1996 Z-16 GRAND SPORT CORVETTE COUPE

1 of 1000

1996 Grand Sport Corvette in the Admiral Blue with white center stripe and 2 red fender hash marks. One owner with 45K on it. This model came with the black interior but you could get it with a red interior.

GM made 1000 units all with a special VIN number. This is number 330 of the 1000 units built. This is the last year for the C4 Corvette generation.

All came with LT4 engines producing 330 horses and 340 lbs of torque.

All came with a 6 Speed ZF transmission as well.

The wheels are fronts at 17x9.5 and the rear are 17X11.

Massive 315 tires on the rear standard.

Love the patriotic look of it.

Seat embroidered with Grand Sport

This is what the ALLEN'S Exhaust unit looks like from EBay, great person to deal with. Even gives a Corvette Discount. We need all the help we can get.

I had the stock mufflers removed and installed this nice unit from ALLEN'S Exhaust.

It's called their CHAMBERED MUFFLERS and tip package.

If you recall from the 60's GM had a CHAMBERED EXHAUST system you could order on like the 1969 Z28 and the exhaust looks like someone went nuts with a hammer and just bent the pipe here and there all the way front to back. This is just a short section of Chambered Exhaust which ACTS like the muffler.

This unit removed a LOT of weight on each side and also opened up the exhaust now to where this Corvette sounds like a Corvette. The stock mufflers were so quiet yet they had a drone which was odd for OEM.

I am so pleased with the final result as far as sound and looks. The installer did an excellent job mounting. The whole swap cost $280. I didn't want the expense of a complete exhaust system and this swap was the best bang for my buck.

Compare the old square black exhaust to the new oval chrome tips. For me it was the best change I made in the car so far. Now on to bigger and more costly projects.

Hi HO away my money goes.................
