LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport 

  The Grand Sport was a limited-edition model with a total production output of just 1,000 units divided between 810 coupes and only 190 convertibles. The Grand Sport paid homage to the legendary competition Corvette of the same name that was raced in the 1963 season with drivers Jim Hall, Roger Penske, Augie Pabst and Dick Thompson. The 1996 Grand Sport—RPO Z16—was visually identifiable by its exclusive paint livery in Admiral Blue with a white stripe and bright red hashes across the left front fender.

  The Grand Sport package was more than just a paint scheme, it has the performance to match to live up to its heritage. GM devised another mighty-mouse powerhouse in the LT4. Similar to the LT1 dimensionally, the LT4 used upgrades to achieve a 30hp gain over the LT1 and top the dyno scales at 330 hp at 5,800 rpm and 340 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm. Changes to the heads, intake, and camshaft were responsible for the increase. Slightly larger valves, more lift on a roller-chain-actuated camshaft, and roller rocker arms helped this engine spin up another 600 rpm over the LT1. While the LT4 was available in any Corvette, it was highlighted in the '96 Grand Sport package; and any LT4, whether in a Grand Sport or not, had the Grand Sport throttle-body tag. Available only with the mandatory 6-speed manual, the Grand Sport also featured the black 5-spoke ZR1-style wheels with ultra-wide P315/35ZRx17 rear tires and add-on rear fender flares.

  Only one of only 190 convertible examples ever built, the example offered here for sale has been collector owned since new, traveling a mere 652 miles since it rolled off the Bowling Green assembly line. Presented in the Grand Sport exclusive color combination of Admiral Blue with white stripes and a matching white soft top, it is factory optioned with a Delco Bose stereo, six-way power driver’s seat, cruise control, and halogen headlights. 

  Included with the sale are the owner’s manuals, warranty booklet, two keys with fobs and more. These C4 Grand Sport Corvettes are the best of their generation and will continue to be appreciated for years to come!
