1989 Chevrolet Corvette

1989 Corvette Coupe

This Corvette is a diamond in the rough. It has 186,530 miles on it. It’s registered until Oct. 2018. It’s been sitting for a month or so since the owner got another car so the battery went dead. I asked and the owner reluctantly agreed to jump start the car and I am so glad he did because the motor purrs like a kitten, it runs soo smooth, like new. We took the car for a drive and it has so much power it pins you to the seat and the transmission shifts strong.

On the down side the car has at least one bald tire and the driver’s side headlight does not pop up when it is supposed to. But the biggest thing it needs is a wash and a detail. You can’t really tell in the photos but the car is a little dirty. If you wash it, polish it and shine up the mag wheels it will look like a different car, like the higher priced ones.
