Seller's Comments:
This exceptionally low-mile, one-owner California Corvette was a factory one-off Special Order - details of that will be uploaded shortly. Equipped with the Z51 Performance Handling Package, 4-speed manual, black glass removableroof,Delco Boise stereo, power leather seats, cruise control, power windows and locks, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel; original window sticker, owners manuals, service history are included with the vehicle. The exceptionally low miles are the result of a back injury that prevented the owner from driving it; when he finally recovered the entire engine was resealed by Chevrolet. The majority of the miles are from Interstate 80 round trips of over 300 miles from the Bay Area to a cabin in the Gold Country foothills.The 4th generation Chevrolet Corvette (C4) was introduced in 1984. For 1985 GM addressed valid criticisms associated with the 1984 model, and in the process created a far more complete Vette. The biggest improvement over the 84 was the introduction L98 engine. Replacing the relatively anemic Chevy L83 engine, it continued with a 350 cubic inch displacement but added Bosch tuned-port fuel injection (TPI), bringing output up to 230 hp (up from 205). Torque was increased to 330 lb-ft (up from 290). This engine was also more efficient than the L83. The 85 continued with the Doug Nash 4+3 manual transmission, with overdrive gears on the top three gears. For 85, an override button was added to the top of the shifter.At the time of its introduction, Car and Driver tested the 1985 Corvette and found a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 14.1 seconds at 97 mph. In response to comments about the harsh ride, GM engineers reduced the spring rates by about a quarter in the front and rear. Additionally, some of the endemic squeaks and rattles of the 1984 model were ironed out for 85 Corvette. The Z51 Performance Handling Package includes Delco-Bilstein gas shock-absorbers, thicker stabilizer bars, a heavy-duty cooling-system, and 9.5-inch-wide wheels all around.The new engine, softened ride, and eliminated squeaks all went toward a far more refined Chevrolet Corvette in 1985. The addition of Tuned-Port Injection badges found on the sides of the car were meant to bring attention to the new engine. Inside, the main change was the digital instrument cluster; its overall style was carried over from the 1984 model, but was revised to be more legible. Chevrolet sold 39,729 Corvettes in the 1985 model year. 14,802 were optioned with the Z51 Performance Handling package; this and the 4-speed are what collectors seek out.From January-May there has been no decline in values for this year and model Corvette. Hagerty Valuations has #1 Concours examples at $20,500, and #2 Excellent at $13,300. We offer this exceptionally low-mile beauty at $19,900. Note: this car is on consignment and garage stored - as it always has been - in the hills of San Mateo.
