The 5.7-liter L98 V8 engine features Tuned Port Injection.  The powerplant was factory rated at 240 horsepower and 345 lb.-ft. of torque, though this car has had a chip installed to increase power output.  The V8 drives the rear wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission.  Most recent oil change was in Autumn 2023, the car has been driven under 50 km.  The owner believes it will pass Ontario safety as it sits, unless tire age affects servicing shop’s endorsement of the car.  There are underside photos included in the gallery.  Base price for the ’87 Corvette convertible was $34,122 before any options.
