Description
Considering its eye-pleasing color combination and undeniable curb appeal, the thought of getting behind the wheel of this 1986 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is sure to bring a smile to your face. Well-optioned, this open-air classic is believed to have a low 34,000 miles and holds the opportunity of plenty of future driving fun. If you're looking for a graceful drop top that you can take out and drive just as soon as you bring it home, this is definitely a car to put on your must-see .....
list.


This '86 wears the same Bright Red paint it featured upon leaving the factory and, like most Corvettes from this era, it still retains its original exterior configuration - most fans of this model would justifiably consider any substantial modifications to be overkill on such a stylish ride. The high impact shade still has a strong shine and accentuates this car's instantly recognizable form nicely - it's a head-turner in its present state and a repaint would take its curb appeal to an even higher level. Its revolutionary perimeter frame - a definite improvement over preceding generations of Corvettes as far as structural strength is concerned - has served it well over the years, so the alignment of its body panels remains on point and its doors shut with a reassuring thud. Should the weather take a turn while you're behind the wheel, the accompanying tan canvas convertible top is in great condition, with no stains and tight stitching, and it seals securely to keep the elements at bay.


Beyond the doors waits a Saddle interior that provides a cool complement to the exterior color. As you'd expect on a convertible that's got more than four decades under its belt, you'll find some signs of sun exposure here and there, but considering Chevy's penchant for equipping its American sports car with compelling interiors, this is a cockpit you could easily picture yourself spending plenty of time in. The contoured bucket seats have retained their shape well and as you look beyond the steering wheel, you'll see a collection of clear, easy to read gauges in the instrument cluster. The air conditioning on this Chevy blows cold and with a little attention, the Clarion AM/FM stereo with its pair of 6x9 speakers could be brought back up to speed.


This classic is powered by a fuel injected 5.7-liter V8 that sits front and center in a nicely organized compartment, surrounded by fresh looking wires and hoses. The engine fires up on cue and pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission which also benefits from being lightly traveled, offering precise, slip-free gear changes. When Chevy introduced the fourth generation of Corvettes, of which this '86 is a proud member, the company prioritized nimble handling and, with its low center of gravity, this is a very adept corner-carver. Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes in both front and back provide reassuringly prompt, fade-resistant stops as this iconic convertible cruises on its set of 16" factory wheels that are wrapped with BF Goodrich tires.


With its timeless aesthetics and instant road-readiness, this 1986 Chevrolet Corvette convertible presents a compelling opportunity. Call today!
