1987 C4 Boergermann

A very nice, low mileage, C4.  ONLY 31,890 showing on the ticker.  Current (2nd.) owner forced to sell due to physical issues getting in & out of the car. 

By 1987, the C4 Corvette had come into its own. The suspension had sorted itself out and was a good ride/handling compromise rather than a torture chamber. Lessons learned from the convertible's structural updates, particularly those forward of the front cowl, were found to be beneficial to the coupe and became part of the production of all Corvettes. A new "Sport Handling Package" suspension option (RPO Z52; $470.00) was less stiff than the racetrack designed Z51 selection and thus more appropriate for street use. Efforts to improve quality control and reliability continued, resulting in real benefits for the Corvette buyers.  Wheels for 1987 were painted Argent Gray in the center section and radial slot areas.  Wind deflectors on the side mirrors were part of all 1987 convertibles.
