A 2000 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is always going to have extra
appeal when it's done in red. But this one is irresistible when you
really start to see the exceptional care that comes from a
long-term owner car with low mileage. So while it's easy to love a
loaded V8 drop-top, you can also tell this one is preserved at a
level for true connoisseurs.
Red is a true iconic color for Corvette, and so a factory Torch Red
car always has appeal. Plus, the way the panels still fit on this
aerodynamically smooth body means the bold color also retains a
sleek shine. This shows all the right signs of being the factory
application, and the well-respected style is what you get on a car
that has averaged less than 2,700 miles annually. There are subtle
upgrades that look great, like the upgraded brakes seen through the
high-polish alloys, and there's also extra polish on the Corsa
exhaust tips. And the streak of black in the hood highlights the
power dome, and at the same time, goes great with the well-fitting
black roof. So this one makes for a distinct way to celebrate the
new class of classic cars. After all, it's nearing the
quarter-century mark, and so it will be eligible for vintage car
registration soon in many areas. And such a sleek machine will look
awesome with antique plates.
Low mileage means little seat time, and so the black leather
interior looks exceptionally presented. More than just preserved,
you'll love this one because it's loaded with the best features.
This includes power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless
entry/alarm, dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a premium AM/FM/CD
stereo by Bose. Plus, dual-zone automatic A/C climate control means
you and your passenger can individually choose the ideal
temperature for top-down motoring. And you'll love the touches that
really make sure this lives up to the Corvette's image of a true
driver's car. It's in everything from the power telescoping option
on the steering wheel to the head-up display.
Part of what makes an early C5 so desirable is what's under the
hood. The 5.7-liter LS1 V8 was the car that was built from day one
to provide a big leap in power while also being as easy to drive as
any modern fuel-injected machine. Plus, this one is nicely upgraded
with a Blackwing cold air intake and Corsa cat-back exhaust system.
It makes a car like this drop-top a true grand touring machine.
After all, the four-wheel disc brakes and fully independent
suspension are perfect for the backroads. And there's also the
four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and
cruise control for when it's time for those weekend getaways down
the interstate. The large trunk even means the golf clubs come with
you on vacation!
Complete with owner's manual, this convertible is exceptionally
clean, right down to the undercarriage. It's the kind of preserved
Corvette that has been kept the way you would have had done from
day one. So if you're a collector, you know you need to call
