For Sale: 1998 Chevrolet Corvette in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Our Nashville showroom digitally showcases this 1998 Corvette Indy 500 Pace car. Now when it comes to Pace cars there are several varieties. You have the ones that where produced in limited number and sold at your local dealer at a markup. They would normally include graphic that looked a lot like the car that led the field during the Indy 500 race. The second variety were every limited usually less than 200 of them produced and they were called parade cars. Celebrities, sports heroes and the press were given these to drive in a parade around the big old Indianapolis Speedway. Then of course there were a select few that actually lead the field during the start and restarts of the race. This 1998 Indianapolis Pace car for sale falls into the second class. This is an actual, documented parade car # 125 in fact. This 98 Indy pace car is listed in the C5 registry and is documented well. These highly prized car are very few and do not come up for sale often and this one has all the official badges to prove it's linage. The real pace car that year was driven by Rufus Parnell Jones, or to those of my age just Parnell Jones or Big Oly, put this man behind the wheel of any thing with an engine and he would dive it just past it's limits, but I digress. Clearly written in silver sharpie(R) on the passenger air bag is the man's signature, now that alone should be worth a couple of dollars. Under the hood you will find the LS 1 5.7 Liter Chevrolet V 8. These engines have become the basic go to engines for most projects. Known for smooth easy horsepower and longevity. Back by the T 56 6 speed manual transmission this car is more than just a pretty face and has the muscle to back it up. If you have had your eye on one of these, don't hesitate as they do not come up for sale very often and I do not anticipate this one lasting very long. Options for this 1998 Corvette for sale include: Air conditioning, AM/FM cd player, Power steering, brakes, windows, mirrors and locks, Leather interior and Posi traction.
