The Exterior

The 1984 Chevy C4 Corvette sports car was a groundbreaking vehicle that featured an exterior that was vastly different from its predecessors. It had a sleek and streamlined design, with a bold new look that signaled a departure from the traditional look of the classic Corvette.

Brakes and Wheels

The brakes on the vehicle are disc on all four wheels, but the components are new and supplied by Girlock of Australia.

The 1984 Corvette marked a breakthrough in automobile technology with its implementation of plastic leaf springs on the front and back axles.

The 1984 Interior

The interior of the car was also redesigned, with a focus on ergonomics and comfort. The dashboard and instrument cluster were repositioned to provide better visibility and easier access to controls. The seats were more supportive, with additional bolstering to provide more lateral support for aggressive cornering.

Standard features on the electronics were digital readouts for engine monitoring and liquid crystal graphic displays for speed and engine revolutions. An analog instrumentation system was not available.

A dashboard for passengers was featured on the 1984 Corvette. It was created as part of a passive restraint system because the designers thought it would be federally mandated. The Reagan Administration let go of restraint proposals, but the Corvette pad stayed.
