Finding a great deal on a well maintained 2001 Chevrolet Corvette is always a welcomed proposition. But when you can find a rare six-speed example that lets you get to take full control over this icon's performance V8, well then, you know you're looking at something quite special.
While we all love a red Corvette, this golden gray hue is a great choice for someone who wants to stand out without using a dated color. And the factory original shade of Light Pewter Metallic still looks fantastic today thanks to years of care. Corvette owners are some of the most fastidious and mindful owner groups around. In fact, we have a recent receipt for $8k in recent maintenance. And when this coupe wasn't out being enjoyed, it was tucked away under garage care. That's why all the body panels look terrific, and the light rolls evenly across the slick design that was made to cheat the wind. The factory alloy wheels nicely coordinate with the car's color, which allow the red brake calipers to boldly showcase this car performance, even when parked.
The tan leather nicely coordinates with the exterior color. This is good news, because we know you're going to take the targa roof out quite often to share this total package with the world. You and your passenger get supportive bucket seats, and they have so little wear we suspect there was a recent investment in a correct replacement. These seats are power adjustable so you can always find the perfect driving position. Plus, as a premium performance machine, the Corvette has more great modern features, like dual zone climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual airbags, cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, and an AM/FM/CD stereo system by Bose.
The LS1 V8 was a huge leap forward in Corvette technology. The 5.7-liter V8 is effortlessly powerful, suitably quiet, and surprisingly economical. The factory rating for this motor was an impressive 350 hp. But this numbers-matching original engine has upped its game even further with a Halltech cold air intake and an upgraded dual exhaust. So it's the kind of modification that doesn't take away from this car's heart of originality, but does give you a fine hit of added power and great rumbling sound. Plus, you get full control over the V8 with the six-speed manual transmission – a rare option that will continue to grow in desirability as this coupe matures into full classic status. It has all the right moves on the road thanks to four-wheel disc brakes, ABS, power steering, and a fully independent double-wishbone suspension. So this is the kind of affordable modern sports car that will keep you searching for the backroads home.
You're looking at a great driving future classic that has been given the right recent investments to keep it feeling tight and right on the road. In fact, the only problem we can see is that you're not the only one who recognizes a good deal. So hurry if you don't want to miss out. Call today!!!
