Market report for:

Chevrolet Corvettes 1984-1990

These corvettes are considered to be one of the best car for the money buys on the market today. The original purchase price of these cars exceeded thirty thousand dollars and they were hailed as world-class exotic cars competing with the finest cars of their day. The down side is high insurance rate as many drivers were not able to safely control these cars and the cars could out perform many drivers. Insurance statistics should that higher then average percentage of these cars will go off the road and hit things. This can be a very important consideration for some drivers.

1984 corvette, this first year of production for a new body style is the least valuable. This year has a reputation of a suspension that was improved in future years but can cause problems. What I have been told is that this poorer suspension manifests itself only at very high speeds well above any speed limit if you stay under 100 these cars drive fine.

Convertibles or roadsters as they are often called were introduced to the line with a Indy pace car in 1986 and as a regular option starting in 1987.

Aftermarket companies offered special high performance packages with Calloway and Greenwood being the most famous. Chevy itself offered the ZR1 package starting in 1990. If the special option is known by most people that good and the car will bring more money such as the two examples given above it few people know of the builder than it add only a small amount to the value.

Low mileage and an untouched original excellent condition car are the most desirable and command a premium price but a low mileage car that has had cosmetic work done to it does not get valued higher than its present condition warrants the lower mileage is not a factor.
