Default New to me 96 CE LT4 / ZF6 conv.

Been a member for a while back when I was deep on the hunt for a C4, priorities changed, but a couple of weeks ago a Sebring silver CE ragtop came into my life at a price that made it worth the effort.

I fought the car onto my tilt deck with the winch, certain it's 5 year hibernation had resulted in a stuck and then broken parking brake cable.....only to find out I was doing it all wrong.

Can't wait to see what else the old girl has to throw me as I take her out of mothballs. Pretty sure she was parked due to a bad slave as the clutch pedal has zero resistance....at least ZF was still using external slaves back in the day!

Default CE LT4 Verts are rare.


Only 469 made. There are 190 GS verts, and few hundred Callaway verts made. These are the most powerful C-4 Convertibles ever made by GM. The few the proud! Welcome to the club. I have CE LT4 vert with gray interior and 55,000 miles . Good Luck with your Vert!

Lt4ever, These C4 clutch hydraulics suck! Give Bill Boudreau at zfdoc a call and he can get you set up. Try to stay away from the Chinese bare cast replacements and get a black painted extruded steel master and slave rebuilt by him if possible.

may I also suggest using DOT 5 silicone based brake fluid in the clutch hydraulics.
