1996 was the final year for the legendary C4 Chevrolet Corvette. So there's no better way to celebrate this important classic than with the official Collector Edition model. But more than just rare, this one has received all the right care over its two-owner lifetime to be that bright and loaded sports car that's always ready for the grand tour.
Corvette people know that Sebring Silver is a special color. Named after the famous racetrack, it was only available in the C4 on the Collector Edition. In fact, it was only offered one other time before this to launch the C2 Corvette in '66. It's this kind of significance is why this coupe received a complete and professional respray of its special factory-correct color. That ensures that it still shines like precious metal (a little ironic on a lightweight fiberglass car, right?) But the reason why you really love the paintwork is the way it makes this one instantly grab your attention. The C4 is an iconic for its styling that expertly blends knife-edge creases with gentle aerodynamic curves. You see it so well because this one has been cared for correctly. That's why the headlights are flush, the doors close with authority, and the special Collector Edition wheels have never seen a curb. And this one seems to have just a little extra flare to it, too. It's the tinted windows. It might seem like a little thing, but they combine with the factory tinted glass targa top, door handles, and other dark components to almost give this special edition the look of a two-tone.
The interior feels just as fresh as the exterior. And the factory-correct light gray leather lets you know this Collector Edition was one of only 1,210 ever produced in this combo. Just like the exterior, there is a nice grouping of silver/gray and black as the leather-wrapped steering wheel, center console, and dashboard all have a nice and dark presence. There's even special black Collector Edition logo embroidered in the seats. As you look over the whole interior, you'll not only be impressed with the level of preservation, but also how loaded a modern classic can be. You get power windows, power locks, power mirrors, electric rear defogger, control cruise, dual airbags, and a powerful Bose AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo system. Plus, with the automatic climate control, you can take the targa top out and enjoy open-top motoring without breaking a sweat. But more than just loaded with the best luxuries, this is a true driver's machine. The power driver's seat gets you in that perfect position, and the later C4's instruments are the perfect race-ready mix of analogue and digital.
More than just better gauges the late C4s also meant the 350 cubic-inch LT1 V8... and this fuel-injected small block was worth the wait. Rated at 300 horsepower from the factory, this numbers-matching original motor is the kind of powerplant that allows you to enjoy America's sports car to the fullest. This is heightened further by the fully independent performance suspension and a new set of Nitto Extreme ZR-rated tires. But more than just an all-out speed machine, the four-speed automatic transmission w/ overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes makes this a great anytime classic.
This Corvette is coming off of long-term ownership, and you can see the care in the included maintenance records. Plus, the sale comes with the owner's manual and service manuals. This is that perfect collector-grade Collector Edition, and it's at quite an obtainable price. Don't miss out, call today!
