With its fuel-injected V8 power, the rarely-seen six-speed, a loaded luxury interior, and a low 49k miles on the odometer, this 1998 Chevrolet Corvette convertible has that ideal balance of performance pedigree and an irresistible price.
There's something special about the Corvette's Sebring Silver that really has our attention. The metallic elements in the precious metal paint love looking sophisticated while loving the sunshine. Of course, our impression might also be from the fact that this factory-applied color has received excellent care over the years. It has the right look you want in a low-mileage garage-kept car. And when it comes to shine, a proper American classic deserves some chrome. So this one has the deluxe high-polish five-spoke wheels. You'll also love the few subtle extra aggressive accents like the large and bright quad exhaust tips. But the best feature of this C5 is the distinctive low, long hood of the Corvette that gives it a classic appearance connecting it with previous generations. It's this lineage that lets us know how much of a modern classic we're looking at today. And since this is preparing to cross the 25-year threshold, it will soon be eligible for classic car registration/plates in many areas.
Black always looks stylish against silver, and so it's not only the roof color, but also there's a full blackout interior. It means this looks tasteful with the roof up or down. Plus, low mileage means little seat time. That's why the black leather looks so nice. The leather buckets strike a nice balance between sports car snug and all-day comfortable. C5 Corvettes come loaded right out of the box, and this one has plenty of great modern features. It includes power seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual airbags, power windows, power locks, an anti-theft system, keyless entry, and dual-zone automatic A/C climate control. And you have an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to play through Bose speakers. There's a real trunk in the C5, which makes it the perfect adventure companion. On any golf weekend, you can carry a bag of clubs and luggage, and there's still room to take down the roof so you can let the wind flow freely during your getaway.
The C5 Corvette's 5.7-liter LS1 V8 is the reason why this one is such a legend. The fuel-injected powerhouse brought Chevrolet into the modern era of performance. This one has a stock and clean look that fits with this low-mileage car's well-respected feeling. They also unleashed some added power with an upgraded RM Racing air intake and a set of block-hugging headers. And the dual exhaust with Borla mufflers gives the V8 an intoxicating tune. Best of all, you have full control of the power and soundtrack thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. Power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, a limited-slip rear, and a fully independent double-wishbone suspension make for an ideal driver for trips near or far.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet and two sets of keys. This is a terrific mix of proper classic and all-around driver appeal. Call today!!!
