Silver · LT1 350 V8 · 52,247 miles
Rare, distinctive, and powerful, this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition is a true custom standout that even has its fuel-injected V8 upgraded to go with its speedier appearance. So when you can pick up a special edition icon with added power and poise all for an affordable price then you know youre looking at something special. Chevrolet gave the C4 Corvette a grand sendoff in 96 with a limited edition model that will forever be a standout. The Sebring Silver paint is an instant attractor to Corvette people because they know its an exclusive color. Plus, the great care with this precious metal hue means youll impress casual onlookers with an attractive luster every time the sunshine hits it. So everyone knows this is something special even before they spot the Collector Edition badging. But theres much more than just the paint and heritage that grabs your attention. The addition of the Toledo Pro cowl hood (a $1,500 feature) adds instant aggression and further emphasizes the wedge shape we all love in these C4s. And those bright C6 Z06 style wheels add plenty of flair as they give us a sneak peek at the upgraded brake package. Plus, the tinted windows, dark glass targa roof, black door handles, smoked parking light lenses, and darkened taillight panel all come together to give this Corvette a well-coordinated dark side. The black leather inside continues the dark accents from the exterior. And just like any good limited edition Corvette, the interior nicely combines a sporty feeling with plenty of premium features. The revised C4 digital speedometer has matured into an interesting readout that looks good and works flawlessly. It comes loaded with power windows, power locks, power mirrors, power seats, electric rear defogger, control cruise, and dual airbags. Plus, the stereo system has been upgraded to a modern Pioneer CD/DVD/iPod head unit with remote. It runs the premium Focal speaker system and amplified 12-inch Alpine subwoofer. So you better believe you can still hear your favorite tuned loud-n-clear even when youre hitting triple-digit speeds with the targa roof out. And speaking of being open to the world, the automatic climate control is there to make sure you always stay as cool as you look behind the wheel. If youre going to get a C4, you want a later model like this, and the 350 cubic-inch LT1 V8 is the reason. The fuel-injected small-block has a legendary reputation for performance, reliability, and upgradability. In fact, you can see that this original powerplant has already been invested in for both style and performance. We love the way the SLP cold air intake shines with the rest of the upgraded components. Plus, a VMS mass air flow sensor and 58mm ported throttle body help unleash the full potential of this V8. With a fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, grippy Hankook Ventus V12 EVO, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, this is the full grand touring package. But no matter if youre a collector or a driver, what youll love the most is the optional F45 Selective Real Time Dampening suspension package. A forerunner to MagneRide in modern Corvettes, a computer uses current ride data to calculate the damping mode for optimum control. It can then individually adjust special shock absorbers every 10 to 15 milliseconds. 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! The sale comes complete with a car cover, owners manual, and a service manual. Its the low-mileage collectable and custom Corvette youve been waiting a long time to find, and if you hurry, it can be yours for a fantastic price. Call today!!!
