2000 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
2000 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
The Corvette crossed flag logo originally started out by using an American Flag, crossed with a checkered flag. Federal law prohibits the use of the flag in any advertising, so they had to come up with another flag. Chevrolet being of French origin, they decided to use at the French symbol for peace, the Fleur-de-lis, with the checkered flag. Over the years it has gone through many iterations, but the basic principles still exist.
For consignment a C5 Corvette with a LS2 performance engine, upgraded leather seat covers, some carbon fiber accessories and buttoned up with 60,201 original 2-owner miles. This is an example of being passionate about your car!
Bathed in light Pewter Metallic, all panels are straight and true and the gaps are good, as expected for fiberglass. A rare Motor City Mold carbon fiber hood replaces the fiberglass on the bonnet. There is a removable targa top panel with a sunshade that covers from the swept back windscreen to a B pillared roof rear. A roll bar has the curved rear greenhouse glass floating above it. We note a much more rounded design, almost bulbous for this generation, with indented side panels with an air intake in the front quarters. HID headlights are now on this car and make driving at night a breeze. Add the PIAA 1100x driving fog lights, and it will be your own personal rolling major league baseball stadium during a night game! Snazzy honeycomb polished wheels are all around and wrapped by brand new Michelin AS3 tires. 4 sweet sounding chromed exhaust pipes exit center stage in the rear.
Utilizing upgraded two-tone leathers in black and tan which cover curvaceous buckets that are form fitted to the driver and passenger, you are in a sporty comfort zone. These custom new foam inserted seats front a black dash peppered with carbon fiber accents and perform the same undulating curvature as the snazzy seats. Within one carbon fiber panel is a fab Pioneer stereo with CD player and Satellite Radio capabilities. This unit pumps ohms back to multi digital Alpine amps on the rear deck and out to high end speakers and a sub-woofer. Dynamat sound insulation has also been added throughout. For the Italian in you, there is a CarVaggio steering wheel in matching seat two tone, and Corvette crossed flag badge in the center. Near perfect carpet in tan, floods the floors.
Cartex built the LS2 362ci V8 engine complete with their 4x heads and mild 4E custom grind cam. New comp 921 valve springs were put in in 2018. Cometic head gaskets, Diamond pistons, and Manley H-Lite rods were also spec'd on. Electronic fuel injection with a Wilson Fast intake manifold, and VR cold air intake is on top. Bolted on back of this healthy mill is an RPM Level 4 transmission, an SFI flexplate, and a Billet cone coupler. A 3.90 geared rear is on and a Dewitts high capacity radiator with dual 3500CFM fans and a transmission fluid cooler keep everything in running temp range.
An amalgamation of aluminum and sturdy rust-free steel make up the ground effect influenced undercarriage. No drips no repairs and just clean C5 suspension all around and 4-wheel disc brakes are noted as well as QA-1 tunable front shocks.
Like a dream in a nutshell. With all the bling and add ons she drives beautifully, handles like it's on rails, and has a really nice interior. No problems or nonfunctioning buttons or instruments here. A/C blows cold.
As the consigner states this is a gas and go car, with practically the only original parts being the doors and rear quarters. Highly modified to be visually stunning, high performing, and comfortable to look at and drive, we give you the Pewter Metallic streak, and you will not be disappointed.
