5.7 Liter V8
Here\'s a six-speed drop-top \'Vette in a full red package that offered 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 fuel-injected V8 classic.
Corvettes always seem to get a little extra respect. It\'s not just about the appreciative nods that people give as one passes by, but also there\'s extra esteem in ownership. That\'s how you get a car that continues to look a well-preserved as this one. The original Torch Red paint has a great shine. It reminds you why the best Corvettes are bright red, and at the same time, the deep luster highlights the best lines of the C4. The sharply pointed front end, long hood, flared fenders, and flat convertible deck with a hint of spoiler really show off a speedy style. And those buzz saw polished alloys add to both the shine and aggression that comes from a red-hot Corvette.
The black convertible top is a crisp-looking newer piece, so it looks quite nice when in place. But for true distinction, you\'re going to want to take it down. After all, it\'s hard to beat the look of a red Corvette optioned with a factory red leather. This loaded interior means you and your passenger get supportive bucket seats, and yours power adjusts to the ideal driving position. You get a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that is the C4\'s updated gauge package that combines digital and analog readouts to feel like a fighter plane. You also have great luxury amenities like power windows, power locks, cruise control, 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 automatic climate control with cold-blowing R134a air conditioning.
It\'s 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 go to the heart of the car\'s well-respected understanding. 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. This believed to be the original motor in this well-maintained modern classic, and that means it remains a strong package. 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 power disc brakes, and fully independent sports suspension, and this full red package loves the back roads.
Rarely do all the features you want (including the six-speed) meet in such a well-presented package. So at a price like this, you know this will be gone soon. Call today!!!
