1985 Corvettes aren’t really known for their collectability (yet) and with 39,729 produced during the C4’s second year of production, there’s a lot of supply out there without much demand.

Trading something that you are no longer using or don’t have a need for could be a great way to get into a Corvette. Especially when you may not have the cash necessary to buy one outright.
