Dressed in a coveted color and running in impressive form, this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette is ready to provide smile-inducing miles and miles for its next lucky owner. It has that magnetic curb appeal the model is renowned for and, having logged fewer than 50,000 miles, this is a car that youll be able to take out and enjoy right away. As a 1996, this Vette was among the last members of the models fourth generation, which equipped it with a sleeker design, as well as an entirely new and improved chassis. Also, this generations vastly improved exterior construction equips it to better handle dings and dents than ever before, and the benefits of that technology are on display - this Corvettes high impact black exterior still looks sharp. The featured Targa top really aligns nicely with its surroundings, and being fairly lightweight, it makes for an easy proposition to shift from open air driving to a more enclosed environment behind the wheel. Direct your attention to the back of the car and youll see another one of its defining design cues - a glass hatchback that provides improved access to the rear storage area while also enhancing the cars singular body lines. This Corvettes fold-down headlights were one of the models defining features for decades, but showed some functional issues on occasion. Thats not the case here. This 1996s headlights raise into position without issue and sit nice and flush when theyre in their lowered position. Inside, the black leather interior has come through the years looking pretty strong. The bucket seats show a bit of wear, but not at a level you would expect from a car of this vintage, and the dash area appears surprisingly fresh, with no cracks or warping to be found. The center console is also still in good shape and has an AM/FM stereo that includes a cassette player just above it - when was the last time you had a chance to bust out your collection? Comfort and convenience features include power steering that offers plenty of feel for the road, power seats, windows and mirrors, a tilt steering column, and a rear window defogger. The air conditioning system is totally intact and will likely require just a bit of attention to regain top form. Take a peek in back, and you might be surprised at just how much room will be at your disposal, courtesy of this Corvettes fourth generation design. This Corvettes fuel injected LT4 engine is running strong - its good for 350 horsepower, plus, which is more than enough to equip this lightweight car with spirited performance -and it pairs with a 6-speed manual transmission that puts full control of the engines output in the hands of the driver. The engine sits in a well-maintained compartment, with fresh looking wires and hoses in clear view. The 3.45 ratio rear end equips this drivetrain with strong off the line acceleration, while also keeping the revs nice and low at highway speeds. Step on the accelerator and the engine exhales into a Borla exhaust that sends out a great exhaust note. Corvettes have featured independent suspensions in both front and back for decades, so this 96 is adept at handling uneven surfaces while cornering, sparing you annoying wheel hop while at the helm. A set of 17 ZR1 wheels complements the appearance of this timeless sports car. This 1996 Chevrolet Corvette LT4 is an impressive representative of its iconic model and offers a first-class driving experience, along with open-air versatility. It also comes with an extra set of stock wheels without tires. Call today!
