2003 Chevrolet Corvette 50th Anniversary
Zora Arkus-Duntov (December 25, 1909 - April 21, 1996) was a
Belgian-born American engineer whose work on the Chevrolet Corvette
earned him the nickname "Father of the Corvette." He is sometimes
erroneously referred to as the inventor of the Corvette, whereas
that title belongs to Harley Earl. He was also a successful racing
driver, taking class victories in 1954 and 1955 at the 24 Heures du
For consignment, a 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. Corvette
was celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2003 and did have an
early release of a special paint scheme which is on this car and
called 50th Anniversary Red which also included a special Shale
leather interior and special gold tinted wheels. Bought new from a
well-known dealership and kept with low low miles our consignor is
now ready for someone else to take the reins. And as they say, "the
rest is history".
50th Anniversary Red drapes the exterior of this car. Exterior add
ons include heated outside mirrors, halogen headlamps, a smoked see
thru removable targa roof, and chrome exhaust tips, which are
gathered together in the center of the rear roll pan. All black
trimmings, the Corvette cove on the front quarter harkens back 50
years. Gold tinted anniversary wheels are on all for corners. We do
note that the lower part of the front bumper cover is broken due to
an unfortunate incident with a traffic cone that didn't make it
under the car.
50th Anniversary Shale, (off white), leather, power adjustable,
high back buckets embroidered with "Corvette" name and 50th
anniversary crossed flags await you. Sliding in will put you into a
cockpit with an AM/FM/12 CD sound system with Bose speakers, dual
zone electronic A/C, a driver's info center on the dash above the
console, cruise control, power locks, power windows and a magnetic
ride control dial on the center console. A heads-up display is seen
as are very clean shale colored carpeting throughout.
The standard 5.7 Liter LS1 Fuel Injected V8 nestled under the
forward tipping hood, in a clean engine bay, is attached to a T56 6
speed manual transmission. The rear axle weighs in at 3.42
Very clean, nothing but black painted steel, cast aluminum
suspension and stainless steel. Very sound with no rust or surface
rust. Active handling, traction control, and 4-wheel disc brakes
with drilled and slotted rotors and ABS are noted along with a
Corsa cat back exhaust system. SLA independent suspension with a
transverse composite leaf spring provides the magnet like ride for
both front and rear.
This Corvette in 50th anniversary red is a stunner. Plenty of power
after a quick start and warmup, and the test track was no match for
this vehicle. It ran great and all was working except as to be
expected from a 4,100 mile car.
An Anniversary special edition of which only 500 examples were
produced, so a bit rare, and all in very nice condition.
