VEHICLE DESCRIPTION

Used 1996 Chevrolet Corvette for sale in OFallon, Illinois

For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport. This is one of only 1,000 built in 1996 and was the first year of the Grand Sport since the Grand Sports of 1963. Some would say this is the first Grand Sport production car ever as the 63s were constructed for prototype racing only and not sold to the general public. The year is 1996 and the Corvette has said goodbye to the ZR-1 that was produced from 1990 to 1995. The replacement Grand Sport is powered by the less complex LT4 V8 and backed by a 6-speed manual transmission. Chevy underrated the LT4 at 330 horsepower in an effort to not overshadow the new LS1 engine debuting the next year for the C5 Corvette. True power for the LT4 was much closer to 380 horsepower and the new LS1 at 345. The Grand Sport was only available in a unique Admiral Blue and white color scheme with red hash marks painted onto the drivers front fender. This was an old racing theme, marking the side of the car that the driver is seated. If you were racing a right hand drive car, you guessed it; it would be on the right side fender. The Grand Sport was also fitted with giant rubber and required rear fender flairs to accommodate 315/35R17s. The 275/40R17s were fitted to the front and did not require fender flairs. This beautiful example has been very well cared for over the years while still being carefully enjoyed. Near new high performance Good Year rubber is at all four corners and the A/C unit was just recharged and is blowing cold. Current miles are showing 44,306. This is a very fun and capable sports car that is one of the few collectibles from the 90s. A lot of them seem to be equipped with red leather, this one is fitted with black leather and is a bit less loud than the all red.
