1999 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
1999 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe
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” in 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. GM began production of the esteemed Corvette in Bowling Green in 1981, and 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, a 1999 Corvette. With over 55 models representing nearly every year, this is only the second model in house from 1999! An original two owner car, played with, then neatly put away for the next time, we now have a low, low mileage (19,255 confirmed) car that has led a good life, and is now offered for another's enjoyment.
Near perfect black 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 glass see through roof, and large greenhouse (it's a gas!) rear glass are seen for the roofline. 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 Firethorn Red leather buckets grab you as you take a seat inside the cockpit. Black door panel uppers, with nearly every power control one could want border these buckets. A red lower molded plastic with large built in Bose speaker is under the curved pull handle/power toggle panel on each door. Leather for seats is in good condition with a few wrinkles, and areas of wear, but far from terrible. 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 cleanly. Red carpet floods the floors and is in very nice condition. An oversized glove box is 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 4L60E 4-speed automatic transmission attached. The 2.73 limited slip rear axle configuration is on to 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 suspension is seen both front and back as are 4-wheel power disc brakes. Chrome exhaust tips are also noted.
An extremely quick starter, and runner. This LS1 V8 can push this car very quickly up to speed, and due to the comfortable interior, it is hard to tell exactly how fast you are really traveling. Overall a good driving experience, and smooth shifting for the automatic. All the power options are functional, and the stereo sounds fab!
ONLY the second 1999 Corvette currently in inventory, and this one is well cared for, has super low original miles put on. This was played with then 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!
