1987 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1987 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Zora Arkus-Duntov, (December 25, 1909 – April 21, 1996), was a Belgian-born American engineer whose work on the Chevrolet Corvette earned him the nickname "Father of the Corvette". He is sometimes erroneously referred to as the inventor of the Corvette, whereas that title belongs to Harley Earl. He was also a successful racing driver, taking class victories in 1954 and 1955 24 Heures du Mans.
For consignment, a nice example of a 1987 convertible Corvette. This one comes with the aux. hardtop, digital dash, and has plenty of new parts recently put on..full speed ahead kids!
Bright Red drapes the fiberglass panels that now have '91-'96 style format and rear bumpers with side panels. No more urethane bumpers to fade and crack! This Corvette comes with the lowest angle windshield rake to this date. The body styling was basically a preview to what was to come for the ZR1 model which was delayed until 1990. Hidden headlights, (now upgraded to halogen), a body matching bright red belt line molding, a beautiful and new frame and canvas black convertible top that hides itself under a plastic molded tonneau, and also, a very sexy removable hardtop for the coupe-like driving experience with added safety. A rear spoiler hangs just above the flat rear panel that houses the rounded corner square taillights deeply inset into this panel. Also, the added feature of the upswing doors or Lambo Doors, are now on for easy access and egress. Standard turbine style 17-inch star pattern alloy wheels are on all 4 corners and bringing up the rear are chrome tipped exhaust pipes. Vroom Vroom!
Mesmerizing red carpet mats cover pristine black carpet that floods the floors, and the back trunk area, and it is a deep, deep black, in very good condition. Red inserts with black bolsters leather buckets showing some patina with minor folds, and slight wear, flank a red and black center console/storage unit. In back a brushed stainless steel roll bar protects the heads of the passengers when the soft top is up or down. The console rises to the dash, also houses the 4-speed automatic transmission shifter, climate control, AM/FM Cassette, and a data center with a screen to display information regarding temperatures and other key components of the engine. A digital display is seen in front of the leather steering wheel for RPM/Speed and Oil Pressure/Volts and Fuel range. Controls for power windows, power mirrors, and cruise control are also noted. Some deep grained veneer that is highly polished is noted covering all the flat dash front and console panels adding beautiful warmth to this cold hearted Ford killer.
A 350ci 240 horsepower, Tuned-Port fuel injected L98 V8 engine rests within the engine bay which is very clean with an overall nice patina. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission is attached to the back of the mill. The rear axle has a 2.59 gear ratio.
Very clean, well maintained, rust free, structurally sound, undercoating intact on floor pans, no real leakage to speak of in engine/transmission area, and frame is unscathed...what more could one ask for!? How about 4-wheel power disc brakes that have been drilled and slotted, and C4 suspension all around with new wheels and tires.
This car started right up and ran beautifully throughout our test ride. No known problems with any functions too. The new tires grab like a tight grip on a baseball bat, and handling is like it's on rails!
A very nice 4th gen example of a Corvette, plenty of conveniences, and a documented plethora of new parts oil the body, interior and some drivetrain additions. That snazzy tech digital dash, the warm wood panels for the dash front and console, and stunning red respray with red and black leather seats, all buttoned up and cared for by this Corvette loving consigner.
