You don't need to buy that family sedan when the collectable, low-mileage sports car of your dreams is at a value price. This 2002 Chevrolet Corvette has that perfect balance of legendary pedigree and modern convenience.
A red Corvette is the American dream, but if you also have more sophisticated tastes, this is the right one to get. Magnetic Red Metallic has the bright presence that you want for this all-American, but it also has a deeper luster that feels like a more refined maroon. And we always love to see the factory paint shine this nicely, because it's a true sign of care. 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. Plus, there are upgraded quad exhaust tips in the rear to remind everyone what a powerful force a Corvette is. But the best feature of this C5 is the distinctive low, long hood of the Corvette that gives it a classic appearance connecting it with previous generations. That's part of the point of owning a true classic. This coupe has been cherished for over 15 years, and now it's time to buy in at a value price before its vintage status (and selling price) rises any higher.
Averaging around 2,500 miles a year means this has received a lot less seat time than a commuter machine. That's why the sporty tan leather buckets look so pristine. Corvettes come loaded right out of the box, and this one has plenty of great modern features. It includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel, airbags, AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer, power windows, power locks, anti-theft system, keyless entry, and power seats for the passenger and driver. Plus, if you look below the climate control, you'll spot a Sirius satellite radio receiver that has a lifetime subscription. And if that didn't already sound like a road trip ready classic, great upgrades like the dual zone automatic climate control and windshield heads up display (HUD) will convince you this was meant for the open road. Plus, while all Corvette coupes have targa tops, this one has the optional glass roof panel you can put in place on those days when you want the all sunshine but not the weather. There's a real trunk in the C5, which makes it the perfect adventure companion. On any golf weekend, it can carry the clubs and luggage – and there's still room to stow the targa top!
The LS1 V8 was a huge leap forward in Corvette technology. And this numbers-matching original 5.7-liter V8 is effortlessly powerful, suitably quiet, and surprisingly economical. The original rating for this motor was an impressive 350 hp, but this one has upped its game even further with a Corsa performance exhaust. So this one has an upgrade in power and an even nicer exhaust note. At cruising speeds this is a very comfortable, and the four-speed automatic transmission provides an effortless overdrive. This coupe comes with power steering, anti-lock brakes, four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, and a fully independent double-wishbone suspension. So all Corvettes are made to be the meanest Saturday night cruisers around, but this one is also good for the cross-country road trips.
Here's a highly original Corvette has been in loving care, and the included the maintenance records and original owner's manual is the proof. This is a future classic an affordable price, so we know it will be gone soon. Call today!!!
