NEVER LEFT GA, CLEAN CARFAX, 86K MILES, WELL-MAINTAINED, 5.7L LS1 V8, 6-SPEED!
The C5 Corvette was a massive step forward for the legendary fiberglass sports car, and if you haven't driven one, you don't know just how good they are. This 6-speed 2001 Chevrolet Corvette shows just 86,629 original miles, and represents what might very well be the biggest performance bang for your buck anywhere.
Finished in one of the most appealing of all C5 colors, Magnetic Red, this car gleams in the showroom and looks almost like new, which is true of most late-model Corvettes that have been cherished by dedicated owners. It has been driven enough to keep everything in top condition mechanically and thanks to conscientious maintenance and a lifetime of being a "second" car, the paint shows extremely well. The bodywork, including the optional "stinger" along the sides is beautifully preserved, and it's hard to believe this car is 16 years old. There are almost no scuffs on the chin, no major sandblasting of the rocker panels by the tires, and certainly no marks from parking lot mishaps. You know how challenging colors like this can be to maintain, but nothing looks better than Magnetic Red when it's right, and this car has a fantastic look that seems to defy the passage of time. Go ahead, take another look at it; the C5 is aging rather well, don't you think?
This car's tan leather interior is every bit as nice and with the C5s, GM included most everything that you'd want as standard equipment. However, you're in luck, because this car includes the desirable optional sport seats, which were a big upgrade over the standard pancake-flat buckets. There's some very, very slight wear on the driver's seat, but overall the interior is as well-preserved as the bodywork. You'll never get tired of watching the gauges do their dance every time you start the engine, and there's tons of useful data to be gleaned from the driver information center in the middle of the cluster. This car also offers options like dual zone climate control, Bose AM/FM/CD stereo system, power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, among others. Everything works as it should, as one would expect from such a well-preserved piece. Even the trunk is pretty much like new with a convenient privacy cover to keep valuables out of sight.
The C5's LS1 V8 was another huge step forward. With 350 horsepower in 2001, it was a formidable performer, yet it could still pull down 25 MPG on the highway, something few other cars could match. The LS1 also introduced a plastic intake manifold to control heat and noise, distributorless ignition, and a sophisticated fuel system, all stashed under handsome removable covers with CORVETTE emblazoned on their surface. Oddly enough, the 6-speed was optional and it really makes the car a blast to drive. Ordering the 6-speed also got you acceleration-happy 3.42 gears out, but with the towering overdrive it's a spectacular high-speed cruiser. The engine runs quite well and has not been modified (not even an air filter upgrade) so it will be as reliable as an anvil for years to come. Even the undercarriage is tidy, with signs of use, but never any winter weather or other notable issues. Optional polished forged aluminum wheels wear correctly-sized 245/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear Michelin performance radials.
If you're looking for a clean C5, they don't come better than this and it's shocking that this much performance is available for so little cash. Call today!
