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

Considering all of the American classic muscle cars in the world, none come to mind that are more adored than the Corvette. Every one of Chevys fantastic-plastic sports cars have an eager and enthusiastic following and cars like this 24,713 original mile 1996 Corvette coupe will always be an A-list choice for collectors. And with only 320 cars made in this rare color combination, this incredibly well-preserved piece should easily top that list. 1996 was the final year of C4 production, and while GM rolled out some special edition cars, few were as appealing as this rare-colored Dark Purple Metallic coupe. A non-Grand Sport, non-Collectors Edition coupe with an automatic and the 5.7L LT1 engine is a relatively rare bird all by itself, and someone obviously felt that it deserved to be preserved for posterity. Vivid colors like Dark Purple Metallic never goes out of style course, and gives the Corvette an appropriate look thats practically legendary. With the exception of some small marks in the clear coat from numerous washes through the years, the car is in remarkable condition considering the age. Traveling just over 24,000 miles probably means this one might have never seen inclement weather and like many Corvettes, probably had a very easy life as a collector vehicle rather than a daily driver. Build quality was very good on these final C4s and it shows throughout this one, which looks like it should cost thousands more than it does. Inside you find an equally well-preserved cabin. The gray leather seats show well and are as supportive as they were in 1996. Real leather was used and has held up well, particularly in a coupe, and the purple-on-gray combination is pretty hard to beat. The carpets, dashboard and frankly everything your eyes see or hands touch is in very good shape, again indicative of a car that was properly maintained and very seldom used. All the gauges are fully functional, and the combination of digital and analog instruments is not only cool, but surprisingly easy to read. You may also have noticed that we almost ran out of room listing all the features these cars carried as standard equipment, including automatic climate control, power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, a trip computer, cruise control, and a great-sounding AM/FM/Cassette/CD stereo system fitted in the center. And it is all fitted inside a cabin that wraps around you like a cockpit and your hand rests comfortably on the shifter, which is connected to a slick-shifting 4-speed automatic transmission. The 1996 Corvettes used the final variant of the venerable 350, called the LT1 and generating an impressive (for 1996 anyway) 300 horsepower. Mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission, power flows to the wheels seamlessly, and explosive acceleration is only a prod of your right foot away, making this perhaps the ultimate point-and-shoot machine. The engine bay is practically showroom fresh, suggesting expert care and a distinct lack of foul-weather driving, and despite how modification-friendly these cars are, this one is completely stock. The suspension is capable and by 1996 it was no longer rock hard so this roadster makes for a fine grand-touring machine thats competent without being on edge all the time. Powerful brakes, complete with ABS and traction control, are a Corvette hallmark, and it wears gorgeous chrome A-mold wheels and staggered 255/45/17 front and 285/40/17 Nitto radials. People who buy Corvettes normally treat them with care, use them sparingly, and maintain them to the highest standards. If a slick Corvette has always been on your bucket list, call us today!
