A low mileage 2004 Chevrolet Corvette convertible with a six-speed for the price of a base family sedan?! Yes, you can easily justify this purchase because the value price of this future classic is sure to hold better than a Camry over the years. But really this drop top's attractiveness is because Corvettes are always a blast to drive.
There's something irresistible about a red Corvette. It's embedded in the tradition of America's sportscar, just as the distinctive low, long hood of the C5 that gives it a classic appearance connecting it with previous generations. It's this long-standing patriotic feeling of America's sports car that makes this one of the few times you can get such a bright cherry hue without appearing boisterous. This factory-applied Torch Red has such a deep luster, we'll bet it looked this way the day it left Bowling Green. Between the paint and averaging less than 5,300 miles a year these are a clear indication that this was used more for pleasure driving than commuting. But more that just luster of the red, a proper American classic deserves some bright chrome. So this one has the optional deluxe high polish five-spoke wheels.
The all black interior is one of the most desirable combinations with red convertibles because it's so classically attractive. The leather bucket seats provide the perfect balance of sports car bolstering and all day comfort padding. This is especially true since both are power adjustable, so you and your passenger can find the perfect luxury position. Corvettes come loaded straight from the factory, and this one has plenty of great modern features. It includes dual zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual airbags, AM/FM/CD stereo (w/ additional CD changer), power windows, power locks, anti-theft system, and keyless entry. There's even the convenient windshield heads up display (HUD). Most family-sized convertibles don't even offer a real trunk, but this personal sportscar has more than enough storage space for a two-person roadtrip. You can go on a golf holiday with the clubs and the luggage neatly stowed out of the way even when the top is down. Now that's a recipe for a great driving weekend!
Under the hood is the original LS1 V8. The 5.7-liter motor was a huge leap forward in Corvette technology as it's effortlessly powerful, suitably quiet, and surprisingly economical. It is one of those powerplants that releases a fierce growl when intimidated, but the animal remains tame and caged when it's not time to be aggressive. Best of all, you get to have complete control over the V8 with the six-speed manual transmission. This convertible also comes with power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, cruise control, Sumitomo HTR ZIII tires, and a fully independent double-wishbone suspension that includes the optional Performance Handling Package. So this convertible has a great all-around package for everything from tearing up the asphalt to cross-country cruising.
You know how particular Corvette fans are, so you'll be happy to have plenty of documentation like the reproduction build sheet, reproduction window sticker, maintenance records, and even a dyno sheet. It's the kind of assurance that you can enjoy your great cruising convertible now, and if you do decide to sell this future classic down the road, you already have the right paperwork to help maximize your value. A C5 with the right colors and the right features will only be affordable for so long. Time to grab the good life at a value price now. Call today!!
