2004 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
In 1951 a group of Harley Earl's "Special Projects" crew began work
on a GM sports car. Bob McLean designed a general layout for the
car which was originally code named, "Opel". William Durant, the
founder of GM, said a wallpaper pattern he saw in a Paris hotel in
1908 inspired the bow tie logo. Supposedly, he ripped off a small
piece of it and brought it back to Detroit. Myron Scott, at the
time, Chevrolet's Chief photographer, is credited with coming up
with the Corvette name, drawing from the small, fast warships of
the "Corvette" class.
For consignment, a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette coupe that has a nifty
paint color, (Machine Silver Metallic), 30,523 low low original
miles, plus all the bells and whistles one could ask for thanks in
part to the Preferred Equipment Package that was optioned when this
car was new. The last year of the C5 Corvette and the only one of
the many Corvettes we have in our vast inventory here at the
Classic Auto Mall
Machine Silver Metallic drapes the exterior of this car and
presents in like showroom condition. Very snazzy, very metallic,
and super sparkly in the fall sunlight. With a virtual lack of any
chrome save for the 4 highly polished wheels, and the cross flag on
the nose, the Machine Silver quickly takes over as star of the
show, at least on the exterior. All gaps are well minded and it's
hard to find any flaws in the fiberglass/composite body. 17 and 18
inch wheels sit on all four corners and are wrapped in 245/45/ZR17
and 275/40ZR18 like new rubber. Seen is a transparent removable top
for some open-air motoring, so one can enjoy the exhaust notes
along with the warming fall sunshine.
Black leather, power adjustable, high back buckets embroidered with
the "Corvette" name await you. Sliding in will put you into a
cockpit with an AM/FM/12 disc CD player, dual zone electronic heat
and A/C, cruise control, power locks and power windows. A bevy of
gauges are in front of the leather wrapped steering wheel and
monitor all engine functions. A head up display is optioned on this
car and keeps your eyes looking dead ahead when you get heavy with
your right foot. The odometer shows there are 30,523 original miles
on this Corvette.
The standard 5.7L LS1 fuel injected 350hp V8 is nestled under the
forward tipping hood. We note A/C, power steering and power brakes
in this ultra clean engine bay. A T56 6-speed manual transmission
sends power to a 3.42 limited slip geared rear axle and then to the
Very clean, nothing but black painted steel and stainless steel.
Very sound with no rust or surface rust. Active handling, traction
control, and 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS are noted. Independent
SLA suspension with a transverse monoleaf spring provides the ride
for front and rear. Factory dual exhaust is present and exits with
4 chrome ringed tips under the center of the rear bumper.
She fired right up and off to the test track we went. Here the car
provided great handling, good cruising and everything control wise
works swimmingly. We were lucky enough to have a bit of a fall heat
wave going on in Pennsylvania for this test drive, so we sucked up
the opportunity and took the removable top out to really enjoy our
experience. Our consignor informed us that on cold starts during
the cool months the "Service Active Handling" alert will illuminate
until the car is warmed up, shut down and restarted. A dealership
has checked this nuance and found nothing wrong with the
Overall a very nice example of a 17 year old 'Vette, that has been
well cared for. An eye-catching paint color really makes this car
pop along with its many options and its 350hp to get you motoring
down the road. Snazzy upgraded polished wheels really set this car
off and a recent cooling system service and flush was completed.
