It was purchased from a local owner in January of 2013. The Chevrolet C4 Corvette was the fourth generation Corvette made by GM, nd production of the C4 began in March 1983. Because of its late release date and also because it met all the 1984 Federal requirements, M decided not to release a 1983 Corvette, nd the C4 was not available to the public until 1984. The 1984 release of the C4 heralded a complete redesign for the Corvette, oth inside and out. In comparison, he 1982 Corvette was the last of the C3's, hich dated their basic body structure to 1968 and their chassis to 1963. The C4's design criteria specified a new design resulting in more ground clearance but less overall height, lower center of gravity, nd a more favorable front-to-rear weight distribution. The end result was smaller than its predecessor, nd hovered low to the ground like no prior 'Vette. From a performance perspective, his made for a sportscar with handling that was heads above the competition; but for some C4 owners, hey found themselves describing entering and exiting the car as "falling in, nd climbing out." Stylistically, he C4 reflects the aesthetics of the era, hanks to the work of designer Jerry Palmer. The clear, ggressive, et functional lines of the C4 proved to be a success in the wind tunnel as well, esulting in a drag coefficient of just 0.34. The flat front windshield sports a rake of 64 degrees, nd the dome-shaped rear window is still the largest piece of glass in an American car. In 1986, xactly 10 years after the last convertible Corvette was offered, M offered the C4 in a convertible model. Though more expensive than the coupe, he convertible met with immediate popular success. In '86, ts first year of production, he convertible was only available as an Indy 500 pace car replica, nd customers could still get a T-tops on an '86 'Vette. Also in 1986, he Corvette took another step forward with both safety and performance by offering ABS, nd in 1992 traction control was introduced. Also in 1992, new six-speed manual gearbox increased fuel economy. During the C4's long and distinguished run, hevrolet issued a number of special editions, ncluding the Callaway twin-turbo, he Z51, he Z52, he Z25 (40th Anniversary), he ZR-1, he Z07, nd the Z15 (Collector's Edition). Of these, he Callaway and the ZR-1 are perhaps the best known in the Corvette performance world. In 1996, M released the Grand Sport as a commemorative edition to mark the final year of the C4's production, nd also offered an optional LT4 engine. The LT4 was standard in the Grand Sport, nd an available stand-alone option in other 1996 Corvettes. The C4 Corvette was produced from March 1983 to 1996. Total production was 358,180, ncluding 74,651 convertibles. Base Corvette Convertible with 350 cu. in. 240 hp engine and four speed automatic transmission was $36,785.00.
