This 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is not just attractive
because it's an affordable drop-top with its numbers-matching
fuel-injected V8 and the control of a six-speed. The reason why you
stopped to look at this one is because of that eye-catching color,
and guess what, that also guarantees serious rarity, too.
This is an actual miles car that has averaged only about 3,300
miles annually, and so the clean and sleek lines of the C5 are
presented quite well. There's also a good shine on the paint, and
that's important on this car. Fairway Green Metallic was only
offered for the first two years of the C5's production. It's
believed the factory sprayed less than 223 examples in 1998. To
really put that into perspective, this was the same year that the
Corvette had the distinctive purple and yellow Indy 500 Pace Car
package. Those are coveted for their rarity and distinction, and
Chevy made over five times more of those than Fairway Green
Metallic cars in 1998. So when you want a car that is going to get
attention, even in the fickle Corvette crowds, you know this one
will do it right.
The black roof looks distinctive against the glowing green paint,
but this one looks better when you take it down. After all, a rich
tan interior against the green is a timeless color combo. And this
is loaded with the best features, like power locks, keyless
entry/alarm, power mirrors, cruise control, dual airbags, and
AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers by Bose. And cold-blowing air
conditioning is always great in a convertible. Of course, what
you'll really love is how this is built to be a true driver's
machine. Your bucket seat power adjusts to the ideal driving
position. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is on a tilt column to
give you a clear view to the full gauge package. And the stick
shift feels terrific in your right hand.
The 5.7-liter LS1 fuel-injected V8 is a big part of the C5 legend.
It's a terrific powerhouse that gives America's sports car an
impressive 345 horsepower, and this is the numbers-matching unit.
It only gets better on an example with a six-speed manual
transmission. After all, the greater majority of the C5s this year
were automatics, and so this adds to the already rare numbers on
this one. Plus, there's no better way to fully harness the motor's
big power. Add in a fully independent sport suspension, power
steering, and new ceramic brake pads for the four-wheel disc
brakes, and this is the rare Corvette that you'll also love to
Complete with owner's manual, this one mixes rarity, distinction,
and true sports car fun. So you know you don't want to let this
affordable drop-top slip away. Call today!!!
