1996 was the final year for the legendary C4 Chevrolet Corvette. So there's no better way to celebrate this important classic than with the official Collector Edition model. And this rare drop-top is both highly original and loaded. So it makes for a terrific collectible sports car that's ideal for true driver enjoyment.
Corvette people know that Sebring Silver is a special color. Named after the famous racetrack, it was only available in the C4 on the Collector Edition. In fact, it was only offered one other time before this: launching the C2 Corvette in '63. It's this kind of significance that is why this convertible still wears its factory application with pride. Overall, the way everything shines and fits together so well will make it hard to believe the actual mileage on the odometer (the value price is really the only clue.) And we especially like that this Collector Edition has crossed the quarter-century threshold to make it a true classic that's eligible for classic car registration in many states. Special five-spoke alloys and nice dark touches (including the good-looking roof) make for quite an all-around attractive Corvette.
If you like the way the black rood looks against the silver exterior, then you're going to love that there's a factory black interior, too. It also adds to the rarity. While there were less than 1,400 Collector Edition convertible, this color combo narrows that further to about one in 475 ever! This car has been treated with respect, but it has been enjoyed over the last 25 (after all, Corvettes were made to be driven.) And you'll appreciate the high degree of originality, right down to the Collector Edition logo embroidered in the leather seats. As you look over the whole interior, you'll not only be impressed with the level of preservation but also how loaded a modern classic can be. You get power windows, power locks, power mirrors, an electric rear defogger, dual airbags, and a powerful Bose AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo system. Plus, with the automatic climate control, you can take the roof down and enjoy open-top motoring without breaking a sweat. But more than just loaded with the best luxuries, this is a true driver's machine. The power driver's seat gets you in that perfect position, and the later C4's instruments are the ideal race-ready mix of analog and digital.
More than just better gauges, the later C4s also meant the 350 cubic-inch LT1 V8... and this fuel-injected small block was worth the wait. Rated at 300 horsepower from the factory, this has the stock and well-maintained look seen on the rest of the car. So it fires up runs with the eager growl you love in a classic Vette. This is heightened further by the fully independent performance suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy ZR-rated tires. But more than just an all-out speed machine, the four-speed automatic transmission w/ overdrive, power steering, and cruise control make this a great anytime classic.
The sale comes with the owner's manual, service manuals, and maintenance records. This is a rare opportunity at a rare Collector Edition convertible that's also affordable. Don't miss out, call today!
