Classic Car Overview
2004 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible $22,995
The color is called Arctic White, and you already know its a traditional favorite among Corvette fans. It doesnt rely on being flashy; instead, its a great combination of the clean lines and no-nonsense color that make this car stand out, although well admit that the red stripes dont hurt a bit (dont worry, theyre vinyl so theyre easy to remove if you dont like them). The C5s timeless shape is pure Corvette and while it broke new ground mechanically, it stuck to the styling that dates all the way back to 1968 with its long nose, hidden headlights, and smooth profile. With just 58,843 original miles, this Vette has obviously been a toy car, not a daily driver, and given the way Corvette guys care about their hardware, its almost a certainty that its been washed and waxed regularly. Equipped with the optional stinger side moldings and black emblems that really pop against the white paint, its still one heck of a good-looking car. Add in just the right stance, the vividly contrasting red stripes, and the polished alloy wheels, and you have a car that manages to be both elegant and sporting at the same time.
The C5s interior is where the biggest strides were made. Maybe we take it for granted today, now that were in the 7th generation of Corvettes, but stepping out of a C4 and into a C5 was a genuine experience. No more clamoring over high side sills, no more miniscule luggage compartment, and the ergonomics were dead-on. Incredibly, an automatic transmission was STANDARD on the Corvette for the first time, and it is by no means a demerit when you dip into the endless reserves of torque served up by the LS1 V8. Youll enjoy watching the gauges do their dance every time you key it up, and whether youre hitting the autocross course or cruising across the country, this Corvette excels. The tan leather remains in excellent shape, the carpets havent been faded by the sun, and, well, if youre looking for a well-preserved C5, you can scarcely do better than this. The stereo has been upgraded to a Kenwood AM/FM/CD unit with a CD changer in the trunk and satellite radio capabilities, and it sounds great. And like all Corvettes before it, the snug-fitting tan convertible top stows with little drama under a hard-shell tonneau cover.
The LS1 was the second part of the C5 revolution. The all-aluminum V8 was lighter than the old LT1 and made considerably more power, all with a wonderful European exhaust note. Unlike so many of this cars siblings, it remains completely stock, right down to the air filter, which is somewhat of a rarity in the Corvette world and it is exactly how you want your C5; no questionable modifications that would suggest its been raced. Its clean, well-detailed, and starts and runs beautifully, just as youd expect. Underneath its quite clean, with no signs of foul play or winter weather, and youll find the only notable upgrades here: a small dress-up plate behind the exhaust pipes and a set of red painted calipers. Fresh 245/45/17 front and 275/40/18 rear Michelin radials on those gorgeous polished forged aluminum wheels prove that nobody was skimping on maintenance with this Vette.
If you want a no-stories C5 in a fabulous color combination and loaded with options, this one is a great choice. At this price, however, its nigh irresistible. Call today!
