For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Corvette in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1996 Chevrolet Corvette proves its timeless appeal with its bright white paint, loaded interior, and the excitement of taking a powerful and nimble V8 sports car on the open road. It even has the optional F45 sports suspension. And the affordability reminds you that sometimes the good life can be had for a great price.


Artic White looks particularly good on these later C4s. The factory-correct color shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. In fact, while this has averaged under 2,400 miles annually, you'll have to look hard to find signs it ever left the garage. There are even color-matched splash guards added to help keep the lower fenders looking good. It's this level of care and thoughtfulness that means this sharp-nosed sports car continues to look aggressive, sleek, and premium. It's in everything from the panel fit to the bright buzzsaw style alloys. It ensures that this example continues to get respect from the car community as it continues to mature into a full classic.


The color-matched targa roof is a nice piece for a good-looking coupe, but we bet you'll love taking it out. Not only does the wind-in-your-hair experience make for a more fun drive, but the tan interior has an upper-class kind of style. It's a color combo we don't see too often, and low mileage means it looks good on the carpets, side panels, and leather seats. And speaking of the seats, those are the optional sports seats that give you an impressive amount of individual power adjustment. So this is the right mix of exceptional preservation and enthusiast-ready fun. The great thing about a final-year C4 is you get the classic style, but the best in modern luxuries. It includes automatic A/C climate control, power windows, power locks, cruise control, a digital trip computer, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, dual airbags, and the factory premium Bose AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo.


The 5.7-liter LT1 V8 has the same extra tidy presentation as the rest of this car, and so you know it has received the same exceptional care. This fuel-injected powerhouse has a versatile nature that just seems to be ready with excellent power and torque. So no matter if you're getting up from a stoplight or passing on the highway, this reinforces the Corvette's reputation as America's sports car. With a fully independent sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, this is the full grand touring package. But no matter if you're a collector or a driver, what you'll love the most is the optional F45 Selective Real Time Damping suspension package. A forerunner to MagneRide in modern Corvettes, a computer uses current ride data to calculate the damping mode for optimum control. It can then individually adjust special shock absorbers in milliseconds. This did not find many takers in 1996 because it was one of the most expensive options on the list...but this one has it!


The sale comes complete with nice details like the owner's manual and a car cover. It all goes to the heart of the feeling that you're looking at a well-respected final-year C4 for a terrific price. Call today!!!
