Vehicle Description

It doesn’t get any better than riding top-down in a Corvette.  This gorgeous 1998 triple-black convertible is a beautiful example of a fifth generation (C5) car.  With only 37k miles this 3-owner car is in beautiful condition throughout and has a flawless Autocheck report.

 

The original black paint is smooth and shiny, while the top is also original and in excellent condition.  It’s hard to believe this is a 22-year-old car!  This Corvette is also equipped with factory fog lamps and body side moldings.  The polished aluminum C6 wheels wear the factory C5 tire size (245/45ZR17 front, 275/40ZR18 rear).  All four TPMS sensors are new as well.

 

This Corvette is equipped with the revolutionary 345HP LS1 motor along with a 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission.  This one also has the FE1 soft ride suspension and 2.73 rear gears.  This all contributes to a Corvette that not only has outstanding performance but also offers a comfortable, practical ride.  The brakes are smooth and even, and the switchable traction control can keep you out of trouble. 

 

The black leather interior is surprisingly spacious.  The dual power seats seem to fit just right; not too firm, not too soft.  The optional dual zone climate control works as it should, as does the 6-speaker AM/FM/CD sound system with power antenna.  Additional features include the driver memory package, heated remote mirrors, and sport leather steering wheel.  The C5 trunk is also quite roomy and includes three storage compartments.

 

An interesting fact is that the C5 (1997-2004) was the first Corvette to be designed as a convertible from the start; it was not like previous models that simply chopped the top off a coupe and then added reinforcing. Note the top is manual, as a power top was never available on the C5.  It is very easy for a single person to operate.

 

I always think these cars look fantastic in black and this one is no exception.  It is in wonderful condition throughout and has not been modified or hot rodded, retaining its factory setup (and reliability).  The C5 Corvette really delivers a lot of bang for the buck, and does it best without a top.  One drive and I think you’ll be convinced.
