Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Philadelphia is presenting a 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport for sale. Mileage on this Corvette is 52K. For $4934 over the price of a base automatic Corvette, the 1996 Corvette Grand Sport was a package designed to put new life in a thirteen-year-old Corvette platform. The package included Blue paint, white stripe, red fender stripes and interior badging. The LT 4 engine was the only option available and it was only available with the manual transmission. provided 30 extra horses and that is always good. This was the Chevrolet contribution to Blue Sport cars with white stripes down the middle. It seems like every manufacturer had one. Comments overheard at its unveiling ranged from "Gorgeous!" to "That's the ugliest Corvette since that 1978 pace-car model." Chevrolet planned to build 1000 Grand Sports, a mix of coupes and convertibles. All of them had the ZF six-speed manual transmission. While no one will mistake the LT4 engine for the late ZR-1's 405-horsepower LT5, it has noticeably more kick than the LT1, especially through third gear. The extra 30 horsepower comes from a more aggressive camshaft, higher-flow aluminum heads, larger valves, higher-compression pis�tons, new high-flow fuel injectors, and roller rocker arms. This Grand Sport performs and drives as it should and is equipped with AC, power windows and locks, power steering and brakes, AM, FM cassette and CD along with tilt and cruise. The leather interior is also in excellent shape. To view this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit or our Philadelphia showroom.
