For Sale: 2003 Chevrolet Corvette in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

2003 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 2003 Chevrolet Corvette coupe that has a nifty paint color, (Torch Red), 43,718 low low one owner 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 second to 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

Exterior
Torch Red drapes the exterior of this car and presents in like showroom condition. Very snazzy, very clean and super blinding in the summer sunlight. With a virtual lack of any chrome save for the 4 highly polished wheels, and the cross flag on the nose, the Torch Red 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 high performance rubber. Seen is a body matching removable targa top for some open-air motoring as well as a smoked transparent roof, so one can enjoy the exhaust notes along with the warming fall sunshine.

Interior
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/CD player, dual zone electronic heat and A/C, cruise control, power locks and power windows as well as magnetic ride control and memory seats. 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 43,718 original miles on this Corvette.

Drivetrain
The standard 5.7L LS1 fuel injected 345hp V8 is nestled under the forward tipping hood. We note A/C, power steering and power brakes in this ultra clean engine bay. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission sends power to a 2.73 limited slip geared rear axle and then to the tires.

Undercarriage
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.

Drive-Ability
She fired right up and off to the test track we went. Here the car provided great handling, good cruising and we were lucky enough to have a bit of a 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, albeit with the AC on full blast. A few issues crept up during our drive, but not enough to deter a 2nd lap around the track. Those being alerts to service the active handling, the ABS, and the TPMS systems.

Overall, a very nice example of a 19 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 345hp to get you motoring down the road. Snazzy upgraded polished wheels really set this car off and a recent shock, driver's power window motor and driver's headlight motor replacement. What more can the suburban cruiser ask for?
