On C4 Corvettes, the first model year for RPO C68 Automatic Climate Control or “auto HVAC” as I say, was 1986. Today, even a Chevy Cruze has automatic air but back then, Corvette was one of the first GM vehicles to have it. Back then, as a cub reporter, covering Corvette for some car magazines, I remember the big deal GM made about this option.
That was then, this is now…in recent years, there’s been a lot of interest in restorations of early C4 Corvettes and one part restorers have been hard-pressed to find are the face plates for the 1986-1989 C4 Corvette control heads.
Zip Corvette has just introduced a C4 Corvette Electronic Climate Control Face Plate for the 1986-1989 Corvette Coupes and Convertibles with hardtops and C68 option. This new reproduction Corvette part includes factory push buttons and is finished with the correct texture and color. The part does not fit Convertibles equipped with soft tops only.
Zip Corvette’s electronic climate control face plate joins an existing line of early C4 Center-Stack Trim Parts including a face plate or the 1986-1989 manual HVAC control head, driver information center (DIC) lens covers for all C4s, center-stack cluster bezels for 1984-1989 Corvettes along with the digital dash switch plate face plate used in the 1984-1989 Corvettes.
In short, if you need replacement interior trim items for early C4 Corvettes, Zip Corvette is the place to find it.
