1996 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1996 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
After decades of getting its ass kicked by Italian and German imports, the Corvette had officially returned to the point where it could at least offer them a little competition with the C4 generation. With this return to dominance comes the return of a more traditional crossed flags emblem. The checkered flag remained on the left, a Chevrolet bowtie on the right, with a circular border.
Sebring Silver- to a Corvette aficionado, is a color that will be forever linked with such classics as the first Sting Ray racer of 1959 and the legendary 1963 split-window coupe. Now Sebring Silver is back, adding a special brilliance to this 1996 Corvette Collector Edition. A convertible version sports details that include distinctive chrome emblems outside, and sport seats with “Collector Edition” embroidery inside. These leather seating surfaces are offered in black on this car. For the final season for the fourth-generation Corvette, Sebring Silver rings in the celebration. A consignor stated 1 or 472 with the Z15 Collectors Edition RPO, an LT-1 engine, 4-speed automatic transmission, FE1 sport suspension, and a G92 rear axle. All this wrapped up in a 29,987 original mileage package that participated in the 25th Anniversary at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.
All clean, sparkling and ready to celebrate, Sebring Silver drapes this last year Gen 4 car. Paint is in good condition, and badging shows correctly. Spears return to the front air intake and are reminiscent of earlier Corvettes from the 1950's, but in a more contemporary style. With its rubberized crash bumpers, this car is virtually devoid of any chrome, and just badging shines brightly against the silver. A black canvas convertible top gives you the option of top up or down driving and a body color matching hardtop with stand comes along with the purchase for when the days get shorter and chillier. Satin finished 17" 5 spoke ZR-1 wheels adorn all 4 corners and are wrapped in staggered Continental rubber.
Black stitched leather dominates the snazzy interior that features a semicircular instrument panel that is a digital/analog combination and shows in an orange background with black LCD digits and lines. Noted is the actual mileage of 29,987 miles. Controls for power seat adjustments, and the automatic shifter are within the console. Black makes up the matching door panels, and within the armrest are power windows, and power locks. Other conveniences are an AM/FM/Cassette/CD, climate controls, and a large center screen digital display which is essentially a cluster of warning (idiot) lights. Nicely preserved black leather embroidered buckets with just the right amount of supple wear round out the sporty passenger compartment.
A 5.7 liter V8 300hp LT-1 engine which is electronically fuel injected, is connected to a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission all of which sends power back to a 3.08 geared rear axle.
Very clean, rust free environment, showing no signs of any stresses, or nagging problems. This car is equipped with the FE1 sport suspension package, quoted by numerous sources as creating the best handling and riding C4 Corvette built. Independent suspension with transverse mounted mono leaf springs give the ride while 4-wheel disc brakes round out the undercarriage.
The 1996 Collectors edition has something special and out of the ordinary offerings of 1996. With its silver exterior, special badging, powerful engine, and embroidered seating, it harkens back to another era when the car was in its infancy, but it's definitely not your grandfather's Corvette anymore!
