2006 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
A major styling change for the C6 Corvette is non-pop up
headlights... not seen on a Corvette since 1962. The base engine
for the 2005 Corvette was the 400hp LS2, only 5 HP less than the
LS6 engine of the previous year's high performance Z06 model. 2005
was the first year for keyless access and start. A six-speed paddle
shift automatic transmission was introduced as an option in 2006. A
big styling change for this rounded aero body which is a far cry
from the early days of the Corvette's humble beginnings.
Fast forward back to 2006 and this C6 version puts out 400hp and
has the first exposed headlights since 1962. This coupe from
Bowling Green presents in very good condition with a mere 37,115
miles. This car is a Z51 Performance package with a 6-speed and a
smoked glass large top.
Very nice Monterey Red, (maroon), covers the exterior of this open
headlight fiberglass car. A smoked glass top and a hatchback of
clear glass opens up for extra storage space for this rocket ship.
5-spoke polished wheels are noted all around, and some bling from
the rear in the form of dual exhausts peeking out from the center
rear. Paint and fiberglass are simply lip-smacking conditions.
With a nicely contrasting color to the maroon exterior, we are met
with beige Cashmere leather buckets, and matching tan leather door
panels with just a touch of black accenting. Tastefully mixed with
dark vinyl the dash shows a hint of the beige at the bottom, and
mixes in tan, gray and black for the center console. Seat heaters,
climate control, a single disc CD player with the standard AM/FM
radio, anti-skid button mode, power windows, power locks and power
seats with 2 position memory, make this red interior even more
spicy! One more note about the beige carpeting covering the
A 6.2 Liter V8 with electronic fuel injection can be seen
emblazoned with LS2 logos and is attached to a T56 6-speed manual
transmission. The rear axle weighs in at 3.42.
With the use of many lightweight materials, we see no corrosion, no
surface rust, and all structurally sound framing and floor pans.
4-wheel power disc brakes are seen, and this C6's suspension
consisted of independent unequal-length double wishbones with
transverse fiberglass mono-leaf springs. Power disc braking is on
all 4 corners.
She fired right up and a light touch of the accelerator and I can
feel the Z51 package kicking in. The car handles like it's on
rails, and with all the creature comforts of conveniences added in,
I think I'll stay for a while. I kept getting a left front tire
flat warning, although the tire was at 30psi?
With its beautiful Cashmere leather interior mating with the
Monterey Red exterior, it does not get any better than this with
the color combination. A clean overall engine bay, and well
performing engine and transmission, this open headlamp version of
the C6 is a turnkey sports car awaiting action.
