For Sale: 2001 Chevrolet Corvette in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

2001 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

The Corvette crossed flag logo originally started out by using an American Flag, crossed with a checkered flag. Federal law prohibits the use of the flag in any advertising, so they had to come up with another flag. Chevrolet being of French origin, they decided to use the French symbol for peace, the Fleur-de-lis, with the checkered flag. Over the years it has gone through many iterations, but the basic principles still exist.

For consignment, a C5 Corvette with an LS 1 engine in excellent condition with low miles, (15K), just inspected and needing nothing. A sought-after exterior color of Speedway White with a black canvas convertible top. A beautiful example.

Exterior
Bathed in Speedway White all panels are straight and true, and the gaps are good, as expected for fiberglass. A black convertible top floats up and down with ease. We note a much more rounded design, almost bulbous for this generation, with indented side panels with an air intake in the front quarters. Knockout red stripes reminiscent of the grans sport cars of yore are on the front quarters. Standard polished aluminum wheels are all around, and 4 sweet sounding chromed exhaust pipes exit center stage in the rear. A little bling added on are the red brake calipers.

Interior
Utilizing stunning red leather, curvaceous buckets are form fitted to the driver and passenger and sit in front of a black dash which is showing the same undulating curvature, all the while housing key analog but white backlit instrumentation. A digital odometer reads 15,372 miles and is assumed to be original, putting this car in low mileage clocked territory. Other features seen are an AM/FM/CD player with a 12-disc changer in the back trunk area, power windows, power locks, climate control, an active handling mode button, and a heads-up display. Deep red thick pile carpeting which floods the floors and the rear storage area, accessible with the large curved glass pane lifting. Door panels are not unlike the remainder of the interior with black molded uppers and red vinyl lowers. A very nice interior presentation...take a bow!

Drivetrain
An electronic fuel injected 5.7 Liter LS1 V8 is attached to a 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission. Fuel is delivered by electronic injection. Way back is a 2.73 rear axle. All very clean and very much like new under this hood.

Undercarriage
I could use the word showroom here and for an undercarriage even with low miles one sees some signs of usage, however this undercarriage is pristine. Independent suspension and power disc brakes are seen all around. Plenty of ground effects aero panels make up the smooth over undercarriage, peppered with cast aluminum suspension parts.

Drive-Ability
A good runner, great handling and top down experience was just perfect. All is working on the functionality front.

A low, low mileage well cared for and maintained C5 that runs like a clock is in overall very nice condition and performs as expected. With 350hp for 2001, the Corvette was making a comeback from the emissions regulation years, and this one is a Speedway White shining example.
