  • What's New for 1990

    King-of-the-hill ZR-1 appears with aluminum DOHC 32-valve, 5.7-liter V8 built by Mercury Marine. ZF six-speed transmission is standard on ZR-1, as is blistering performance and ultra-wide rear wheels. ZR-1 is distinguished by unique rear-body work. All Corvettes get a driver airbag and ABS. New dashboard debuts with several analog gauges and a real glovebox. Base Corvettes get five additional horsepower. The radiator is sloped for better cooling. Seventeen-inch alloys are lighter-weight. A 200-watt sound system with cassette or CD player is available.

After 18 years...still a great

Vehicle: 1990 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Convertible

After 18 years, still a "eye catcher" and one fast machine! Approx. 122k miles with no major repairs! Best performance car I've owned! If you want a great looking, fast and a joy to drive find yourself a C4 Vette! Handles great and lots of torque!

I purchased this Corvette for fun and it has certainly not disappointed. While a bit tight to get into and out of, you can't drive it without a smile on your face. Power is adequate, not mind boggling. Handling is great. Convertible top, though manual, goes up and down with ease.

Bought it new and store it every winter. It is completely original down to the tires. Each spring is a kick in the pants when it is brought out of the garage. The 6 speed shifts smoothly and easily tops 100 in 3rd. On trips it always gets at least 28 miles per gallon. What more could you ask for...and when I bought it there was a $10k factory incentive so it only cost $28k new. WOW!!

I own an 87 Corvette - only 30,000 miles on it - runs like a new car, performs like a race car. Chev was right at the top of their game. IT's a joy to work on, modify and lots of stuff to buy to make it even better... cheap to buy used, and cheap to modify to stellar levels [compared to other high po cars]. No problems, except the alarm system.
