1998 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Convertible Car for sale by Atomic Motors in Henderson, Nevada 89011
This super C5 is ripe for the picking. In 2006 when the C6 come on the scene, many C5 Z06 owners quickly traded their car in for the C6, flooding the market with used examples and driving down their prices.
The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
Classic Car Overview
A year after its introduction, the convertible C5 was chosen as the official pace car of the 1998 Indianapolis 500. With much excitement, General Motors quickly created an official Pace Car Edition. All examples were painted the same Radar Blue metallic. Inside, banana yellow leather complimented other surfaces in more traditional black. The wheels were unique to this Edition and painted the same color as the seats. Speaking of seats, the leather sport buckets were standard. It also had the Active Handling System as standard, as well as a Bose stereo, and climate control. The package was topped off with checkered flag graphics, as well as Indianapolis 500 badging in several places. As one might expect, the Indy Edition was always intended as a limited offering.
Only 1,163 were built in total, with just under half of them blessed with the six-speed manual transmission.
The Corvette Pace Car Edition convertibles were exactly the same as the real thing with the exception of the specially-fitted strobe lights on the actual pace car. And since the 345-hp Corvette needs no powertrain modifications to handle the pacing chores, the replicas were mechanically identical to the original.
