Base Corvette Sport Coupe (1YY07)

  • The base price of the 1989 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe without any optional equipment.
  • A 350 cubic inch, 240/245 horsepower engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, removable body-color roof panel, and cloth seats were included in the base price.
  • Engine power remained at 240hp for 1989 models except for coupes with 3.07:1 axle ratios which had 245hp. The 5hp increase came from less restrictive mufflers which were deemed too loud for convertibles and 2.59:1 axle coupes.
  • Seats were restyled, but the three choices of cloth, optional leather, or optional sports leather continued to be offered. Due to weight and fuel economy factors, Chevrolet intentionally limited sales of the sports leather seats by making them available exclusively with Z-51 optioned models during the 1989 model year.

Base Corvette Convertible (1YY67)

  • The base price of the 1989 Corvette Convertible without any optional equipment.
  • A 350 cubic inch, 240 horsepower engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, collapsible soft top, and cloth seats were included in the base price.
  • Seats were restyled, but the three choices of cloth, optional leather, or optional sports leather continued to be offered. Due to weight and fuel economy factors, Chevrolet intentionally limited sales of the sports leather seats by making them available exclusively with Z-51 optioned models during the 1989 model year.

Power Passenger Seat (AC1)

  • Optional, six-way, adjustable passenger seat.

Power Driver Seat (AC3)

  • Optional, six-way, adjustable driver seat.

Sports Seat, Leather (AQ9)

  • Special sport seats that featured inflatable lumbar support and power-adjusted side bolsters
  • The AQ9 sports seats were only available when ordered with RPO Z51.

Base Seats, Leather (AR9)

  • Leather cover option for the standard, base driver and passenger seats.

Callaway Twin Turbo (not GM installed) (B2K)

  • Addition of Callaway Twin Turbos to the existing L98 engine.
  • This option generated a specific equipment build with standard engines at the Corvette assembly plant. The cars were then drop-shipped to Callaway’s Connecticut shop for installation of Callaway-modified twin-turbo engines.
  • This is not a factory installed option. The Callaway Corvette could be ordered through participating Chevrolet dealers. Fully assembled Corvettes were then shipped from the Bowling Green Corvette plant to Callaway Engineering in Old Lyme, Connecticut, where it received engine (and other) modifications.
  • The 1988 Callaway Corvette had performance ratings of 382 horsepower and 562 lb.-ft torque.
  • Automatic transmissions (reworked truck Turbo Hydramatic 400s) were available for $6500.00
  • Either Z51 or Z52 suspensions could be specified. Later production with Z52 had Z51’s larger front brakes, less restrictive mufflers, longer air dams, and steering coolers because option B2K triggered these through Special Equipment Option Z5G.
  • Full Chevrolet warranty applied except for powertrain which was covered by Callaway for twelve months or 12,000 miles.

Radiator Boost Fan (B4P)

  • An oscillating fan placed in front of the radiator that is used to push air through the radiator.

Auxillary Hardtop (convertible) (CC2)

  • An optional, removable hardtop.
  • This option was new for the 1989 Corvette Convertible.

Dual Removable Roof Panels (coupe) (C2L)

  • Included both a tinted, transparent glass top and a painted top.

Removable Roof Panels, blue tint (coupe) (24S)

  • Blue tinted removable glass top.

Removable Roof Panels, bronze tint (coupe) (64S)

  • Bronze tinted removable glass top.

Electronic Air Conditioning Control (C68)

  • Air conditioning system electronic control unit.

Twin Remote Heated Mirrors (convertible) (DL8)

  • Driver and passenger side heated rear view mirrors.
  • This option was only available for Corvette convertibles.
  • The heated mirrors were included with the heated rear window in the Z6A defogger option for coupes.

Illuminated Driver Vanity Mirror (D74)

  • The driver side sun visor included a lighted vanity mirror.

Selective Ride & Handling, Electronic (FX3)

  • Electronically controlled suspension with manual ride selection.
  • FX3 provided three variations of suspension control regulated by a console switch.
  • It could only be ordered when RPO Z51 was also ordered.
  • Although all FX3 equipped Corvettes were Z51’s, they featured the same springs and stabilizers that were used on 1987 & 1988 Corvettes equipped with the Z52 option. The Z52 springs and stabilizers provided for a greater range of suspension control.
  • The only exceptions were the sixty Corvettes built for the Challenge race series which had FX3 suspensions with the Z51 springs and stabilizers.

Performance Axle Ratio (G92)

  • Optional performance axle ratio of 3.07:1.
  • Was only offered when the Corvette was ordered with an automatic transmission.
  • The actual “Performance Axle Ratio” varied from year to year. The G92 Option was available when ordering either the Corvette or the Camaro throughout the 1980’s and early ’90’s.

Engine Oil Cooler (KC4)

  • Internal cooler used to cool internal components of the automobile’s internal combustion engine.

6-Speed Manual Transmission (MN6)

  • An optional, no-cost, 6-speed manual transmission.
  • The six-speed manual transmission was designed jointly by ZF (Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen) and Chevrolet and was initially built by ZF in Germany.
  • A computer-aided gear selection feature bypassed second and third gears (and locked out fifth and sixth) for improved fuel economy when a series of low performance criteria were met.

California Emission Requirements (NN5)

  • Revised emission/exhaust components to meet California Emission standards

Low Tire Pressure Warning Indicator (UJ6)

  • Low tire/air pressure monitoring and warning system.
  • The low tire pressure warning indicator system was originally announced in 1987, but the option was suspended due to technical issues that negatively affected its functionality.
  • Sensors strapped to each side of the inside of each wheel sent a radio signal to a instrument-panel receiver if pressure in any tire dropped below a preset limit.

Stereo System, Delco-Bose (UU8)

  • Delco Bose AM/FM stereo radio with cassette.

Heavy-Duty Radiator (V01)

  • Optional, three (3) core aluminum radiator.
  • Includes larger diameter transmission cooler.

Luggage Rack (convertible) (V56)

  • Optional luggage rack that was mounted to the rear decklid of the Corvette convertible

Performance Handling Package (coupe) (Z51)

  • Heavy Duty Steering and Suspension Upgrade for improved handling.
  • The Z51 option included RPO B4P Radiator Boost Fan, RPO KC4 Engine Oil Cooler, RPO V01 Heavy Duty Radiator, heavy duty suspension and a fast steering ratio.
  • The option continued in the 1989 Corvette, and remained available only in coupes equipped with a manual transmission.
  • Leather sports seats were only available as part of the Z51 option in 1989.
