Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1984

OVERVIEW:

The 1984 model year was the second highest production year in Corvette history. The 1983 model year was skipped because the new C4 wasn't ready for production due to quality and build issues. The C4 was officially on sale in the US in March of 1983 (except in California). This made the model year longer than normal which is one of the reasons for the high sales figures. All 1984 models were produced at the Bowling Green, Kentucky factory.

The brand new 1984 Vette was almost a complete redesign. The design included handling as its main goal and more interior space and ground clearance as secondary goals. It was also specified that the height of the car should be lower. To attain the height, goal the engine was moved rearward and the exhaust was routed through the center tunnel resulting in less room in the foot wells. The new design included many firsts, including a new 1 piece removable Targa top. The rear hatch glass was the largest piece of glass on any production car in America at the time. New aluminum calipers made by Girlock of Australia stopped the car. A new clamshell hood design made it easier to get to engine and front suspension components. A manual transmission option was offered but was not available until January of 1984. A fully electronic digital dashboard was standard equipment and offered readouts in either English or metric systems. The parking brake moved from the center of the car to the left of the driver.

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

This car is for a Corvette Collector. It is one of the first new bodied C4 Corvettes. It is a rare highly optioned 1984 Chevy Corvette with only 39K original miles. I have owned it for a short time, and purchased it from a collector where it spent most of its life in his garage.

The colors are Silver with Silver leather interior. Automatic. I have not seen a 1984 with these options. Corvette Museum tells me it was a Special-Order Car. Car is in excellent condition and with a little attention can be brought up to show quality. The car still has all the original Tags and markings in place. Has been in storage, but started and driven short periods to keep it fresh. I won't go down the list, but all aspects of the car are in excellent condition.

Clear NJ Title with Corvette Museum Report.
