For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Corvette in Lavergne, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

We all like to save the best for last, including Chevrolet. This 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition represents the end of the C4s with a limited run of specially painted cars that are loaded with the best features from the evolution of the series. And since it's so distinct, it's quite nice to find a low-mileage example that has been given lifelong care to have an excellent overall presentation.

This car was significant from day one, but right now, it's even more noteworthy. This Collector Edition has finally crossed the quarter-century threshold. That means it's officially eligible for collector car plates and benefits in many states that offer it. So it's officially being recognized as a classic, and this example has been treated that way averaging only about 1,700 miles annually. The Sebring Silver paint is believed to be the original application. It was exclusive to this limited edition and represents the car correctly. This special silver has seen exceptional care so that the fiberglass body shines more like precious metal. And the crisp lines of the C4's body make this almost like a knife's edge cutting through the air. The 17-inch wheels are perfectly paired with a color-coordinated style and unique Collector Edition badging. So take extra time to look over the full car because it's impressive, right down to the pliable weather-stripping.

This coupe was optioned with the roof package, and that means your choice between the translucent targa roof or a color-matched panel. But what we all like the best is no roof at all. The black interior looks terrific against the exterior silver. It's not only because they are a great color combo, but also because the interior has been just as respected as the exterior. The leather sports seats are comfortable and supportive and have Collector Edition embroidered into the headrests. It's loaded with the best features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, six-way power seats, cruise control, dual airbags, a Bose sound system, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The leather-wrapped steering wheel feels good in your hands and is mounted on a tilt column. In front of it is a dash with digital readouts in the center flanked by a tachometer on the left and sweep gauges for critical engine functions on the right. So you'll happily add miles to the low odometer.

Under the hood you will find a completely stock-style engine bay that has been kept clean and detailed. Nestled down inside it is the formidable LT1 engine that pumps out 300 horsepower and 335 foot-pounds of torque. Not only is it ready for display, but the fuel-injected powerhouse is also ready for the road. After all, the fully independent sports suspension, power steering, four-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS make for a great driver for near or far.

The sale comes complete with the window sticker, owner's manual packet, an extra set of keys, and a car cover so you can continue to keep it looking this good. It's time to take home this Collector Edition coupe kept in true collectible care. Call today!!!
