ONLY 68,408 ORIGINAL MILES, OPTIONAL FE3 SUSPENSION, GREAT COLOR, PRICED RIGHT!
This bright red 1990 Corvette offers big fun with a little price tag. Even today, the C4 is a potent street car, and this one with an L98 and lots of options can more than hold its own with some much more recent hardware. And there really is nothing like cruising in your own Corvette, getting you into all the great Corvette events around the country for not a lot of scratch. And with only 68,408 original miles, this car still has plenty of life left in it.
The creative types must have been on vacation when GM was coming up with Corvette colors in 1990, because it's merely called Bright Red. Whatever it's called, however, there's no mistaking that shape, which is one of the most distinctive ever created. This one has been driven and enjoyed, but still looks great, even 23 years after it was first taken home by an enthusiastic new owner. Most, if not all, of the paint appears original, so someone's been washing and waxing it on a regular basis, one of the Corvette owner's favorite things to do. Panel fit on the C4s was surprisingly good, and by 1990, they had pretty much worked the bugs out of the design, creating a car that tracks down the road like a homing missile. The rear bumper shows no signs of damage, not even stress cracks that come from nudging the car behind it while parking, and the rockers haven't been beaten up by stray rocks flying off those wide-by-huge tires. You can't get more bright red sports car for your dollar than this!
The handsome gray leather interior is also original, and as so often happens with cars with open tops, it has spent a lot of time out in the sun. The seats are the optional AQ3 power sport buckets that will fit themselves to just about any frame, and the cushions themselves remain firm and comfortable. With all those buttons, the cockpit is still a high-tech place to do the serious business of driving and with the FE3 adjustable suspension, cruise control, power windows and locks, and automatic climate control, there are plenty of switches to play with. The digital instrument panel is a cool relic of the 80s and even the factory AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo still sounds great. Carpets are clean, the door panels are very good, and this car carries the somewhat rare dual top option with red and smoked glass panels.
Tilt that massive clamshell hood forward and you'll find GM's evergreen L98 350 cubic inch V8. With Tuned-Port Injection, it generates enough low-end torque to pull a building off its foundation and pulls like a freight train through the gears. The engine bay is quite clean and there is evidence of proper care and maintenance, so there's still plenty of life left in this 'Vette. It's nice to see that it's largely stock, so there are no questionable "upgrades" or modifications that would suggest the car has been abused. The 700R4 4-speed automatic is the perfect partner for the torquey L98, and thanks to the the optional G92 performance rear axle (3.07 with limited slip) it's an effortless high-speed cruiser. Those flashy 17-inch Corvette alloys are very nice and wear recent 275/40/17 Goodyear Eagle performance radials.
If you're a Corvette admirer, this is a great opportunity to get into a late-model 'Vette for not a lot of money. Call today!
