those perfect motors for tuning, this numbers-matching example remains refreshingly original and unmolested. And that's exactly the kind of powerplant you want in such a well-presented sports car. 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.
Complete with owner's manual, rarely do you find such an affordable deal on an American icon that's ready to run right now. That's why you know you need to hurry. Call today!!!
