1994 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
1994 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
In 1951 a group of Harley Earl's "Special Projects" crew began work on a GM sports car. Bob McLean designed a general layout for the car which was originally code named, "Opel." William Durant, the founder of GM, said a wallpaper pattern he saw in a Paris hotel in 1908 inspired the bow tie logo. Supposedly, he ripped off a small piece of it and brought it back to Detroit. Myron Scott, at the time Chevrolet's Chief photographer, is credited with coming up with the Corvette name, drawing from the small, fast warships of the "Corvette" class.
A C-4 “new generation” Corvette, might be masquerading as a collector car with its low mileage, and all original equipment. originally owned by a collector in Chicago, our consigner swiped it in a sale of said collection and has enjoyed it for the last 5 years. Powered by a LT-1 5.7-liter mill, and bathed in Torch Red, it is as if the some Little Red Corvette was written for this collector car.
Torch Red covers every fiberglass surface. A 1-piece removable fiberglass roof panel sits on top, and retractable halogen headlamps are up front, along with halogen fog lamps and tungsten running lights and signals which are below the neoprene body matching bumper. All chrome is gone, and now black stainless steel is highlighting the windows and doors. Greenhouse glass makes up the rear of the car, and it rolls up to a flat rear panel with the Corvette rounded corner square taillights which are deeply inset into the rear body matching Torch Red neoprene rear bumper and roll pan. 4 stainless steel pipes peek out from underneath on either side, and the turbine style wheel covers have never been curbed and are nice and shiny.
Black leather wraps the smooth contemporary styled high back buckets, and steering wheel, as well as center console armrest. There are many convenience options on this car such as analog and orange digital display instrumentation, AM/FM/Cassette/CD player, power windows, door locks, seats, steering and brakes. A clean dash as well as fair carpeting complete the black package.
A 5.7-liter 300hp LT-1 V8 sits under the clamshell hood and can be accessed very conveniently. It presents with electronic fuel injection, and a 4-speed 700R4 automatic transmission, recently serviced, with overdrive back the mill up. The rear axle weighs in with a 2.73 ratio.
Typical for a car of this age and mileage, ABS disc brakes are seen, as well as a performance axle ratio differential. 5 link rear suspension with transverse fiberglass spring, and independent front suspension, with power rack and pinion steering are seen. Power disc braking is on all 4 corners, and a MagnaFlow exhaust and muffler system is now mounted on the undercarriage.
This warship, with the deep throaty dual exhaust emanating from the 5.7-liter mill, and the ability to strike in a moment's notice, fired right up. On the test track it has nice smooth acceleration, great rail like handling, and bias free panic stopping. All functions were working just fab, and the A/C definitely blew cold!
Wrapped in creature comforts, and plenty of leather, this Corvette is ready to be your daily driver, or just a shower not unlike its long-time collector owner. Either way the Torch Red force will be with you.
