The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!


The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.


Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is now featuring a rarely seen 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Coupe! Featuring an eye-catching color combo and powerful drivetrain, this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is not only a very appealing ride, but also has some serious historical significance. It proudly stands as the last offering of Corvettes Fourth Generation - a class that became known for its inspired style and engineering and served Chevy well for a dozen years - and will pull into its next lucky owners garage with a couple nice upgrades as well. As the 1996 model year was approaching, Chevy decided to mark the occasion by giving its well-respected fourth generation Corvettes a proper send off and created a commemorative model for the occasion: the Grand Sport. This specimen benefits from a number of styling cues featured exclusively on this special edition, including its Admiral Blue color with the broad white stripe running the length of its hood and deck lid, and the pair of red hash marks decorating its driver side fender. Fourth generation Vettes were renowned for their sleek, modern shape, which is very much in evidence here - stylistically speaking, this just doesnt look like a model that greeted the public more than 20 years ago. Its removable top configuration is a great plus, offering you the chance to easily transition from open air motoring to a more insulated experience with noticeably less wind noise than youd experience with a more conventional vinyl drop top. The vibrant color is a great highlight to this Corvettes aerodynamic form, drawing you in closer to see a car thats also still well-aligned and very road-ready in appearance. Fittingly, for a car universally known as one of the few true American sports cars, the interior is noticeably driver-centric - though your willing passengers will also be happy with its array of creature comforts. The black leather bucket seats have integrated head rests and are bolstered for strong support while carving corners - an activity that will almost certainly make its way into your daily routine with this Vette. Climb into the drivers seat and that short-throw shifter sits within very easy reach, beckoning you to put this beauty through its paces. Whether its a jaunt through a canyon or more routine motoring, your comfort and convenience will be looked after, with air conditioning thats in good form, cruise control, a tilt column, and power seats, windows and door locks. An AM/FM/CD/cassette system sits in the dash to cover your audio needs. Driver and passenger side airbags afford an added measure of safety should the unforeseen happen. Everything looks straight and clean in back, and youll likely be left with the impression that theres more storage space behind the seats than you would have expected. While its been more than 20 years since this Chevy rolled off the line, its seen only 87,779 miles, and one of the key beneficiaries of that light usage is its strong and smooth-running drivetrain. A 5.7-liter LT4 V8 sits underneath the hood is the Vettes foundation, and its been augmented from factory specs with a GM hot cam and Ed Wright performance chip. Good for 330 horsepower from the factory, now pushing 389 at the rear wheels (est over 400 at the engine). It fires right up, runs with all the smoothness youd look for in a frequent driver and is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission with Centerforce clutch and great sounding Corsa exhaust to provide a supreme driving experience. This great example of the Corvettes proud automotive legacy rides on a set of special-edition, black 17 Grand Sport wheels, outfitted with Goodyear Eagle tires. Lightly-used, special edition performance cars like this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport dont come along very often. Call today!
