This 1996 Chevrolet Corvette convertible comes in an and rare awesome color combo, but that's just the beginning of the desirability. It's a low-mileage two-owner car with ALL the sought-after features, including the LT4 V8, six-speed manual transmission, an accessory hardtop, and the F45 adjustable suspension. So this is an ideal collectible and driver.
It's the final year for the C4 Corvette, and Chevrolet did a fantastic job of evolving this sleek sports car. The long hood with flat front end made this look like it was out to cheat the wind, and this flush-fitting sleekness followed all the lines of the car, right down to the gas filler flap. That's why the C4, and especially the convertible, always has embodied what a speedy machine should be. There's even performance in the paint with a name like Competition Yellow. The vivid color looks to be the factory application, and it continues to have a terrific shine you want well-respected classic that has averaged under 700 miles annually. The darkness of the black roof and luggage rack look particularly good against the yellow. And for true distinction, this also comes with a color-matched hardtop. And since the '96 car was also the debut of the C4 Grand Sport, this one pays tribute with the GS fender flares and upgraded wheels.
For the same reason dark exterior accents are attractive against the exterior yellow, you're going to love taking down the top to show off the black leather interior. And such low mileage means everything appears and feels quite fresh. But more than just the way this one looks, you'll love it because a modern classic provides all the features you want. It includes power seats, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, and the premium AM/FM/CD stereo with Bose speakers. And it's always great to have a convertible with cold-blowing air conditioning. But what will really excite you about this C4 is how much this is a driver's machine. The stick shift feels confident in your hands, and the mix of digital and analogue gauges give the feeling of piloting a jet fighter.
When shopping for a final-year C4, collectors go looking for the red cover on the motor. That's the sign of the optional 350 cubic-inch LT4 V8. The 330 hp engine boasted a number of improvements, including high flow fuel injectors, higher compression, and a completely revised valvetrain (including performance cam.) The result was the speedy fun you always knew was hiding in the sleek lines. With such a desirable upgrade, we are glad to see this original powerplant looking so correct under the hood. It's all correct right down to the red Grand Sport tag that reminds you that only the best got the LT4. With a fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, grippy ZR tires, and the full control from the six-speed manual transmission, this is an impressive performance package. But no matter if you're a collector or a driver, you'll love the optional F45 Selective Real Time Damping suspension package. This did not find many takers in 1996 because it was one of the most expensive options on the list...but this one has it!
