For Sale: 2003 Chevrolet Corvette in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

Adding power and saving weight, this 2003 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 was the quickest 'Vette to date. So when you can find one with such good care, proper documentation, and low mileage, this is the right balance of 400+ hp speed machine and awesome collectible.

The Torch Red paint instantly makes this one noticeable, but as you dig deeper, you can see it has all the right components for the best collectability. After all, 2003 was the Corvette's 50th anniversary, and this example has the low mileage (averaging under 1,500 miles annually) that lets you know it has been treated with respect from day one. So not only does the factory paint shine brightly, but also the panels retain the nice fir to show off the unique curves. Don't forget that the Z06 was paired with the FRC (Fixed Roof Coupe) body style, which was specifically developed to be the lightest and strongest version of the C5. They gave it special vents to cool the brakes, an upgraded suspension, and better wheels as part of the package, too. But one piece that's exclusive to the 2003 Corvettes is the 50th-anniversary badge up front.

The low mileage means the black leather interior looks quite clean and inviting. The Z06 loves to announce it's special with the bold red stitching in the headrests, but the real appeal is the way it speaks to the driver. A leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, power memory seat, hardy shifter, and full gauges immediately get your enthusiast's heart pumping. And the head-up display is a competition-style feature that seems perfect for a track-ready Z06. But this car looks like it has never turned a wheel in anger, and that's because this Z06 also has the best luxury features. You get dual-zone climate A/C control, power steering, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power mirrors, cruise control, dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a Bose AM/FM/CD stereo system. And the proper trunk is great for taking the week off and going on a road trip. After all, the odometer is low, but this is not a car that gets tucked away every day.

The engine bay is ultra-clean and ultra-stock, and that's for a good reason. The 2003 Z06 is part of the later year that had even more power than when initially launched. So if you're going to be talking about this 405 horsepower 5.7-liter LS6 motor, then it should be ready to also be showcased. A factory setup like this is fun to display, but it's even more fun to drive. You have complete control over all the sound and fury the V8 brings thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. As a true competition machine, the upgraded suspension package allows this fully independent setup to perform at its best during high speeds. And keeping everything in control is also the large four-wheel disc brake package and a fine set of Goodyear Eagle F1 sport tires.

The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, factory buildsheet, owner's manual packet, a car cover, and a trickle charger. It's all part of a package that shows you this Z06 has been treated like a collector's car, and thus, makes it ideal if you want the best in both performance and pedigree. Call now!
