HIGHLIGHTS: Nice driver-quality C4 with a little surprise under the hood! Lowered on newer Corvette-style wheels, dual exhaust, hopped up fuel-injected LT-1 stroker! Trickflow aluminum heads and Hedman Hedders! Get ready to burn rubber!!

BODY OVERVIEW: The exterior is in nice condition; especially for a 134k mile car that has seen some serious road use. Sitting on a set of newer black Corvette-style wheels, this car has a unique look! There are some bumps and scrapes to be found, but that can be expected with a 37-year-old modified sports car.

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Corvette has been refinished in what looks to be Sebring Silver paint with a gloss black tail panel and hood stripe accent. There are some minor, normal signs of wear as would be expected, such as paint chips, nicks, etc. as shown in the photos. This car has almost certainly received a full repaint in the past. The targa top has a carbon fiber style vinyl wrap, and it's the perfect accent against the silver paint.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in condition consistent with the condition of the rest of the car. There are normal defects and wear, as seen in the photos. Additionally, the interior was previously red, and the red is beginning to show through the black dye. Nonetheless, the C4 interior is timeless! It is hard to believe that GM would get 12 years out of this same design! If you can look past the interior wear and tear, you have yourself a nice comfortable weekend warrior here.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a 5.7 liter LT-1 V8 hooked up to a 4 speed automatic transmission. But wait, there's more! Though under the hood it may just look like the engine had some cosmetic adjustments made, according to the previous owner this car had a significant amount of engine work done including exchanging the 5.7L for a 383ci V8. It also has Trickflow aluminum heads and Hedman Hedders! This engine retained enough factory look that it sure looks like it belongs there. Plus the original LT-1 fuel injection is still in place and operational! While we don't have any paperwork to back up the mechanical changes that have been done, this car speaks for itself–both idling and under power. This is not your average mid-80s Corvette, because this puppy will rip! This 'Vette is a tire-killer ready to make some noise!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The modifications and the price point!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: The modifications aren't for everyone. We're looking at you, Corvette purists!

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The A/C and heater are not currently operational due to a non-functioning blower motor. Additionally, the horn and emergency brake do not work.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone with an empty space in their driveway and a heavy right foot!

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.
