After a model run of over a decade, production of the C4 Corvette finally came to an end in ’96.  Not wanting to let this occasion pass without some commemoration, the folks a Chevy decided that two special C4’s were in order!  The first being the Collector Edition, which came with a Sebring Silver Metallic exterior and a choice of a Black, Gray or Red interior.  What set this model apart besides the color were chrome “C.E.” badges, 5-spoke ZR-1 style wheels, Black brake calipers with Corvette lettering and Sport seats with “Collector Edition” embroidered on the headrests.  But, not wanting to be outdone, there was one more very special Corvette to be introduced this year . . .

When Corvette aficionados hear the phrase “Grand Sport”, it congers up images of Corvette’s racing glory days when the original Grand Sport racer was brought out to compete with Shelby’s Cobra and everything Ferrari threw at it back in ’63!

The ’96 Grand Sport was a street Corvette with racing “bones”.  The heart of the beast was the new, one year only LT4 engine.  Essentially a “hot rodded” version of the excellent LT1 used from ’92-’96.  The LT4 was (conservatively) rated at 330hp.  It had higher compression, a new aluminum head design, Crane roller rocker arms, revised camshaft profile and some various other tweaks.  The engine was only available with a 6-spd. manual transmission, thus all Grand Sports were manual transmission cars.  The exterior was painted Admiral Blue with twin “hash marks” in Red on the right front fender.  Interiors were available in Black or Red.  The Grans Sport was available in either Coupe or Convertible, but what further set the Coupe apart was its rear fenders!  The fenders had small “lips” to cover the enormous rear rubber (P315/35 ZR17) and huge 17×11 wheels!  The Convertible Grand Sports used slightly smaller 285/40’s in the rear.

They were truly limited editions with only 1000 total built between Coupe and Convertible..

This beautifull example came to us from a CA. collector.  This one has been driven only 10,455 miles since new and it’s in show condition throughout!  It’s also a Triple Crown Award winner!!  That means the car has been awarded an N.C.R.S. Top Flight, Bloomington Gold, and Chevy Vettefest Gold Spinner Award!  It comes with the awards, original Owner’s Kit, brochure, build sheet and more!
