Corvette 1996

Title Status Clear
Exterior Color Artic White
Interior Color Gray Leather


Chevy’s fourth generation delves into the American sportscar arena bringing us a car that was working through an era that just didn’t like performance. Somewhat unappreciated are C-4’s, but innovations and evolution created stunning improvements like the LT-1 motor during its 13-year reign. And, like dessert, Chevy saved the best for last.

Ending in 1996, the fourth model Corvette was popularly the labeled the ‘best Vette yet’. LT-1 motors running 300 horses, staggard tire configurations and body modifications give us the improvements needed to bring the last year of the C-4 back to American Sportscar status. Our Artic white beauty started out in Florida and has been in San Antonio Texas with our current Owner since 2007. Her excellent condition and originality clearly display pride of ownership. She comes with a clean and clear title in our Owner’s name.

Original paint adores our Artic White C-4. Her condition is reported as extremely nice with just a few blemishes and road-use items, a tone carried by care and quality with her past ownerships. All glass is very nice and original, no chips or scores and the rear hatch operation is excellent. C-4’s introduced a new Corvette standard, the Targa top, and hers is in excellent condition. The tire and rim package of the later C-4’s incorporates a staggard front and rear, with the rears being a bit larger.

Luxury was emphasized in these later cars and ours does not disappoint. Gray leather seating is original and just showing a bit of wear. All dash and gauge items perform flawlessly. Cockpit functions including power windows and locks, steering, cruise perform as designed and proper. Dash and carpet show very little age and are in excellent condition.

Powered by GM’s venerable 350 cid V8, the improvements in the late C-4 models bring the base motor back to the 60’s with an outstanding 300 horses. Achieved through the application of modernized fuel injection, reverse flow cooling and computer engine management, they also found a significant improvement to dependability. Our sanitary sport coupe continues her quality quest with a stunning and clean engine bay. C-4’s are just a joy when the hood is ‘tilted’. Power is transferred to all original running gear including a 4-speed automatic and posi-traction independent rear suspension.

The complete diagnostics of this beauty was performed by Lemon Squad. After a thorough review of both her mechanicals and cosmetics, she was given a grand report. Originality shows in some items displaying a bit of wear, some road rashes but all around, she is in excellent condition and, as stated, shows pride of ownership in her condition.

C-4 were introduced in 1984, bringing styling changes and handling improvements to the great American sportscar. Advancements to on-board diagnostics and the venerable 350 V8 gave us huge improvements in both dependability and power over their 13 years. We end the model in year 1996, with GM developing grand improvements and bringing America’s sports car back to the art of sporting. 4’s are generally regarded as the least desired of the various Corvettes and we’ve stated this before and it bears repeating, C4 Corvettes hold a great potential in value to purchase- price potential. For performance and fun to drive versus cost to own, these cars are a bargain in today’s market.
