Our Detroit Showroom is pleased to present this rare 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Indy Pace Car Convertible. This Corvette Pace Car is 1 of only 1,163 Pace Car Replicas produced in 1998 by Chevrolet to commemorate the 82nd running of America's Great Race and 1 of only 547 made with the manual transmission. The color combination selected by Chevrolet is like no other Pace Car in history, and really helps this future collectible stand out! This Pace Car Corvette is a great example of a head-turning car that can actually be driven! There are plenty of these cars out there with single-digit miles that can just sit in your garage while you look at it.... Or you can buy this one and actually not worry about adding miles on the clock! This car is completely stock and un-modified; just the way you want a collectible Corvette to be. This is a 1-owner car, and absolutely no accidents or paint-work in it's history. The 5.7 Liter LS1 V-8 provides excellent power while still retaining drivability for everyone. This baby purrs down the road while getting up to 28 mpg on the highway! Then when you want to get up and go... the 345 horsepower really wakes up and sets you back in the seat! The manual transmission is the perfect solution for those who like the fun and sport of a sports car without having to shift. The car shifts perfectly through the gears with no issues. The special Indy yellow and black leather interior of this car is in very good condition for the miles. Anyone that knows C5 Corvettes knows how the leather looks after just a couple thousand miles. It starts to break in nicely to make it even more comfortable than new; however it does show the graining heavier than new. It is extremely clear that this car has been well-taken care of throughout its life. Don't miss out on the opportunity to own a piece of history; while still being able to put some miles on it without feeling like you are decreasing the value of the car. These Pace Cars are becoming more and more popular, so don't wait! Call one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members at 313-982-3100 or email us at Detroit@GatewayClassicCars.com.
