1988 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Hatchback Coupe
1988 Chevrolet Corvette 35th Aniversary, 5.7L TPI 4+3 Manual, Original 33k Mi!
Up for sale this week, Canyon State Classics brings to market a beautiful, low mileage 1988 Chevrolet Corvette 35th Anniversary Coupe from one of our local consignors. This gorgeous Corvette features one of the most highly sought after color combinations of white with white interior and a Targa top. Of the over 22,789 Corvettes produced in 1988, only 2,050 Z01 35th Anniversary cars were made in this color and option combination, and out of that ONLY 180 WERE 4+3 MANUAL EQUIPED! This car has been loved since new with only 33,000 original miles. This Corvette has always been garaged and is in excellent condition, having just undergone a complete inside and out detail and paint correction. The car was just completely gone through front to back with lots of recent maintenance performed. The car just received a full fluid service after 15+ years in storage!
Available only in coupe form, this $4,795 option was distinguished by a two-tone exterior color treatment of White paint with a Black roof bow. In addition to matching White leather on the seats and steering wheel rim, the car also incorporated special interior and exterior accents, a console-mounted 35th anniversary plaque, special emblems and other distinguishing features.
More than just a cosmetic treatment, the Z01 package also included sport seats with power driver's seat, electronic air-conditioning control, an illuminated driver's vanity mirror, rear window and driver's-side mirror defog. The 35th Anniversary was the best handling Corvette available thanks to the Z51 Sports Handling Package, which featured the largest wheels ever seen on a production Corvette – newly styled 17x9.5-inch aluminum wheels with 12 cooling slots, mounting P275/40ZR17 performance radial tires. The Z51 package also incorporated higher spring rates, special Delco-Bilstein shock absorbers, a finned external power steering cooler and larger front brake calipers and rotors for increased stopping power.
The following is a list of options as this Corvette is currently equipped:
-5.7L Tuned Port Injection L98 V8
-4+3 Manual transmission
-Original white alloy wheels
-New General sports tires
-Original AM/Fm Cassette with Delco/Bose speakers
-Automatic climate control
-Flip up headlamps
-Factory dual power sport seats
The exterior on the car is absolutely stunning. It boasts the most desirable white on white color combination for a Corvette, of which only 2050 were built in 1988 only. The paint is gorgeous and looks awesome. The original top looks sexy in gloss black, with zero discoloration or wear visible. The car is all original paint and has never been hit or damaged. The body is straight as an arrow with not a single ding. The tires were replaced in the summer of 2021 and only have a few hundred miles on them.
The interior is in incredible shape as it should be being a low mileage pampered car. The supple leather seats are still very nice and look great for being 33 years old. The dash surfaces are in great shape as well as the carpet throughout. The original Delco/Bose sound system with AM/FM cassette still sounds great!
Mechanically, this C4 runs great. Within the past few months, all spark plugs and wires have been replaced. The car also just had a fresh full synthetic oil change and a fresh battery was installed. This car is smooth and luxurious, but with the stomp of your foot you can unleash all the power of the big V8. The highlight of this car is what lurks under the hood. The motor provides ample power to move the car around and will easily smoke the tires if you are not careful. The motor has been detailed and looks very presentable. All in all, this is one of the nicest Corvettes I have had on consignment, and I'm proud to pass it on to its next owner. These 4th generation Corvettes are just starting to become prized by collectors, and this example is a super clean, low mileage car...how can you go wrong?
