Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale has jumped at the opportunity to offer for sale, on consignment, this rare and unique 1986 Chevrolet C4 Corvette convertible with the Doug Nash 4+3 manual transmission. Smog equipment and tall final drive gear ratios were robbing cars of their true potential in the name of fuel savings in the 70's and 80's. The notion of manufacturers having to concede with mandates and regulations really took the wind out of people's sails and killed a small part of the thrill of owning a sports car. Manufacturers were trying desperately to deliver more smiles per gallon in the wake of having to increase miles per gallon. Enter the Doug Nash 4+3 transmission that offered a push button overdrive in the top 3 gears for fuel savings. While this transmission may not go down in the history books as a slam dunk invention, it can be preserved easily with basic fluid and filter maintenance. Powering this red convertible is an unmolested Chevy 350 cubic inch V8 and an unmolested manual transmission both with 101,750 miles. The C4 is an awkward car to get in and out of, convertible or not and the seats definitely take some abuse. So the owner made the choice to get the seats re-done in factory gray GM leather at a hefty cost. The result is some of the softest leather we've ever felt and the fit and finish on them is amazing. Other features include A/C, aluminum wheels, AM/FM/Bluetooth radio, anti-lock brakes, anti-theft system, manual convertible top, cruise control, leather interior, power brakes, power locks, power steering, power windows, power seats, tilt and telescoping wheel and traction control.
