Chevrolet knows their clientele, and with the 1996 Corvette Collector's Edition, put together a special package that would entice hard-core 'Vette fans with a unique tribute to the outgoing C4 model. The $1250 option brought unique Sebring Silver Metallic paint, 5-spoke wheels, and, of course, special badges and embroidery that left no secret about what it was. 5412 Corvette fans ultimately stepped up to the plate and took one home, making it a special 'Vette with a fantastic look.

This particular LT4/6-speed Collector's Edition coupe shows just 58,600 original miles, and is one of those rare C4 Corvettes that hasn't been modified or abused. The lovely Sebring Silver paint job on the Collector's Edition stands out with its subtlety, especially next to the flamboyant Grand Sport. It gives the slinky 'Vette a sophisticated look, and by 1996, build quality was among the best in the GM stables. Always a cherished collector's item, it has been immaculately maintained from new, and since it was purchased it has always been garage kept and routinely serviced, and with a clean Vehicle History Report, it's never been abused either. Paint is about what you got in 1996 and shows well; it's especially important for preservation classes, for which Corvette clubs are famous. The special badging doesn't make a big fuss about being a special edition, but Corvette guys in the know can spot one of these a mile away. It looks great from any angle but doesn't advertise that it was the fastest 'Vette you could buy in 1996. That's pretty cool.

You could get black, red, or light gray upholstery with your Collector's Edition, and in our opinion, there's nothing more handsome than red leather in a silver sports car. Seating surfaces remain in excellent shape, with the driver's seat perhaps showing only the most minor signs of use, and the dramatic stitching and special embroidery remains its strongest visual statement. All Corvettes came loaded with standard equipment, but this one also features the Preferred Equipment Group, which includes electronic A/C, power driver's seat, and a Delco/Bose music system. It's all functioning (note: the driver's seat lumbar options are not currently working, although the other positions are working as they should), as you'd expect from a car whose reliability is legendary and which has been properly maintained. The carpets and door panels look new, and because this Corvette has both removable tops, open-air cruising is only a few calisthenics away. The rear hatch area is incredibly plush and clean as well, showing no signs of age or fading: an impressive feat in a red interior with a fish bowl rear window.

The Collector's Edition received the upgraded LT4 powerplant available in the Grand Sport, and with 340 horsepower on tap, performance is explosive. Paired with the slick-shifting ZF 6-speed manual transmission (which was the only transmission available with the LT4), it remains a superlative highway cruiser and slices through rush-hour traffic like a scalpel. It's also notoriously easy to modify, so finding one that hasn't been hopped up (and by association, raced or abused) can be a challenge. This one is stock right down to the spark plugs, and GM engineers went the extra mile to make the LT4 look pretty under that big clamshell hood, with the red intake manifold setting the LT4 apart from the garden-variety LT1. The chassis is equally clean, with original components throughout, and it has always been serviced, so all the little things work like they should. Handsome 17-inch A-mold wheels were part of the package, and wear 275/40/17 Cooper performance radials.

Complete with original manuals, warranty information, and other original Corvette documentation, this is the Collector's Edition for the serious Corvette collector. Call today!
