This classic 1985 Chevy Corvette was photographed at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, a fitting location for America's Sportscar. This is a good driving Vette that is in overall good condition, showing average wear for its age. The exterior is finished in two-tone silver & gray base/clearcoat paint, a repaint of the original finish. The paint and body are in good shape with some imperfections, chip touch ups, and some paint damage at the nose near the headlamps. The interior features the original silver leather upholstery, dash and instruments. The power windows are functional left & right. The air conditioning blows cold, however the A/C compressor/clutch is a little noisy when running and will eventually need future service.

The dash is clean and straight, in great shape. The factory AM/FM Delco equalizer cassette stereo is also functional. The instrument cluster is working, but is somewhat dim. The original option data decal is still in place and legible. Under the hood is the 1st year Chevrolet Tuned-Port Fuel-Injected 350 V8. This strong engine would replace the problematic cross-fire injected 350 from the 1st year C4. This engine runs strong and needs some attention. The valve cover gaskets are leaking and there is oil leaking at the oil pan. The engine itself runs strong and cool in temperature. This powerplant is paired with the 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission

The undercarriage is in good condition. You can see where the oil has been leaking up front in the above photograph. The exhaust system shows well front to back as do the floorboards. The spare tire carrier is also in place. This Corvette sits right, riding on its factory 16-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 255/50ZR16 Goodyear Eagle HP radials all around. The glass is in good condition all around. The hatch stays open with its struts. The weatherstrip pieces around the window glass are in need of replacement. These are inexpensive. The door rubber and pillar rubber appears to be in exceptional condition throughout.

The glass targa top shows some typical frazzle of the finish. The plexiglass does this as it ages, it is still clean to see through and there are no cracks. It is overall weather tight. This is an overall solid Corvette that drives down the road good with plenty of power. The brakes work well and the steering feels good. This car will need some things attended to, such as the leaking valve covers and noisy A/C compressor/clutch, otherwise you can drive this car daily if desired. The original door panels are in good condition left and right, showing age.
