1986 Corvette Convertible
For 1986 the Corvette Convertible returned to the lineup and served as the pace car for the 1986 Indy 500. All 1986 Corvette Convertibles were delivered with an “Official Pace Car” decal that the owner could install. For 1987 the 350 V8 increased to 240 horsepower and a new Z52 handling package was available. The 35th Anniversary Edition became available for 1988, sporting white paint, white leather interior, a white leather steering wheel and white wheels. Chevrolet’s Selective Ride Control System became an option for 1989 with Touring, Sport and Competition modes, and a fiberglass hardtop was made available for the convertible.
