Vehicle Description

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.
