Vehicle Description

2006 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

In 1953, when GM executives were looking to name the new Chevrolet sports car, assistant director for the Public Relations department Myron Scott suggested Corvette after the small maneuverable warship-and the name was approved. The first model, a convertible, was introduced at the GM Motorama in 1953 as a concept and was followed ten years later by the 1963 second generation, in coupe and convertible styles. Originally manufactured in Flint, Michigan, as well as St. Louis, Missouri, the Corvette has been manufactured since 1981 in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Corvette has since become widely known as "America's Sports Car." Automotive News said that after 'starring' in the early 1960s television show Route 66, the Corvette became synonymous with freedom and adventure," ultimately becoming both "the most successful concept car in history and the most popular sports car in history".

For consignment, a two owner 2006 Corvette C6 version and with the exception of the Borla exhaust system, an all original, garage kept and covered car with low mileage (21,618). Victory Red for the exterior, and let's take the lap to celebrate our victory! Throw in a sexy Cashmere leather interior, a beige power soft top, and we are going to steer this nimble warship down a curved back road and see what she does.

Exterior
Victory Red bathes the fiberglass on this beautiful factory C6. Clean integrated plastic covered headlights are on to give the car a more menacing and aero look. A Corvette cove is there on the front quarter, right out of 1954. A beautifully sculpted hood is on and flips forward to reveal the engine bay. Noted on top is a beige canvas convertible top complete with a glass rear window, and this is power actuated. Out back are the iconic round taillights and a cluster of quad exhaust tips sounding out of the center of the rear of this car. 18 and 19-inch polished 5-spoke wheels with low profile rubber surrounding them, and let's go do some carving of curves. When the top is down a nicely dual eyebrow curved fiberglass tonneau tucks the top in and conforms to the seat backs. As an added bonus there is a rear windscreen that comes with the car.

Interior
A swing of the doors and we are bowled over by Cashmere and black molded panels which have door pulls that also house the power windows, mirrors and locks. A large Bose speaker is on the inside tucked into the door panel. Planting ourselves into the high back Cashmere leather buckets, which take you and push you firmly into the cockpit ready for the take off! We do note some wear on the driver's outer bolster caused by entrance and exit of the car. With your posterior firmly in the driver's seat you can grab on to the ergonomically designed steering wheel which is wrapped in black leather with stitching and peer into the gauge cluster which is all white LED backlit analog displays with red pointers. In the center of the dash is mounted the factory AM/FM/CD changer. Below is a temp controller with digital display as well as the heated seat controls. The lower console houses the shift lever and anti-skid push button. Also, the handbrake and a nifty console mounted glovebox. Clean tan carpet for the floors all clean and ready to rub your toes into.

Drivetrain
An original 364ci V8 can put out 400 horses. It has EFI and a 6L80E 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shift functions. All looking very clean under the sculpted hood. On the back is a 2.56 limited slip rear axle.

Undercarriage
Rust free and all covered up with ground effects panels, we can note C6 suspension on front and rear, as well as power disc brakes all around, and an added Borla stainless steel exhaust system.

Drive-Ability
Top down, spirits up, and foot to the floor (well, not right away) it was off to the test track. This car has great acceleration, handles like it's on rails, and stops on a dime. All the functions were working just fine and using the paddle shifters made me feel a bit like Nigel Mansell behind the wheel of his Ferrari 640 F1 car.

A touch of originality, low mileage and 2 owners. All looking perfectly wrapped up sans the bow. A convertible, a great sound system, and the throaty exhaust sounds good and plays a nice tune too!
