1985 Corvette C4 Coupe Z-51 L98 w/ Manual Transmission
Please read description thoroughly and carefully.
This car is registered in CT on a Rebuilt Title since I bought it in 2007, and before by the previous owner.
The License Plates were removed for pictures.
The car is Smoke Blue w/ Graphite interior, and has 67,857 original miles as of this listing. The engine is an L98 5.7 / 350CI V8 with Tuned Port Injection. The transmission is a standard (manual shift) 4 speed Borg Warner Super T-10 with a Doug Nash 4+3 Overdrive gearbox. This Corvette has the Z-51 handling package. The rims are from a 2001 corvette. The AC works, but is not charged (R12). The radio is a Pioneer AM/FM/CD (single) stereo with 4 speakers.
Previous owner’s upgrades include rebuilt transmission, oversized 58mm throttle body, ECM w/ Hyper Tech chip, Vortex Ram Air kit w/ extra K&N high flow cone filter (2 total), heat treated short headers with a Flowmaster 3-inch dual exhaust system, & chrome on the motor.
When I bought this car, I didn’t know a lot about Corvettes. The guy I bought it from knew even less apparently, and did most of his own work, and the car was a mess.
Most of the work to get this car back on track was done at my local Chevy dealer by their Corvette Specialist. Mechanically the car is sound and runs great, needing paint and cosmetic work to finish. There is a slow oil drip that is most likely the rear main engine seal that Chevy said is common in these and recommended to leave it alone as it is a minor leak, and not worth the labor cost unless other major engine repairs are needed later on. I never have to add oil between oil changes. It is mostly just an annoyance in that it leaves oil drips on the floor. This car has always been kept in the garage since I have owned it.
Some mechanical repairs aside from basic maintenance are as follows:
Overdrive gearbox unit rebuilt by S-K Speed & Performance (Long Island, N.Y.) installed at Chevy, upgraded power window motors / regulators, weather stripping / seals, replace master & slave clutch cylinders, windshield wiper/wash module, intake manifold gaskets, timing chain cover, fuel pump, rebuilt top end of engine, head gaskets and valve job, exhaust manifold gaskets, O2 sensor, water pump, alternator / rectifier, Blackout Headliner & Pinhole Sunscreen for the Targa top, which was replaced with a new Targa top early on, but now has a crack starting to show. New inner door panels and armrest savers, sun visors, antenna saver bypass wiring harness w/ toggle switch (Passenger side), power door lock switches, Conti Extreme High Performance DWS tires (275/40ZR18 Rear - 245/45ZR17 Front), neutral (clutch) safety switch, reverse light switch with toggle switch (Driver side) under dash, replaced 4 speed shifter & linkage rod assembly, rebuilt digital instrument "star wars" cluster panel, replaced brake light switch, ignition switch, heater shut off valve assembly, rear suspension spindle rod / bearings, overdrive cable, new starter, drive axle u-joints, replaced rear trailing arm assembly.
This is most of the more major repairs. I have a ridiculous amount of money tied up into this car.
Selling to down-size. I don’t drive it nearly enough & it spends most of the time sitting in my garage.
This is a nice looking, good running & handling, comfortable, very distinct, fun car to drive. It gets a lot of compliments, and I think you’ll be pleased with it. Will include a microfiber car cover.
