1993 Chevrolet Corvette 40th Anniversary Convertible
Don't purchase a '93 40th Anniversary Edition Corvette and squirrel
it away in a warehouse hoping it will make you wealthy. If you want
to collect something that really might make a fortune someday, try
gold coins, 1950's Eames era furniture, hood ornaments, or a
limited run of "Michael Jackson's Neverland" Commemorative plates.
This car was made to be driven. It would be a shame to own it and
have it any other way.
For consignment, a very nice 1993 40th Anniversary Edition
Corvette, all original and all good. This is a jump in, turn the
key, and have loads of enjoyment with top up or down kinda car.
Pedal to the metal, or lightly tickling it with your toe on a windy
undulating drive, only having logged 33,983 miles there is plenty
of life to be lived with this Classic Corvette.
As were all 40th Anniversary Corvettes, this one is covered in Ruby
Red Metallic, and it is all good. Minor scratches here and there,
but all functioning well. Even the cloth convertible top is
presenting well in maroon as is the factory hardtop. Cleaner less
curved boxier lines dominate the exterior and are even utilized on
the rectangular chromed exhaust tips. The iconic finned cove now
relegated to the front quarter panels serves to let some fresh air
into the engine bay. A satin finish luggage rack is on the back and
just below are the iconic deeply inset round taillights. Polished
aluminum turbine style wheels are noted on all 4 corners and are
wrapped in newer ZR rated 17" rubber.
Ruby Red leather buckets with wonderfully pleasing patina show use,
but not overuse. Lowering yourself into this cockpit, you will feel
like a sports car endurance driver, strapped in but with all the
creature comforts: power seat controls, power windows, cruise
control, anti-skid mode, climate control, power locks, power
mirrors, and a sound system that will be music to your ears. A
smattering of black vinyl accents in the form of the center
console, door pulls, dash, and armrests, breaks up all the Ruby Red
leather and gives the cockpit a very classy yet sporty look. A
large information screen is seen, as well as a mixture of analog
and orange glow digital gauges.
A 350ci LT1 V8 with electronic fuel injection and a 4L60E 4-speed
automatic transmission appear under the front hinged hood. An
economy minded 2.59 limited slip rear axle is putting the power to
the pavement. All looking good and reflecting the low odometer
Garage kept, would be the way to describe the wonderfully
preserved, original rust-free undercarriage. No rust is noted but
there is some road dirt coating the flooring and suspension. Single
fiberglass composite mono leaf spring with unequal length aluminum
control arms and stabilizer bar, are up front, and on the rear, a
fully independent 5 link system with fiberglass single leaf spring,
aluminum upper/lower trailing links and a strut tie-rod assembly.
Power disc brakes are all around.
I slipped in and lit the candles, and we're off. Me and my cohort
took this one through the paces at the Classic Auto Mall test pad,
and it performed well. Smooth acceleration, good handling, and a
super quick stopper. The suspension is good cruising and handling
in a performance situation, so you are treated to the best of both
Many of the Corvettes we take in here that are from the 90's are
driven hard and put up wet. Typically, they were bought by
individuals who found success, and wanted a powerful status car
they can fool around with, punch the gas, put down some rubber, and
move on to another vehicle. This car could be described as a
favorite toy for its owner, who painstakingly took care of all
aspects of the responsibilities that come with a sports car from
the early 90's. All original, and all nice... isn't it your time to
own a Corvette?
