For Sale: 2003 Chevrolet Corvette in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

40,668 original miles. Automatic transmission. Beautifully preserved and owned by a Corvette enthusiast. No modifications. Nicely documented, well maintained, everything works, drives superbly. A 50th Anniversary C5 ready to go!This is arguably the most attractive of all C5s. In Anniversary model terms, the coupe is considerably rarer than the convertible (4085 built vs. 11,632), and while they did have a long list of features, this particular coupe is equipped with a long list of options, including Magnetic Ride Control, heads-up display, and the 'Stinger' body side moldings. With just over 40,000 original miles, it has obviously led a very easy life and it remains completely stock, right down to the Goodyear F1 run-flat tires, which were just replaced. The 50th Anniversary cars' most distinctive feature, the lovely 'Anniversary Red' paint, makes this car simply gorgeous in the sunlight. It's elegant and sophisticated, but flashy enough to belong on a Corvette, and you will probably get tired of people asking you, 'Hey, what color is that?' whenever you're stopped at a light or getting gas. It talks directly to people on a level that makes them want to reach out and touch it. Subtle 50th Anniversary badges replace the usual nose and tail emblems, with another set on the front fenders, just in case nobody noticed this was a special car. The car is just lovely.Anniversary models also got a gorgeous two-tone interior in a color called 'Shale.' It's not quite gray, not quite beige, and it works exceptionally well with the ruby red paint. If you've not driven a C5, you'll probably be surprised by how comfortable it is, how easy it is to climb aboard, and how much space you have for your gear. The optional sport seats were standard in Anniversary cars, giving you the most comfortable chairs available, all wrapped in that lovely sandstone-colored leather. Of course, it goes without saying that everything inside this car is in exemplary condition, with virtually zero wear on the seating surfaces. Special embroidery on the headrests further identifies this as an Anniversary model, as do icons on the gauges, which do a wonderful sweep every time you turn the key. The C5 also offers a remarkably spacious trunk, which, in this car, is fitted with both a cargo net and a privacy shade, and there are convenient storage hooks for the removable top. The C5's robust 5.7 liter all-aluminum LS1 really needs no introduction. With 350 horsepower, it was plenty quick, but it's also docile, tractable, and perfectly happy to sit in rush hour traffic with the A/C blasting. And with a booming aftermarket of go-fast parts, it's actually somewhat rare to see one like this, which remains in 100% factory-fresh condition, from the air filter to the exhaust tips. That means it should run beautifully virtually forever, service is quick and easy, and parts are available everywhere. But don't let that user-friendly demeanor fool you, because this is a seriously quick car, even by today's standards. Don't make the mistake of assuming that since this car is comfortable, quiet, smooth, and pulls down 25 MPG that it's also a slug, because this is truly a car that does everything well.The 4-speed automatic transmission is a great driving partner, serving up snappy shifts when you're running hard and effortless shifts when you're just cruising. And this car does cruise well, just loafing along at 75 MPH and pulling down remarkable fuel economy at the same time. The F55 Magnetic Ride suspension system offers driver-adjustable settings that you really can feel, and it reacts so quickly that you may not even notice some of the bumps. It really is that good. Massive disc brakes at all four corners are, of course, part of the package, and the exhaust that ends in neat polished tips that were sorely lacking on earlier C5 models. Finally, the Anniversary cars got a gorgeous 'Warm Nickel Metallic' finish on the forged aluminum wheels, a look reminiscent of the ultra-rare magnesium wheels from early in C5 production and the perfect accent to the beautiful burgundy paint. And as I mentioned, those are brand new original-spec 245/45/17 front and 285/35/18 rear Goodyear F1 run-flat tires.Unlike so many previous Corvettes, the 50th Anniversary cars are more than just a few badges. This is arguably the best of the C5, a gorgeous car with cutting-edge tech that coddles as well as it excites. If you've been looking for an affordably-priced Corvette with a great pedigree and no stories, why not buy the one with the most options in the best color?
