Bottom line, Corvettes are meant to be enjoyed year round, and this 1986 Chevrolet Corvette being sold by Classic Auto Mall is a ray of sunshine regardless of the weather.

Mellow Out With This Yellow 1986 Chevrolet Corvette

Almost 30,000 Corvettes were made in 1986, but according to the listing, less than 1,500 came painted in Yellow like this one. Although there are some flaws, this Corvette is a solid 10-footer, and it would look pretty good cruising down the road. The best part is that it still has the factory fan-blade-style 16-inch wheels to go along with the bone-stock factory look. Inside, there's a little wear on the seats, but the custom armrest does add a little extra style with the Corvette logo and checker flag pattern. Overall, the car shows very well considering it has logged close to 100,000 in its 33 years.

Under the hood, the C4 Corvettes use a 230-horsepower, 5.7-liter fuel-injected V8, and this car pairs that with a smooth-shifting four-speed automatic transmission. In base configuration, the 1986 Corvette had acceleration from 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds, which was pretty good for its day. If the bumper decal is to be believed, this Corvette is also equipped with the optional Z51 Performance Handling Package. Like its name suggests, this package was designed to improve the handling of the Corvette through the use of wider wheels and tires, higher-rated suspension, upgraded shocks and stabilizer bars, heavy-duty cooling and a quicker-ratio steering gear.

If you're looking for a clean, driver-quality C4 Corvette, this yellow 1986 Chevrolet Corvette being sold by Classic Auto Mall is priced right. It is currently being listed for $13,500, but you can click HERE to make an offer.
