This super C5 is ripe for the picking. In 2006 when the C6 come on the scene, many C5 Z06 owners quickly traded their car in for the C6, flooding the market with used examples and driving down their prices.

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!


Classic Car Overview

HIGHLIGHTS: Clean, 72k-mile, rare Collector Edition 1996 Corvette! LT1 V8, auto transmission, great weekend driver! BODY OVERVIEW: The exterior is in nice original condition; exactly the condition one would expect for a well-maintained 72,000 mile car that has seen some road use. Sitting on the special Collectors Edition wheels, this Corvette looks right! PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This Corvette is finished in the correct color Sebring Silver paint. There are some minor, normal signs of wear as would be expected, but the condition is pleasantly surprising for a Corvette of this vintage. Its hard to say if this car has been repainted or not, but if it has been it was a job well done. Though the body paint and targa-top paint are both in good overall condition, the targa top itself does have some defects along the edges as shown in the photos. INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is in condition consistent with the condition of the rest of the car. There are minimal defects and wear consistent with casual use. Additionally, being a final-year C4 this car has perhaps the most refined interior available in a C4 and is equipped with airbags. It is hard to believe that this car was based on a 12 year old design! The seats are comfortable and everything seems to work as it should. While there is some mild creasing in the leather from use, this can be expected of any car this age that has been driven. Nonetheless, the interior is in impressive condition-even the plastics! MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a 5.7 liter LT-1 V8 hooked up to a 4 speed 4L60 transmission. While the LT-4 was also an available option, the LT-1 provides strong, reliable, and adequate power. This is the perfect car for carefree cruising! The engine runs smoothly and the car handles well. It drives just as youd expect a 72k-mile 1996 Corvette to! WHAT YOULL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The overall condition and the relative rarity combined with an affordable price point! WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Theres not much to dislike! If youre looking for a 100% documented, show-winning car, this probably isnt it. This one is one to be driven! DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The A/C could definitely use a recharge. The compressor works and the blower works, but the air isnt cold. Additionally, the tires are showing their age and should be replaced. WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This is a great example of an uncommon Corvette in largely original condition. With Grand Sport prices soaring, this Collectors Edition is tremendous value for the money. What buyer is looking for this car? To quote a 1996 MotorTrend article: Just dont let us hear that youve got one of these road weapons polybagged in an Arizona garage. This car was made to be driven.
