|Chevrolet Corvette Coupe 1984|
The year 1984 was a landmark one for America’s Sports Car. Production resumed after a yearlong hiatus at a new, state-of-the-art factory built specifically for the Corvette in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Corvette was as new as the plant that produced it, having enjoyed a full redesign for the first time in 15 years and featuring molded plastic rear bumpers and panels, advanced electronic instrumentation, and “uniframe” construction. Not surprisingly, it was Motor Trend magazine’s 1984 Car of the Year.
The 1984 coupe presented here was sold new by Taylor McCarty & Sons, Inc., of Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, to Robert J. Ottaviani, of nearby Camptown, on February 25, 1984. It was well-optioned with custom two-tone paint, a glass roof panel, power locks, a six-way power seat, Delco/Bilstein shocks, an engine oil cooler, the Z51 performance handling package, the Doug Nash “4+3” manual transmission, cruise control, a Delco-GM/Bose sound system, a rear-window defogger, and grey cloth adjustable sport bucket seats.
