When Corvettes come by our inventory, they don’t stick around for long. Chalk that down to the sheer adoration that America’s sweetheart sports car enjoys by the public. We’ve told and retold the Corvette story countless times, so what you need to know is that this 1987 Chevrolet Corvette is from the C4, or fourth generation, and comes to you with 47,500 miles already covered. That’s basically baby steps, as Corvettes can easily rack up six figures with the right maintenance. Read on to find out why you should be this car’s next owner.
The C4’s design saw a revolutionary change from the language of the C3. Debuted in 1983, crisp-edged lines perfectly captured the essence of the Eighties; it’s not hard to visualize one of these cars cruising down the highway at sunset, with synthwave playing in the background. This 1987 Chevrolet Corvette takes the whole Eighties vibe further with its silver and white two-tone paint job plus chrome custom wheels that reportedly wear brand new tires. The requisite badging, including Chevrolet crest, Z51 and L.98 emblems are all in place, as is a glass roof. The silver and gray interior further accentuates the whole Eighties vibe, with the digital dash, trip computer and general design cues. Seating two occupants, you get air conditioning, power windows, power mirrors, and cruise control. Entertainment options have been modernized by a Kenwood Excelon head unit that can handle CDs, Satellite Radio, USB and AUX options with remote control, plus a reportedly new amplifier.
This 1987 Chevrolet Corvette packs a 350ci L98 V8 as witnessed by the badging, and also comes with the Z51 performance and handling package. The engine is rated for 240hp and 345lb-ft as a plaque inside the cabin next to the gear shifter informs the occupants, however this car has reportedly received top end upgrades, and should make more power. Drive goes to the rear wheels via a rare Doug Nash 4+3 manual gearbox with an automatic overdrive on the top three gears. This gearbox was a veritable curio in its day and remains so.
