For Sale: 1996 Chevrolet Corvette in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Chevy gave the C4 Corvette a grand send-off by creating an upgraded small block engine known as the LT4. It offered more horsepower and it loved to rev. It was the basis for some cars like the Grand Sport and Collector Edition models, but a few keen-eyed people also picked up on it for the standard coupe that came in an awesome red like this. So this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette runs in a very exclusive crowd, and yet, it can be yours for quite a nice price.

This was the final year for the C4 and the only year you could get the LT4, so you already know this one is desirable. But there's much more going on here. After all, the C4 is maturing into one of the sleekest classics around, and this example shows the right signs of being treated with care. The tastefully added pinstripes help showcase how straight the body panels are, and that lets the sunlight roll off the glossy Torch Red paint with a smooth look of quality. This shows all the right signs of being the paint's original application, and its outstanding condition is part of the package you get on a car that has averaged under 2k miles annually. It largely has a stock and preserved style, but keen eyes will spot cool details. For example, the extra-polished look of the alloys goes quite well with the upgraded shining quad exhaust tips from the Corsa exhaust. And that just makes this stunner even more stunning.

If you believe that the Corvette is truly America's sports car, then you'll love how the interior gives you a true red-blooded American. This red leather has the same level of respect and care as the exterior, and so you'll happily leave the targa roof out to show off this coordinated and bold package. But more than just looking great, Corvettes were made to be driven. The stylish and grippy bucket seats are all-day comfortable. The revised C4 digital speedometer has matured into an interesting readout that looks good and works with precision. A premium Corvette like this means a long list of features, including automatic A/C climate control, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, power seats, electric rear defogger, dual airbags, ABS, an upgraded AM/FM/CD/XM stereo.

The LT4 engine was a single-year offering. It's easy to spot with its red intake manifold on top of this fuel-injected powerhouse. This is one of the best motors of the C4 era, with ten percent more power than the LT1 and a wonderful willingness to rev. So it makes for a great driver's car and a great collectible. You can see from the full picture file that the engine/suspension follows the car's overall theme of respected preservation with just the right upgrades. And so a clean motor means good maintenance and care. It fires up eagerly, and the updated resonator package on the dual exhaust means an even more intoxicating V8 tune. The key to getting the potent LT4 in a more stand-style Corvette was opting for the new ZF six-speed manual transmission. So not only did you get more power, but also you got to fully take control of it. The suspension on the later C4s found the ideal balance of road-carving sports car and highway-mile cruiser. It's all part of a package that includes power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.

Complete with the owner's manual, this is the final-year C4 with the ideal motor, transmission, and color combo. It's a great classic treated with the respect that you want in a car you can both drive and cherish forever. Call today!!!
