Are we looking at the biggest bargain in performance cars today?
This 1995 Chevrolet Corvette offers world-class handling,
adjustable suspension, potent LT1 power, and a six-speed...all for
less than $20,000! Better yet, it remains original in all the
places that counts, but as you can see, this one has been given a
cool aggressive image upgrade.
All C4s have that legendary wedge styling that makes them look like they're in motion even at a standstill. But this one goes for the full aggressive package. It starts with the fantastic condition of the factory Torch Red, which is always a bold choice. From there, this 'Vette reveals its dark side. Tinted side windows and rear hatch join the tinted transparent roof panel. Add in blacked-out side lights up front and new dark slats for the taillights. And, of course, those black Grand Sport-style 17-inch alloy wheels are a touch everyone loves. The total appearance gives this C4 an impression somewhere between two-tone and the baddest kid on the block.
When you decide to take the targa roof out, the dark black interior adds to the color scheme even more. The leather seats look great, and they have the kind of modern bolstering that lets you go on the long journeys. And in fact, a sports car like this is also great for road trips thanks to features like automatic climate control, cruise control, and factory AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo by Bose. There are more great anytime features such as power windows, power locks, tilt wheel, electric rear defrost, and a power driver's seat. You even get modern safety in this modern classic with dual airbags and ABS. But we know the real reason why you desire a C4. It's because sitting behind the wheel feels like a piloting jet fighter with the digital readout on the dash and the wide array of control buttons.
If you're going to get a C4, you want a later model like this, and the 350 cubic-inch 300 horsepower 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 and optional FX3 adjustable ride & handling package, this coupe has the kind of outright performance that has solidified the Corvette's reputation as America's premiere sports car. This numbers-matching powerplant looks fantastically original in the engine bay, which is why we suspect the low 60,605 mileage could be quite accurate. The sound it makes from the dual exhaust is hypnotic, especially when you take full advantage of the control offered by the six-speed manual transmission. Add in great driving features like power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of Firestone Wide Oval tires, and this mean machine is really an anytime cruiser, too.
Complete with factory buildsheet and original window sticker, this Corvette has all the right elements for collectability. And since it's such a great car to be seen in, too, we know the low price is going to make this fast-moving C4 exit our showroom quickly. Call today!!!
