Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1984

I am third owner, purchased inNovember 2000and have driven the car13,000 miles inthat time (101K currently).Always garage kept;First owner special ordered the car with these options: manual transmission, heavy duty cooling, Z51 performance package, leather seats, Bose audio.The second owner purchased the car in 1986, moved to California, and kept until 2000. I purchased and had it shipped to PA.Currently registered in PA as an antique (cheap insurance) with clean and clear titlein my name.

In 2017 I began overhauling this car, spending $14,000 (receipts available) and using only the best parts available


-SBC 350 Cross Fire Injection(RPO L83)rebuilt in 2017.

-Bored 0.030” over and assembled using USA made components.

-Components include Comp Cams valve train, ARP fasteners & Sealed power hypereutectic pistons, Edelbrock heads. Factory rods and crank.


-Accel 8.8 MM spark plug wires, Flamethrower cap, rotor, ignition coil, ignition module, Hypertech PROM. New O2, MAP, TPS, and coolant sensors

Fuel & Intake:

-New injectors, rebuilt throttle bodies, new ’85 high flow fuel pump, Renegade performance intake.

Cooling system:

Engine wear components have all been replaced, including:

-New master cylinder,New carbon metallic brake pads with less than 5k miles, Rebuilt calipers, Braided stainless brake hoses

Steering / Suspension:Rebuilt factory Z51 quick ratio steering rack and pinion,Reman power steering pump, outer tie rod ends. All 4 shocks have been replaced with factory Bilstein Shocks. Recent alignment.Very tight and grips the road like you are on rails.

Transmission:Full rebuild of direct drive T10 and overdrive unit by SK Speed in Long Island, NY in 2017. They are the best in the business. New performance clutch disc, pressure plate, bearing, fork, resurfaced flywheel, clutch master, clutch slave, clutch hose.

Rear End:All new u joints. Fluid changed 2017.

Exterior:Black paint has a very deep shine. Repaint prior to 2000 when I bought the car and paint is holding up very well. Always garaged during my ownership and always detailed. No peeling of the paint or clearcoat; what you see in the pictures are reflections in the paint. Factory black, no modifications like spoilers or ground effects. Paint is very nice but not perfect. There is one chip behind the driver’s door, but it’s been that way since I bought it in 2000. New emblems, new 3 piece front bumper underside moldings. The front bumper has no rock chips.

Interior:Graphite leather. I had the driver seat redone in 2001 so the bolster and seat have very little wear. Carpet is original. Interior is stock. Manual seats,rebuilt dash cluster, rebuilt Bose head unit,power windows. No cracks in dashboard.

Wheels/Tires:Wheels are stock Z51 wheels. Tires are Kumho factory size 255/50 16's. All tires have good tread left, and no crackingbut I would consider replacing due to age.

Other work completed:

Replaced rear window hatch struts

All fluids flushed (coolant, brake, clutch, power steering, rear diff) in 2017

Sylvania Silverstar Headlights

Rebuilt headlight motors

Blower motor replaced

New magnesium valve covers

Optima red top battery

Selling because my dad passed away and I inherited his car. I spend most of my time driving his car and never really get to drive this Vette anymore, and I don’t have the garage space for everything.

Comes with copy of window sticker from NCM, factory service manual, factory service parts identification manual, original targa top tool, and many other brochures. It is a late production (38,798 out of 51,547).

Corvette is very nice for a 1984 but not perfect.Please remember it's a 36 year old car with 101,000 miles.Runs well,No fluid leaks. Always run on Mobil 1 and oil changed every 6 months regardless of mileage. I only use premium fuel.When it gets to operating temperature,the check engine light will come on and throw code 44 (System too Lean). I haven’t driven the car much since the rebuild (was busy taking care of my dad) and never had the time to look into it.It could be old gas or needs timing adjusted or just the final tune.Power radio antenna does not work. Ineed the garage space, and just don’t have the time to work on it. I have over $14,000 in less than 3 years in this car. AC is not charged because I never used it, but all components are new or rebuilt.
