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 paint, special 40th Anniversary emblems, and stunning Ruby Red interior, these Corvettes truly are a celebration of Corvette history.
Dressed in all Ruby Red, even the red convertible top, this is a shining example of the 40th anniversary Corvette. 57,624 miles on the clock, and it has been well taken care of. An overall clean car, 40th anniversary badging, and a 350 LT1 V8, come celebrate an anniversary right here 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 well in maroon. Cleaner less curved boxier lines dominate the exterior and are even utilized on the rectangular chromed exhaust tips. The iconic finned cove now relegated to the front quarter panels serves to let some fresh air into the engine bay. At one point there was extensive body repair done to the front end and other areas of this car. It was well done and the only way we know is body shop repair invoices. Polished aluminum turbine style wheels are noted on all 4 corners.
Shining Ruby Red leather for the buckets which have all the adjustment controls imbedded within the seats are in beautiful condition. The high backs are embroidered on the headrest with the 40th Anniversary badge. Racing between the buckets toward the dash is the center console, which houses a glovebox, more seat controls, the automatic shifter, and ride control knob. Swooping skyward and curving toward the driver's side 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.
A 350ci LT1 V8 is nicely preserved is within the engine bay and presents very clean with no corrosion and regularly shined plastic parts. This engine is fed by electronic fuel injection and has a 6-speed manual transmission on back. A 3.45 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 in a hurry.
A good driver, good handling, and nicely preserved interior which is original to this car. All mechanicals worked including 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 350 LT1 engine. Put the top down, and start celebrating the 40th anniversary, which the color for this anniversary is… Ruby Red
