1986 Chevrolet Corvette Sold
The convertible Corvette returned mid year in 1986 after being absent from the lineup since 1975. The new "C4" convertible was selected to pace the 70th running of the Indianapolis 500. Convertible production totaled 7,315 units and each was recognized as an Indy Pace Car edition which came with the Pace Car decal package for dealer or customer installation. All 1986 convertibles also received the new aluminum cylinder heads which provided weight savings in addition to a slight bump in horsepower. The actual pace car and festival cars used at the track on race day were yellow with graphite leather interior. The pace car was driven by Chuck Yeager in 1986 and the race winner was Bobby Rahal. The car offered here is 1 of only 732 yellow cars, it's all original including the Goodyear VR50 "Gatorback" tires and has just 5,000 miles since new! It's the right color, it has the optional graphite leather sport seats and the rare 4+3 manual transmission. This is an investment quality example. Please call Tom or Dave at (407) 428-0116 for details. All cars are shown by appointment. Please be sure to call or email before visiting as we do not keep regular hours at our warehouse. Thanks for looking!
