Chevrolet Corvette 1984-2008

LOTS and LOTS of affordable Corvettes here, with more destined to arrive following changes to the Motor Vehicle Standards Act.

Values for 1984-96 cars have increased during the past five years; growing appeal due in large part to late-1980s cars not needing RHD conversion to achieve full registration.

Six-speed manual cars are generally regarded as superior to the earlier ‘4+3’ manual models.

Corvette’s first major post-C4 styling shift came in 1997 and these cars, again due to compliance costs, are hard to find and relatively expensive.

Anyone contemplating a spend of around $100K will be better off with a post-2004 model and preferably the feisty, 7.0-litre Z06.

Coupe/Roadster 1984-87 $25,600 [44]

Coupe/Roadster 1988-96 $31,760 [32] 

ZR-1  1990-94 $85,000 [1]

Coupe/Roadster 1997-04 $70,000 [4]

Coupe/Roadster 2005-08 $114,240 [8]
