CLEAN & STOCK SURVIVOR W/ CLEAN HISTORY REPORT! 5.7L V8, AUTO, SHARP CONVERTIBLE

In 1987, the Corvette was still the king of American performance, and in roadster form it was the best example of General Motors' engineering might. Full of technology and with performance that could humble the best Europe had to offer, it is part of the foundation that gave us today's amazing C8. This clean 1987 Chevrolet Corvette convertible offers an awesome color combination, a comfortable interior loaded with options, and hails from a warm climate, so you know it's as clean as they come underneath. All that for under $14k? Sign me up.

Baseball, apple pie, and red Corvettes. If you're going to get America's favorite sports car, how could you pick any other color? This convertible is a survivor, which means the Bright Red paint is 100% original. With originality comes the kiss of time, character marks, and the slow wear-and-tear that comes with 123K miles, so if you're looking for a trailer queen you can stop reading now. But that doesn't mean this droptop isn't nice, in fact it looks pretty good in person, although you will see a few faded areas, scratches, and a couple of paint chips here and there as well. For a driver-grade vehicle that's celebrating its 35th birthday, it's far ... Please ask for the full description.

Baseball, apple pie, and red Corvettes. If you're going to get America's favorite sports car, how could you pick any other color? This convertible is a survivor, which means the Bright Red paint is 100% original. With originality comes the kiss of time, character marks, and the slow wear-and-tear that comes with 123K miles, so if you're looking for a trailer queen you can stop reading now. But that doesn't mean this droptop isn't nice, in fact it looks pretty good in person, although you will see a few faded areas, scratches, and a couple of paint chips here and there as well. For a driver-grade vehicle that's celebrating its 35th birthday, it's far better than most of its contemporaries, especially at this price point. If you like your Corvettes easy to drive and looking good when they're cruising down the coast, this is a great choice and we have to admit that any 'Lil Red Corvette convertible is going to attract plenty of attention.

The red leather interior is as futuristic as 1987 could make it, with digital gauges, a trip computer, and enough buttons to command the space shuttle. And yes, that is indeed a vintage Technophone car phone mounted in the center, the very same that your father had and never used because the family would've had to take out a second mortgage to cover the bill. Like the exterior, everything inside is 100% original, so there's wear and signs of use on the seats, although once again, not nearly as much as you'd expect – especially in a convertible. Surprisingly, the black dash is crack free, which is pretty rare if you're familiar with GM materials from the '80s, and the door panels, plush red carpets, and center console are all in solid condition as well. Options include cold A/C, an AM/FM/Cassette stereo, power windows/locks/mirrors, cruise control, as well as a tilt wheel, making this vintage Corvette a true grand touring car. Even the black convertible top, which stows invisibly behind the padded roll bar and under the flush-fitting deck lid, is in good condition and protects the cabin from the elements.

The 350 cubic inch V8 LT1 remained at 240 horsepower, which was the biggest number available in an American V8 (remember, this was 1987). Where it really excels, however, is torque production, and with the quick-shifting 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, this car simply carves through traffic and is an incredible point-and-shoot machine. The engine bay is reasonably clean, with the familiar L98 long-tube induction system, and unlike so many of its siblings, it has not been modified or abused. It's in excellent driving shape and history has proven that it's virtually indestructible no matter how hard you drive it, and despite all the modifications available, it appears entirely stock. Underneath, this one is ultra clean, with evidence of its warm-climate history apparent everywhere you look. Beautiful chrome wheels add flash, and it's a look that updates the car in a big way and allows the use of seriously big 255/50/16 Goodyear rubber.

Get your piece of fiberglass history for a lot less than you'd expect. The performance is still impressive and there's nothing else quite like a Corvette roadster on the open road. Call today!
