Here’s an interesting custom C4 Corvette we came across on the Facebook Marketplace.
This is said to be a privately-commissioned C4-1 conversion which features the rear fascia updated to resemble the tail lights on the early C1 Corvettes.
Many have tried to recreate the magic of the early Corvettes on later generations and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. But that’s not for us to decide here.
The classified ad states that five of these C4-1 “special editions” were built with this one being the #005 Corvette in the line-up. Other than the custom rear end and the white-wall tires, the C4 looks fairly stock. With only 26K miles on the odometer, it’s pretty clean and presents itself well.
The seller is asking for a premium price for the car at $25,000 which compares to current C4 ZR-1 and 1996 Grand Sport (driver) prices. A google search of the model shows a Red 1985 C4-1 that was offered for sale at Gateway Classics (ad expired, no price) and a White 1987 model hit Mecum’s Kissimmee auction back in 2016 that was a no-sale with a high bid of $15,000.
Nice, non-collector grade C4 Corvettes can be had for $5,000-$10,000 all day long so invest wisely!
