1988 Chevrolet Corvette 35th Anniversary

1988 Chevrolet Corvette 35th Anniversary

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 very nice example of a 1988 Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition. With a mere 27,060 original miles, this car retains all of its original parts and paint. The electronic fuel injection feeding fuel very nicely, the top side is very tight with paint showing beautifully. The car was rarely out in the rain during this one person ownership and has been stored in a garage.

Exterior
White like the wind driven snow, covers this car's exterior and is in showroom condition showing very slight aging. A removable smoked glass roof panel is seen on top. Badging is all correct, as well as working hidden headlights. Standard saw blade body matching white wheels are noted on all 4 corners and there is no curbing marks on these.

Interior
Near perfect black carpet floods the floors, and the back trunk area, and it is a deep, deep black, in very good condition. White leather buckets showing as original and have minimal wear with the usual fold lines that come with use. These buckets contain controls for the power activation of them within the bolsters of the seats and flank a black center console/white topped storage unit. This also houses the controls for power windows, and exterior mirrors, 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 all digital cluster of gauges in colorful form all working like new are fronted by a white rimmed steering wheel.

Drivetrain
The stout 350ci V8 L98 small block is topped by electronic fuel injection and is backed by a 700 R4 - speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly. The engine is very clean and has little corrosion and nice shiny hoses and belts.

Undercarriage
Typical of a low, low mileage car no rust, structurally sound, C4 suspension is clean, and frame is very sound. Power disc brakes are all around. Noted are Bilstein shocks, and the sport handling package.

Drive-Ability
Still showroom condition, everything worked as new, and this car ran like a champ and handled like it was on rails. The interior seats are very comfortable.

I dare you to try to find another 35th Anniversary Corvette with mileage as low as this car, with paint as nice as this car, and with an interior as sweet as this car. A real celebration in total style of the sporty car Harley Earl thought up 35 years ago. And the legend continues…Happy Anniversary!!
