1988 Chevrolet CorvetteSelling a beautiful 1988 Corvette in White with Red fender stripes, and red interior. Engine is the massive L98 5.7 L V8 (350 cu in). This engine was produced between 1985 to 1992, and had an added tuned-port fuel injection "TPI", 3.08:1 rear axle ratio, and aluminum cylinder heads with modified D-ports.Tranny is 4 speed Auto with overdrive and shifts great.
Body is in great shape, no major dents or cracks or rust (body is fiber glass so rust is always rare).
Paint looks good, some slight hairline cracking and a couple chips flaked off on targa top.
Glass hatchback in great shape. Is tinted and has new hardware (two release buttons are in the cab).
The C4 Corvette was a completely new chassis and modern design that was seen as a much sleeker clean look. There was a huge design emphasis on the handling for this model with all-independent suspension and lightweight components, even had aluminum calipers. The tall side rails on the frame that you climb over when getting into the seat helped maintain chassis rigidity and this focus on handling and tight suspension. The car feels like you're on rails when you take corners. High performance Primewell PZ900 Racing tires are in good shape, don't slide out until you make them. Racing wheels made by Center Line are 17 inch.
Aftermarket exhaust system sounds awesome - loud, throaty, sporty, but not obnoxious.
All lights and electronics work - signals, horn, flip up headlights, windows, power side view mirror, power seats, etc. Only a few gauges on the digital liquid crystal display are problematic, but speedo and tach are good. Upgraded sound system is amazing - lots of bass but clean sound. A/C may need to be recharged, I'm not sure, but not really necessary when the top of off and windows are down. Engine bay is super clean, interior is good, but could use a little love on some sun-damaged areas of carpet.Just had a fresh oil change 2 months ago, seafoam treatment and new mass air flow sensor replaced - idles a little high, but usually a easy fix but adjusting throttle cable.
This car is a joy to drive, lots of power, performance and styling. Previous owner was a mechanic and car dealer that our family is friends with. He took really good care of this car - always referred to it as his baby. Perfect summer toy (which is what he used it for). Definitely seems faster than stock. L98 is a bulletproof engine that makes a lot of power. Drives completely straight. Tons of torque. Really awesome car, no wonder Michael Jordan drove one back in the day.
This is a awesome car that is extremely fun to drive and turns heads everywhere, but it isn't right off the factory floor so please ask any questions or come have a mechanic/friend/yourself see the car in person before bidding.We have been as honest as possible, but we are not mechanics.Please do not bid if you do not intend on purchasing the car. Title is clean. Non-refundable deposit of $400 is due within 48 hours. Remaining amount payment will be paid via bank transfer, certified check or cash in person. Car will not be released until full payment has cleared. Shipping arrangements are buyer's responsibility but we are happy to assist.
