The 1980s were a tough time for performance cars, smog and emissions tests combined with the increasing rate of fuel prices meant that performance had reached an all time low. The most powerful engines in muscle and sports cars could barely muster 200hp. When Chevrolet introduced the all new C4 Corvette in 1984, the company chose to emphasis handling and agility over sheer horsepower. The new design represented a clean break from the C3 generation with sleek new styling and a completely new chassis and suspension. With all independent suspension highlighted by a new lightweight transverse fiberglass mono-leaf spring that was significantly lighter than the older coil springs. Also new was a “uniframe” that consisted of a traditional perimeter frame with the door posts, windshield and rear floor pan all integrated into a single piece.
This 1995 example is one of the last C4's to roll of the Bowling Green production line. Featuring a whole hosts of upgrades over the earlier cars, this Corvette is much more advanced. The 350 v8 has been upgraded with the LT1 – LS1 coil conversion kit. The car runs and shifts very well.
This Corvette comes with receipts for over $3,800 for the new interior consisting of seats, carpet and door panels that were professionally installed and shows very well. The rec exterior shows well over the red and black interrior. Cosmetically, this car stands tall and is very presentable. The Corvette has also had the heads professionally redone. This affordable 'Vette is turn key ready for the next owner.
