SUPERCLEAN C5, 18K ACTUAL MILES, DRESSED FOR SHOW LS1, 6-SPEED, LOADED, A+!!
The C5 Corvette still represents a ton of performance for the money, and this 2001 Corvette is a little more than your average, run-of-the-mill C5. The color combination is subtle and extremely appealing and it has been tastefully modified to balance looks and performance while avoiding that goofy bolt-on overload that so many of these cars suffer from. It's really quite beautifully done.
Pewter metallic was a staple color during C5 production and it always looks good. It's subtle but people can't resist asking you what color it really is and the depth of the shine and just the right amount of metallic in the finish will have them thinking it's a custom paint job. C5 workmanship was always quite good, and this one looks fantastic thanks to a conscientious owner who has always kept it indoors and protected and covered in multiple coats of wax. With only 18,224 original miles, it was never a daily driver and the low mileage shouldn't be viewed as a lack of use but rather careful use only when conditions were right. It has never been hit or repainted, there are almost no rock chips on the nose, and panel fit is excellent. With the modifications, we can't quite say this one is factory fresh, but condition-wise, you'll be hard-pressed to find a nicer one.
The tan leather interior is a wonderful complement to the Pewter paint, sophisticated and elegant instead of brash and bright. A few tasteful upgrades inside showcase the fact that the Corvette is a great grand touring car, and the two-tone door panels, steering wheel, and center console accents really drive that point home. This one is loaded with just about every available option, including the sport seats, heads-up display, dual zone climate control, and a powerful stereo system. The 6-speed manual transmission was optional, believe it or not, and is fitted with a billet knob that adds a sporting touch. There are also dashboard appliques that further tie the inside and outside together and aftermarket sill protectors ensure that these high-traffic areas remain in top condition. Behind the seats you'll find a pair of chrome roll bars that look extremely cool and they don't interfere at all with the operation of the black canvas convertible top. The trunk is also beautifully finished, complete with a custom carpeted mat and even chrome hinges that are a thoughtful touch.
Chevy's legendary LS1 was the only engine you could get in your C5, but it hardly looks like the same engine here. Dressed up with body-colored coil covers, radiator shroud, and reservoir containers, it has a very high-tech, finished look. Polished stainless covers for the intake and alternator further separate this Corvette from all the others, and this looks like one of those cars that someone spent hours every Saturday cleaning every nook and cranny, because it's just spotless. It runs great, growling through a B&B stainless steel exhaust system, which appears to be the lone mechanical alteration. No surprises underneath, as it's just as clean as you'd expect from a low-mileage car and with the 6-speed manual, it's still a blast to drive, fast or slow. Chrome-plated Z06 wheels are fitted, a nice change from the usual while still being OEM, and it's fitted with 265/40/17 front and 295/35/18 rear Goodyear radials.
This is not your average C5 convertible and it might just be the nicest one we've ever featured. There's a lot more here than you'd expect, especially at this price. Call today!
