1987 Chevrolet Corvette Callaway Callaway Cars Inc. is an American specialty vehicle manufacturer and engineering company that designs, develops and manufactures high performance product packages for cars, pickup trucks and SUVs. They specialize in Corvettes and GM vehicles. New GM vehicles are delivered to Callaway facilities where these special packages and components are installed. Then the vehicles are delivered to GM new car dealers where they are sold to retail customers, branded as Callaway. Callaway Cars is one of four core Callaway Companies. For consignment, a low mileage (15,709), high performance twin turbo B2K 1987 Callaway Corvette Convertible. Beautifully bathed in black this is #104 of a total 184 produced in this model year. The interior still smells new, and the exterior is looking like a deep dive into the deep end of the pool. A very nice canvas convertible top I feel much like I\'m in a time warp and I arrived in 1987, at a top speed of 170mph. Exterior Menacing black fiberglass which is near in showroom condition shows nicely on this sculpted car. All black for the trimmings coves, top, and just all over, even the door handles and mirrors. A long hood with hidden headlights and dual intake coves races rearward to the raked back windscreen. This allows the car to slip through any air resistance with top up or down. Large exhaust tops on either side sneak a peek out from under the rear roll pan, and this car rolls on 16-inch BBS woven snowflake pattern wheels. Encore please...read on! Interior For our second act we will lower the top to gain a panoramic view of the black leather interior. The consigner states this car still smells like new and ya know what? He\'s right! Wonderfully aged and very smooth leather covered buckets sit on either side of the square and rectangle black console that races to the dash. In the bolsters are all the buttons needed to get it just right baby bear. A black dash also in square and rectangle design sports all digital gauges and an analog odometer reading that paltry 15k miles. Black carpeting with just a bit of smudging is seen under the drivers feet, but it\'s clean and tear free for the rest of carpeting throughout. A fairly standard dash, save for the Callaway boost gauge in dash central. Next to this is a Sony 10-disc CD controller, a 500W factory amp, and a built in radar detector to keep the po po out of your pocket. APPLAUSE! Drivetrain A factory 350ci V8 was shipped off to Callaway for the addition of the Twin Turbos that now are on top. EFI helps with this air pushing, and a Doug Nash 4 plus 3 manual transmission is now on. A 3.07 rear axle spins the tires and smokes them too if you like. All this extra horsepower adds up to 365, allows for a 0-60 time in 5 eye blinks and puts out 465ftlbs of torque. Or you could just say a top speed of 170mph, now where are you going to top that?? Undercarriage Underneath is very clean and very ground effect aero paneled. No rust and cast aluminum suspension parts aplenty. Power disc brakes bring you to an abrupt halt or slow you down when you get a heads up from the radar detector. Drive-Ability Obviously extra performance does not hurt, but mix this with low mileage, leather interior, and the Callaway option and we have a screamer of a black \'Vette. All good save for the passenger window giving us trouble and not moving, and the stereo as we were not able to coax any sound out of it. A low mileage not often seen Callaway Corvette, with Twin Turbos, and low miles. A serious car for a discriminating Corvette Collector, or the guy who just wants to go out and kick some ass and look great doing it. Visit the hallowed halls for this black beauty, and make it quick, because it will probably go out the door as fast as our test drive took us on the track. YIKES!
