1991 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1991 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Myron E. Scott went to work for Chevrolet in 1937, as an assistant director for the Public Relations department, where he was responsible for photography of new cars, designing of press kits, graphics, and special events. He was also known for being the creator of the All-American Soap Box Derby. After winning a contest with 300 submissions, Myron thought the name Corvette rolled off the tongue well and thought a tie to the fast strike ships called "Corvettes" from World War II would appeal to the American men, many who had served. This would go on to form the foundation for the nautical names that would be applied to Corvettes and concepts such as the Mako Shark and Sting Ray (later to be used as Stingray).
For consignment a nice example of a 1991 Convertible Corvette. With a mere 43,801 original miles, this car retains most of its original parts and paint. The tuned port fuel injectors are in working condition. The car was never out in the rain during his ownership and has been stored in a garage.
Bright red covers this car's exterior and is in good condition showing little aging. A very nice white canvas convertible top moves up and down with the flick of a switch and has a clear rear plastic window. Badging is all correct, as well as working hidden headlights. Standard saw blade polished chrome wheels are noted on all 4 corners.
Near perfect deep red carpet floods the floors, and the back trunk area, and it is a deep, deep red, in very good condition. Red leather buckets showing as original and have slight wear with the usual fold lines that come with use, flank a black center console/storage unit. This also houses the shift lever for the automatic transmission, climate control, AM/FM Cassette, and a data center with a screen to display information regarding gas mileage, service warnings and other key components of the car. An analog cluster of gauges flank an orange LCD display which shows mileage, speed, and doubles as a gas gauge. Controls for power windows, power mirrors, and cruise control are also noted, but have now migrated to the door panels.
The stout 350ci V8 L98 small block is topped by tuned port fuel injection and is backed by a 700 R4 4-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly. The engine is very clean and has little corrosion and nice shiny hoses and belts.
Typical of an 43,940 mile car mile no rust, structurally sound, suspension is clean, and frame is very sound.
Atypical of a 1991 model year car, it is in such good condition for the mileage. Obviously, this car was cared for, and well-kept while not in use. Definitely could be used as an everyday driver, giving the potential buyer has a long way to go to use up the life left in this Corvette Convertible.
