In 1984, Chevrolet completely redesigned the Corvette for its fourth generation resulting in an iconic evolution that would take America’s Sports Car through the next 12 years with several special models, two Pace Car Editions, and two Anniversary Editions.
1988 and 1993 marked the 35th and 40th Anniversary Editions for the Corvette, respectively. However, with the exception of a broad range of special models, changes over the generation were mild and the Corvette really capitalized on what proved to be a winning combination of style and performance. This made the C4 Corvette a favorite among many enthusiasts and these cars, especially the special editions, carry a lot of nostalgia even today. Which begs the question, if you were given the choice between the two Anniversary Editions which would you add to your garage? Raleigh Classic Car Auctions is offering just that opportunity. Two stunning Anniversary Editions, both with low mileage and both in incredible condition.
This Ruby Red Pearl 1993 40th Anniversary Chevrolet Corvette features a 5.7-liter 300-horsepower V8 engine and a 6-speed manual transmission under the hood. It comes with a glass top and a body colored top so you can choose the style that best suits you. Inside, a red leather interior is in excellent condition and specially embroidered seats announce a proud heritage. Other options include power everything, air conditioning, cruise control, and dual electric remote heated outside mirrors. With just 27k-actual miles on the clock, it would be hard for any enthusiast to pass up this opportunity.
Sharing many of the same options, this 1988 Chevrolet 35th Anniversary Corvette is also a good find. Adding to its rare 1 of just 2,050 pedigree, it has only been driven just 2,077 actual miles! It is equipped with a 240-horsepower V8 engine and an automatic transmission. If you can’t decide which one you like best, don’t worry you’re not alone. Both of these Corvettes would make excellent additions to any collection. Who knows? Maybe even the same collection?!
