Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 2002 Corvette in spectacular condition with only 21,095 miles. This C5 Corvette is completely "turn key," everything on the car works, and it needs nothing. I would not hesitate to hop in this car right now and drive across the country. The Torch Red (70) over Light Oak Leather (67) color combination is highly desirable, truly striking, and looks great on this C5 body style. It is also the correct and original color scheme as verified by the codes on the service sticker, which is pictured in this ad. Besides the beautiful color, this Corvette is absolutely loaded with sought-after options such as Heads Up Display (HUD), polished wheels, sport seats, CD player, memory package, dual zone automatic digital climate control, automatic transmission, and much much more.

I have put about 800 miles on this car in the past month. The car was an absolute pleasure to drive, had no issues at all, and was flawlessly reliable. I have personally known this Corvette for almost its entire life. I first purchased the car in 2004. I owned it for a few months and then sold it to local woman. She owned the car for a couple of years until she sold it to my cousin. He owned the car for the majority of its life until he purchased a new Corvette this year. When he received his new Corvette we purchased the car from him. The previous owners have been car collectors that took excellent care of this Corvette.

The car comes with both original key fob remotes, two sets of keys, the original owners manual, and books. It also has the original cargo net that has never been used.

We have this Corvette priced to sell and are offering an excellent opportunity to own a very desirable C5 at an unbeatable value. One could buy this car now and sell it for more than the purchase price in years to come as the market on C5 Corvettes has really turned the corner and started to rise recently. C5 Corvettes have gone from simply being older used to cars to become a collectable classics. This is especially true for exceptionally clean, low mileage, original, unmodified, and premium examples like this Corvette.

The very low original mileage is verified not only by the condition of the car, but also the clear Ohio title, pictured in this ad, that shows the mileage as "Actual." Please peruse all of the photos, video, list of numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of how nice this Corvette really is.

As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their car to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Corvette, just give us a call.

Exterior

The Torch Red exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the photos, the finish has dazzling gloss, smooth finish, and deep shine. Both doors open and shut nicely and the car exhibits great body panel fit overall. It has never been in any kind of accident. We have seen no paint lines, overspray or other signs of paintwork at all. The original polished aluminum wheels are in great condition with a brilliant finish and no curb rash. Please note that these are the factory polished wheels, not the cheaper aftermarket chrome replacements the quickly pit and corrode. The Cooper tires are literally brand new with less than 20 miles on them and are correctly sized 245/45R17 in the front and 275/40R18 in the rear. This Corvette has always been stored indoors and as one can see in the many photos of the underside this C5 is very clean underneath.

The car look just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Interior

The Light Oak Leather interior of the Corvette is in fantastic condition. The sport seats look great with no rips or split seams. The seats are not overly worn in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. Please note that these are the original seats and skins, not some cheap aftermarket covers. The gauge faces are clean and crisp and the lenses are clear. The carpet is in also in excellent condition with no stains, rips, or holes. This includes the rear carpet, which is often neglected. The factory radio works and sounds great; most importantly the dash has never been cut or modified for an installation. The dash and console are in great shape with no cracks, fading, or sun damage. This Corvette has never been smoked in; there are no burns marks and no aroma of cigarettes.

Corvette interiors from this era are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this all original interior is a huge testament to the meticulous care and attention this Corvette has received throughout its life.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Mechanical

This Corvette is in wonderful mechanical condition. As stated above I have recently put about 800 on this car with no problems at all. The LS1 engine starts right away every time, runs great, and idles smooth. The car drives magnificently and feels nice on the road and at highway speeds, it drives just as well as you would expect from a well maintained sports car with very low mileage. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well throughout the power band. This Corvette has plenty of power and is very fast. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos. The car is completely stock, has no modification, and it totally unmolested.

Every feature and option on this car works properly including the radio, the exterior lights, dash lights, power seats in all directions, power mirrors in all directions, horn, wipers, and indicators. The blower for the heater and a/c works on all speeds. The a/c itself works and blows cold. All of the gauges work. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the targa top out on a beautiful day.

The car runs and drives as well as it looks.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 2002 Corvette looks fantastic and is in excellent driver condition. The beautiful original color combination, excellent condition, and the very low original mileage make this C5 especially important and very hard to duplicate. In my opinion and based on our experience the fifth generation C5 Corvettes from 1997-2004 are rising in value and are becoming classics. This is especially true for premium and low mileage examples like this C5. The value of these cars is going up and they are solid investments for a collector. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.

Thank you for looking and please do not hesitate to email or call with any questions.
