9,523 ACTUAL MILES, 2-OWNER, CLEAN CARFAX, LOADED, LIKE NEW, 5.7L LS1, 6-SPEED!
This fantastic 2002 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is just the kind of gently used Corvette you want for a hobby car. Beautifully preserved, low mileage (9526), and no mechanical modifications, you can buy and drive it with confidence. And if you haven't experienced the revelation that is the C5, you're in for a very pleasant surprise. This might just be the biggest bang for the buck in our showroom today.
Magnetic Red always looks awesome, but on the smooth curves of the fifth-generation Corvette, it emphasizes the sports car's lean, mean proportions, adding a hint of elegance along the way. The Corvette DNA is instantly recognizable with the swoopy front end and folding headlights, and four taillights out back make it easy to spot from a distance. Factory paint made huge strides by 2002, and the finish on this C5 is as good as it gets, with a deep shine and virtually no signs of use, even in the usual locations behind the wheels and on the chin. Of course, details like the flared rocker panel moldings probably help keep the bodywork pristine, but there's just no denying that someone has always treated this car like a cherished toy and not a daily driver. In fact, thanks to numerous wax sessions over the years, the finish is probably even better than new, so smooth that water beads and runs off on its own. There are one or two little marks, but you have to be pretty picky to find faults with this beautiful 'Vette.
This Corvette carries the upgraded tan leather Sport bucket seats, which were a notable improvement over the standard flat chairs. There are a few signs that the car has been driven and enjoyed, but there's no damage to the usual high-traffic areas like the driver's seat bolsters or door sills, and it looks like a much younger car. It should look and feel familiar to anyone who has driven a Corvette of any kind, and it's so nice that the door panels don't even show an indentation where a driver's elbow may have rested. Loaded is the only way to describe this C5, which includes dual-zone climate controls, heads-up display, and memory package. Overhead, a beautifully preserved tan canvas top stows easily, making power assist unnecessary and giving it a sleek appearance when stowed under the hard boot. And the well-appointed trunk is actually big enough to be useful and is fitted with a cargo net and accessory carpeted mat.
Power comes from the legendary LS1, which was a massive upgrade over the previous generation small block. With all-aluminum construction, free-breathing heads, and an aggressive cam, it was both lightweight and powerful, delivering ZR-1 levels of performance without the ZR-1 price tag. The engine bay is clean, with all the factory equipment intact, including the stylish coil covers and revolutionary plastic intake manifold. The only modification seems to be an air snorkel, which is easy enough to remove if it's not to your liking. Underneath, it's still spotless, from the hydroformed frame rails to the balsa wood floors, all of which give the C5 a rigid, yet lightweight platform and rides shockingly well for a car with such high levels of performance. The 6-speed manual transaxle is the preferable choice for a Corvette, and it shifts beautifully with light clutch action. Four-wheel discs with ABS and traction control hide behind stylish polished forged alloy wheels wearing standard Goodyear run-flat radials.
Documented with the original manuals, this is a like-new Corvette. The C5 is a no-compromises performance car, and with a top that goes down, it becomes the ultimate summertime fun machine. Call today!
