1986 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
1986 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
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 we offer a 1986 version of the America's sports car. A 350ci V8 engine, and a very nicely preserved two-tone gray paint, performance handling, and an improved fuel injection system are just a few of the upgrades included for this year.
All clean bright two-tone light and dark gray fiberglass in good condition. Some dulling in the paint and some areas of overspray, but overall well preserved. Dual electric controlled sport mirrors, and the removable roof has gone missing. 16 inch 5 spoke wheels are on all 4 corners.
Gray checkered broadcloth inserts with darker gray clear bolsters in bucket form grace the inside of this Vette. The driver's seat has some staining. A digital driver information system is seen on the square design dash, as well as the 4-speed automatic transmission shifter in the console. The seats flank a console glovebox and various power option controls such as power windows, and power steering and a key fob remote access button will get you into the rear storage area that has enough room to take the bags for a long trip. Black carpeting appears is newer and replaced the original and shows slight fading to blue under the green house style rear glass. Door panels are black vinyl and have a peppering of black inserts to add contrast to their style. An aftermarket Kenwood AM/FM/CD player has been neatly inserted into the dash.
A 350ci V8 with electronic fuel injection can be viewed within an original engine bay with the flip of the hood. All clean under here with slight corrosion. Bolted on back is the 4-speed automatic transmission. Keeping everything cool is an all electric fan cooling system.
Reasonably clean and rust free. C4 suspension is seen which includes a posi trac rear, and fiberglass mono leaf spring setup is on the front and rear.
Started right up and the digital dash came to life with all the stats. Drives very smoothly, has plenty of power, and the no roof situation allows plenty of airflow. Solid handling, and we are poised to eat our competition. Noted is that the A/C blows warm.
Overall a clean Corvette all around. A 350ci engine which runs well and starts quickly. Nice 2 tone gray paint, missing the targa roof. All correct badging, and cloth interior.
