Tuned port was optional that year but they're very good engines with tons of bottom end torque

Instead of moving the window up and down and expecting it to get better, take the door panel off, clean and lubricate everything inside.

Geez most of you people have no idea you can spend 3-5x the price of a very clean example on parts alone, and itll still never be right. Nothing but further headaches, the whole wiring harness needs replacing its enormous. The weatherstripping package is about 4k. Seats are costly and any used you can source will need new molded foam before u can reupholster forget all the air pump shit ever working. See my username 86 z51 coupe owned it 27 years put 170k miles on it never even scratched the paint despite a few 140mph po po chases. When i got older and slowed down i put a $40k stereo in it won my division IASCA SoCal SQ+ competition. (1998) Great cars not terribly reliable. Tires unobtanium in stock size now. The one in this clip, tpi is a good thing crossfire was crap. Part it out they made 50k in 86 lots more out there.

Oh and while the body panels are 'glas (smc actually) they attach to the subframe with plain steel embedded hardware so when that rusts they fly off at speed.

The 1985 Corvette came with a Tuned-Port Fuel Injected L98 V8 Engine (350 Cubic Inch and 230 Horsepower) ...
You also need to change the plugs in mediately and probably the plug wires and cap and rotor yeah the fuel injectors are probably clogged to the max
Well the first thing I would have done before I even brought it in the shop was wash all of the shit off of it so you can see and not contaminate any worse than it is then shop vac the leaves debris in the whole interior after removing the seats

Is there any financial sense of doing a full rebuild on this 1985 Corvette? It seems as if every component will need to be worked on. Interior, Exterior, Enginer, Transmission, Electrical. What is a 1985 Corvette with an automatic worth? $5,000 $6,000. Certainly no more than that. Why put the expense of rebuilding this car when it seems as if the final product will be worth far less than the cost of rebuilding?

The worst vet ever made. I worked in a Chevy dealership when they first came out and they were junk I quit after 6 months of working on these vets only there were so many issues. If someone gave me this vet I'd refuse delivery.

This is the heart of Corvette for 1985. A tuned-port fuel-injected 5.7 Liter V8. With a Bosch hot-wire meter that measures with computer accuracy the mass of the air intake to optimize performance regardless of altitude, humidity, barometric pressure and ambient temperature.

You don't NEED an obd1 gm jumper tool or piece of wire, yeah, it's the cheapest way, but a OBD1 or OBD1/OBD2 scanner will work and believe it or not, even provide a live data stream. Yes it is basic, but so is the car.

CHECK FUEL LINE PRESSURE WITH PRESSURE GAUGE....because 15psi and 29psi looks identical to the human eye and squirts out of the fuel rail the same way too. and 15psi isnt enough to start that car. MY TAKE? Clogged exhaust, clogged injectors and a bad TPS. SHES RUNING A FIRST GENERATION ALDL (assembly line diagnoistic link) OBD 1 , Diagnostic protocol, just jump the two adjacent pins with a paper clip and count the 2 digit codes.
