2005 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 horses 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 big styling
change for this rounded aero body which is a far cry from the early
days of the Corvette's humble beginnings.
Fast backward to 2005 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 consigner stated
21,351 miles. And it has spent some time in the AACA museum on
Very nice Magnetic Red Metallic covers the exterior of this open
headlight fiberglass car. A removable fiberglass top along with a
hatchback of clear glass opens up for extra storage space for this
rocket ship. That rear glass somewhat harkens back to the 63 era
'Vettes with its curvature and V shape. 5 spoke polished wheels are
noted all around, and some bling from the round taillights rear in
the form of dual dual exhausts peeking out from the center rear.
Paint and fiberglass are simply lip-smacking conditions.
With a nicely contrasting color to the Magnetic Red 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, satin faux aluminum 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 Cashmere interior even more spicy! One more note about the
beige carpeting covering the floor...beautiful!
A 6.2 Liter V8 with electronic fuel injection can be seen
emblazoned with LS2 logos and is attached to a 4L65E 4-speed
automatic transmission. The rear axle weighs in at a 2.73
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 LS2 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. All functions were working
With its beautiful Cashmere leather interior mating with the
Magnetic Red Metallic exterior, it does not get any better than
this with the color combination. I'm finding myself wildly
attracted, and maybe it's the "magnetic" red? 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.
Go ahead, make your day!
