1988 Chevrolet Corvette C4

1988 was the Corvettes 35th year anniversary and by that point approximately 900,000 examples had been produced. Except for restyled six-slot wheels, little changed on the Corvette. Option 17-inch wheels were available which were accompanied by P275/40ZR17 Goodyear Eagle GT tires. Chevrolet made modifications to the suspension system which were intended to improve control during hard braking. The brake components also received attention, including the use of thicker rotors. The 350 cubic-inch V8 was given a pair of modified aluminum cylinder heads. Total output was rated at 245 BHP with a torque rating of 345 lb-ft of torque.

Body styles included a hatchback coupe which listed at $29,480 and a Convertible which sold for $34,820. In total, Chevrolet produced just 7,407 Convertibles and 15,382 coupes.

While the postwar Baby Boom was in full swing, this was definitely not....

Corvette's Chassis Innovations Refined on the Race Track
