With a model year span of 13 years between 1984 and 1996, the fourth-generation Corvette continues to be an enthusiast favorite today. One particularly clean red-on-red example with just 49,995 miles on the odometer caught my eye.
“One owner, one driver, one of a kind,” the listing states. “Came off the Corvette assembly line in Bowling Green, Kentucky on April 15, 1991. I purchased her a few months later.” After over 30 years, that proud original owner is now letting this Corvette find its way into someone else’s garage.
The C4 was designed under the direction of automotive engineer Dave McLellan and leveraged the General Motors Y-platform. Body architecture came from composite panels combined with molded plastic bumpers, and technology was innovative for its time. Among the car’s long list of standard equipment was an electronic dashboard with a liquid crystal display.
Cosmetically, this ‘Vette looks remarkable for being 30 years old. The photos that accompany the listing convey an enthusiast-owned appearance, complete with a Corvette banner hanging from the ceiling and shelving full of detailing supplies in the background. The car is coated in “Corvette Bright Red” paint according to the window sticker, and it is equipped with an optional $650 blue removable roof panel.
“Garaged with car cover, never seen snow or salt, rarely driven in the rain,” the listing states. “Mint classic car.”
Appointments for this Corvette were generous thanks to the Preferred Equipment Group #1 which include electronic air conditioning, a Delco-Bose sound system, and a six-way power driver’s seat. The original stereo has now been swapped out with a Bluetooth-enabled Alpine audio system, and the carpet and upholstery were replaced in 2018.
Accompanying the car are a windshield sunshade, an owner’s manual, a brochure, and the window sticker showing the original $37,369 total vehicle price including destination.
Momentum comes from a 300-horsepower fuel-injected 5.7-liter LT1 V8 paired with a ZF-produced six-speed manual transmission. The listing states that the car received a recent tune-up and has been professionally maintained.
The seller is asking $15,995 for this clean red-on-red C4.
