RARE LT4 V8 GRAND SPORT ENGINE (ORIGINAL), 6 SPEED, LOADED, CLEAN BODY, A/C ETC.

Chevy gave the C4 Corvette a grand send off by creating an upgraded small block engine known as the LT4. It offered a few more horsepower and it loved to rev, and if you were smart like the guy who originally ordered this Torch Red 1996 Chevrolet Corvette coupe, you got it in a standard 'Vette. Now this coupe is in the league of the ultra desirable Grand Sport and Collector Edition models. But this one is at an irresistible price.

You can't argue that the C4 wasn't a great-looking car, and even today they command respect on the street...and now you're looking at the ultimate sleeper. This final-year fourth-generation Corvette has the most powerful motor available that was typically reserved for special cars, as well as for a few people who knew how to manipulate the ordering system. From the outside this one shares the legendary wedge styling that made all C4s look like they are aggressively in motion even at a standstill. This was highlighted even further in the last few years with the iconic "sawblade" wheels. In fact, those optional alloys also offer the only bit of chrome on the car...everything else is the iconic red Corvette.

The light gray leather looks awesome inside the C4. The stylish and grippy bucket seats are all day comfortable, and they match well with the black elements on the leather-wrapped steering wheel and dashboard. The revised C4 digital speedometer has matured into an interesting readout that looks good, and works flawlessly. A premium corvette like this means a long list of features, including automatic climate control, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, power seats, electric rear defogger, control cruise, dual airbags, and a powerful AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo system. Best of all, the world can see you smiling behind the wheel whenever you want to take the targa roof off and store it behind the glass hatch.

The 340 hp LT4 engine boasted a number of improvements, and its willingness to rev makes it a blast to drive. It's easy to spot with its red intake manifold, and like its brother the LT1, modifications are plentiful. Fortunately, this one remains completely stock with its original motor. That also means it starts easily, idles smoothly, and runs like it should. While this coupe is beginning to sound like a potential car to park for an investment, it would be a shame not to have fun on the backroads with the ZF six-speed manual transmission (this was actually the key to getting the LT4 installed in a more subtle-looking standard 'Vette.) The suspension on the late C4s found the perfect balance of road carving sports car, and highway-mile cruiser. It was all part of a package that includes power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and now grippy Nitto NT555 modern tires.

With the ZR-1 gone, the LT4 was the top motor to send off the C4 Corvette in its final year. It's the most desirable 1996 motor today, and finding a standard Corvette with the LT4 is arguably a rarer find than a Grand Sport. This is a valuable future classic available at a driver's car price. You better hurry and snap this one up as we don't see it lasting in our showroom. Call today!!
