1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
1999 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Corvette didn't always call Kentucky home, however in 1953, the first 300 were built by hand in Flint, Michigan, just after General Motors unveiled the Corvette as a “dream car” at the Motorama show in New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel. The following year, production moved to St. Louis. In June of 1981, Corvette production transferred from St. Louis to Bowling Green, Kentucky. The facility has remained the exclusive home of the Corvette for over 30 years. Known around the world as America's sports car, the Corvette exemplifies the definition of innovation.
For consignment here at Classic Auto Mall is a 1999 Corvette. With over 65 plus Corvette models here representing nearly every year, this is only the second 1999! A nice clean example, with a beautiful red exterior, pristine canvas convertible top in contrasting tan, and a tan and black leather interior, it was played with then neatly put away for the next time, not unlike a favorite toy!
Near perfect Torch Red fiberglass is draped over the high-performance chassis of this car. Hidden headlights, and integrated bumpers provide the aero package that can whisk you down the highway with just a touch of the throttle. A tan canvas convertible top, which functions flawlessly is in very nice condition, and has a clear glass rear window. This style Corvette wins the award for best rear styling with the round imbedded taillights, and the quad exhaust piercing out the center of the integrated rear bumper. 17” 5-spoke polished wheels are upfront and 18” in the rear.
Sporty tan leather buckets grab you with a sit inside. Black door panels with nearly every power control one could want, border these buckets. Leather is in good condition and holding up very nicely. A heads-up display, along with cruise control, a power memory seat, power telescoping steering wheel all wrapped up in a curved dash that presents very clean. Black carpet floods the floors and is in very nice condition. Ride control and active handling knobs are conveniently located just behind the shift lever.
A well-manicured 345HP 5.7Liter LS1 V8 is seen with a front flip of the hood. This has EFI, and a T56 6-speed manual transmission attached. The 3.42 upgraded rear axle configuration, and active handling package handle the power this active mill produces.
Extreme clean sums it up underneath looking very close to showroom with a touch of patina from just plain old enjoying this fine sports car. C5 Corvette suspension all around as are 4-wheel power disc brakes. Noted are added slotted and cross drilled brake rotors.
An extremely quick starter, and runner. This LS1 V8 can push this car very quickly up to speed, and due to the comfortable interior, even with the top down, it is hard to tell exactly how fast you are really traveling. Overall a good driving experience, and easy manual shifter. All the power options are functional, and the stereo sounds fab!
The second of only 2 1999 Corvettes currently in inventory, and this one is well cared for, played with and nicely put away in a temp controlled garage, well maintained, and is just a fun car to drive. Nothing like being low to the ground and taking a corner like it is not even there…Wild!
