C4s chassis had a problem, in that most of the design work was done expecting all C4s to be hard tops, or maybe T-tops, but a year or so before production marketing proclaimed they all had to be targa tops. Which lowered the characteristic frequency of the chassis below the desirable 40 Hz point. So they flex more than they should.
The Corvette team was determined to not get caught off guard like that again, and designed the C5 chassis as if they would all be convertibles.
At least that's what Chief Engineer Dave McLellan wrote in "Corvette From The Inside".
I would have to agree that its a little high. If it was completely stock, that's what brings the $$$, then its not too far off. But the chrome, glass etching and pinstriping are going to knock the price down in the long run.
anyone on here ever owned a later c4? thinking of maybe getting one in the spring and don't a whole ton about these cars and would like a few pointers on what to look out for and what to stay away from-any info is greatly appreciated thanks
