For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Corvette in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

It's hard to find something more desirable for the money than this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette. After all, it has a great color combo, targa top appeal, and a loaded A/C interior. But when it's also a well-maintained, final-year C4 Collector Edition, you realize that the attraction goes well beyond the value price.

Sebring Silver is the exclusive color that's grabbing all of your attention. It was only available on the Collector Edition this year, and it was the first time the precious metal hue was offered on a Corvette in over a decade. That's why it's so important to have it complete and shining like it is on this coupe. It's the original factory application, and on a car that has averaged less than 2,300 miles annually, it retains a shine that you're happy to show off. In fact, the whole car has seen good respect with well-fitting panels, flush headlights, clean glass, and large doors that have a smooth action. A good-looking body means it's a great way to showcase other upgrades like the Grand Sport-style alloys and exclusive Collector Edition badging. The overall impression is a sophisticated monochromatic tone that allows for a truly grand sendoff for one of the Corvette's most iconic designs.

The light gray leather looks awesome against the exterior paint, and so it's nice to see it in well-respected and original condition. It gives this car a full precious metal feeling. The stylish and grippy bucket seats are all-day comfortable, and they even have Collector Edition embroidered in the headrests. Plus, this is one of the best colors to coordinate with the black interior elements like the leather-wrapped steering wheel, center console, and dashboard. The revised C4 digital speedometer has matured into an interesting readout that looks good and is exceptionally informative. A limited-edition like this also means a long list of features, including power windows, power locks, power mirrors, power driver seat, electric rear defogger, control cruise, dual airbags, and a powerful Bose AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo system. Best of all, the world can see you smiling behind the wheel whenever you want to take the color-matched targa roof off and store it behind the glass hatch. And when the roof is out, the automatic climate control will make sure you're always staying cool while looking cool.

If you're going to get a C4, you want a later model like this, and the 350 cubic-inch LT1 V8 is the reason. The fuel-injected small-block has a legendary reputation for performance and reliability. Combined with the fully independent performance suspension, this coupe has the kind of outright performance that has solidified the Corvette's reputation as America's premier sports car. At the same time, with features like the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes, it will be hard to resist not adding road trip miles to the odometer. So this C4 strikes the perfect balance of being ready for quick moves through traffic, or long hauls down the highway. The final piece to the all-around performance package is the set of grippy Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.

Complete with owner's manual this is a life-long southern car that has been treated with proper respect. It's going to be a long time before you can find a true collector car that's also this affordable. So you better hurry because you're not the only one who sees the value here. Call today!!!
