Backstory from the owner...
You are looking for the finest, best maintained 40th Anniversary Corvette Convertible you can find. You are here because the excellence found in your neck of the woods, by any measure, is a joke. I know exactly how you feel. I attend specialty and dealer-only auctions every week searching for the best of the best in what I call "niche autos." I scan lists of over 3,000 vehicles locally each week and select cars I've come to know are hard to find and that fit my business model of marketing exclusively on eBay. C4 Corvettes make it onto my own list every time they show up but just a tiny fraction actually turn out to be worthy my money. During the past 14 years I've seen 100 or more Corvettes every single year and what that means for you is; I have looked at, touched, smelled and walked away from a lot of Corvettes. I am extremely picky about what to buy and this 40th is one of a precious handful nice enough to justify buying. Past ownership, service history and condition, condition, condition are what matters. High performance vehicles are not always treated well, but a precious few are taken care of and given proper respect. Beautiful paint, spectacular interior, service history and an absolute knock-out to see in person - as good as my pictures are, they can't possibly convey the awesome visual impact this car has in real life. What else could you want? A great deal? I have that covered too but you will not be purchasing this fine automobile for wholesale or even low book value. You already know you get what you pay for and if you want true excellence, service quality and exceptional condition, this Corvette 40th Anniversary Edition represents an extremely rare opportunity. Read what we have to say, examine every picture in detail, see the amazing quality up close and personal and then make your call and give me an offer. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

I want my my clients to know who they are trying to make a deal with. I want to know their real intent to buy also. This equation does not exist with "What's your best price?" and no personal contact. I have gone to great lengths to find this incredible vehicle, make sure it's the best it can be for you and present it in a way that no other seller does online. I do that so we can talk, make a clear deal, fair for both sides and watch a happy buyer enjoy their new ride. If you just don't have the gumption to make contact and you just want an idea of price, look at what the market values posted above say, they are fairly accurate on AVERAGE vehicles across the US. If you think this vehicle is average, above or below, bid accordingly or. . . pick up the phone and have a pleasant conversation with a real enthusiast that can make your deal on the spot.

It's getting to be rare to find a C4 Corvette these days in any condition that I would normally find any interest in buying. So, when this Corvette cam available to me, not only was the condition extremely fine, but to find a 40th Anniversary Edition triple Ruby convertible with a 6-Speed, as you already know, that is like finding the needle in the haystack. Such a pretty car. Love the Decade Edition cars, this one will be a true collector car as it must have been for it's previous owner. I am all about condition and prior ownership tells me everything about the cars I buy. This owner's son worked at Carmax and decided to trade it in for a truck he needed more. It was a car he cared for immensely and it shows. Stunning condition in and our and mechanically as well. The day after I bought the car, I immediately took it right to the local Chevrolet Dealer in Henderson and requested a full inspection and diagnosis to show me if the car needed anything. Aside from a lube, oil and filter, the car only needed rear brake pads. So they were installed and now the car needs nothing. Ice cold air conditioning, all interior features and exterior features function great. Most important is the exceptional condition from front to back and everywhere in between. Stunningly Beautiful...and a Collector Edition too.
This car has no wreck history, has a perfect Carfax and Autocheck. Tires are like new, drives perfectly and you'd be very proud to add it to a collection. Is it flawless? No, remember, it still has over 40k miles on it. The are a handful of small tiny chips out of the paint on the hood and nose. So small though that they are hardly noticeable. Most less than the head of a pin. There's not so many that you can count them, it's not riddled by any means. Touch them up and it would look near perfect. The pictures don't hide anything so look at all the pictures and you will see that the car is near flawless.
This car is not just spectacular on the outside, but under the hood and inside the car and even underneath the car, it's show quality beautiful. Over the last ten years I have seen and had a few 40th Anniversary Corvettes, never a convertible with the manual transmission. There was not a lot of those produced and this would be the collectors dream for this vintage if you are looking for the Holy Grail of C4s.
The C4s are getting tougher and tougher to find in collector quality condition. Finding one that is a 40th Anniversary Edition with all the goodie, a rare chance for you to seize. I hope my model doesn't distract you or get you whacked upside the back of you head for looking or starring, but there is only 10 pictures of her with the car and nearly 140 of the car. So look through and see every inch of the car and read the details, I am all about the best of the best cars and this one will make you a very proud owner for sure. Read on...

Owners Manuals are in the armrest and there are some original records too.
A note from the owner.
I am a “used car dealer” but before that, I’m an automobile enthusiast. I love original rare and high quality modified vintage cars and over the past decade I’ve been in business, have come to appreciate an expanding selection of high-demand, high value vehicles. I specialize in and am always on the lookout for cars and trucks that were cherished by their previous owners. I have an experienced eye for quality but I’ve discovered that my preferred buyer can instantly discern such a vehicle and I have therefore, built my business and reputation around finding these kinds of cars for this type of customer. Super low miles and/or gentle ownership are strict requirements but a car must do something for me on a personal level if there is any hope of convincing you, the bidder, that this is an above average, exceptional vehicle. If nothing about the car excites me, it probably won’t do much for you either and I would soon be out of business.
With just four employees and no sales people, I realize how unusual a “dealership” like mine may at first glance appear. It has taken great care and effort to create such an organization and often, an unusually high investment in a particular car we are about to list. To sell the best it is critical to have a trusted expert in my corner and Chris, owner of A-Best Auto Repair in Henderson, Nevada has my back. He and his crew can fix anything; from a low budget beater to the absolute most expensive exotic you can name, no job is too big and no small detail unimportant. They do an exhaustive 130 point inspection on each and every vehicle and nothing escapes their methodical investigation. Experience has shown that everything I spend making a car truly “right” will come back to me not only with a higher selling price, but a happy customer that says good things about me. Moreover; it allows my writer to describe the car with ease and confidence, something that simply is not possible unless he thinks it is true. If major issues are found or the cost of fixing the car the way it should be makes it too expensive to sell, my choice is an easy one. I simply absorb a few hundred dollars loss for my trouble and sell it at auction.
After the vehicle is fully sorted it arrives at our facility where it encounters the suspicious eye of Tom, my writer that creates the presentations you see on eBay. He believes absolutely nothing I or anyone else tells him about the car as he combs over every inch, researches its history and documents originality and authenticity. Historical significance, rarity, special features, possible modifications and much more are used to accurately describe the vehicle with integrity and honesty. Most important for the potential buyer are the 100 to 150 high resolution pictures that I take myself. The pricey equipment I use would be right at home in the hands of the very best professional photographers and I’ve developed a logical format that walks you around the entire vehicle with close-up shots of every square inch. I provide detailed views of the interior, under the hood and then put it on a lift to show the undercarriage and confirm that the beauty of the car you are considering is not merely skin deep. Even our detailers are enthusiastic about the cars they so meticulously clean. This reconditioning can sometimes take several days and I’ve converted a paint booth, especially prepared for the professional clay bar and polishing each car lovingly receives.
Usually, I’ll also include a high definition video that shows the car doing its thing. If it’s a fast car, we film it going fast. If it’s a 4x4 you’ll see it crawling up a hill. In every case you will hear things like a rumbling exhaust, working sound system and watch the temperature fall on a digital, laser thermometer pointed at an air conditioning vent. How many “dealers” will video a Lotus Esprit doing a buck-eighty? We do.
No “dealer,” on-line or in the real world, takes it to this level. No other seller or organization provides you, the buyer, with so much information. I do this because it is the only way I can convince a person; often a world away, unable to touch or feel their purchase, that my vehicle is for real and what I say is the truth. All the above is necessary for me to stay in business while keeping integrity intact. I want every buyer to be happy and I need glowing feedback on eBay. To accomplish that I need satisfied customers that are as thrilled with their purchase as I was when I bought it.
If you have any questions at all, please call me on my cell at: 702-353-7500. If your inquiry is sincere and your offer serious, you’ll find me the most accommodating business partner you’ve ever dealt with. If you call or e-mail asking for my reserve or “what is my bottom line” I will be looking for ways to politely end the conversation. Until you are ready to actually pull the trigger, I will happily quote you the absolute highest nationally advertised suggested retail price I can find – a number we both know will not buy the car so, don’t waste your time, or mine. I am after all, a “used car dealer.”
Serious buyers know the maximum they can offer. I then must simply decide if I can sell for that number.
If you hit the reserve, the decision is no longer mine. I must sell at that number.
