Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 40th Anniversary
For its 40th anniversary in 1993, Chevrolet produced a special edition featuring a commemorative Ruby Red color, 40th anniversary badges, and embroidered seat backs. The 1993 Corvette also marked the year as the first GM car to feature the Passive Keyless Entry system. Like all special edition Corvettes, they were snatched up quickly by eager enthusiasts and many were driven extensively. However, some, like the example offered here, had the benefit of careful and thoughtful ownership, which would greatly work to preserve these anniversary editions for later enthusiasts and collectors.
300 bhp, 350.0 cu. in. OHV V-8 engine, four-speed automatic transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, independent rear suspension with transverse leaf spring, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 96.2 in.
