We visited the online inventory from one of the nation’s top resellers of classic and modern-day Corvettes and found three highly collectible Corvettes that we would love to own. Check out our three favorites that are available for sale right now!
1996 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible
The 1996 Corvette Grand Sport is one of the more unique special editions to be manufactured by Chevrolet over the Corvette’s nearly 70-year history. It was one of two special editions offered as the swan song for the long-running C4 generation as it was offered alongside the Sebring Silver Collector’s Edition in the model’s final year.
The Admiral Blue Grand Sports excited Corvette fans right from the get-go as Chevrolet resurrected the model name from Zora Arkus-Duntov’s legendary racing Grand Sports from the early 1960s. Somehow, Corvette Engineers were able to certify a new engine specially for the Grand Sport despite it being a one-year-only option. Created from the 300-hp LT1, the LT4 had a higher compression and newly designed aluminum heads, Crane roller rocker arms, and revised camshaft design which brought the power level up to 330-horsepower. Other features included the black-painted ZR-1 wheels which required mini-flares over the rear tires, along with the unique full-body white racing stripe with red hash marks on the front fenders. Offered exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission, it was limited to just 1,000 total units.
This 1996 Corvette Grand Sport Convertible offered by Corvette Mike was acquired by the original owner who only put 19,277 miles on the odometer. This GS is #117 in the series and is fully documented with all books, manuals, original window sticker, build sheet, and more. Plus, it received a high score from the NCRS who awarded it Top Flight status. Celebrate the C4’s end of the line by adding this highly collectible Grand Sport to your stable. Offered for $52,900.
2017 Corvette Z06 Convertible
Once upon a time the Corvette Z06 was only available as a hardtop and the only choice of transmissions was the 6-speed manual. But thanks to customer’s input, Chevrolet offered the C7 Corvette Z06 with a Convertible option, along with your choice of a 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic with paddle shifts. The Z06 models were powered by Chevy’s supercharged LT4 V8 that offered 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
This Blade Silver Metallic 2017 Corvette Z06 Convertible is nearly brand new with only 434 miles on the odometer. Equipped with the 8-Speed automatic, it features the 3LZ premium equipment group and the Spice Red Design Package which added the Spice Red dipped interior and a Red Convertible top. Only 307 total Corvettes were produced in 2017 with the Spice Red Design Package, and this Corvette Z06 Convertible is one of just 36 with the unique combination. Also optioned on this Corvette Z06 are the competition sport seats and it features the J57 Brake package which added the Brembo carbon-ceramic brake rotors for maximum fade resistance during repeated hard braking. Included in the Z07 package, the J57 brakes were also offered as a stand-alone option for a premium price of $7,495.
Breaking news, Corvette Mike just got the consent of the owner to discount this C7 from the original asking price of $109,000 down to $99,888. Don’t let this highly-optioned and powerful 2017 Corvette Z06 pass you by! Contact Corvette Mike today.
2021 Corvette Stingray Convertible
There’s a new saying among Corvette enthusiasts going around these days that basically says once you’ve driven the all-new C8 Corvette, it’s hard to go back to driving anything else. Chevrolet took a chance by going with the mid-engine configuration for the first time in 67 years and it’s a gamble that has paid off big time. The C8 Corvettes are now the fastest-selling vehicles in America and you can bet this 2021 Corvette Stingray Convertible offered by Corvette Mike won’t be around for long.
This 2021 Corvette Stingray Convertible comes with the 6.2L LT2 V8 engine that offers 495 hp and a dual-clutch 8-speed transmission that brings lightning-fast shifts. This C8 is by far the most highly optioned MSRP we have seen. It is outfitted in Silver Flare Metallic with Sky Cool Gray interior. It comes loaded with the Z51 Performance Package with Magnetic Selective Ride Control, the 3LT equipment group, and the E60 adjustable height front axle lift. Other options include 19/20″ Trident five-spoke Gray painted aluminum machined-face wheels with silver center caps and the Stingray logo, and more. It’s the first-ever retractable hardtop offered on a Corvette and it is powered by six individual motors that can raise or lower the roof in 16-seconds even at speeds of up to 30 MPH.
This 2021 Corvette Stingray was produced just a couple months ago and only shows 8 miles on the odometer so you are essentially purchasing a brand new C8 Corvette without waiting nearly a year to drive it.
