1989 Chevrolet Corvette Base Hatchback 2-Door
Huge appeal, little price, and all the right paperwork this 1989 Chevrolet Corvette already attracted you even before you saw the low mileage, six-speed, and stellar color combo.
Dark Blue Metallic is a great vivid color that still looks modern today. It was only offered by the factory for a couple of years, and in 1989 less than 1,300 coupes received it. So it's amazing to find this factory paint still looking so good today. And as you look over this whole car, you're going to notice that it has all the right rare features and exceptional care. In fact, you're looking at a coupe that is approaching three decades, and it still has all the right details in place. The headlights fit flush, the weatherstripping is tight, and black trim line runs all the way around the car with the kind of straightness that looks like an unbroken line. In total, you'll love how fantastically coordinated the whole package is. For example, you have the choice between the color matched targa top and the deeply tinted glass one. When you choose the latter, it coordinates with the black trim strip, door handles, and tinted rear window to create a terrific two-tone effect with the deep blue.
And if you like the way the black and blue look together with the top on, you'll love it even more with no roof in place. After all, the dark black leather interior was meant to be shared with the world. In fact, Corvette fans will be particularly keen to look at the seats, because they are an instant indication of the upgraded Z51 sport package. And if you like C4s, you know that the it took the Z51 to get the FX3 selective ride and handling system... And yes, this one has it! You get to control the ride from a selector in the center console, which was both revolutionary and expensive in 1989 that's why less than 1,600 cars received the option. So yes, this coupe is already ultra-desirable, even before you sit down and power adjust the seat to the perfect driving position. The dual spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the cool digital gauge cluster. And your right hand falls perfectly on the very important stick shift (more on that in a moment.) As you gaze across the entire interior, the addition of a wood veneer breaks up the darkness nicely and does a great job of framing the premium features. This includes, power windows, power locks, cruise control, and the factory Bose AM/FM/cassette stereo. Even the original automatic climate control is still pumping out the cold air, so you can stay open to the world without breaking a sweat.
This is the kind of car to take to shows, and when you do, everyone loves to see the cool racecar-like appearance as nearly the whole front section tilts forward. And when you do that, you'll get a great view of the numbers-matching L98 350 cubic-inch V8. This fuel-injected powerplant has tons of torque, and you're in complete control thanks to the original ZF six-speed manual transmission. This was the first year for the new manual gearbox, so it's a rare find, but it really transformed the performance of the C4. Plus, with the FX3 adjustable shocks, four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS, power steering, and a fully independent suspension, this Corvette has all the right features to be a great weekend getaway machine.
Averaging less than 1,200 miles annually already tells you this has been a cherished classic since day one. Plus, the sale comes with the original window sticker, owner's manual, and maintenance records. So a speedy Corvette this complete and appealing is the kind of deal that will be going fast.
