Default VA: 1995 Corvette Base Coupe 6spd

For Sale: 1995 Corvette Base Coupe in VA
6 Spd Manual
98,603 miles. Will continue to go up slowly as I drive it on occasion.
$8000

First, if youíre question is why would I buy this C4 over the thousands of others out there, this is itÖ hands down the nicest feature on this car compared to other C4s is the paint. Iíve tried to capture in pictures the chromatic nature of this paint job, but honestly pictures donít do it justice. It never ceases to get compliments when driven. There is a lot of metal flake in the paint and it shifts as the angle of the sun changes. As a base however, it is Torch Red with a red/black interior. There are a few paint chips from being a semi-daily driver. Those arenít really noticeable unless you are detailing the car or giving it a close look.

Second, and just as important, there are no codes on the car. It runs perfect. Over the years Iíve replaced parts as needed and kept her running as it should. I have spent many hours behind the wheel on trips to West Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina (for the Dragon). Iíve never had a problem with it on a long trip and wouldnít hesitate to get behind the wheel for another trip. In our 6 years together, Iíve put 16,000 miles on the her.

Other than my long trips when weather can be unexpected, the car lives in the garage and does not go out in the rain. Each winter itís cleaned up and stored until the weather is cleared and warm enough to start driving again.

The Targa has the typical spider webbing due to its age. No actual cracks or leaks from the glass, but they are there. I spend 90% of my time driving without a top and have lived with it for the last 6 years.

The radio works, but has static and pops. Iíve replaced the Bose speaker/amp combination twice in the rear speakers (per the forum) and it didnít solve the problem. When I first got the car, I was convinced Iíd replace the stereo with a more modern one. Since then, Iíve learned Iíd rather have the top off and enjoy the sound of the exhaust.

I have the car fax from when I purchased the car in photos below. Nothing has changed during my ownership other than the miles going up a little. That said youíre welcome to re-run it and verify.

Why is it up for sale? Iím retiring. Iíve got to sell my house here in Virginia and the money from the sale is to close the loose ends on this house.
Torch Red base color.

Took this after the Torch Red photo, just walked to a different angle on the car.

Borla exhaust and K&N Filter are the only "mods" to the car

I had a torch red '95 coupe and it was a great car! What color is the paint now? Almost looks like Inferno Orange Metallic? Beautiful car GLWS!

I had a 2010 Raptor in a very similar color and the pictures of the two side by side were awesome. Ford Called it Molten Orange. Seems like as good a name as any to me since I had never tried to name it before.

What always struck me was how it could easily pass as Torch Red if you looked at it from one angle, but it doesn't stay that way as you or the car move. I know nearly nothing about paint, so to me it was just impressive that they can do stuff like that.
