Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
You can get a heck of a lot of car for the money with a C4 right now. This 1996 Chevrolet Corvette proves it with its bright white paint, brighter red interior, and the excitement of taking a powerful and nimble V8 sports car on the open road. It's all available now for less than the price of an economy hatchback.
Artic White looks particularly good on these later C4s. The factory-correct color shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. So it's a value-priced classic that also has some great originality. Not everything is perfect on this after 25 years, but the alignment of the body and shine of the paint still really let you know this was a cared for Corvette you can drive with pride. And also don't forget, crossing the 25-year threshold also makes it eligible for antique plates in many states. But it's not just your practical side that's attracted to this C4. After all, this is a sharp-nosed sports car with a sleek presentation and a legendary name. And we love the little hints of personalization, like how the tinted glass, darkened front tuning lights, and darkened taillights contrast against the bright white paint.
Red leather interiors always look terrific in sports cars, and with exterior white, this feels like it radiates from within. It's just beckoning you to get in and drive. This loaded interior means you and your passenger get supportive bucket seats that power adjust to the ideal position. From behind the wheel it truly feels like piloting a jet fighter, with the digital readout on the dash that's flanked by all the essential gauges and a wide array of control buttons. The great thing about a classic from the 1990s is that you get every modern convenience you could want in this premium 'Vette. It includes power windows, power locks, cruise control, digital trip computer, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, dual airbags, and the factory premium Bose AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo. The automatic climate control features R134a air conditioning, so you can stay cool even when the targa roof is stowed behind the seats. So nothing is stopping you from enjoying an open-top, open-road journey anytime of the year.
The LT1 small block was a great upgrade to these later C4s. Extra power and extra versatility unleashed a new spirit into the legendary small-block V8. It's a fuel-injected 300 horsepower powerhouse, and this original motor has been maintained and treated with respect. That's why it's tidy enough that you can still see the factory decals so clearly. The four-speed automatic transmission is the perfect pairing for this V8. When you peg the throttle, it has quick downshifts so that you unleash a fury of power and growl from the dual exhaust. But when it's time for the grand tour, this settles easily into overdrive comfort. And no matter if you want to have fun over the quarter mile or on a weekend getaway, this Corvette accommodates with its fully independent sports suspension, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes (w/ABS), and ZR-rated performance tires on directional alloys.
Complete with maintenance records and service manuals, this is a V8 dream car that's finally within grasp. Don't miss this one. Call today!!!
