1985 was the second year for the C4 Corvette, and little did this car know that C4s would be produced for another decade! Though some facelifts occurred along the way, the C4 Corvette was produced from 1984 until 1996. Upon its introduction in 1984, the C4 brought both praise and criticism as it was the first full redesign of the Corvette in a long while. Nowadays, the C4 still incites controversy among enthusiasts, but there is no denying that it retains that 'Corvette feeling.'
This example is a well-preserved, nice quality daily driver that has received maintenance and upgrades in all of the right places. The paint is lustrous and attractive and shows well due to being a recent repaint. Though it appears to have been repainted in the original color, it has been painted solid silver rather than the original silver/gray two-tone. A previous owner opted to install newer C5 Corvette wheels in place of the original “sawblades;” a tasteful upgrade that gives the car a sportier look. The body is clean, straight, and sure to turn some heads in this eye-catching silver!
The interior is in excellent original condition with the exception of the seats, which have been recovered in high-quality, durable marine vinyl. Because this is a targa top Corvette, no doubt the marine vinyl seats will be an added bonus for anyone looking to have the top off on a regular basis! And, believe it or not, the digital dash is working exactly as it should be. You never see these digital readouts working correctly, but like the rest of the car shows, this car must have been maintained meticulously for everything to be this clean and this functional.
Under the hood is the original engine which has a few light upgrades and could be described as a mild build. Overall, it looks original and cleans up decently. This car runs and with a turn of the key sounds incredible thanks to a mild cam, new exhaust and tune. Without a doubt, it is definitely faster than a stock 1985 Corvette! All recent maintenance work has been performed by Midnite Auto LLC in Mooresville, NC. Additionally, this car has option FE7 High-Performance Suspension as well as the Z51 Performance Package. Other fun features include side mirror defoggers and a 4+3 manual transmission with overdrive.
If you're looking for a fun weekend cruiser or a classic Corvette to take to the next level, this is the car for you! It would be an excellent candidate for a daily as-is, or with a little work an excellent choice for a show car.
