Drop-top open-road fun awaits with this 2001 Chevrolet Corvette
Convertible. After all, this is a well-priced and loaded red 'Vette
that loves to use its fuel-injected V8 to put plenty of wind
through your hair.
This one likes to impress with its shine. The factory-correct Torch
Red has a deep gloss that always looks great on these C5 Corvettes.
After all, they let the sunshine show off the long flowing body as
well as details like front fender vents and the gentle rise of the
power bulge in the hood. There's even more shine showcasing sporty
pieces, like the polished quad exhaust tips and the optional chrome
five-spoke alloys with the extra meaty rear rubber. It all makes
for that ideal sleek and powerful appearance you always knew your
dream Corvette would have.
The black folding top looks great against the red paint, and when
you take it down, the same color theme continues. In fact, the C5
is a terrific convertible because they developed this car to be a
drop-top from day one. Plus, that stylish hard convertible tonneau
has a waterfall of color in the middle that pays tribute to the
first generation, and it gives this a striking look that flows from
the exterior to the interior. Not only is this stylish, but it's
also loaded. The high back bucket seats are finished in leather and
power adjust to your ideal position. There's also power windows,
power locks, rear defogger, cruise control, dual airbags, and an
upgraded AM/FM/CD/XM stereo w/aux input and Bluetooth. Plus, dual
zone automatic A/C climate control means you and you passenger get
to dial in an individual level of comfort. The tilt steering column
gives you a clear view of the new full gauge package. The gauge
package was replaced when the car had approx 95k miles, we estimate
this corvette has around 100k miles.
The 5.7-liter LS1 V8 is a now a legendary powerhouse, and so it's
great to have this one looking so stock and tidy. This
fuel-injected V8 was rated at 345 horsepower right from the
factory, and so this has been a contender from day one. And the way
this fires up and runs today reaffirms a life of proper
maintenance. The four-speed automatic transmission with
highway-friendly overdrive offers a great balance of power and
comfort. Add in power steering, a fully independent sports
suspension, and modern grippy tires, and this is Corvette is a
terrific cruiser. You even have four-wheel power disc brakes with
drilled & slotted rotors and ABS for superior stopping power.
Complete with owner's manual this is a sleek and speedy Vette
offered for a gone-tomorrow price. So you know you need to call
