About this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

VIN: 1G1YY2253T5600141

Details

This meticulously maintained, and original 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport is one of just 810 coupes built. The Grand Sport was a special package to celebrate and send the C4 generation off in style. This example boasts only 17,753 miles, and the Admiral Blue factory paint is still deep and rich. The special black leather interior reflects the same condition as the exterior. The car has had one owner since new.

This Corvette was equipped from the factory with a special factory modified and uprated 330 horsepower 5.7 liter LT4 V8 engine backed by a six-speed manual transmission. Additional equipment includes a limited-slip differential, three-setting adjustable ride control, power seats, windows, and locks along with a removable roof panel. Grand Sport Coupes also featured more aggressive rear fender flares, white racing stripes, and red front fender hash marks.

This one owner, Corvette, has never been driven in the rain and was given scheduled oil changes. The car remains in its original condition with no modifications. Included in the sale are the original showroom placards, two keys, and a car cover.

This Corvette is available in Ohio as a Premium Listing on CLASSIC.COM. being sold by Robert Lewis.
