1993 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1993 marked the fourth decade of America's sports car with a very special commemorative edition- the 40th Anniversary Edition. This was an option package that was made available on all 1993 Corvette models, Coupe, Convertible, and ZR-1. All 40th Anniversary Edition Corvettes (and only 40th Anniversary Edition Corvettes) are Ruby Red from the inside out. With a unique deep-shining metallic, special 40th anniversary emblems, and stunning ruby red interior, these Corvettes truly are a celebration of Corvette history.
Dressed in all Ruby Red this is a shining example of the 40th Anniversary Corvette. 46,958 miles is low for a 1993, and it has been well taken care of. An overall clean car, 40th Anniversary badging, and a 5.7-liter V8, grab a piece of history right here in our halls at Classic Auto Mall.
As were all 40th anniversary Corvettes, this one is covered in Ruby Red respray, and it is all good. Minor scratches here and there, but all functioning well. Even the cloth convertible top is presenting in maroon. Cleaner less curved boxier lines dominate the exterior and are even utilized on the rectangular chromed exhaust tips. A black luggage rack has been added to the trunk and this fronts a spoiler on the rear. Polish aluminum turbine style wheels are noted on all 4 corners.
Shining Ruby Red leather for the buckets which shown a little patina and some minor folding. These high backs are embroidered on the headrest with the 40th Anniversary badge. The seats are power seats. Racing between the buckets toward the dash is the center console, which houses a glovebox, seat controls, the automatic shifter and ride control knob. Swooping skyward and curving toward the driver's side it rolls upward and forms the instrument cluster. Pre digital dash, analog gauges are noted. There is an information center in the middle of the dash, however it is only a cluster of warning lights and not a full screen (give it time they were working on it!) Nice Ruby Red carpet covers the floors, and door panels, which have a black accenting that flows toward the black dash.
The original numbers matching 5.7 Liter V8 nicely preserved is within the engine bay, which presents very clean…no corrosion and regularly shined plastic parts. This engine is fed by electronic fuel injection and has a 4-speed automatic transmission on back. A 2.73 rear axle completes the drivetrain package.
Underneath all clean with no rust surface or otherwise. Good suspension (C4 all around) and power disc brakes to stop these 17-inch wheels all around.
A good driver, good handling, and nicely preserved interior which is original to this car. All mechanicals worked including the A/C, and power steering makes this car a breeze to drive, and so does putting the convertible top down!
Clean, buttoned up 40th Anniversary car in its correct colors, correct badging, and the 5.7 Liter V8. Put the top down and start living large on the life scale.
