The 1986 Chevrolet Corvette came out with a convertible 10 years after the previous offerings. The Chevrolet Corvette, known colloquially as the Vette, is a sports car manufactured by Chevrolet. The car has been produced through seven generations. The first model, a convertible, was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept show car. Myron Scott is credited for naming the car after the type of small, maneuverable warship called a corvette. Originally built in Flint, Michigan and St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette is currently manufactured in Bowling Green, Kentucky and is the official sports car of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
The fourth generation Corvette was the first complete redesign of the Corvette since 1963. Regular fourth generation production began on January 3, 1983; the 1984 model year and delivery to customers began in March 1983. The 1984 model carried over the 350 cu in (5.7 L) L83 slightly more powerful (5 bhp) “Crossfire” V8 engine from the final 1982 third generation model. New chassis features were aluminum brake calipers and an all-aluminum suspension for weight savings and rigidity. The new one piece targa top had no center reinforcement. A new electronic dashboard with digital liquid crystal displays for the speedometer and tachometer was standard. Beginning in 1985, the 230 bhp (170 kW) L98 engine with tuned port fuel injection became the standard engine.
September 1984 through 1988 Corvettes offered a Doug Nash designed “4+3” transmission – a 4-speed manual coupled to an automatic overdrive on the top three gears. It was designed to help the Corvette meet U.S. fuel economy standards. Since 1981 (when it was last offered), a manual transmission returned to the Corvette starting with production in late-1984.
The car was upgraded with great looking new body work (if you like the 1980s style, you’ll love this), and, as it was in the 1980s, a serious technological upheaval with the now-standard VATS, vehicle anti-theft system. This reduced vehicle theft sevenfold, to less than one per cent. The instruments were all LCD and the cockpit had a futuristic feel which is a symbol of the technological progress if nothing else. The key features include: Doors Open, Hood Opens, Trunk Opens, Wheels Steer, Wheels Roll, Made of High Quality Diecast And Great Detail
This 1986 1/18 White AUTOart diecast model is a particularly special replica, made using the highest quality materials and showing off every tiny detail. This is a real joy for the serious enthusiasts among you.
