GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible for purchase. “The Heartbeat of America” coined by Chevrolet to tout the sports car legend of the Corvette. The introduction of the C5 Vette was a huge success and with the U.S. economy in a boom, dealers were selling these faster than the plant in Bowling Green could keep up. This led to significant dealer markups which allowed the value of these to rise drastically for the first few years of production. With 4-wheel independent suspension to go along with speed sensitive power rack & pinion steering, the handling of the C5 Vette was unmatched by any affordable sports car. The track times turned in put the Corvette in elite company when your comparables are Ferrari & Lamborghini.
This Corvette is the perfect car for your introduction to the Corvette hobby and certainly gives you the most bang for your buck. 1998 is also the first year for the convertible in the fifth generation Corvette. This highly optioned car was used on average 4,000 miles per year since new. This low mileage '98 Corvette Convertible is in excellent stock condition like the day it rolled out of the factory. It features the original 5.7L SF1 V8 (345 horsepower) engine with the original 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Along with all of the standard options, the car comes with adjustable sport leather bucket seats, dual zone air conditioning, six way power passenger seat, memory package, AM/FM stereo with CD player, body side moldings, fog lamps, color keyed front floor mats. The car also comes with its original window sticker. The paint is excellent and shows very well cosmetically both inside and out.
