A six-speed droptop ‘Vette in distinctive colors all for less than an economy hatchback?!?! Usually a car like this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette convertible has a catch, but the more you read on, the more you’re going to love this one.
The factory original shade of Polo Green still looks fantastic today thanks to years of care. It has a deep luster that looks like a dark shiny emerald when the sunshine hits the body. Corvette enthusiasts particularly love their cars, and so it should be no surprise that the C4’s hallmark pointed front chin hasn’t been scuffed on steep driveways or blasted by gravel. It is a similar situation out back where the convex rear bumper cap is unmarred by cracks or other signs of parking lot combat. And the upgrade to aftermarket wheels even give this classic some more modern C6 Z06 performance flair. That’s why we love this car. Usually when you buy into a car community at a value price, you’ll start at the bottom rung. This cool Corvette convertible is exceptionally affordable and has the right kind of elegance.
Just like the exterior, you can tell serious care has been taken with the interior. That’s good news because the tan leather is the perfect complementing color to the deep green, and you can share this with the world anytime you feel like taking down the matching folding roof. This loaded interior means you and your passenger get supportive bucket seats that are power adjustable in just about every direction. From behind the wheel it truly feels like piloting a jet fighter, with the digital readout on the dash that are 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, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, an alarm system, anti-lock brakes, and dual airbags. And since we know you’ll want to be driving with the roof down all year long, you’ll be glad to have cold R134a air conditioning.
It is always a good idea to get a later C4 because the LT1 V8 was absolutely worth the wait. This small-block has a legendary reputation for proving the flexibility to be tame and forgiving in everyday traffic, and its tidy presentation and new radiator go to the heart of its everyday usability. But the true value of the LT1 is that it’s always ready to unleash its full fuel-injected 300 horsepower fury at a moment’s notice. 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 (a rare find these days.) Add in great driving features like power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires, and this mean machine is really an anytime cruiser.
A Corvette of this caliber is truly a like a Choose Your Own Adventure book. At any given time it can be you backroads burner or comfortable droptop cruiser. In fact, the only way you can really be disappointed with this C4 is if you miss out on this exceptionally affordable convertible. Call today!!!
