ONLY 25K ORIGINAL MILES, WELL OPTIONED VETTE, ORIGINAL WINDOW STICKER, POWER TOP
We frequently get asked to recommend a good car for a good price, and while there are literally hundreds of cars to choose from in our inventory, it's pretty hard to beat the bang for the buck that this 2005 Chevrolet Corvette convertible represents. It's got low mileage, an awesome color combination, and just about every option you could get, including a power convertible top!
The gorgeous Sunset Orange Metallic paint looks particularly good on the C6 Corvette's bodywork, accentuating the side cove and curvaceous quarter panels with a hint of gold under the surface. With just 24,557 actual miles, this one has probably only seen rain a handful of times, if that, and as a result looks almost new in every way. Like most Corvette owners, the guy who owned this car was meticulous about maintenance, keeping it washed and waxed to a high shine. There might be one or two indications that it's been driven, but if you want clean, unaltered, and brightly polished, this 'Vette definitely stands out. This is one of those times when you can put depreciation and a new model to work, because the C6 is still gorgeous, still fast, and still a joy to drive but now you can do it for a 60% discount.
With the 1SB preferred equipment package, this Corvette convertible packs just about every option you could get. The Ebony leather seats are power actuated, of course, and they're a vast improvement over the relatively flat chairs that came in the C5. Power windows, locks, mirrors, and the aforementioned seats, cruise control, and a heads-up display are all part of the package. There's a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system, a tilt and telescoping wheel, and even a defogger in the convertible top's glass rear window. The driver's seat shows some very minor signs of use, but otherwise, it's pretty much in as-new condition and everything works as it should. We mentioned that it comes with an optional power convertible top, which might be overkill in a Corvette, but it sure is cool to watch it fold itself out of sight below the rear deck, which latches securely to the "waterfall" between the seats. And this is one Corvette convertible that is actually practical, with a decent-sized trunk that's well-shaped for some luggage on a road trip.
The Corvette was powered by a 6.0 liter LS2 V8, which has proven itself to be not only powerful, but reliable as well. Unlike so many of its siblings, this one remains 100% stock, including the air filter, so no worries about aftermarket parts causing headaches down the road. Turn the key and it barks to life and settles into an instant, easy idle, so smooth that it's hard to believe how much horsepower is lurking within. The 6-speed automatic overdrive transmission always seems to be in the right gear, and while some folks may frown on an self-shifting Corvette, we might remind you that this is how the original was equipped and the quick-witted auto 'box doesn't give up much to the manual. The suspension is Corvette capable with massive disc brakes at all four corners, so you'll have to do something seriously stupid to get in trouble with this car. Optional 3.15 gears out back make the automatic feel snappy off the line and the polished factory alloys are unmarked and carry 245/40/18 front and 285/35/19 rear Michelin radials.
Documented with the original window sticker and owner's manual, this highly-optioned C6 convertible represents the biggest bang for the buck in the showroom today. Call now!
