The C3 Corvette was an unqualified success. The public had accepted the new body style and responded by pushing sales volume to the 40,000 / year level in six of the last seven years of production. The Corvette had established itself as the technological flagship of the GM lineup. But the last significantly new Corvette chassis was introduced in 1963, more than 20 years earlier. To stay on top, a new generation Corvette was needed. Video Production by http://www.ishootyouryoutube.com
1980 Corvettes are still an incredible car!
Corvettes, which had been slowly gaining weight, went on a diet for 1980.
Lightened roof panels, an aluminum differential housing and crossmember
along with a thinner hood, windshield, frame and door panels all
contributed to the cause. Federal government regulations entered a new era
of absurdity with the requirement of a speedometer limited to 85 mph. There
was no limitation to the top speed of the Corvette. Video Production by
1984 Corvette Acceleration Run
Took the rarely driven 'Vette out for a spin! Great running '84! This car
is lots of fun to drive. It has nearly 300 lb-ft of torque at low rpm and
nearly 1g of grip, which equals lots of fun on a curvy road.
1984 Chevrolet Corvette 4+3 2 Owner CLEAN Youngtimer C4 For Netherlands Export
I like a 84 Corvette and I like them because of the way they ride a bit
stiffer than other years and also i do dig the 4+3 Option as well and Maybe
it's from My 1982 Collectors Edition I Drove for 6 years But i really like
a Cross FIre Injection. Be it a Argument for most folks these cars are nice
and have a Great look to them and with the Doug Nash 4 Plus 3 You likely
have one of the most economical Corvettes ever built. These are a Great

The fourth generation Corvette was the first all-new Corvette since 1963.
Production was to begin for the 1983 model year but quality issues and part
delays resulted in only 44 1983 model prototypes being produced that were
never sold. All of the 1983 prototypes were destroyed except one with a
white exterior, medium blue interior, L83 350 ci, 205 bhp V8, and 4-speed
automatic transmission. After extensive testing and modifications were
completed, it was initially retired as a display sitting in an external
wall over the Bowling Green Assembly Plant's employee entrance. Later this
only surviving 1983 prototype was removed, restored and is now on public
display at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It is
still owned by GM.
Regular fourth generation production began on January 3, 1983 as the 1984
model year and delivery to customers began in March 1983. The 1984 model
carried over the 350 cu in (5.7 L) L83 slightly more powerful (5 bhp)
"Crossfire" V8 engine from the final 1982 third generation model. New
chassis features were aluminum brake calipers and an all-aluminum
suspension for weight savings and rigidity. The new one piece targa top had
no center reinforcement. A new electronic dashboard with digital liquid
crystal displays for the speedometer and tachometer was standard. Beginning
in 1985, the 230 bhp (170 kW) L98 engine with tuned port fuel injection was
the standard engine.
September 1984 through 1988 Corvettes offered a Doug Nash designed "4+3"
transmission -- a 4-speed manual coupled to an automatic overdrive on the
top three gears. It was designed to help the Corvette meet U.S. fuel
economy standards. Since 1981 when it was last offered, a manual
transmission returned to the Corvette starting with production in
late-1984. The transmission proved to be problematic and was replaced by a
modern ZF 6-speed manual gearbox in 1989.
In 1986 the second Corvette Indy Pace Car was released. It was the first
convertible Corvette since 1975. A Center High Mounted Signal Light (CHMSL;
a third center brake light) was added in 1986 to comply with safety
regulations. All 1986 convertibles had an Indy 500 emblem mounted on the
console making any color a pace car edition. The color of the pace car used
in the race was yellow.
In 1987, the B2K twin-turbo option
became available from the factory. The Callaway Corvette was a Regular
Production Option (RPO B2K). The B2K option coexisted from 1990 to 1991
with the ZR-1 option, which then replaced it.
Early B2Ks produced 345 bhp (257 kW) and 450 lb·ft (610 N·m); later
versions boasted 450 bhp (336 kW) and 613 lb·ft (831 N·m).
1988 saw the 35th Anniversary Edition. Each of these featured a special
badge with an identification number mounted next to the gear selector, and
were finished with a white exterior, wheels, and interior.
In 1991, all Corvettes received updates to the body, interior, and wheels.
The convex rear fascia that set the 1990 ZR-1 apart from the base model was
now included on L98 Corvettes, making the styling of the expensive ZR-1
even closer to that of the base cars. The most obvious difference remaining
between the base and ZR-1 models besides the wider rear wheels was the
location of the CHMSL, which was integrated into the new rear fascia used
on the base model, but remained at the top of the rear-hatch on the ZR-1's.

This video is about a very loud Corvette I saw during a trackday.
The engine of the car has got now a Supercharger which increase the power of the car
up to 500 BHP, more ore less, as the owner said. The Exhaust has been modified too and now the V8
sounds in a spectacular way.
You can hear the sound of the car with some revs and while the owner was
trying to powersliding his car on the wet asphalt.

cool things were added like a Alpine CD deck. Check out more below.

I have always wanted to do a 0-60mph. run. I set the car up with my old
Canon Elura on the roll bar. It worked in the garage, but died. So all the
incar prep work with the iPhone Stopwatch failed. It was fun anyway .. I
used the computer and the iPhone Stopwatch. The car shifts into 3d. gear at
62mph. Anyway, I was disappointed, I thought the car was much faster. Next time I won't focus on the
iPhone. But hook up the car'

1987 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ROADSTER " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
1987 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ROADSTER. # 1G1YY3185H5101513. Nice late model
Vette. I rarely buy this new of a Vette but it's red and this is a good
ride. I have driven it about 100 miles so far. L98 5.7 liter ( 350 engine )
T.P.I. V-8 engine. Automatic transmission with overdrive. Anti-lock brake
system. Power steering. Limited slip rear axel. Driver and passenger 6 way
power seats. Remote power door locks. Alarm system, you walk by and it
beeps at you so stay away. Automatic heat and air system. AM/FM Bose with 6
CD sound system. It's loaded. Custom dash trim. New convertible black soft
top. Serviced and safety checked and ready to go. The paint is decent but
does have small chips in the paint and some bigger ones that have been
brush touched. The passenger seat has a bad spot and the drivers seat on
the left side has worn through spot in the leather. Check out the video and
the photos to see for yourself. The underside is good. I bought this Vette
from a local couple and this was the wife's car. Maybe that's why it runs
and drives so well. I like driving the Vette with all it's modern features.
I would drive it anywhere and so would you. The best part is it's an
affordable sports car. Cond 3+.
