1987 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
1987 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
Mention the name Corvette and immediately someone in the conversation will perk up and pay attention. It's a timeless American sports car and has gone through several personality changes. From the 2-seat coupe when first introduced, to a fast 50's classic, to the Stingray versions of the 1960's and early 1970's. And now all sleek and trimmed with lots of power, no more chrome, retaining the hidden headlights and a much lower profile for the 80's.
For consignment, we now present, from way back in 1987, a morsel of Corvette history in the flesh, a Chevrolet Corvette! Drum roll please….
All clean copper metallic painted fiberglass is seen on this exterior in good condition. Some dulling in the paint is noted on the rear neoprene taillight insert panel, and a few scratches throughout. Hidden headlights for this year and some shark gills on the front quarters, otherwise just acres of fiberglass that is sculpted into this car. A black trim runs around the entire center of this car even through the center of the bumpers. Looking like the wind shaped it, the front windshield is raked rearward for some slip when motoring down the highway, and a smoked glass top covers the passengers. This seamlessly melts into the rear sloped and curved greenhouse glass rear “hatch” if you will, which turns out is a nice place for storage. 17-inch polished American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are on all 4 corners and all are wrapped by 275/40R17's
Charcoal leather buckets grace the inside of this Vette. A digital driver information system is seen on the square design dash, as well as the 4-speed automatic transmission shifter in the console. Power windows, power steering and a key fob remote access button will get you into the rear storage area that has enough room to haul “stuff”. Carpeting appears in good condition but has faded from its original gray to a lighter brown in a few areas throughout. Door panels are molded vinyl and contain a central black actuator panel with locks and a courtesy light. The steering wheel is showing off as original to the car and is wrapped in a leather covering. The original radio is still there as are the climate control panels and large display which has all the warning lights to foretell you of impending trouble. Leather buckets with large armrest style bolsters which house the power buttons to get the seat just right Goldilocks.
A 5.7 Liter electronic fuel injected V8 can be viewed within an original engine bay with the flip of the entire hinged front end. Bolted on the back is the 4-speed automatic 700R4 transmission. Keeping everything cool is an all electric fan cooling system. Feeding the engine is EFI, and on the back is a 2.59 axle. All clean under the front of this car in the engine bay.
Reasonably clean and rust free all good underneath with an overall light undercoating which has patinated nicely. X-bracing shows and ties the car together for extra stiffening. Suspension includes an aluminum forged A arms and mono leaf spring and is seen on the front and rear. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners. Also, a Borla exhaust is on and looking like new.
This car started right up and on the test track performed much like a 1987 Corvette! I noticed a dimming of the dash cluster which could possibly be on its way out, but was working the display during the test drive.
Overall a fairly clean Corvette, nice copper metallic paint, American Racing Torque Thrust wheels, and automatic transmission. In keeping with the America's Sports car theme, this one has plenty of life left to carry that torch.
