60 Vette

It's in great condition, and still looks awesome almost 25 years later thanks to the Bowling Green assembly plant's well-known quality standards and excellent care since it was new. There are a few signs of use here and there, as you'd expect from a car built to be enjoyed, but it's pretty obvious that this one has always been someone's fair-weather flyer and not a daily driver (although it's certainly capable). If you like your Corvettes perfectly imperfect, this is an ideal example, especially for preservation class judging, and we have to admit that any Corvette convertible is going to attract plenty of attention.

The red leather interior is as futuristic as 1988 could make it, with digital gauges, a trip computer, and enough buttons to command the space shuttle. To be honest, the red leather interior is fairly rare, particularly in a convertible, making this a very low production ragtop that many folks have never seen before. Both seats are in excellent condition and are every bit as comfortable as they look once you master the unique step-in procedure the C4 requires. The leather is showing some age-related comfort marks, but nothing major and on a 'Vette, that kind of stuff is character, not a defect. Cold A/C, original stereo, power windows and locks, cruise control, as well as a tilt wheel were all part of the package, making the Corvette a true grand touring car. Even the original white top, which stows invisibly under the flush-fitting deck lid, is still in excellent condition since it has been garage kept.

The L98 350 cubic inch V8 remained at 230 horsepower, which was the biggest number available in an American V8 (remember, this was 1988). Where it really excels, however, is torque production, and with the automatic transmission, this car simply carves through traffic and is an incredible point-and-shoot machine. The engine bay is quite clean, with the familiar L98 long-tube induction system, and unlike so many of its siblings, it has not been modified or abused. It's in excellent shape and history has proven that it's virtually indestructible no matter how hard you drive it, and despite all the modifications available, it appears stock.
