EXTREMELY CLEAN FOR AGE & MILEAGE, GREAT COLOR COMBO, EXCELLENT CAR UNDER $20K!
No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, this is a 1999 Corvette convertible in a fantastic color combination for under twenty grand. It also offers a few modest upgrades to help it stand apart from all the other C5s out there, but in terms of bang for the buck, this car is off-the-charts amazing.
Let's address first things first: this 'Vette has 88,393 miles on the clock but you'd never guess it from the appearance. It's also been maintained by a Corvette fanatic (aren't they all) and has never done double duty as a daily driver. And having spent A LOT of time working on these myself, I can say with confidence that even at this mileage, I doubt you'll have any problems with this 'Vette. We raced them, used them hard, and did everything we could to break them, and failed almost every time. You can buy this one with confidence. The paint remains in great shape, and the elegant Pewter metallic finish is one of the better colors on the C5 shape, giving it a sophisticated, understated look that fits with its grand touring mission. There are a few signs of use, of course, but the impression here is of a car that has been loved all its life and someone spent a lot of Saturday afternoons washing and waxing the bodywork. At a glance, nobody will guess the mileage or the price. In fact, what will likely get everyone talking is the trick projector-style headlight conversion which gives it a unique look very similar to the C5R racers that competed at Le Mans.
The gray leather interior is loaded up with just about every option on the Corvette wish list, including power bucket seats, A/C, cruise control, power windows, locks, and mirrors, traction and stability control, and a great-sounding Bose AM/FM/CD stereo. Have a look at the driver's seat and you'll see a few signs of wear and age, particularly on the outer bolster which sees the most traffic, but it's certainly in line with the car's affordable price tag. The black convertible top probably spent a lot of its life neatly stowed under the hard shell tonneau, and as a result shows minimal wear and soiling and is ready for another decade of fun. Even the trunk looks great with all three of the special compartment lids still in place, as well as the cargo net.
Chevy's LS1 needs no real introduction and after nearly two decades in production (has it really been that long?!?) you know it's one heck of a powerplant. This one appears largely stock throughout, from the plastic coil covers to the air filter assembly up front, which is refreshing given how modification-friendly these cars have become. It's nicely maintained and runs beautifully, as you'd expect. Underneath, there's a 4-speed automatic transmission and the stock exhaust system with polished tips. The balsa wood floors, hydro-formed frame rails, and aluminum suspension components don't look like they've spent much time in foul weather, and with 13-inch rotors, braking performance is still impressive. Stock alloy wheels are curb-rash-free and wear appropriately-sized performance radials.
Forget concerns about mileage and remember that the C5 is still one of the fastest 2-seaters on the road. Get your piece of the Corvette hobby for the price of a garden-variety daily driver. Call today!
