Description

VERY CLEAN/STOCK FRC W/ JUST 27K MLS, CLEAN HISTORY, WELL DOC'D INCL BUILD SHEET

This 2000 Chevrolet Corvette fixed-roof coupe, or FRC, represents the first, last, and only time the Corvette has been offered in three distinct body styles. The FRC was intended to be lighter, faster, and cheaper than the rest of the Corvette lineup, and it facilitated the arrival of the Z06, which was indeed faster and lighter than its siblings. Great performance, low mileage, and a reasonable price make this FRC a winner.

The FRC wasn't a big seller so finding one like this is a relatively rare occasion. In its second year, 2000, the fixed-roof coupe was only offered in a few colors, with black being an obvious choice. This one looks purposeful and lean, and most folks will do a double-take when they see it hammering down the road, as most have never seen the FRC body style up close. It's in great condition, pretty much what you'd expect from a car with only 27,125 original miles, and the only notable demerits are some swirl marks that are all but impossible to avoid on a black car. Otherwise, it's in fantastic condition and shows off the excellent build quality for which the C5 was justifiably famous. There are no modifications, no add-ons, just clean OEM styling and hardware that makes this a car that should appeal to the serious Corvette fan. If you want someone else's abused car with questionable mods, they're out there, but untouched cars like this are getting rarer by the day.

The only interior you could get in a FRC was black leather with standard bucket seats and a 6-speed manual. It was all part of the goal to build a stripped-down street fighter, and we have to say we like the concept. This interior remains in very good shape with only very light comfort marks on the driver's seat, all well in line with its age and mileage. The carpets are unmarked thanks to a set of fitted floor mats and the door panels are like new. Standard equipment included A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a power driver's seat, and that's pretty much how this one is outfitted. There's an optional Bose AM/FM/CD stereo system that sounds quite good, and the shifter has been upgraded to a Hurst short-throw. The FRC also received a real trunk that's big enough for luggage and gear for a long road trip.

The FRC is still a C5, so that means a silky-smooth and torquey LS1 V8. The all-aluminum 5.7 liter engine was a real revolution when it hit the streets, and while we take it for granted to day, cars like this FRC were quite formidable. Even today, it delivers a heavy punch of acceleration at just about any speed and thanks to the FRC's lighter curb weight, it's the fastest C5 save for the Z06. As I mentioned, there are no modifications here, not even an upgraded air filter or exhaust system, so you know it's been treated well. It starts easily and idles perfectly, as you'd expect, and if you take it easy on the throttle, you'll probably find that mid-20s fuel economy is possible. The suspension was a bit more aggressive than the standard setup and 4-wheel disc brakes were, of course, standard equipment. The gorgeous forged alloy wheels were standard, but the polished finish was optional, and it really dresses the black car up nicely. Standard 245/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear Nitto performance radials are a nice improvement over the run-flats.

Documented with a build sheet and window sticker, this is one you can enjoy and hope that it turns into a future collectable. After all, owning a Corvette is always a pleasure, so go out and have some fun! Call today!
