1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible $21,995

Lutz, FL Black · 383 V8 · 87,490 miles
A 1999 Chevrolet Corvette convertible presented in a pristine triple-black and a six-speed manual. Thats usually enough to motivate most of us, but the upgrade to 450 horsepower by the performance masters at Lingenfelter (a $19K package) is the reason why you need to act fast on this speedy Vette.

This convertible gives a seriously mean first impression. The black has the kind of rolling shine across the bodywork that it looks like this C5 wants to slip through the night. When it looks this factory-fresh, its a clear indication that the drop top only left the garage on sunny days and clear nights. Of course, when it comes to shine, a proper American classic deserves some chrome. So this one has the optional deluxe high polish five-spoke wheels. But the best feature of the fifth generation (C5) car is the distinctive low, long hood of the Corvette that gives it a classic appearance connecting it with previous generations.

The all-black interior completes a terrific total package, because combined with the exterior and folding roof, this makes the ultra-desirable triple-black package. Just like the outside appearance, the inside has also been treated with amazing care that an exotic like this one deserves. This one had just about every option box checked, which means it has plenty of great modern features. It includes dual zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual airbags, Bose AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, power locks, anti-theft system, and keyless entry. Theres even the windshield heads up display (HUD). The leather bucket seats show nearly zero wear, and the driver even can power adjust it to the perfect driving position. Most family-sized convertibles dont 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 thats a recipe for a great driving weekend!

The Corvettes LS1 V8 displaced 5.7-liters and made a nice 345 horsepower, which is more than enough to make some trouble. But that doesnt meant the fellas at Lingenfelter were satisfied. Thats why they offer a complete rebuild of this motor in a fortified and blueprinted performance package that costs nearly $19,000. It starts with increasing the displacement to 6.3-liters. The rebuild includes CNC port & polished cylinder heads, forged aluminum pistons, three-angle valve job with new LPE springs & retainers, Lunati crankshaft & connecting rods, B&B stainless headers, and B&B tri-flow exhaust. Theres plenty more to this build, but just know the strengthened V8 now makes 450 horsepower. Backed by the desirable six-speed manual transmission, you are in complete control of this upgraded motor and the seriously sweet symphony made by the exhaust. Plus, the optional performance suspension package, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and modern performance tires combine to make a lively dance partner on your favorite twisting road.

Complete with the original window sticker, owners manual, and the receipt/build details from Lingenfelter, this is a true beautiful C5 with a great pedigree. Rarely does a Corvette this special come up for sale. Call today!!!
