Brief Overview, High-Level Info:  The car comes with the original stock L98 , which has the Bosch Tuned Port Injection system, and  automatic transmission.   There were 39,729 corvettes built for the production year 1985.  My car is 1 of 3,579 built with factory paint code '81' (Bright Red) and interior code red leather and red carpet.  

 Overall Vehicle Condition:   The car should considered a Condition #2 car or Excellent condition for it's age - (Condition #1 would be cars that are completely flawless cars and are the best of the best.  The car should present the same as it did when it was built, flawless).  Condition #2 essentially means the car could win local/regional events and shows, it may have flaws.   The car should represent it's era well and be of the nicest condition possible. The car currently has 69,616 miles on it - it gets driven sometimes so that may go up a little by the time the car is sold, but it would not be a significant amount.

 Vehicle Condition Details:  There are some slight issues/problems/concerns with any of the body, and interior on the car.  The acrylic Roof panel is still in Excellent condition, as well as all of the weather-stripping - original ratchet tool to remove the roof and owner's manual are included.  The car presents original and has a slow  Air Conditioning system leaked. Usually gets it's freon filled in spring and it stays ice cold all summer.  The car has also had the tires, battery, and exhaust changed.  I haven't owned the car for it's entire history.  Paint appears to be in above-average condition;  minor webbing in the paint on back bumper, the paint shows great for the age of car.    Interior is as expected wear shows in the leather seats, center console dash panels.  The instrument cluster works as originally designed and does not have any blacked out spots.  The door thresholds have no wear from climbing in and out of the car because they have custom cover.  As seen in a lot of older cars, the rear carpet shows some signs of age; some of the carpet pile fibers appear to have been vacuumed a little aggressive. The back / rear hatch hydraulic forks need adjustment or replacement they do not stay up on their own. I have owned this car for over 10 years and it has been summer driven and garage kept.

 I have the car for sale through word-of-mouth and some other listing services also, if no bids have been placed I reserve the right to end this listing at any time..

Why does the Corvette Stingray have so many vents? Here's why

Sun, 27 Jan 2013 19:57:00 EST

Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.
Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray priced from $51,995*

Fri, 26 Apr 2013 12:30:00 EST

After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible - pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.
Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option - just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.
While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).

Chevy Corvette Stingray "colorizer" lets you chase the rainbow

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 16:29:00 EST

After you've convinced your better half to let you buy a new Corvette, then comes the hard part... actually figuring out which 'Vette you want. While Chevrolet has yet to release the official configurator for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, it did give us something else to kill some time playing around with.
The C7 Corvette "colorizer" recently went online, and it lets you look at the car in all of its available colors and wheel options from four different angles so that when this car does go on sale, you know exactly which one you want. It includes the Corvette's full pallet of colors including Torch Red, Laguna Blue and the hue you see above, Velocity Yellow. Toss in the black wheels, and we're sold. If you have some time this afternoon, be sure to check it out the Corvette colorizer for yourself, and even if you don't have the time, we've put together a gallery with all of the possible color combinations.
