As a highlight of the third era of the American muscle cars, the Corvette had an impressive run; 1968 -1982. It was, therefore, apparent that the next release by GM would be cutting-edge. High expectations were rife with some Corvette enthusiasts anticipating a move to a mid-engine chassis to resemble the Italian exotics, while others expected the use of the Mazda’s rotary engine.

Upon release, however, the result was not quite as dramatic. Nonetheless, it was altogether a very uniquely designed car. Powering the rear wheels was a small block Chevy V-8. In its first run, it wrenched out a decent 205 hp. Later years saw the incorporation of a tuned port fuel-infusion system, resulting in further improvement in performance. The final result was a 375-hp ZR-1 ultra-high-performance Corvette.

So, what makes this model special? Simply put, there was no Corvette released in 1983. 1982 was the final year for the Third-era-Corvette. Speculations have circulated as to why Chevy chose to hold back in 1983. From the company’s perspective, tightening emission regulations (literally) required switching gears. Others claim that the quality glitches in the industrial facility were the reasons. Whatever explanation you subscribe to, no Corvette was commercially produced in 1983. Additionally, all models from that year were demolished apart from one. This is a white car that sits in the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky. This justifies the hype around the 1984 Chevy Corvette.
