This is a find for the discriminating Corvette buyer who would like a collector Corvette which can be driven and enjoyed without a fear of putting moderate mileage on a collectible Corvette. This is not an under 1,000 mile car that has never seen the road and has only been garaged and trailered to car shows. This is a Corvette to be proudly driven and thoroughly enjoyed. An appreciation of the significance of the 1996 Collector Edition Corvette can be gained by reviewing a little background information on this particular Corvette. To celebrate the final year of C4 production, Chevrolet produced the Collector Edition Corvette to showcase the design and performance prowess of the Corvette group. Motor Trend magazine in its May1996 issue simply stated: Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition-Road Test-The Best Of The Last. The 1996 Collector Edition model is distinguished by it’s exclusive Sebring Silver paint, chromed “Collector Edition” emblems, 17” five-spoke aluminum wheels painted silver, P255/45 ZR-17 (Front) and P185/40 ZR-17 (rear) tires and black brake calipers with raised bright aluminum “Corvette” lettering. The cockpit style interior featured perforated Sport Seats with “Collector Edition” embroidery available in Torch Red, Black or Light Gray Leather. According to the Motor Trend article: “Without question, the first thing drivers and passengers notice about the Collector Edition is its absolutely sparkling engine performance-not just the peak 330 horses of its LT4, but also its gobs of torque, improved smoothness right up to its 6300-rpm redline, and rock-steady idle. The 30 extra horses (over the horsepower output of the base 1996 Corvette engine) came from classic hot-rodding tweaks like opening up the cylinder-head ports, adding bigger valves, and stuffing in a hotter camshaft with increased lift, duration, and overlap. Electronic multiport fuel injection takes the place of the dual quads that were part of the Vette's first "PowerPak" upgrade in '56, but the rest of the mods are well-traveled hop-up territory. The 1996 Collector Edition convertible, with an auxiliary hard top, being offered for sale by its 3rd owner is a well maintained 1996 Collector Edition Corvette, which in addition to the options included in the Collector’s Edition Package has the Corvette Convertible Preference Equipment Group #1 options. The car has a clean Carfax Report, which is available upon request. Here is an opportunity to acquire a collectible C4 Corvette, with low mileage and extensive documentation. A perfect car to take through NCRS or Bloomington Gold Judging or just enjoy, for the beautiful high performance sports car it truly is, with all the pride of ownership which comes with owning a distinctive Corvette. For further information or to schedule an opportunity to see this Corvette please call Mark 609-306-1631 10am-10pm EST.
