Corvette 40th Anniversary
TONS OF DOCS, WINDOW STICKER, FACTORY HARDTOP, ONLY 34K ORIGINAL MILES, STUNNING
Of the many special edition C4 Corvettes that rolled out over its lengthy 12-year lifespan, the 1993 models like this heart-stopping roadster are notable for their 40th anniversary connection. With gorgeous Anniversary Ruby Red paint, this spectacular convertible stands out and today it is guaranteed to generate positive comments when you're at the gas station or stopped at a light. This one also comes with the somewhat rare option for a factory hardtop, not something you see every day for an Anniversary car.
This stunning roadster sports 34,074 original miles, which translates to about 1550 miles per year. That means no snow, no daily grind in rush-hour traffic, and no parking lot commutes. The spectacular finish sizzles in the sunlight, and the Ruby Red paint is definitely the right choice for a high-visibility model like this. This one shows very few signs of age with only minor blemishes here and there plus a glossy finish that has obviously been lovingly waxed on a regular basis. This is a southern car as well, meaning no rust, no salt, and no underbody issues that even on the fiberglass Corvette can be a problem. Anniversary cars also got special badging and matching center caps in the wheels, so it's identifiable at a glance, but even without the emblems, everyone knows this is a special 'Vette. But at this price, it will be hard to resist a sunny afternoon and your favorite stretch of twisting pavement.
This roadster also got a special treatment inside, with matching Ruby Red leather seats. Showing age-appropriate wear, but no splits or tears, the interior has a comfortable, lived-in look like your favorite pair of jeans, which is how the Corvette prefers it. This one was loaded up with options, too: the Anniversary package added a power passenger seat as well as the custom embroidery on the headrests, and this car also includes electronic climate control, a Delco/Bose entertainment system, and a six-way power driver's seat. Both seats wear embroidered 40th Anniversary markings that are shockingly subtle for a red Corvette. Overhead there's a special burgundy canvas convertible top that can be stowed in seconds, plus a rare and expensive matching hardtop. Everything works, including the cool digital/analog instrument panel that is more effective than you might think at first glance and ice cold A/C.
Power comes from GM's legendary LT1 V8, which made 300 horsepower in 1993. Performance is entertaining, especially with the 6-speed manual transmission, which makes this a true enthusiast's car. There are few better point-and-shoot weapons on the highway than this car-if you see a space in traffic, punch it and the car roars forward and the ZF gearbox is one of the most satisfying ever installed in a Corvette. Some of the most powerful brakes of the era were a Corvette trademark, and by 1993, the suspension was supple yet energetic, delivering decent ride quality without sacrificing the handling that makes the Corvette legendary. You can see how clean the engine bay is in photos, and there are no questionable modifications, no goofy bolt-ons out of a catalog, and OEM parts throughout. The original, unblemished 17-inch wheels wear 255/40/17 front and 285/40/17 rear Goodyear Eagle radials, just like when it was new. Nice!
Book value says this C4 Corvette is a screaming bargain, offering a ton of performance and a design that is aging gracefully. Powerful, fast, and with the 40th Anniversary package, downright beautiful, this is a lot of fun for not a lot of scratch. Best of all, it's documented with every single piece of paper that ever came with including a factory hardtop along with maintenance receipts. Call today!
