Bright red boldness, drop-top appeal, and proper control over the
V8 with a six-speed stick... this 1999 Chevrolet Corvette
Convertible is an awesome fuel-injected driver's machine that knows
how to put the wind in your hair and a smile on your face. And it
does it all for a value price.
When it comes to Corvettes, there's always a magnetic level of
attraction when dressed in Torch red. This shows all the signs of
being the original factory application, and it continues to have
the kind of radiance you want in a sunshine-friendly drop-top. The
full package shows this has been a well-cared for machine. You see
it in the fit of the body panels, the pliable rubber seals, and the
way the alloy wheels still have a mirror-like shine.
The tan convertible top has a stylish look against the red, but the
real distinction is when you take it down. You get the same tan
inside, but this one has been upgraded for better coordination. For
example, the seats have covers protecting the supple leather
underneath. And these look quite nice as they hug the form and
really unite the exterior red and interior black accents. And other
details like the red shift boot and patriotic Corvette logo in the
steering wheel all make this feel like the kind of car that got
extra thought and care. Of course, you'll also love this Corvette
because it's a loaded machine. It has power windows, power locks,
keyless entry/alarm, rear defogger, tilt steering, cruise control,
power steering, dual airbags, and a premium AM/FM/cassette stereo
with CD changer and Bose speakers. And it's easy for you and your
passenger to dial-in an individual level of comfort with dual-zone
automatic A/C climate control.
Under the hood is the correct 5.7-liter LS1 V8. While there is a
ton of added shine that makes this one look great, real enthusiasts
will love that there is Will Cooksey's signature on the inside of
the hood. He was the long-time plant manager at the Bowling Green
factory, including when this one was built. So you know a true
Corvette fan was in charge of this drop-top. These were rated at
345 hp from the factory, and this one increases that a little more.
It inhales deeper with a cold air induction, and it exhales out of
an upgraded exhaust. You're in complete control over this
performance motor and its rumbling soundtrack thanks to the
six-speed manual transmission. Plus, this Corvette has the benefit
of a fully independent sports suspension, optional active handling,
four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS, and modern grippy tires.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker and
owner's manual. This convertible comes with a ton of the best
extras, and in fact, the only addition you don't get is extra cost.
So it's time to hurry up on this enthusiast's C5. Call today!!!
