Lot 345 - 1988 Chevrolet Corvette C4
|Odometer reading||37,874 miles|
|Result||Sold - £6,509|
The Chevrolet Corvette, colloquially known as the ‘Vette’, is a two-door, two-passenger sports car manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet across more than 60 years of production and eight design generations. From 1953 to 2019, it was front-engined, and since 2020, mid-engined. With its generations noted sequentially from C1 to C8, the Corvette serves as Chevrolet's halo vehicle and is widely noted for its performance and distinctive plastic, either fibreglass or composite, bodywork.
First registered in the UK in August 1988 and subsequently purchased by our vendor on 17th February 1989, this example is presented in very good silver coachwork with grey leather trim. An automatic example, it has a later all LCD dashboard which,at the time of initial inspection, was all functioning correctly. Having been owned as part of a modest collection but enjoyed for the last 25 years, this car reveals itself to be a well cared for example that has been stored recently thus would benefit from a service. Offered with a good history file this is a very desirable collectors’ model with what is believed to be genuine mileage from new. Certainly, an ultra cool 80’s sports car and upon inspection we believe will not disappoint.
