1993 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Don't purchase a '93 40th Anniversary Edition Corvette and squirrel it away in a warehouse hoping it will make you wealthy. If you want to collect something that really might make a fortune someday, try gold coins, 1950's Eames era furniture, hood ornaments, or a limited run of “Michael Jackson's Neverland” Commemorative plates. This car was made to be driven. It would be a shame to own it and have it any other way.
For consignment, a very nice 1993 40th Anniversary Edition Corvette, all original and all good. This is a jump in, turn the key, and have loads of enjoyment with top up or down kinda car. Pedal to the metal, or lightly tickling it with your toe on a windy undulating drive, only having logged 39,474 miles there is plenty of life to be lived with this Classic Corvette.
All correct 40th Anniversary Corvette badging, stuck to the immaculate Ruby Red fiberglass exterior, and Ruby Red convertible top that performs flawlessly. Integrated matching bumpers very thin in height in the low-slung front, and squared off on the rear, this iconic design “Vette” drips early 90's conventions.
Ruby Red leather buckets with wonderfully pleasing patina show use, but not overuse. Lowering yourself into this cockpit, you will feel like a sports car endurance driver, strapped in but with all the creature comforts: power seat controls, power windows, cruise control, anti-skid mode, climate control, power locks, power mirrors, and a sound system that will be music to your ears. A smattering of black vinyl accents in the form of the center console, door pulls, dash, and armrests, breaks up all the Ruby Red leather and gives the cockpit a very classy yet sporty look. A large information screen is seen, as well as a mixture of analog and orange glow digital gauges.
A 350ci LT1 V8 with electronic fuel injection and a 4-speed automatic transmission, runs and shifts very smoothly, and has been well maintained throughout its life.
Garage kept, would be the way to describe the wonderfully preserved, original rust-free undercarriage. Single fiberglass composite mono leaf spring with unequal length aluminum control arms and stabilizer bar, are up front, and on the rear are fully independent 5 link system with fiberglass single leaf spring, aluminum upper/lower trailing links and a strut tie-rod assembly. Power disc brakes are all around.
I slipped in and lit the candles, and we're off. Me and my cohort took this one through the paces at the Classic Auto Mall test pad, and it performed well. Smooth acceleration, good handling, and a super quick stopper. The suspension is good cruising and handling in a performance situation, so you are treated to the best of both worlds.
Many of the Corvettes we take in here that are from the 90's are driven hard and put up wet. Typically, they were bought by individuals who found success, and wanted a powerful status car they can fool around with, punch the gas put down some rubber, and move on to another vehicle. This car could be described as a favorite toy for its owner, who painstakingly took care of all aspects of the responsibilities that come with a sports car from the early 90's. All original, and all nice… isn't it your time to own a Corvette?
