Model overview

Model description

1988 marked the 35th year of the Corvette, and Chevrolet celebrated with the C4 Corvette 35th Anniversary Edition. 2,050 Anniversary Editions sold, and it was very much a car of its time. It was finished in ready-for-Miami-Vice “Triple White” with white paint, white seating upholstery and door panels, white steering wheel, and white wheels. It even had white lettering. Contrasting all the brightness was a black roof panel and black windshield frame. Today, 35th Anniversary Corvettes command a significant premium in price over standard cars.

Other interior improvements and changes for the 1988 Corvette included new carpeted door sills and improved ventilation for coupes. 1988 Corvettes optioned with the 3.07:1 performance rear axle also had an improved muffler system that provided less restrictive airflow, resulting in a bump of 5 hp to 245 hp for so-optioned models. All other models still made 240 hp. That muffler was considered too loud for the convertible, so it didn’t come on ragtops with the 3.07 rear-end.

The Z51 and Z52 performance package models now included 17 x 9.5-inch wheels. The Z51 (coupe only) now came with larger front brake rotors and calipers, higher spring rates, and a finned power steering cooler for improved heat dissipation. In general, the suspension was modified to improve car control under hard braking. Chevy built about 30,000 Corvettes for the 1988 production year. A third of them were convertibles, while the roughly 20,000 remaining were coupes.
