The 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Collector Edition represented the last of the C4 generation and featured a Sebring Silver Metallic finish, 17” silver 5-spoke aluminum wheels, special emblems, and special seat trim. One of 4,031 coupe variants built, this example presents a Torch Red leather interior and features Collector Edition equipment, selective real-time damping, a 5.7L LT4 V8 engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, and much more. Acquired by the seller from a dealer in Virginia in August 2021, this Corvette Collector Edition is said to have been an NCRS Blue Ribbon winner and is now being offered for auction out of California with less than 16k miles on the odometer.
This Corvette is presented in a Sebring Silver Metallic finish with a one-piece removable fiberglass roof panel. Details include power-operated retractable halogen headlights, halogen fog lights, and bespoke Collector Edition chrome badging on the front, sides, and rear. It rides on Collector Edition 5-spoke 17” silver-painted aluminum wheels dressed in Continental Extreme Contact tires from 2021. A set of aftermarket removable mudflaps have been added. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The interior is upholstered in Torch Red Leather with perforated six-way power-adjustable Sport Seats featuring Collector Edition embroidery. Accessories include a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, air conditioning, cruise control, power door locks, power windows, and a Delco/Bose AM/FM stereo radio with a clock and stereo cassette tape. All gauges and accessories are reported to be working properly.
This Corvette is equipped with a 5.7L LT4 V8 engine that was factory-rated at 330 HP and 340 lb.-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission. Mechanical features include optional selective real-time damping, an independent front suspension, a 5-link rear suspension with transverse fiberglass springs, power rack and pinion steering, and power front and rear disc brakes. The seller notes that the car was serviced upon their acquisition in August 2021.
This sale will include a clean title, window sticker, tool kit, and owner’s manuals.
The seller would like you to know: “Hello everyone, thank you for your interest in my auction. I have owned my Corvette since August of 2021. It was purchased back East and I am the 3rd owner. The car is close to immaculate condition and has an NCRS Blue Ribbon. It is one of 164 Collector Editions configured in Sebring Silver with Torch Red Interior, LT-4 Engine, and a 6-speed manual transmission. The car has always been garaged and covered with a battery tender. It's started every few weeks and exercised. I've only put a few hundred miles on it. I'll try to answer questions as timely as possible. Thanks again!”
