1985 Chevrolet Corvette

I am second owner to best of my knowledge. Got it from estate. Have original owner record book and shows low mileage. All original. Stock engine and all interior original. Hood breather is after market. Fast engine with rear wheel drive. Disk brakes all around. Original wheel rims. The C4 Corvette was known for its evolved, sleek and modern look. In a departure from the fiberglass panels of its forebearers, the C4's rear bumpers and panels were made from molding plastics, a sheet molding compound. The C4 coupe was the first general production Corvette to have a glass hatchback (the limited edition 1982 Collectors Edition being the first Corvette equipped with this feature) for better storage access. The Corvette C4 came standard with an electronic dashboard with a digital liquid crystal display dash, with graphics for speed and RPM and digital displays for other important engine functions. The new 1985 L98 350 added tuned-port fuel injection "TPI", which was standard on all 1985–1991 Corvettes. It was rated at 230bhp for 1985–1986, 240bhp for 1987-1989 (245bhp with 3.08:1 rear axle ratio (1988-1989 only)), and 245bhp in 1990-1991 (250bhp with 3.08:1 rear axle). Aluminum cylinder heads (Corvette only) were released part way through the 1986 model run, modified for 1987 with D-ports, and continued through the end of L98 Corvette production in 1991 (still used on ZZx 350 crate engines until 2015 when the ZZ6 received the Fast Burn heads).[7] The L98 V8 was optional on Jan. '87–'92 Chevrolet Camaro & Pontiac Firebird models (rated at 225hp (168kW)-245hp (183kW) and 330lb·ft (447N·m)-345lb·ft (468N·m)) 1987 versions had 10hp (7kW) and 15lb·ft (20N·m) more and a change to hydraulic roller camshaft. Compression was up again in 1990 to 9.5:1 Camaro/Firebird and 10:1 Corvettes, but rated output stayed the same.
