1986-1989 Corvette for Sale

1986 1987 1988 1989 Used Corvettes

For the first time since 1975 the classic convertible body style was again available starting in 1986. After over a decade absence, the convertible was now here to stay. The convertible option increased the base price about $5,000, but that didn’t seem to bother Corvette enthusiasts. Sales were strong for convertibles in 1986 (over 7,300) and even stronger for 1987 (more than 10,600).

Also new for the 1986 Corvette was an improved security system, designed to augment the traditional alarm. This new Vehicle Anti-Theft System (VATS) electronically matched the key to the vehicle. If you tried to start the Corvette without a key or with a forged key, the system would recognize it and shut down the starter and fuel pump for a few minutes.

1986, 1987, 1988, 1989 Corvette History

Performance improvements for 1987 included an optional Twin Turbo engine package. This package was good for 345 horsepower and 465 ft/lbs of torque. Factory fresh Corvettes were shipped out of house to Callaway Engineering for the upgrade. Only 188 Twin Turbo Corvettes were converted in 1987, the first year of this partnership between Chevrolet and Callaway.

1988 marked the Corvette’s 35th anniversary and Chevrolet celebrated by producing a special edition coupe. White was the theme for these 2,050 cars. White interior, wheels and paint were offset by black roof trim. Buyers could select manual or automatic transmissions, but otherwise all of the 35th Anniversary cars were identical.

New for 1989 was the introduction of the ZF 6 six speed manual transmission. Gear selection became computerized, allowing improved fuel mileage when under mild driving conditions. Both the public and the press eagerly awaited what was supposed to be the big news for 1989, the ZR-1 model. However, due to production problems it ended up being delayed until 1990.
