Bowling Green is the Mecca when talking to Corvette enthusiasts! The factory that builds and produces the American icon and where the waiting list to be a worker is long and the prestige that comes with it is a badge of honor for all that punch the clock there. The changes over the 8 generations of the Vette is substantial and one thing that is always common is the next year or the next generation will be faster, lighter, and more eye catching then before.
As the Corvette entered into the new millennium the Corvette top brass wanted to reintroduce a legend so they flipped through the history book of this beast model and decided to pay tribute to the famous 1963 Z06 on the C2 platform. In 2001 Chevrolet rolled out the Z06 with a lightened setup, stiffer suspension, revised gearing ratios, titanium exhaust and the highly tuned LS1 V8 engine with 385HP.
This stunning car was picked up by the first owner in September of 2000 from John Jochem Chevrolet in Stuart FL where it remained in the same ownership till 2015 where the second owner acquired the car and enjoyed it till just a few months ago. Both owners kept the car in exceptional care and the first owner kept a log book with each gas fill up, service recored and documented till he sold it with 20k miles. The car is in remarkable condition for a 17yr old car and with the low miles and uniqueness of the first year Z06 it is one that will hold its value and demand a premium. This car was ordered as one of the 5,773 that were built in 2001 and it is 1 of 1,719 that were ordered in black and 1 of 738 that had the two-tone black and torch red leather interior. Further options were the; memory package, electrochromic mirrors, and color keyed floor mats.
Vehicle comes with some service receipts, owner log, original build sheet, owner's manuals, factory MSRP and other Z06 documentation and paperwork. Vehicle is clean and ready for next owner and one that will not disappoint once you get in and mash the throttle. It has one heck of a roar that will catch many off guard.
