It is hard to believe that it has been over 25 years since the birth of the C5 Corvette - a whole new Corvette. It was calm and collected, even on very rough pavement, due to its revolutionary new 'backbone' frame design.
This 3-owner 1998 Coupe is a beautiful example of an extremely popular model. The original Torch Red exterior has refreshed with a professional premium clearcoat finish and it is stunning. The owner (12 years) has added black accents from Eckler's to the hood, quarter panels and subtle spoiler. Corvette Z06-style aftermarket alloys mount Hancook performance radial tires and the 'Targa top' is a one-piece design. The upgraded interior is in excellent condition. C5 Corvettes deliver all of the convenience features as standard equipment including climate-control air conditioning, AM/FM/CD, power driver seat, power locks, keyless entry, power tinted windows, tilt wheel and cruise control. The owner has added new black/red leather upholstery, new floor mats and a sound-proofing package.
The 5.7L LS1 engine of the C5 produces 345 BHP @5600 RPM utilizing Sequential Multi-Port Injection (MPI). Torque is delivered through a 4L60-E 4-speed automatic rear transaxle. Standard axle ratio for the automatic C5 is 2.73:1. The chassis is equipped with power steering and 4-wheel ABS power disc brakes. An upgraded C6-sized Corsa exhaust has also been installed. A current AutoCheck report is provided with the car. This stunning C5 Corvette will certainly relocate to a new garage very soon - hopefully yours. ALL VEHICLES SOLD ""AS IS"".
