1937 Bugatti Drophead
Chester Twp, NJ
Selling a 1995 Chevrolet Corsica. This is a RARE FULLY LOADED model: power windows/ door locks/ cruise control/ trunk release/ air/ auto transmission/ cycle wipers/ tilt wheel/ daytime running lights/ anti lock brakes.
The Corsica was Chevrolet's answer to the Honda Civic/ Toyota Corolla. It was produced from 1987 to 1996. Despite being a successful model (they sold well over a million units), GM decided to discontinue the car (and its counterpart- the Chevy Beretta) because they didn't want to make upcoming federal changes. TODAY, these cars are VERY rare and nice examples are even rarer.
HISTORY: This car was originally a Wisconsin Park District municipal vehicle (government) driven by a supervisor. I purchased it in a municipal auction in 2004. The car was repainted (the original paint was literally falling off) and immediately it was sent from Chicago to my sister in Los Angeles, where it remained until recently.
BODY: Being in southern California served this car well cause it never became a rust bucket like so many others. The car has NEVER been in an accident thus it has all of its original panels and glass. It has always been well maintained. It was only used sparingly as a second car. The UNDERBODY is also solid. Any impending rust issues were addressed. The underbody is something MOST sellers DON'T want you to see!!
ENGINE: This car has the gas saving 2.2 liter 4 cylinder. And it runs well!! This car only has an ORIGINAL 79,000 miles. In 2019, the head gasket was replaced/ radiator/ all hoses.
When the car returned back to Chicago it had many issues that had to be addressed and were done. Replaced: a new heater core/ fuel pump/ injectors/ fuel regulator/ fuel filter/ tires/ battery/ air recharged.
UPDATES: While in California the stock interior was upgraded to the rare upscale one and it does look better. The stock 14 inch tires were upgraded to the rare 15 inch Chevy alloy rims/ tires and as a result the car looks better and rides better. But best of all, this car has a DEALER INSTALLED DELUXE SUNROOF. Its deluxe because it has adjustable sunscreens built in. And it doesn't leak. Many Berettas had sunroofs whereas the Corsica didn't.
At some point my sister replaced the factory radio with an aftermarket one. HOWEVER, when the car returned, the aftermarket radio was gone and the original radio (with cassette player) does come with the car. I didn't reinstall it since the new owner would probably go with another aftermarket unit.
DISCRESSIONS: The 19 year old paint does show wear in sections. There are also small indentations on the body. But this isn't a new car, its still almost 30 years old and even with minor ailments it STILL presents itself well. And everything works!!
Overall this is a good looking, good running, reliable car that would make a nice second car/ commuter car. It would also serve a student/ new / or young driver well. With proper care, a Corsica will EASILY last at least 200 thousand miles, so this car is set up for many more years and miles of service.
Selling for $5750 or best offer. PREFER the car be seen in person to be truly appreciated. NOT INTERESTED in "lowballers"/ junior brokers. I'm NOT a money desperate seller either.
