The Kerbeck Heritage Collection is proud to present for your consideration, a 1996 Corvette Grand Sport convertible. When it comes to Corvette icons, one of the most historic names has been Grand Sport.
A little background: The total Grand Sport 1996 production was 1,000 units: 810 were Coupes and 190 were Convertibles. The Grand Sport package, going at nearly $5,000 extra, included the new version of the 350 motor, LT4, pumping out 30 more HP than the base LT1 motor. The new LT4 was rated at 330 HP and was packaged with the 6-speed manual transmission. The Grand Sport paint, of course, payed homage to the original 1963 version, with Admiral Blue with a big white center stripe and special detailing like red hash marks on the driver’s front fender.
According to the Official Grand Sport Registry, only 53 1996 Grand Sport Convertibles were built with the highly sought after red interior making it the rarest of the C4 Grand Sport breed. When you combine that rare red interior with the F45 Magnetic Select Ride Suspension and Spare Tire Delete option, this 1996 Corvette Grand Sport is believed to be one of only 11 built with this combination of equipment.
Providence: This specific car was originally ordered by Kerbeck Chevrolet who was (and still is) the largest Corvette dealership in the world. Dealer Principle George Kerbeck personally ordered this car to be his own, personal demonstrator. As a Corvette lover himself, he had the foresight to order the spare tire delete knowing how rare it would make this car. During the time this car was at Kerbeck Corvette, the car was used in many parades and promotional events. In the photo gallery it can be seen with Mr. Kerbeck as he receives an award for being the world’s largest Corvette Dealership of 1995. Another photo show the car with the entire Kerbeck Corvette sales team at the time.
After driving the car daily for many months, Mr. Kerbeck offered the car up for sale where it was immediately purchased by another lover of special Corvettes. Twelve years later, the original buyer of this car brought it back to Kerbeck in Atlantic City where he traded it in for another rare Corvette. Mr. Kerbeck again took this car and drove it as his demonstrator for a short time before retiring it and adding it to the Kerbeck Heritage Collection.
This car comes with the window sticker, owner’s manual and it has 4 brand-new, OEM Goodyear Run Flat Tires which are difficult to find. We hope this rare Corvette finds a home in the collection of a true Corvette lover who understands what a piece of history this vehicle is. This vehicle is being sold as is.
